Edward Booth – who is not above blackmailing Reilly to get what he wants.

Leaning On the Lyrics
by Linda Hebert
When tough times left her not knowing which way to turn, this life-long music lover found solace and even some direction in her favorite songs. "They say that writers need to find their voice and identify their muse (source of inspiration). I know that my muse is music and my voice is a collective one echoing the many songs stuck in my head. You see, since I was a little girl, I've paid close attention to the songs on the radio and somewhere along the way I subconsciously began storing memorable lyrics in the back of my mind, supposedly in case I might need to refer to them later. By the summer of 2007, 'later' had arrived in my life. This book is a whimsical journey of songs, many will bring you to Margaritaville."
