Behr Facts Releases Oct. 28

Sunday October 25, 2015

Big, burly CEO Abe Behr is dismayed to discover someone—possibly a family member—is stealing from Behr Construction, which primarily employs Behr relatives. Abe takes the unprecedented step in hiring an outsider, likeable CPA Jeff Mason, to go over the books and help find the culprit. They are drawn to each other as they talk to workers, including Abe’s two younger brothers and their shifty cousin.

Since he has sacrificed romance all his life to build the business, Abe’s surprised by his feelings for the handsome Jeff. He’s even more shocked when they are confronted by bigotry in the Sierra Nevada foothills community, which is being inundated by gays moving from the San Francisco area. As he and Jeff get closer, Abe must come to grips with coming out to a family and community that aren’t very tolerant. Fortunately, being the head Behr helps him find his footing and grab onto love when it bites him.

Behr Facts is the third in the Foothills Pride series after What's in a Name? and Redesigning Max.  Coming in February or March 2016 is When Adam Fell, the fourth in the series.  In the meantime, my short story "Blame It on the Fruitcake" will be published in the DSP 2015 holiday anthology.
