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…
NAACP Image Award Nominee, Shelly Ellis gives her readers another well written literary gem, full of the things that we love to read about. Family secrets, scandals, lies and deception embedded in the Murdoch Family, keep the reader glued to the pages.
The Murdoch children, Evan, Terrence, and Paulette, are heirs to the Murdoch Conglomerate, inherit not only the financial and elite status, but also the dark side of being a Murdoch. A story ripe with revenge and turmoil takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and leaves you panting to see the outcome.
I recommend this book.
