Publisher's Summary

Secrets and scandals are a way of life for the Murdochs of Chesterton, Virginia. But the lies that bind them may end up tearing them apart.

With his drama-filled marriage behind him, Evan Murdoch has finally found happiness with his longtime friend turned fiancée, Leila Hawkins. But when his party boy brother, Terrence, is seriously injured in a car accident, a gossiping press puts the family back in the spotlight. Soon Terrence could face a lawsuit - and much worse if his vengeful half brother, Dante, has his way. Terrence's only bright spot is journalist C. J. Aston - but is she really on his side, or does she have another motive?

While Terrence struggles to recover from his injuries, Paulette, the little sister of the family, is struggling with a secret: She's pregnant and unsure whether the father is her blackmailing ex or her husband. Amid the turmoil, Evan does his best to stay above the fray, but a shocking revelation makes that impossible - he's a Murdoch, after all, and trouble seems to be their business.

Loved It

I really enjoyed this novel. I can't wait to hear what happens next. The Author did a good job at developing each character although at times I wanted to scream at Pauline.

Ended Too Soon

I enjoyed the book, however there are too many storylines left unfinished. I'll check to see if there's a second book.
