Belle Isle

Cherita Lawington looks to become the first female mayor of the City of Detroit. What should be a normal election will be far from it, especially if she follows through with her pledge to stop the sale of the city’s beloved island park, Belle Isle. 


Cherita will be going against the plans of a vicious gangster who will stop at nothing with his plan to turn Belle Isle into a privately owned casino gambling nightmare.

Gerry and Cherita have loved each other since childhood. Their love finally blossoms right along with the suspense that enfolds when Gerry emerges and undertakes the extreme measures that only his deplorable condition enables.


As the newly elected mayor Cherita stops the gangster’s plot to own and destroythe beloved Belle Isle. Belle Isle, a small island floating in the middle if the Detroit River, just about
