    Pick up this one!

    I received this book free from Net Galley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This is definitely my favourite Fern Michaels from the last number of years. While I have enjoyed the Sisterhood novels, I needed something a little different from her, and this one delivered!! Maddy lives in small town Florida in a crappy trailer with an absentee neglectful mother and a twin brother, who is just not a nice person. After a tragic prom night, Maddy flees town in her red Mustang and leaves the dirt of that small town behind but what happened that night is never far from her thoughts. She starts over in a new town, with a new name. She says nothing to anyone about what happened to her or who she is. Eventually she marries a widower with two little twin toddler boys. She believes this will give her the security and family that she has been longing for. Little does she know, she has exchanged one hellish existence for another. She goes through day by day as the trophy wife of a wealthy dentist; she lives in a nice house with his two boys, and the daughter Kristen she shares with her husband Tanner. She has beautiful clothes and shoes, has lovely parties, but the life that looks glamorous and enviable on the outside, isn't what it seems. When she gets a mysterious phone call threatening to reveal her past, she is forced to come to terms and face everything she has been hiding from. The only bright light in her life, her daughter Kristen, has gone to Europe for the summer, there is nothing holding her back now from dealing with the secrets she has been keeping. I read, cringing, as Maddy was abused over and over. It's so easy to sat back and judge and think about what she should do or say, but this book gave a very real account of how someone in those situations would react. As hard as some parts were to read, I devoured this book quickly; I was enthralled. Although a couple of Maddy/Molly's tirades were a little over the top, I relished the vengeance delivered, similar to the Sisterhood novels, but still so very delightful to read. I think we all have the desire for revenge at some point in our lives, when we see some sort of justice given, it makes us just a little satisfied. I highly recommend this novel; it's a quick read and worth every minute. Thank you Net galley for the opportunity to read this wonderful novel

    All about Karma

    I really liked this book. It's not really a mystery but it is about Karma and how what goes around comes around. The story was great and was extremely well written and the characters were written so that you really felt each characters true nature. I would definitely recommend this book.

    Rushed ending

    This book reads well and had a good storyline, but I thought that the last third of the book had a rushed ending. Without wanting to give the ending away, I expected more detail in the story towards the end and the lack of it let the book down in my opinion. Apart from that, a good read.

    No real secret

    The content and context are compelling but I felt the story rushed through some important moments to an underdeveloped conclusion.
