Tooth for Tooth

Dumped into single parenthood, Heather Williams has found a part-time job as a dental receptionist and a cozy apartment with her four-year-old daughter. Life finally looks safe and secure until her daughter reveals a terrifying secret that she’s been molested by her own father. While struggling with her feelings towards her new boss, Heather tries to get the help her daughter needs, navigate the court system, and protect the child from further harm. Tooth for Tooth novel cover Buy the book: Amazon or Smashwords

Review of Tooth for Tooth:

“The author has done a wonderful job of giving the reader a glimpse into the world of the Children’s Aid Society and what is involved when something like this happens. She has done her research and it shows. The nonsense that our main character endures within the legal system are realistic and I’m sure will ring true to anyone who has had to live through such a nightmare. Which makes this story all the more poignant. While this is hard to read because of the subject matter, the end result is a book that will leave you with a good feeling. A highly recommend it!”
