False Pretenses-Secrets of The Roux Bayou Book 1 by Kathy Herman

I received this e-book from David C. Cook Publishers through NetGalley.com for no charge for my honest review of this book.

Book Description:

Zoe Broussard loves the life she and her husband Pierce have built in her beloved Louisiana hometown-especially their popular brasserie Zoe B's, to which folks drive all the way from Lafayette for lunch or dinner. It seems like heaven.

But it's about to become hell. A series of anonymous notes is making her life a misery-because Zoe has a secret so terrible it could leave the business in shambles and tear her marriage apart. Can she find the courage to face her past?

The first in a new series from Kathy Herman, False Pretenses is a gripping suspense novel that leaves a lasting impression about honesty and accountability.

Best-selling suspense novelist Kathy Herman has written more than sixteen novels since retiring from her family's Christian bookstore business. She and her husband, Paul, have three grown children and live in Tyler, Texas. False Pretenses is the first in the Secrets of Roux River Bayou series, set in Louisiana.



My Thoughts:

False Pretenses is the first book by Kathy Herman that I have had the pleasure of reading and I truly enjoyed it.  I am a fan of books that take place in the South especially one like this one that has such rich history.  False Pretenses kept me guessing until the end about Zoe and her circumstances. I really identified with the characters, they were real people and I could picture them and their circumstances. All the characters had strong faith in God and really helped one another to remember that faith and rely on it.  This story has suspense, drama, and romance.  The descriptions of this Louisiana town were vivid and I could see all of it from the descriptions Kathy Herman gave. This is a great story that I think most people will enjoy. This is the first book in a 3 book series. I look forward to reading the other books in this series.  I highly recommend this story to fans of Christian Fiction.
