False Pretenses ~ Review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
False Pretenses
David C. Cook (March 1, 2011)
Kathy Herman


Suspense novelist Kathy Herman is very much at home in the Christian book industry, having worked five years on staff at the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and eleven years at Better Books Christian Center in Tyler, Texas, as product buyer/manager for the children’s department, and eventually as director of human resources.

She has conducted numerous educational seminars on children’s books at CBA Conventions in the U.S. and Canada, served a preliminary judge for the Gold Medallion Book Awards of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association , and worked as an independent product/marketing consultant to the CBA market.

Since her first novel, Tested by Fire, debuted in 2001 as a CBA national bestseller, she's added sixteen more titles to her credit, including four bestsellers: All Things Hidden, The Real Enemy, The Last Word, and The Right Call.

Kathy's husband Paul is her manager and most ardent supporter, and the former manager of the LifeWay Christian Store in Tyler, Texas. They have three grown children, five almost-perfect grandchildren, a cat named Samantha. They enjoy cruising, deep sea fishing, and birdwatching—sometimes incorporating these hobbies into one big adventure.


Zoe Broussard loves the life she and her husband Pierce have built in her beloved Louisiana hometown. She owns a thriving Cajun eatery in South Louisiana and is married to the love of her life.

But it’s about to become hell. One day, out of the blue, she receives a series of anonymous notes that sends her life into a tail spin. Five simple words, “I know what you did.” Zoe has a secret so terrible it could leave the business in shambles and tear her marriage apart. Unbeknownst to anyone, even Zoe’s husband, Pierce, she has a past—a past she had covered so well she never thought she would have to confront. How could anyone know what she did? Can she find the courage to face her past?

My Review:

What an awesome story this is! I feel like I am starting to be a broken record by saying "I have found yet another amazing author!!" But it is soo true! This is the first book by Kathy Herman for me and WOW! I truly can't believe I haven't read anything of hers prior to this one! That is going to change FOR SURE!!

They mystery and suspense in False Pretenses will keep you turning pages well into the night! Will Zoe be honest about her past and will her husband find it in his heart to forgive her for deceiving him all these years? Who is watching her and sending her notes telling her specifically "I know what you did!" She is desperate to find who is doing this and why!!

Vanessa and Ethan hope to open a B&B in Langley Manor. The have plans to renovate and it's going to take some time but they are so excited. Their son, Carter begins to tell them about the Candy Man that he has seen in the house. How on earth could he see someone living in the house? As they seek for answers to this mystery, more and more questions arise. A murder takes place and sets the whole community into panic! IS it the CandyMan??

To find out you need to pick this one up for yourself!!

I loved False Pretenses! Definitely a 5♥'s book and I look forward to the next one in the series :)
