A Version of the Truth

In the wilds of Topanga Canyon, Cassie Shaw is right at home - with the call of birds, the sound of wind in the trees, the harmony of a world without people. But everywhere else, life is a little harder for Cassie. Her mother believes in Bigfoot. Her wisecracking pet parrot is a drama queen. And at the age of 30, newly single and without a college degree, Cassie desperately needs a decent paycheck. Which is why, against all her principles, she lies on her résumé for an office job at an elite university.

Publisher's Summary

In the wilds of Topanga Canyon, Cassie Shaw is right at home - with the call of birds, the sound of wind in the trees, the harmony of a world without people.

But everywhere else, life is a little harder for Cassie. Her mother believes in Bigfoot. Her wisecracking pet parrot is a drama queen. And at the age of 30, newly single and without a college degree, Cassie desperately needs a decent paycheck. Which is why, against all her principles, she lies on her résumé for an office job at an elite university - and then finds herself employed in academia by two professors who are as rare as the birds she covets.

One of her new bosses is Professor William Conner, a sexy, handsome, cheerfully aristocratic expert in animal behavior. Soon, under Conner's charismatic tutelage, Cassie carefully begins her personal transformation while meeting the kind of people who don't flock to wildlife preserves - from impossibly brilliant academics to adorably spoiled college boys. But her future - and unlikely new career - is teetering on one unbearable untruth. And Cassie's masquerade is about to come undone...in a chain of events that will transform her life - and the lives of those around her - forever.

A novel for late bloomers of every exotic shade and stripe, A Version of the Truth is pure entertainment - at once hilarious and wry, lyrical and uplifting.
