Carson Chance, P. I.

Saturday, June 11th, 2016, 11:00-1:00 p.m.

N. E. Brown joins us Saturday with her latest novel, a romantic private eye story set in Dallas.

carson-chance-cover-340wCarson Chance is a young Vietnam War veteran with war injuries and bad memories who returns to Dallas in 1964 to begin rebuilding his life. Returning from a VA hospital in Louisiana, twenty-four year old Carson stops to pick up a beautiful seventeen year old hitchhiker named Amy. Now a private investigator, Carson offers Amy a chance to get back on her feet only to find there’s a dark side to her past and a rocky road ahead for the two of them. This is a “modern-historical” romance set against the rock-and-roll era of the 1960s when casual sex and recreational drugs were the norm.

N. E. Brown is author of the Texas based historical fiction Indignities series, much of which takes place in Galveston, Texas. She retired from a successful career in real estate to pursue her passion for writing.
