ABOUT THE BOOK
But it’s about to become hell. One day, out of the blue, she receives a series of anonymous notes that sends her life into a tail spin. Five simple words, “I know what you did.” Zoe has a secret so terrible it could leave the business in shambles and tear her marriage apart. Unbeknownst to anyone, even Zoe’s husband, Pierce, she has a past—a past she had covered so well she never thought she would have to confront. How could anyone know what she did? Can she find the courage to face her past?
If you would like to read the first chapter of False Pretenses, go HERE.
This is a book that will make you think twice before you hide the truth. Sometimes hiding things seems like the best but as you read False Pretenses you will quickly realize how deeply you can dig yourself into a hole and how painful it can be when truths are revealed.
There is a fine line between secrets and lies and Zoe is thrown into a web as her deceit slaps her in the face, I enjoyed this story and it was a very good reminder about why not to lie! Not a quick read, this is one I took slowly, there is a lot going on here.
All in all a good read to save for one of those stormy spring/summer nights or days when you feel like holing up in the house! But beware of the danger lurking around the corner.
