In this intriguing who-done-it Mindy and Kim give us a look into the life of a former supermodel that has formed her own skincare company.
Twenty four year old Juliette Taylor was fed up with her life as a supermodel, she wanted to make a change but didn’t quite know how until she meets a handsome stranger in an airport. While stranded in the airport for hours they form a life changing bond, but instead of acting in haste they both pledge to meet again as soon as they have their lives on course.
Fast forward twenty five years Juliette is co-owner of a skincare company, JT Lady, which provides beauty products to salons and spas. Juliette is well known for her seminars for Christian ladies that serve others, she even has a catchy phrase for it; “Isn't it time someone took care of YOU for a change?”
While en route to Palm Grotto Spa where she is holding a weekend retreat, Juliette encounters another supermodel from the old days, Raven the beautiful fiery redhead with an equally fiery temper. Surprisingly Raven is also headed to Palm Grotto, and when she learns Juliette is headed there Raven becomes enraged and threatens to kill Juliette. Less than 24 hours later Raven is dead and everyone thinks Juliette could have had something to do with it. Juliette needs someone to help her solve Raven’s murder because it seems the police aren’t doing a very good job.
Twenty five years later Juliette’s TOTGA (the one that got away), the mystery man from the airport, Marcus Stone shows up and attempts to reconnect with Juliette. Will he be the help she needs to solve the case? Or is he there because he was sent by the FBI to spy on Juliette?
This is a wonderful story that will keep you guessing with its many twists and turns. I enjoyed reading about the various spa treatments and thinking “I wish I could be there”! This dynamic duo of Mindy and Kim seemed to work well together because this was an enjoyable story that left me wanting to read more by them! Thanks ladies, great job!
Buy Mindy's book at Amazon, CBD, Barnes & Noble or other bookstores.

It is mentioned in this review that Juliette hosts a retreat for Christian ladies that minister to others, so my question is; Are you in Christian Ministry? You can also share what type of ministry if you would like. This is just another fun way for us to get to know you a little better.
