Secrets can scandalize . . .

In a lovely suburban town just north of New York City, the gossip mill runs more efficiently than the commuter-train line. And in every impeccably decorated house, they're talking about Lauren Walsh. They say that nothing could be worse than being abandoned by your husband for another woman. They're wrong . . .

Secrets can shock . . .

All Lauren wants is to protect her children from the pain of her messy divorce. But when their father goes missing, a case of mistaken identity puts all their lives in danger, and a stealthy predator lurks in the shadows, watching . . . waiting . . .

Secrets can kill . . .

Lauren is about to uncover an unfathomable truth—a truth this cold-blooded mastermind would never let her live to tell . . .

Why did I add Live to Tell to my bookshelf?

I decided to take a peek in my Amazon account when I was looking for a book to feature this week. I found a lot of books that I don’t even remember buying. This is one of them. I have had this book on my Kindle for over 10 years and haven’t even thought of reading it yet. Probably because I forgot that I had it. I did get it on sale for $0.99 so I don’t feel as bad about ignoring it for so long as I would have if I had paid full price. I have had some luck with this author in the past so I think that this one might be a good bet.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?

  1. Part of me wonders if you are still interested after 10 years. I am not familiar with the book or author, but it could work if you’re in a particular mood.

  2. Ha! I find books stashed away every time I clean up my digital files or scroll through my Kindle. I’ve seen that author get some great reviews so looks like a good one.

  3. I’ve only read a couple of books by this author but I’ve enjoyed them! I have a bunch of them on my shelf that are unread that I need to get to. I need to see if this is one I have!

  4. oh wow ….ten years is a long time!!! Its so easy to buy these books and then they just sit collecting digital dust haha and so much easier to forget about reading over physical books. Hope it works for you!!
