What is Who Is Erin Carter? about?

Erin Carter appears to be an ordinary woman, an American living in Barcelona. She’s married to a wealthy man, has a wonderful daughter named Harper, is a good teacher, and has the sort of quiet life one would expect.

When she and Harper are caught in a supermarket robbery, one of the robbers seems to recognize Erin. At this point, this simple teacher breaks out some stunning fighting skills to take the crooks down. While she brushes it off as just getting lucky, it’s obvious there’s more to Erin than there seems.

As various forces, from the cops to the mob, gather around her, Erin is forced to face the secrets of her past, which can jeopardize her family.

"“Meet Erin – Mum, Wife, Teacher living the expat dream in Spain. Or so we think until a robbery in a supermarket reveals her to be a badass fighter! Erin is clearly not who she says she is, but how far will she go to keep her true identity at bay?”"
