Book 6: The FBI gives Jessica control of a small hotel chain. Classic hotels in the older part of town, Jessica sees a chance to help build pride in the heritage of seven towns – including her own. As she rebuilds these hotels, she finds love with an FBI agent who sings Willie Nelson songs, a Mafia don who reads Shakespeare, and a beauty queen. But two Mafia families have a very different ending planned for Jessica, as does the FBI. They cost her one love and leave her struggling to survive. She loses much, but Jessica is a fighter – and a lover.
