My thoughts:

I LOVED this novel!

Been saying that a lot lately but hey, I've been reading some really great suspense!! :) I'm a big fan of Kathy's and I love that she's next door in the state of Texas! She's a sweet woman with an instinct for intrigue, and her books never fail to twist and turn and wow the reader. Kathy writes some of the most relatable, "feel like you're there" suspense stories that I've ever read.

FALSE PRETENSES is the first in a new series, and I loved how one of the characters picked up from her last series set in Sophie Trace. When I realized the Vanessa is this series was the same from the series before, I emailed Kathy on facebook all giddy like a little girl. :) I love when characters overlap!

The setting in this novel also brings a fresh element to the world of suspense. This charming fictional town is like a mini New Orleans, with all the same Cajun flavor and history. As a Southern girl, I'm all in! :)

Suspense novelist Kathy Herman is very much at home in the Christian book industry, having worked five years on staff at the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and eleven years at Better Books Christian Center in Tyler, Texas, as product buyer/manager for the children’s department, and eventually as director of human resources. She has conducted numerous educational seminars on children’s books at CBA Conventions in the U.S. and Canada, served a preliminary judge for the Gold Medallion Book Awards of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association , and worked as an independent product/marketing consultant to the CBA market. Since her first novel, Tested by Fire, debuted in 2001 as a CBA national bestseller, she's added sixteen more titles to her credit, including four bestsellers: All Things Hidden, The Real Enemy, The Last Word, and The Right Call. Kathy's husband Paul is her manager and most ardent supporter, and the former manager of the LifeWay Christian Store in Tyler, Texas. They have three grown children, five almost-perfect grandchildren, a cat named Samantha. They enjoy cruising, deep sea fishing, and birdwatching—sometimes incorporating these hobbies into one big adventure.


Zoe Broussard loves the life she and her husband Pierce have built in her beloved Louisiana hometown. She owns a thriving Cajun eatery in South Louisiana and is married to the love of her life. But it’s about to become hell. One day, out of the blue, she receives a series of anonymous notes that sends her life into a tail spin. Five simple words, “I know what you did.” Zoe has a secret so terrible it could leave the business in shambles and tear her marriage apart. Unbeknownst to anyone, even Zoe’s husband, Pierce, she has a past—a past she had covered so well she never thought she would have to confront. How could anyone know what she did? Can she find the courage to face her past?
