The Comfort of Lies by Randy Susan Meyers

Five years ago, Tia fell into obsessive love with a man she could never have. Married, and the father of two boys, Nathan was unavailable in every way. When she became pregnant, he disappeared, and she gave up her baby for adoption.

Five years ago, Caroline, a dedicated pathologist, reluctantly adopted a baby to please her husband. She prayed her misgivings would disappear; instead, she's questioning whether she's cut out for the role of wife and mother.

Five years ago, Juliette considered her life ideal: she had a solid marriage, two beautiful young sons, and a thriving business. Then she discovered Nathan's affair. He promised he'd never stray again, and she trusted him.

But when Juliette intercepts a letter to her husband from Tia that contains pictures of a child with a deep resemblance to her husband, her world crumbles once more. How could Nathan deny his daughter? And if he's kept this a secret from her, what else is he hiding? Desperate for the truth, Juliette goes in search of the little girl.

And before long, the three women and Nathan are on a collision course with consequences that none of them could have predicted. Riveting and arresting, The Comfort of Lies explores the collateral damage of infidelity and the dark, private struggles many of us experience but rarely reveal.

When I started reading this book I wasn’t sure if I would like the characters and the situation he/she was going through. By the time I had finished the book I felt like I was a character in the story and that I personally knew each character. 

At first I was a little confused about what was going on in the story and I had to keep re-reading the summary on the back of the book to remember what the story was supposed to be about; after the first two chapters though,  I was really getting into the story and I was able to finish three-fourths of it in one night.

 I was a little sad to finish the story since I really felt like I was in this story. I think Ms. Meyers did a wonderful job in grabbing the reader’s attention early on in the story and being able to keep the readers interested until the end of the book. I wish there was another book that was a sequel to this book! I think any woman would appreciate reading this book. I give this book and the author an “A.”

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
