Charm Town (Murder Mystery, Romance, Drama)
For American social worker Peyton Stanfield, it was the usual start to another school year at Montebello High School. The students are anxious and excited about school and struggling with managing lives that intersect with the usual distractions of adolescence but also substances, crime, violence, and family dysfunction. However, a chance encounter with Hamilton Banks, a handsome, captivating, and wealthy Jamaican businessman forever changes her life and immediately consumes it. He is unlike any man she knows: passionate, mystifying, and married to the president of the Charm Town School Board. His presence, persistence, and desire for her attention lead to a socially forbidden love affair. Committed to the students and their life stories, challenges, and triumphs, Peyton’s willingness to engage in Hamilton’s world reveals the dark side of the Charm Town School District.
Surprising, funny, and thought-provoking, CHARM TOWN shines a spotlight on the lives of the children in urban school settings, the corruption of the school district and the vulnerability of love relationships.
