Julie B Cosgrove ~Legitimate Lies

Julie B. Cosgrove makes a return visit with her new book, Legitimate Lies.

If you were as captivated as I was by Hush in the Storm, you won't want to miss Julie's latest novel.

My Review:   The recognition of the baby her husband had fathered by a young Hispanic teen gripped Jen Westlaw with a deeper pain than she could have imagined. The Florida thunderstorm that brewed overhead was only a foreshadowing of what Jen’s future was about to become.

Carefully hidden away, or so she thought, in the WITSEC program with only one true friend, Becky, Jen, now Sheila Williams, would find herself betrayed, hurt and wounded once again by the husband who had delivered her first betrayal and possibly even by the very one who saved her before, Tom.

But her heart told her Tom wasn’t behind any of this, and if she’d trust in God and forgive those who had wronged her, the Almighty would guide her path. Jen yearned to be with Tom but her faith, a deep secret, and her evil husband Robert wasn’t about to let that happen. Will they find a way?

From the first clap of thunder to the conclusion of the book, Julie B. Cosgrove holds the reader in the palm of her hand. Just when you think all might go well for the main character, another event far worse than the one before befalls her all delivered by the expertly crafted and well-accomplished Ms. Cosgrove. I would highly recommend this book as well as others she has written. If you’re looking for a nail biter that will hold your attention from beginning to end – this is it.
