Romance Suspense

Maya and Rebecca Ward are both accomplished physicians, but that's where the sisters' similarities end. As teenagers, they witnessed their parents' murder, but it was Rebecca who saved Maya from becoming another of the gunman's victims. The tragedy left Maya cautious and timid, settling for a sedate medical practice with her husband, Adam, while Rebecca became the risk taker.

After a devastating hurricane hits the coast of North Carolina, Rebecca and Adam urge Maya to join them in the relief effort. To please her husband, Maya finally agrees. She loses herself in the care and transport of victims, but when her helicopter crashes into raging floodwaters, there appear to be no survivors. Forced to accept Maya is gone, Rebecca and Adam turn to one another—first for comfort, then in passion—unaware that, miles from civilization, Maya is injured and trapped with strangers she's not certain she can trust. Away from the sister who has always been there to save her, now Maya must find the courage to save herself—unaware that the life she knew has changed forever.

Re: The Lies We Told

I read The Lies We Told, and was riveted to various stories revolving around Maya and Rebecca, and how the events of their youth fully shaped who they had become as adults.

As stated in the above review going through the teen years for Maya and Rebecca was not the typical carefree years that so many of us experience, but without their experiences would they have had the strong determination they showed to live the lives they did?

Ms. Chamberlain is in my opinion an author who doesn't get nearly the notice that she deserves. I have not read her entire backlist, but of the titles that I've thus far read I find myself on an emotional journey with great character growth throughout, and look forward to each new release eagerly. I also look forward to when I have more time on my hands then I know what to do with to delve into my TBR and catch up on her backlist.

Diane; I really liked the trailer and the music for whatever reason the speakers voice didn't hold my interest a stronger more varied pitch would have kept my interest more. I think that the book sounds fantastic and the trailer is a great hook. I can't wait to read it!
Darci Paice 12:49pm June 18, 2010)

This book sounds great. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
Ginger Hinson 2:50am June 18, 2010)

The trailer wants me to delve into the book so much! Really good job!
Joanne Reynolds 6:28am June 18, 2010)

sounds really good
Sagrario Vigil 10:28am June 18, 2010)

Wow! Deep and compelling. My curiosity is definitely sparked. Usual scenario at the start,want to here the ending as well. All in all nicely put together.I think you achieved your goal with this trailer.
Annette Mendez 10:31am June 18, 2010)

The trailers are nice, but I usually meet a book for the first time in a bookstore - or in a contest at Fresh Fiction :>) Seriously, I have yet to run out and buy a book because of seeing a trailer. I do enjoy seeing them after I have read the book, though.
Karin Tillotson 11:58am June 18, 2010)

That's one of the best trailers I've seen! I already have my "autographed" copy and my mom and I can't wait to read our copies!!
Kelli Jo Calvert 12:27pm June 18, 2010)

The book sounds quite interesting. I have to admit,I usually don't pay any attention to book trailers. I watched yours and it's nice.
G S Moch 12:34pm June 18, 2010)

I watch book trailers and this one is lovely. The music, visuals, and narration work well to set a mood and make me want to read the book.
Leni Kaye 1:00pm June 18, 2010)

The trailer likes very interesting. I like the narration because it sums up what the book is about.
Kai Wong 2:29pm June 18, 2010)

WOW I loved the trailer and the book sounds FAB
Vickie Hightower 2:50pm June 18, 2010)

There is so much more to being an author that in just putting down words!
Marjorie Carmony 3:16pm June 18, 2010)

Your book sounds fabulous and I would love to read it!
Gail Hurt 4:14pm June 18, 2010)

well i want to read it , thanks
Debbi Shaw 4:22pm June 18, 2010)

I like the background music. Overall, it's polished without being too overly done.
S Tieh 4:53pm June 18, 2010)

I don't like book trailers. I prefer to be completely surprised.
Cathie Veres 6:04pm June 18, 2010)

Evocative trailer makes you think of your own family secrets and who might tell and break the pact made long ago. I love the glimpse of the two girls peeking between their fingers, like no one can tell.
Alyson Widen 6:34pm June 18, 2010)

Sounds great. Looking forward to reading your book!
Cheryl Lynne 6:52pm June 18, 2010)

I always prefer excepts to trailers. I watched it and thought it was interesting, but not exciting.
Mary Preston 7:24pm June 18, 2010)

I don't usually bother with trailers but hey - for a contest to win a book by an author I've not read yet? Yeah...

Then to find the subject matter- have a similar situation in my family- that the things written in granite for the world to see have nothing to do with what's written in reality in the sand...
I watched several times- didn't find the pic of you gripping your thighs unless you mean on the cover photo but that's ok- Will do my best to read this even if I don't win...
bless you
Maribeth Curry 8:44pm June 18, 2010)

I don't watch book trailers I like to read the books and be surprised.
Brenda Rupp 9:47pm June 18, 2010)

Having dial-up service, I wasn't able to watch your trailer. That was a big disappointment!! Your vivid description of the making of it, has me hooked to want to read your book, though!! I can already picture the scenario in my minds' eye. With your background and experience, it has made you a very gifted writer, and it shows. Thank you for sharing your gift with us!!
Peggy Roberson 10:18pm June 18, 2010)

This sounds like a good story line.
Liked the video. You are right, movie
videos are much easier to put
together. The characters and story are
already there in pictures, you just
need to pick and choose what you
want. With your book video, you must
go through the casting process and
make the pictures that highlight your
story. Some videos miss the mark.
Yours is nicely done.
Good luck with this book. Your books
are popular at our library.
Patricia Barraclough 10:21pm June 18, 2010)

I think the trailer does a neat job of portraying the book. But I can understand why such a trailer is hard to build.
Gladys Paradowski 10:43pm June 18, 2010)

The trailer is truely awesome! :D Now I really can't to read it xD
Rose Valentino 9:22am June 19, 2010)

good vid and book sounds vg too
Debbi Shaw 12:23pm June 19, 2010)

Just recently I was thinking much along the lines that this book seems to go while telling a story about my father. I learned about it from my mother since my father never talked about it to us children. I suddenly thought that I might have been embellishing it too much. And what we think about others and even ourselves can be twisted or incomplete. I've often thought, "I could never do this or that," but if I'm faced with the situation? Who knows.

The trailer is moving very good.
Sigrun Schulz 2:41pm June 19, 2010)

Hello Diane, Wow, what a fantastic trailer because I grew up on a wheat farm in Kansas and this brings back great memories for me. Please enter me in this fantastic contest and please let me know when I am a winner too!
God bless you with success,
Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez 9:12pm June 19, 2010)

I've got to say this is the
first book trailer I've seen
that wasn't cheesy. I tend to
stay away from watching them
as they are so bad that I'm
afraid they may ruin the book
for me.
Lisa Richards 4:51pm June 20, 2010)

I'm with Lisa above. I don't watch book
trailers very often because they are just
too cheesy and they put too much "lust"
in them.
