Lies are not good. They always come out. I loved the
post. Great thing to look for in a reader.

Looks like a really good read - interesting with some twists
(Jason Lawless 7:29am November 14)
This looks like it would be a really good book, I love books that keep you turning the pages of the book. Thank you for the chance!
(Margaret Yelton 11:15am November 14)
Most of what you're seeking applies to moi. As a
stepparent for over 30 years with my own sons (the second
batch), it's occasionally challenging, but extremely
rewarding too. Family is the center of most of our lives
& where we learn most of our relationship skills.
Families, secrets, and moral dilemmas; right up my alley.

Family secrets can keep readers engrossed in the novel.

It's never good to tell a lie because it always comes out
in the end.
(Linda May 2:12pm November 14)
No lies. Corrosive! But complex characters and family
problems resolved satisfactorily are just the ticket. Match!
(Kathleen Bylsma 4:18pm November 14)
This looks like a fun read with a letter opening up old
wounds and secrets better left undiscovered.

I am always for new authors to me to try. The write up on this book puts it
