Picture this: a dinner party at their perfect home, the conversation and wine flowing. They appear to be in their element while entertaining. And Grace's friends are eager to reciprocate with lunch the following week. Grace wants to go, but knows she never will. Her friends call—so why doesn't Grace ever answer the phone? And how can she cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim?
And why are there bars on one of the bedroom windows?
The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?
So I got this from the library a few days ago. I loved the cover. I loved the title. I loved the blurb, it pulled me in. I picked it up Wednesday night to read a little before going to bed...big mistake. Big. Huge. (channeling Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman). When it was 3:30 I realized - you need to put the book down! This is a psychological thriller that makes you think ( I love those!)I finished it yesterday. It isn't a huge book but dang is it a page turner! From literally the first page you are sucked into Jack and Grace's story. You know something is off, but what? As I continued to read, the past was slowly explained to give you the answer as to why she was in the predicament she was currently in. Then it would flip to present day to how she was trying to plan how the hell to get out of this situation for herself and her sister.
Yes, I think portions of the story-line are predictable and done before but, Pairs puts her own flavor on the story-line. To me, there were major red flags for Grace to pay attention to. Why she didn't, I don't know...But I was so glad that Grace began to outsmart Jack to be able to find a way out. And, the fact that Jack made the vital mistake of saying Millie's room was red, her "her favorite color"....I'm really trying not to give any spoilers here...I will say, I loved how Grace's conversation went with Esther at the end of the book. Lastly, I was a bit proud of myself for figuring out a few things in the book before Grace did or before Millie told Grace.
On a serious note, I am glad that stories like this one are written because there are non-fiction/real life people in these situations and situations like this that are trying to cry out for help but are unable to because of whatever reason. Stories like this help us think outside of the box and possibly help us be more aware of out surroundings.
Now, I look forward to reading The Breakdown!
Fool Me Twice by Philippa Jane Keyworth
Publication Date: December 1, 2016
Madison Street Publishing
eBook & Paperback
Genre: Historical Romance
In the gaming hells of eighteenth century London, orphan Caro Worth is leading a double life. By day she plays a proper gentlewoman on the lookout for a wealthy husband. By night she plays the infamous Angelica, her fictional half-sister with a talent for cards and an ability to finance the life her respectable self has built. An introduction to a rich Marquis brings marriage and security within Caro’s grasp…until the arrival of the unpredictable and totally ineligible Mr. Tobias Felton.
Dismayed by Felton’s persistent appearances, shocking frankness, and enigmatic green eyes, Caro watches helplessly as he comes closer than anyone to guessing her secret, but when complete and utter ruin threatens, she finds that Felton’s suspicions just might become her salvation. As the walls she has built to protect herself crumble down around her, Caro learns that no matter how careful your plans, life and love have a habit of falling quite spectacularly out of control!
I love reading a book by a new-to-author and loving the book. Don't you? After reading this book, and others from new favorite for me authors, I scour the library and internet for other books by the author. Although, I am pretty sure we all do that, lol...
Anyway, this book...I have fallen in love with historical romances and this didn't disappoint. However, the author took this historical romance to a whole new level for me. She added mystery and suspense that I wasn't expecting from a typical historical romance I could tell from the blurb that I was going to enjoy the book but...I wasn't holding out to LOVE the book! The main character, Caro is living a double life. During the day she is this elegant and proper woman trying to find a suitable husband while at night, she's her "half-sister", Angelica who has all sort of tricks that benefit her financially to support her day role. But can she keep up with the double facade?Anybody who keeps up with a lie like that is bound to crack under pressure. I loved that there was a few twists I did not see coming and the ending quite surprised me!
Philippa Jane Keyworth, known to her friends as Pip, has been writing since she was twelve in every notebook she could find. Originally trained as a horse-riding instructor, Philippa went on to become a copywriter before beginning a degree in History. A born again Christian, Philippa lives in the south of England with her handsome husband.
Philippa has always written stories and believes that, since it is one of her loves and passions, she always will. In her early writing career, she dabbled in a variety of genres, but it was the encouragement of a friend to watch a film adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice that began her love affair with the British Regency. Since then, she has watched every Regency film and TV series she could get her hands on and become well acquainted with Georgette Heyer’s novels which gave her the inspiration to write her own.
Both as a reader and a writer, Philippa believes it is important to escape into a world you yourself would want to live in. This is why she writes stories that will draw you into the characters’ joys and heartaches in a world apart from our own. Her debut novel, The Widow's Redeemer (Madison Street Publishing, 2012), is a traditional Regency romance bringing to life the romance between a young widow with an indomitable spirit and a wealthy viscount with an unsavory reputation. The novel has been received well by readers and reviewers who have praised the heartfelt story and admirable characters. Her second novel, The Unexpected Earl (Madison Street Publishing, 2014), explores another romance in the Regency era when an impetuous young woman has her life turned upside down by the reappearance of the earl who jilted her six years ago. Her third novel a Georgian romance will come out at the end of 2016.

Some things have to fall apart before they can be put back together.
The Walshes #7
Releasing May 23, 2017
Two lonely hearts.
Just once, she'd like
to be someone's first choice.
and spunky, but she's left picking up the pieces from her ex's lies and
manipulations, and daydreaming about taking a scalpel to his scrotum.
Flying under the radar
is what he does best.
He's laid-back and
loyal, but he wants the most off-limits woman in his world, and nothing will
ever make that a reality.
An arrangement of
Two months, four
Five, if things go
Five at the most.
But possibly six.
Definitely no more
than six dates.
Only the appearance of
a romantic relationship is required, and they expect nothing more from their
time together. There will be none of those
One wild weekend.
After waking up in bed
together—very naked and even more hungover—the terms and conditions of their
arrangement no longer apply. Now they're faced with something riskier than
exposing their fake relationship:
letting go of the past and zipping up the future.
Some things have to
fall apart before they can be put back together.
Kate Canterbary doesn't have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean--Pacific or Atlantic--is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since. Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn't writing sexy architects, she's scheduling her days around the region's best food trucks.
