What if, in an instant, everything about you changed?

Nick & Cathy. Cathy and Roxanne. Two best friends. One husband. An extraordinary twist of fate.

To their friends, Nick and Cathy Chance have the perfect marriage. High school sweethearts who've been together for ten years, they've weathered challenges and are as committed as they were when they first fell in love. Cathy trusts Nick, Nick's world revolves around his wife, and the future looks golden.

To everyone who knows them, Cathy Chance and Roxanne Ruiz have a perfect friendship. They connected in grade school and since then have been each other's confident and trusted advisor. Cathy loves the gorgeous Roxanne like a sister, Roxanne has fun–loving Cathy's back in every situation, though lately there's been tension between these two best friends...

And then, on a sunny summer morning, the unthinkable occurs, throwing into doubt the truth of what each of these people really know about themselves and one another.

Thanks for the lovely and generous review, Lynn Cunningham!I'm delighted you liked the bigger scope Women's Romantic fiction plot! You made my day. And my publisher's! Emelle Gamble

Reading a story is not a static thing, but can be a moving
experience with imagining the "what if's?" and then plugging
in your own conclusions. Many stories are not all neatly
wrapped in the end, but whet your appetite for more of the
same and offer a glimpse into a different way of life.

Great observation, Alyson Widen! Yes, many stories aren't all neatly wrapped up, and those are the ones I love the most. I mean, I don't want to be left hanging, but I do like to let my mind conclude what really happened, and how the characters continue. Thanks for posting! Emelle Gamble

This is just my opinion, but I feel that when an Author writes a book, they put their heart and soul into it. I find it a bit rude for a reader to second guess what the Author is trying to portray as her ending. If they have a different opinion as to how the ending should be, perhaps they should become an Author themselves, or mention their opinion to the Author at a meet and greet. I've always read books and taken them at face value. When I've finished, then I form my opinion of either loving or hating the book, for whatever reason, but I've never said that I would change an ending to suit my needs!

Reading is one of the greatest pleasure you can
have,so of course you put yourself into the story. It
ends the way you want it to.
Debby Creager 10:24pm November 10, 2013)

Peggy Roberson, thanks for posting! You bring up a great point...and I agree, I don't ever 'rewrite' an ending, but I must admit I like those old "Lady or the Tiger" kinds of endings occasionally, where the reader can make a case for two differing endings. I didn't think I did that with Secret Sister, but frankly I love that others have made a case for it having a bit darker ending that I intended. Again, many many thanks for posting!
Marsha Nuccio 2:11pm November 11, 2013)

Debby Creager...Yes, it does end the way you decide. Thanks for understanding this...I have been overwhelmed by the response people have had to Secret Sister...and frankly, many of them 'got' things I didn't even see about loyalty and love and secrets. Thank you for posting. If you get a chance to read Secret Sister, let me know what you think! - Emelle Gamble

You got me hooked with the last 2 paragraphs.
