On the run from her criminal relatives, an Irish horsewoman faces a cursed future. Forced to choose between a promise to win the Kentucky Derby for the family who gave her shelter or save her drunken father and autistic brother when they are a no show at Churchill Downs days before the big race. Dr. Bridie O'Malley, DVM, knows there is danger on the horizon for when a horseman misses the greatest two minutes in sports, it is not by choice. Neither is the fact that Bridie can’t choose her relatives. Back in Ireland, the O’Malley clan is now the Irish mob and now, after fifteen years of exile, they’ve found her and want payback.

With the help of her lifelong friends, a forensic accountant for the FBI and a Fashion Editor for Beauté magazine, Bridie must unravel the clues before the mob learns Mickey's secret. #runfamilyisforever
