Los Angeles, CA, July 18, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- In a steamy, no-holds-barred New York City, one country girl struggles to survive and thrive in The Million Dollar Therapist, a romantic thriller with a shocking moral dilemma at its core from author K. Lynch.
Carol Lindsey is a hardworking farmer’s daughter whose exceptional intelligence takes her to New York’s Columbia University. But her sheltered upbringing leaves her unprepared for the go-go world of the Big Apple—and the multitude of prowling men there.
At Columbia, she meets Dianne Merle, a firecracker of a woman who knows a thing or two about the opposite sex. At a fateful cocktail party, she points Carol to John Berkowitz, a gorgeous rising star at the top-drawer legal firm of Blakemore and Cohen. But as their romance heats up, Carol can’t shake the feeling of being unfulfilled. He remains aloof even after a marriage Carol hoped would bring them closer. And it gets worse: He’s been staying out later and later—but where? And with whom?
Ironically, the whole thing appears ready to collapse when Carol finishes her postgraduate work in counseling and opens a marriage therapy practice. That’s when things really get interesting. As Carol faces the possibility of being independent—and the accompanying economic pressures of raising a son alone—an emotionally troubled client enters her office. He brings with him the possibility of financial freedom. But he could also drag her into a world of murder—and bring about an ethical dilemma that just might obliterate everything she stands for.
Can Carol reconcile her virtue with the practical reality of living in modern New York? Will she ever find the true love that failed ever to appear in her stormy marriage?
Lynch paints a vivid portrait of a New York City that demands its denizens sink or swim. But it’s also a place, he shows, where true friendship thrives in the most unexpected of places. Through it all, The Million Dollar Therapist gives intimate glimpses into the high-stakes world of law, medicine and other high-powered occupations, revealing the richest among us are often the poorest emotionally.
