Featured Book: Family Pieces

Karsen Woods seems to be living a charmed life from her hunkalicious boyfriend to her picture-perfect Midwestern roots. Away at college, even the necklace she wears serves as a constant connection home. A family tradition began when her grandfather handmade each immediate relative an interlinking charm. Each piece was crafted in the shape of a puzzle piece, fitting perfectly together. But when the unexpected death of her mother turns her world upside down, she discovers there is a missing piece of her treasured family tradition and her life as she once knew it may never be the same. 

Addison Reynolds resides in her posh Manhattan condominium and wraps her personal identity around running Urbane, the magazine empire built by her father. In a moment of haste, Addison divulges her deepest secret to her closest friend Emily. It is a secret she never intended to disclose. Could one choice, one secret bond two unlikely women forever? 

Mixing romantic elements, a bit of glam, a pinch of reality show and a dash of mystery, Family Pieces is the perfect weekend escape.
When the inspiration first struck to begin writing a novel, Misa Rush had no idea where she would find the time. Most of Family Pieces was written between one o'clock and two o'clock in the morning. Add two pregnancies, a three-year-old, a husband, a household, then throw in an economic downturn for her insurance agency just to complicate the task a wee bit more and it is sheer determination that she completed the task. Determination has never been lacking in her persona. Growing up, Misa competed in gymnastics for eighteen years, including four on a full-ride scholarship to Eastern Michigan University. She also ran two and a half marathons, the half of which holds a story all its own. Misa graduated from Arizona State University with a master's degree in business administration. She currently resides in Gilbert, Arizona with her husband and two children. For more information, connect with Misa on http://misarush.com, Facebook and Twitter.
