Local author Kaira Rouda hooked readers with Beneath the Surface last year and now the unlikable but irresistibly addictive Kingsley family is back for Under the Palms (May 21, Thomas & Mercer). This title would make a great addition to summer roundups, reviews, or excerpts.

“Under the Palms” launches on May 21

Under the direction of the Kingsleys’ new president, Paige, the family has gathered for a weekend retreat at a luxurious Laguna Beach resort.

Still clinging to the hope of succession are the sons of Richard Kingsley – the family patriarch and CEO John, the oldest, who’s clawed his way back from a dark tragedy and Paige’s estranged husband, Ted, the golden boy. When Richard’s ex and his wayward daughter join the fray, Paige finds herself with two fast allies. They know a secret that could shatter the family legacy. Call it leverage, call it revenge, the Kingsley women believe they have the upper hand. But as the power games begin, greater threats than the howling Santa Ana winds are coming. Because this weekend, amid so much greed and betrayal, no Kingsley is safe. It’s family. Watch your back.

Rouda lives in Southern California with her family and is at work on her next novel. She is a founding member of the Killer Author Club, supporting other suspense and mystery authors.
