She Lost Everything…

Kate and Alex Rocket are blessed with a wonderful marriage and a lovely home. Although Kate can’t have children, she and Alex look upon Sara and Emily, daughters of their good friends Don and Debbie Winter, as part of their family.

Except Hope…

With one phone call, everything changes. Sara accuses Alex of a terrible act, opening up a vicious rift between the couples. Kate watches helplessly as her innocent husband is convicted and sent to prison. But when even greater tragedy strikes, Kate’s grief turns to anger, and she discovers an inner strength and steel-edged resolve to clear her husband’s name—and ruin those who destroyed their life together. But Kate’s greatest challenge will be in avenging Alex without losing her chance at a new future—and a precious new love…

Betrayal Review (Friday, August 19, 2011)
Reviewer: Amanda Woodward

Fern Michaels is an author I’ve always respected. I enjoy her books and believe that every story that she has given us has been a gift. Her stories are touching and thoughtful. I was very excited to have a chance to read this book.
However, I had problems connecting with the characters. Their lack of empathy and judgmental attitudes made them hard to sympathize with. The characters spend a lot of time insulting each other and even the “good” people in the story seemed malicious. I felt the storyline was missing critical information, such as character development. The timeline seemed to jump forward and leave out too much of the story. I was very surprised that this was written by Fern Michaels.
Please don’t let this be a deterrent to reading Fern Michaels other books. She’s a great author and deserves her reputation.

I fell in love with Alex and Kate from the very beginning! They were the perfect couple and I would love to have that kind of love! Kate grows during the novel, and I enjoyed watching her emotions twists and turn! Sara. . . Oh I felt great hatred for that little girl, as well as for Debbie. It would have been nice to see how it would have ended if the cards were played different (sorry don’t want to spoil it).

Michaels, as always, has a great novel on her hands. From the time I picked it up, until the time I finished it at two in the morning, it was an fantastic read, like the rest of her novels! 4.5 stars for certain!

Best Book of the Year!!!!! (Saturday, July 30, 2011)
Reviewer: marianne

After only 3.5 hours and two bathroom breaks I read the best book of 2011. This book is so emotionally charged! The realism in how quickly a life can be shattered. As a voracious reader, I rarely find a book that I read so fast with my heart pumping so fast to find out what happens next. I felt like everything depicted was happening to me. This is an excellent must read, but be sure to have a few hours to devote to the book and the book only because it is too thrilling to stop.
