False Pretenses by Kathy Herman - REVIEWED

About the Book: (from the publisher)
Zoe Broussard loves the life she and her husband Pierce have built in her beloved Louisiana hometown-especially their popular brasserie Zoe B's, to which folks drive all the way from Lafayette for lunch or dinner. It seems like heaven. But it's about to become hell. A series of anonymous notes is making her life a misery-because Zoe has a secret so terrible it could leave the business in shambles and tear her marriage apart. Can she find the courage to face her past? The first in a new series from Kathy Herman, False Pretenses is a gripping suspense novel that leaves a lasting impression about honesty and accountability. My Thoughts: Mysterious strangers, mistaken identities, hidden secrets from the past and senseless murder are all a part of Kathy Herman's latest story False Pretenses. This is the first of the Secrets of the Bayou series, and readers will be thrilled by the intensity of this new beginning. the cast of characters give a real "down home" feel to the story, and everyone will be able to relate to their emotional trials and spritual struggles. Herman makes a few references to her Sophie Trace series within the story, but readers will have no problem following the story-line even though they haven't read any of her previous stories. Zoe Broussard is at the center of the storm of events in this installment, and the choices she selfishly made ten years ago have led she and her husband into deadly circumstances. Will her marriage survive the web of lies that have come to light? Will her friends lives and those she loves most be spared? Most importantly, will Zoe and her husband recobnize God as the One who orchestates every circumstance? False Pretences is aan outstanding beginning to an exciting new suspense series by author Kathy Herman. I am pleased to recommend this story to you, and even more pleased to let you know that God's grace is suficient for ALL of us characters - real and fictional!! :) About the Author: Best-selling suspense novelist Kathy Herman worked for the Christian Booksellers Association in Colorado Springs, then married a retailer and moved to Texas, where she managed the children's department in the family's Christian bookstore.
