Check out the latest Shelf Addiction author feature! On today's podcast episode I'm interviewing author Janice Johnson. Janice shares with us her NaNoWriMo experience as well as her book Deception: Lies and Secrets.
What happens when two women who are first cousins, the off springs of two sets of identical twins (quaternary unions, and share the same DNA), plot to deceive a man when one of the women impersonate the other? They are so similar in appearance that they could, and have, passed for twins when they were younger. What develops when one of them, Camilla (the therapist), pretends to be Karmen to help her cousin out of a sticky situation? Although they look alike, their personalities are quite different. Karmen is self-absorbed and selfish, and Camilla is caring and considerate. Karmen has two rich men on the hook and is not willing to give up either. She convinces Camilla to take her place and meet up with Josh, a cardiac surgeon with a past he's hidden, while she takes off to Paris to enjoy the other man. Karmen and Josh agree to meet at his lodge in the remote Texas Hill Country. Josh, is unaware that a psychotic hillbilly has been tracking him for years, determined to exact revenge for what he believes Josh's surgery did to his wife. Their weekend is interrupted by this psychopath and his emotionally unstable son. Will they survive a violent, long harrowing night where lies, secrets and deceptions are revealed? The truth that is finally exposed is totally unexpected, and changes the lives of all involved.
