betrayal by fern michaels
Kate and her husband Alex always take his best friends kids while they are on a week long cruise. What happens next is one of the girls accuses him of
sexual misbehavior. Alex is brought to trial and is found guilty. How could this have happened-the kids loved visiting with them as they paid attention
to the girls more than the parents.
He is put in jail for years til another lawyer finds the lawyer was incompetent. He is to be set free on Monday and will be able to go home with her.
What happens next doens't make any sense but definitely changes her whole life.
She went undercover, just disappeared from the face of the world. She started tracking the girls and to figure out why it had all happened. She was like
a private eye as she did her investigations. She changed her hair color, style, clothes, everything.

The lawyer needs to locate her to give her an envelope that Alex had entrusted in him to give her if anything should happen to him. He's yet to locate her
and calls the ones who had brought charges up on Kate. The Winters: the girls are messed up, the father now drinks himself into oblivion cuz his best friend
is dead and he never believed his daughters accusations, he is broke. Mrs. Winters owns the real estate agency and Kate is attempting to buy a new house with
their agency. There is a lot of gossip in the office about them, the money they want from the civil suit, which they will never get.

Revenge is sweet as Kate watches what happens to Debbie. The Winters wil be feeling total downfall within a weeks time.
Kate calls her best friend who's continuing on with the breeding of Alex's dogs and they laugh about the downfall.
She confides in the lawyer and he's agreeable to help her after she gets the envelope.
She is able to confront the girl and her sister, her dad, her mother and her lawyer. She tells them what future the girl will have now and
there is not a thing anybody can do to stop it. ( )

This is the first book I've read by Fern Micheals; it will definitely not be my last. Alex and Kate's marriage may have been a little too perfect, but it played really well into the twist later in the book. The story will suck you in and not let go, long after the last page.

Kate and Alex have a perfect marriage, but are childless. Don, Alex’s best friend and his wife Debbie have a strained marriage, and two daughters, Sara and Emily, who they leave with Kate and Alex whenever they have a cruise to go on, or want some time to themselves. Sara accuses Alex of molesting her, and while innocent he is sent to prison for twenty years. Kate seeks to get him a new trial, but when he is killed in prison, decides instead to seek revenge. A good “lazy day” book, entertaining. ( )

Imagine, just imagine that you and your husband who have not been blessed with children, are best friends with your husband's childhood friend, wife and 2 young girls. You meet a couple of times a year and the girls spend all of their school breaks and vacations with 'Auntie and Uncle' and the four of you love your time together. Then imagine that the unspeakable happens and one of the daughters accuses your husband of touching her inappropriately. The confusion, heartbreak, and legality of the issue are almost more than one can bear.
And then imagining it getting even worse. Your innocent husband is found guilty and sent to prison for twenty years. Imagine how you would react. What would you do? Can you think of anything to set things right and get your life back?
That is what Kate, the main character of this book attempts to do.
I recommend this book for an appropriate day when perhaps it is raining and you are in the doldrums and simply need an interesting but non-challenging book to read. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars. ( )

This was my first Fern Michaels book but it definitely will not be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed this one as I devoured it in one day. I thought it was well written and I could identify with the characters. I would recommend this one to friends as an enjoyable easy read. ( )
