About The Rocky Road
After searching the city for some rocky road ice cream, Gary Shuley, an independent industrial video producer and Pam Chapell, an aspiring writer, find themselves emerged in conversation so magnetic, it's as if they are hypnotized by the fascination of each others mesmerizing charm. Pam's laughter sounds symphonic to Gary and their smiles and eye contact at dinner, feels almost choreographed. Wasn't it ironic how they met after ordering the same ice cream flavor only hours before? Is it love at first sight? Maybe, maybe not! This romantic suspense thriller starts as the intriguing relationship blossoms. However the love at first sight scenario comes to an abrupt halt, when Pam disappears without a trace and piece by piece the story unravels into an exciting page-turner that has enough twists and turns to make you want to put on your seat belt.
