Secrets can be deadly...
If you were to pass me on the street, you probably wouldn't even look twice. I'm that normal. I'm just like you, only wealthier. I have it all. The kids, the family, the dog, a house on the hill. Hell--I'm so cliché, I even have a white picket fence. I guess you could say that I've dotted my I's and crossed my T's. But what I also have--what no one sees in yoga, or at Nieman Marcus, or during the dreadful Ladies Who Lunch charity events I attend (because only God knows why), and perhaps most importantly, in the school pick up line--are secrets.
Deep, dark, deadly secrets.
We all keep secrets, don't we? We all have thoughts in our heads, things we do, things about us that if people knew, they'd be shocked...right? Well, what if one day we just decided to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak.
What if we decided to let the whole world in on our dirty little secrets? And what if along the way, as we were spilling those secrets, we realized that things aren't always what they seem and with that knowledge, it changed the whole story?
In this book, I'm laying it all out there. The unraveling of my life. My coming undone. What one might've seen had they been paying attention.
What I've found in life is people often believe lies before they'll believe the truth. Well, here it is, in a nutshell. I'll let you decide which is which...

Truly a must read-seriously!
This book is definitely a must read! I have to admit, I was skeptical at first upon reading the overview but was worth it. It is for sure a page turner, keep you up just to see what happens next kind of book. I enjoyed the honesty and dark humor in it. Only 4 stars because the ending was too cliche for me. That was the only time when I was able to predict what would happen next. Otherwise, just give it a shot. The first chapter will have you hooked!!!

Life changing story
How a Chance meeting can change ones life forever in unimaginable ways. The author has presented a wonderfully well written story of a Chance encounter with a person fated to be the most important in a families life ultimately. It is not without conflict, I don’t want to hint at what and how much but they are able with much work and attention to put it all behind them with confident resolution. I very much enjoyed this story and recommend the book and the author!
