Publisher Comments:

“Sometimes a lie is the best thing.”

Francesca Valentine is a successful, beautiful, world-renowned violinist. But when her perfect life is shattered, she must confess to a history of carefully calculated deception.

Claudine Jenkins was a musical prodigy who clung to her one true love—a violin given to her by her aunt Hattie Mae. Claudine grew up protecting herself from the tauntings of her father and her twin brother by eating herself into obesity. Her mother was an alcoholic who was indifferent to her, at best. But all that would soon change.

Feared by most, yet adored for her exotic beauty, Hattie Mae Jones remained a mystery even to those who thought they knew her best. But when her dark past threatened to destroy her perfectly laid plans for the future, she became determined to have her way. Would she have gone as far as committing murder?

What happens when three generations of lies come to the surface? Power, deceit, greed, and lust collide—leaving you with sheer Bliss.

Synopsis:

A famous violinist with wealth, beauty, two successful children, and a loving fiancae, Francesca Valentine confronts emotional upheaval after the death of her longtime companion as she is faced with revealing dark secrets from the past.

Synopsis:

Three women--a talented violinist, an obese daughter, and an exotic beauty--vie for happiness and survival in this intertwined debut tale of dreams, illusions, and murder.
