Grace Locke has been in a two-year tail spin since the unexpected death of her beloved husband. Only the needs of her two young children keep her from folding her tent altogether. Determined family members, at odds with each other, but with the same goal of helping Grace move on with her life, propel the beautiful young woman into the dating world.

After enduring one unsatisfactory date after another, Grace is ready to live a single life forever until she is introduced to Todd Harcourt. He’s smart, handsome and  romantic … but there are secrets that threaten to derail the budding relationship.

Marlies Perez is a Garden Valley resident and “47 Destinies: Discovering Grace” is her second  contemporary romance book.

The first, “47 Destinies,” is about Cora and Brent, two characters who also feature prominently in the second book.

A third book in the series, “47 Destinies: The Matriarch,” is due to be published in the fall of 2013 and Perez already has the fourth and final book in the series mapped out.

“I’ve always written short stories and poetry,” said Perez, ” but when I attended a conference in San Diego, I fell in love with the Hotel Del Coronado and started writing a story about it.”

That story became her first book. Perez’s curiosity about her characters and the motivation for their actions led her to writing other books in the “47 Destinies” series.

Perez works for the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs and has a busy family life, but said she doesn’t need to find time to write.

“I love writing so much that I have to find time to do the other things in my life,” she said.

“47 Destinies: Discovering Grace” is available locally at the Placerville News Company, 409 Main St. in Placerville. Both “47 Destinies” books can also be purchased online in paperback or Kindle Version at Amazon.com: $3.99 for Kindle version and $7.99 for paperback.
