What should a wife believe? The words of her husband or the diary of his mistress? From the author of Secret Society comes a tale of love and jealousy in which two women struggle to separate fact from fiction.
Monica counts her blessings -- she has a husband who is not only devoted to her but is also committed to being a strong, caring father to their twin sons. When Carlos surprises her with an unforgettably romantic getaway, Monica knows her husband is still very much in love with her -- and she with him. But an unexpected package threatens to change everything Monica's ever believed about her husband.
Angela has adopted a sex-them-and-leave-them attitude toward the married men she's bedded over the last five years. Then she met Monica's Carlos. Now she will stop at nothing to get him for herself -- even if that means destroying her own life and another woman's family.
Miasha's by-the-numbers potboiler follows the travails of an unlikely trio whose lives get upended by the vengeful act of a woman scorned. Suicidal Angela sends a diary purportedly detailing her steamy affair with Carlos to his wife, Monica. At first, Monica doesn't believe that her loving husband would two-time her, but after reading a convincing account of how Carlos bedded her best friend, she puts him in the hospital and herself in jail. Guilt hits Angela after she watches news coverage of Monica's attempted murder conviction, prompting her to confess that she made up the diary as revenge on Carlos for not requiting her love. Monica sees her sentence reduced and, a few pages later, snags a half-million-dollar book contract. The moral? "God has total control and everything happens for a reason," or so Monica writes to a former cellmate. Miasha (Secret Society) can cook up a sordid soap opera plot, but the flaccid characters, awkward pacing and lack of a sense of setting will frustrate readers looking for something more than a hair-salon drama.
