A compelling story of deceit, heartbreak, and revenge played out against the paradise setting of Marco Island, Florida. Everyone has a tipping point and Lynn Erhardt is on the cusp of meeting hers. Lynn’s marriage is thrown into turmoil when Raymond, her husband, comes home from his boat ride without her beloved dog Suzie. Raymond declares the loss of their pet as an unfortunate accident. Lynn doesn’t buy his explanation and is riddled with the suspicion that Raymond cruelly killed the dog. This obsession eats away at their relationship. Lynn wrestles with her emotions as their marriage teeters on the edge. The fixation on Suzie’s demise, coupled with the ills in Lynn’s marriage and the desire for retribution triggers a decision that leads to unforeseen and potentially dire consequences.

Margaret Schwab is a Marco Island snowbird from Buffalo, New York. The picturesque setting of Marco Island is the backdrop for her recent novel GUILT OR NOT. Travels and studies in

Asia led to her first novel TO DIE FOR… which is set in war-torn Afghanistan. Margaret earned a Master’s degree in American history from SUNY at Buffalo and a Master’s degree in Asian studies from New York University.
