Book: ‘The Kennedy Half-Dollar”
Author: Mahree Moyle
Publisher: iUniverse, 282 pages, 2013
Available: Local bookstores

In her new true crime memoir, “The Kennedy Half-Dollar,” published by iUniverse, Mahree Moyle presents the story of a young woman, growing up and growing wise.

After high school graduation, Seely is forced to move out of her parents’ home. She reluctantly decides to move to Hawaii and stay with her sister until she can find a place of her own. When she is offered a job with a well-known nightclub in Waikiki serving cocktails, Seely soon finds herself caught up in organized crime.

Fast-paced and packed with lots of misadventures, “The Kennedy Half-Dollar” sports an incredible plot.

Moyle noted it offers lots of food for thought.

Can a small token given with love and goodwill hold power? Do good luck charms really exist?

Readers can decide.

“This book has a lot to think about and consider,” said Moyle. “Much of what Seely faced on her path through life is confronted by others. Readers will be able to relate.”

Additionally, the book takes the unique role of DJ. Moyle offers musical cues throughout the book, signaling readers to play certain songs during certain scenes.

Playing music in the background while reading “The Kennedy Half-Dollar” gives the reader the full experience of Seely’s world, said Moyle.

“It may be difficult at first to read with music playing, but after the second or third song, it seems strange to read without it.”

Moyle will be at Face in a Book, 4359 Town Center Blvd., Suite 113, in El Dorado Hills, for a book signing on Friday, Aug. 24 from 5 to 7 p.m. For more information call 916-941-9401.

Moyle was born in Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula. She graduated from Irvine College of Business in Southern California. For the last 23 years, Moyle, a single mother of three, has lived in the foothills of Northern California. She is currently working on a math and science degree.

The artwork for the book is by Hadasha Benoit.
