Read full description of the books Secret Sins:I posted this review on Amazon first.
I strongly suggest you not read this book if infidelities in a "romance-mystery" novels bother you ( I wasn't aware of this until I got the book). If you're unable to fully appreciate a great story for this reason, as I am, then I suggest you pass on this.
However, because this author is truly talented, I feel she deserves 4 stars regardless of the irritating plot device, and this coming from someone who read this book being mostly annoyed.
This is a love story about a divorced couple, who come together after 3 years apart to find the heroines true identity. This is the mystery part of the story, the best part of the book.... who really is Jessica, and who were her real parents and how/why did she end up in the car that killed the couple who were in the car with her....
And the love story: They were married for 2 years, and within those 2 years, the heroine supported them while the hero dreamed of being an actor, lost auditions, spent the rent money SHE made so he could buy a plane tickets behind her back so he could fly to LA to audition...In a word, he was a failure, incompetent jerk, who was unfaithful, which all led to the heroine divorcing him. Heroine was Ms Perfect, emotions always hidden... this made the hero feel more of a failure...
Once a cheater always a cheater, and cheaters who justify their behaviors and tries to spread their mistakes and bad judgments are the worst kinds. A woman who takes back a cheater, is setting herself up for more pain. I know in the real world things aren't this black and white but do I want to sit around reading about this in a romance novel? No. And if the author tries to use this device in a romance novel, I wish they would at least make the hero's grovel some. In this book, the reasoning was mind boggling...the heroine forgiving him, just like that....then jumping into the sack...just like that...then HEA...just like that was too pact...
All in all, the book was good, the mystery was complex, and beautifully written. I just wish the book had a different heroine/hero. Heroine with a backbone, a hero who truly was one...I think I would've given this book 5 stars.
