Every day I look out my office window and see this:
And typically from October to March, when I stand up from my desk to take a break, I see this:
While the winter landscape can be utterly gorgeous, by January we’re dying to leave our winter jackets and gear behind, and escape the cold.
This year we headed to sunny Las Vegas to enjoy the heat and catch a few shows. Unfortunately, a cold front had moved into the city and we were forced to take our winter jackets along with us. (Yes, seriously, I’m not kidding!)
One of the highlights of our trip was our visit to The Mob Museum. Located in the downtown section of the city, we hopped onto the local transit bus and made the six mile journey from Caesars Palace north to 300 Stewart Avenue.
No doubt you’re wondering why we would choose that particular site to visit.
Book four in the Caught Between series, titled Caught Between the Mob and a Hot Cop, is set on Serendipity Island at the Heavenly Estates Retirement Home. This story is about a plain Jane princess who is trying to save her family’s legacy, a hot cop who’s investigating a money laundering scheme, and retired mobsters determined to keep their home.
Of course, my story won’t have the violence level of the movie The Godfather. In fact, there won’t be any mobster violence at all. Instead, you’ll find humor, hijinks, a love story or two, and aging mobsters who will do anything to save their home, even if it means resurrecting their old careers.
Have you ever been to The Mob Museum in Las Vegas? Do you think a laugh-out-loud romance story with mobsters is possible? Let me know in the comments!
