‘Roadside Diner’ By Ron Robinson

A half million in cash embezzled from white collar criminals. She’s unbelievable!
Using her creative bookkeeping skills, Ashley is a thief stealing from thieves. Now she’s on the run, branded as a fugitive from justice.
When Ashley finds herself pursued by a pair of assassins looking to recover a half million in cash, she takes refuge at a roadside diner on historic Route 66. But things get complicated when she connects with a deputy sheriff and spends the night with him at the motel next door. Realizing she’s made a huge mistake, Ashley must decide whether to stay—endangering the restaurant and crew—or leave the remote outpost and keep running.
