Title: The Truth About US
Author: Dalene Flannigan
Review: This book surprised me, I guess I didn’t know what to expect and WOW…BANG…the author nailed a topic that is near and dear to everyone’s heart…..Secrets we keep. What secrets do you keep from those you love and those who tell you everything? Well this one is big and it has the power to destroy lives and those you love…would you tell someone then? What will it cost you if you do? You may never know until you tell that secret.
This is fasted paced and well written, I kept turning the pages until the end. I’ve known people like the characters in this book and I think the author really hit the nail on the head with a few of them. Friendship is one thing, love is another and crazy is a completely different topic altogether. Put those three all in the mix and things happen. Good, bad or indifferent….things happen.
I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more from this author. By the way I was surprised this was self-published...it read like a well edited, professionally published work.
