First time author, PV resident novel now available

diane-headshotParadise Valley resident and first-time author Diane Lynn is enjoying brisk sales in the opening days of her mystery-romance novel, ‘The Secondary Target’ sales on

Ms. Lynn grew up in Virginia and pursued her nursing career in Baltimore, Maryland,

where she specialized in surgery and emergency medicine. Her first-hand experience with trauma authenticates this page-turning first novel.

Ms. Lynn met her husband, an attorney, and relocated to Phoenix where they raised their two children.

Her passion has always been writing, but raising a family and managing a successful career, left her little time to write, according to a press release.

Ms. Lynn is now happy to have completed her first novel, with a sequel to follow, and is looking forward to continuing pursuit of her passion for writing. She hopes to continue doing so, well into her retirement years.

According to the release, the book is about  a high-profile divorce lawyer with a knack for facing off against abusive spouses. But now Beth Scott is fighting for her own life after a brutal attack at the hands of a violent intruder.

Suffering from stab wounds, blunt force trauma, and internal bleeding, she’ll be lucky to make it out of an Upper East Side hospital alive. And, to make matters worse, she has no memory of the ordeal or the identity of the attacker.

As an investigation into her case begins, Beth embarks on a long journey toward recovery with the help of savvy emergency room doctor Brandon Burton. But as detectives discover shocking new leads, and an old relationship is rekindled, conflicting emotions come to light—sparking questions about love, loyalty, and betrayal.
