Somebody Has To Pay


Pat Tucker

Book Synopsis

From the author of Football Widows and Daddy’s maybe, a woman must face the consequences when she tells an unforgivable lie on national television.

After a very embarrassing appearance on the wildly popular syndicated show DNA Revealed, Dani Dawson is reevaluating her life. When she decided to identify Keeling as her daughter’s father, she didn’t think things would go as far as they did. Now she’s faced with mounting problems—and devastating consequences.

Keeling Lake’s life was flipped upside down for years after he was targeted by Dani in her carefully plotted paternity fraud. But now he’s out of jail, and he’s out to exact some revenge of his own. With his meddling mom at his side, Keeling may be headed for more problems than he bargained for.

As the schemes pile up and tensions rise, Dani and Keeling have a lot to learn about forgiveness and truth…before it’s too late.

Describe your writing style. 
I’m not sure I have a particular writing style.  It all depends on the story I’m trying to tell. Although I tend to be a creature of habit, when it comes to writing, I try not to adhere to any boundaries. That means I’m bound to come up with something different in each book.
Describe the two central characters in this book.  
The two central characters in Somebody Has to Pay are Dani and Arlene. Both are women who feel they deserve child support payment for different reasons. Dani knew Keeling didn’t father her child, but named him anyway and wants to keep receiving payments from him. Arlene was hired as a nanny, she had an affair with the husband who went back to his wife and when he dumped her, she tried to use their child as a pawn to get what she wanted.
