Someone To Watch Over Me by Fran Connor
If you love romantic thrillers with a strong female lead who refuses to be a victim, you’ll find this novel hits the mark. In 1930s Spain, Alicia has it all; youth, beauty, brains and wealthy parents in the sherry business.
It all comes crashing down when she kills the son of the corrupt local police chief for trying to rape her. Knowing she would not get a fair hearing, she dumps the body in a lake. Then the Civil War breaks out, her parents are murdered and the police chief discovers who killed his son. Alicia goes on the run and finds refuge with a gentle piano player in the Sierra Nevada where they try to stay out of the war. But the war comes to them.
This is an epic story of love, survival against the odds and the endurance of the human spirit.
