Author Biography

Rita M. Boehm’s childhood writing aspirations resurfaced when she considered retirement from a successful career in Contract Management. Career moves had taken her from New York to Colorado to suburban Maryland, near Washington D.C. — all great locations for story lines.

To date, Rita has published 7 books across a variety of genres: romantic suspense, cozy mystery, domestic thriller, WWII Nonfiction, and a labor-of-love children’s picture book, BLUEBIRDS IN THE GARDEN, which received the 2019 Best Children’s Book award from the Florida Writers Association.

Her most recent book, THE PRICE OF REVENGE, is an exciting, multi-award-winning domestic thriller at least partially inspired by the true story of a middle-aged police sergeant in Illinois whose considerably younger third wife went missing - and has never been found. He was finally convicted of killing his second wife. REVENGE chronicles the story of a young woman who, in her attempt to survive a similar situation , spends 20 years on the run until a final confrontation with her past.

Now living in The Villages, Florida, when she’s not writing, Rita enjoys gardening, golf, yoga, and most especially, riding her dressage horse, Kosi.

Reviewed by Alma Boucher for Readers' Favorite

The Price of Revenge is a gripping psychological thriller by Rita M. Boehm. The town's middle-aged police chief, Frank Peters, showed interest in Cathy, who had lost both her parents and the young man she was in love with. After Frank handed Cathy an envelope with the words Pine View Travel Agency printed all over it, she was left wondering how in the world she ended up traveling to Las Vegas with him. When she woke up in a hotel room, naked, alone, and bewildered, a Nevada marriage license was on display next to a picture of Cathy and Frank taken in a wedding chapel. Cathy faked her death and framed Frank for her murder after realizing that he was a killer and that she was next on his list.

Rita M. Boehm's The Price of Revenge was an exciting, bizarre, and terrifying roller coaster journey. The story was full of suspense, brutality, mystery, and resolve. I was hooked from the first page until the very last, and there was never a dull moment. I never knew what would happen next, and I was guessing until the end. The characters' histories were gradually exposed by their backstories, which made them likable. Cathy took all the necessary measures to avoid Frank, even at times having to run for her life. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat as I constantly wondered when Frank would appear again. The story was well-written and had a strong message. I was taken aback by the ending and did not see it coming.
