READ THE SCREAM BEHIND HER SMILE NOW:

 

One lie is enough to question all truths.

As I lie here in my front hallway, in the place where it all began, I wonder what would have happened if I’d never opened the door that afternoon?

And now I’m lying here, blood pooling beneath my body, deep crimson smears on cold white tiles, remembering every sordid moment in vivid detail.

There’s a shadow standing over me.

“I want you to die here, slowly and alone.” Her voice is cold, emotionless. “And I want you to use the time to think about what you did. And when you take your last breath, I want you to realize it’s all your fault. All of it!”

I drift in and out of consciousness and wonder if I had my chance to do it over again, if I had the choice, would I choose not to open the door that day?

Even after everything, I know that I would.

I’d go through it all again, and then some, if it meant the chance to be with Zach just one more time…

“WOW! Just when I was beyond tired of cookie cutter romances with the same old tropes, this captivating story took hold and pulled me out of the book doldrums from the very first page. Believe me, I could NOT put this book down! I’ve seldom read a romantic thriller that surpasses this gripping tale of grief, deceit and steadily encroaching danger, wrapped in a passionate romance between two broken people”

“… Don’t miss this compelling story of love’s power to heal . . . to survive . . . to flourish despite overwhelming odds. With memorable settings in Perth, Australia, where the Swan River meets the southwest coast, this beautifully written novel richly deserves five breathtaking stars!

“The powerful hero of the hour is portrayed as a bad boy, brim full of raw sexuality, but this is tempered with a strong sense of honor. The Scream Behind Her Smile is a great contemporary psychological thriller with a solid plot line which had me reading late into the night. I thoroughly enjoyed every word.” –5 Stars, Readers Favorite – Silver Medal WINNER
