Book Clips: Being Josie by Darcy Mcinnes

September 1, 2016

In This Episode of Book Clips Darcy McInnes reads from her novel, Being Josie.

Synopsys for Being Josie by Darcy McInnes

The dream was terrifying and vivid, but when Seattle resident Josie Pace awakes, all she can remember are two details: a newspaper headline from the 1970s and an unusual name—Tambra.

A metaphysical crime drama, Being Josie follows two women separated by time, yet somehow intimately connected.

Certain the dream means something, Josie digs into the past and discovers a woman named Tambra Delaney who died in a nearby city in the seventies, murdered by her neighbor, Vivian Latham.

Josie can't shake the feeling that the official story of Tambra’s murder is deeply wrong, and Vivian was innocent. She continues to dig, discovering Tambra’s daughter and husband are still alive.

Something powerful binds Josie to Tambra, driving the young woman to the site of Tambra’s death. She’s determined to right a decades-old injustice. There’s just one problem: she has no proof beyond her own inexplicable connection to the murder. 

And then there’s policewoman Laura Ramirez. Josie is drawn to her too. That attraction, at least, is easily explained. Or is it? As Josie gets to know Laura she begins to suspect that there's much more to her attraction to the policewoman than meets the eye.
