Lost for fifty years, Moonshine Cove is publishing for the first time deceased author Rose Campion's newly discovered manuscript. Written in 1957, it is an authentic period piece of romantic suspense from the era of tail fins and rock & roll.

Set in small town America, high school senior and fiery flame redhead Susan Munroe collects boys who have money like the other dolls collect Elvis records, but has she met her match when the handsome Alex Lawson comes to town?

 Sue wants just two things from life, dough, lots of dough, and her very own Prince Charming. With Walt Stanlee wrapped around her little finger, the son of the richest man in town, she's on her way to getting the dough. In the midst of fending off Walt's pleas to get married until he comes up with more cash, she falls for the suave and debonaire Alex as hard as a load of bricks dropped from an eighty-story building. Running off with him to be married, this small-town mistress of the scam is soon left with nothing, including her virginity. Vowing to recoup her losses and to get even, she lands herself in a situation involving blackmail and murder. Finally, she is forced to decide whether Walt was her real Prince Charming all along.

"NO TIME TO CRY may be set in 1957 Kentucky , but it’s definitely not Richie Cunningham’s 'Happy Days.'  Sue Munroe, a small-town gold-digging Lolita, mistress of the con, wants two things—riches and her own Prince Charming—and she’ll go to extremes to get them.  Filled with intrigue, scandal, romance, betrayal and murder, this romantic suspense novel is a sizzling guilty pleasure read.”—Carole Bellacera, award-winning author of Tango's Edge and the upcoming Lily of the Springs

Rose Campion's fresh and engaging voice comes through loud and clear on every page of No Time to Cry. With its vivid descriptions and fascinating characters, this book grabs you from the start and won't let go.”—Heather Huffman, author of Ties That Bind and Suddenly A Spy
