Lies of the past
Renee has spent half her life pretending to be someone she isn't. Now she has the chance to be herself and have a relationship with her family, but all she ends up doing is hurting those she loves. She's finally ready to live without the lies of the past but she needs to learn from them too.
Lies for a future
Greg has never told his son the truth. He lied to protect the future, and someone has figured it out and is after him now. Suspected in a murder he didn't commit, and out in the open where the elusive Sir lurks, he will have to fight his hardest battle ever. Left by the woman he loves, he must figure out that to live in the future, you must let go of the lies.
Truth to survive
When Renee and Greg finally come together, their lies will either bury them or resurrect them. If they want a future beyond the lies, they'll have to learn that even when the truth hurts, it must be told.
Renee in a new light! ❤️
I have read one previous Securities International book by this author, Identity's Kiss, which is Anthony's story. This book, Forever's Embrace, is Renee and Greg's story. I loved both of the books. I love the whole Securities International setting and how all of their stories intertwine with each other, mostly without any of them knowing, since they're all so good at keeping secrets.
I think because I read Anthony and Paige's story first and was kind of partial to them, I have to admit, I went into this book, at first, not really liking Renee all that much. Greg I loved from the start, but Renee, not so much. Anthony is her son and they had and still have issues that need working out. So, I was not a big Renee fan when I started this book. However, I grew to understand her a lot more and why she had made some of her choices in life and why she hadn't shared with family what she was doing and why she was doing it. Believe me, this woman had a lot going on.
I am happy to say that my opinion of her totally changed by the end of the book.
As usual, I cannot wait to read further Securities International stories!!!
**I received an ARC of this book for free and am VOLUNTARILY leaving my own honest review **
Greg is now in Scotland working for Securities International. He is father to Maya and Derek and grandfather of five. His ex wife Sara was presumed dead in a fire but a detective contacts him regarding her murder. Renee (Betsy) returns to Talkeetna, Alaska after being gone for almost two years. The manager she left in charge of her bookstore has been embezzling money along with her husband. This intriguing read has sacrifices, danger, threats, death, embezzlement and so much more. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
