Author Cecilia Lyra is simply brilliant. Omg!! I couldn’t believe some of the secrets that came from Dewar Family, the owner of the all American company, Alma Boots.
The author tickled my gossipy senses as she made me a voyeur to the inner happenings of this family. The prim and propah matriarch, Tish, and husband, Charlie, along with two sons Bobby, the CEO of the company, and Nick and their spouses, Gina and Alice, made up this family.
The queen reigned over the town of Alma and the two daughter-in-laws towed to her commands. Most times. But there was an interloper, Eva, who claimed to have an affair with Bobby, that he denied vehemently. Who was lying?
The drama this family brought proved to be the perfect entertainment in lieu of a television. I enjoyed the scenes that unfurled in front of me like the episodes of a series. Some parts did seem slow, but the ending more than made up for it.
It is always fun when the author makes her characters squirm when hard truths hit them. Cecilia did the same here. I loved how the red herrings were thrown quick and fast right up to the end. The characters had some wicked zingers, one was more shocking than the rest. Go Dewars!! They sure had some evil moves.
This was a fast read over the afternoon where the author hit all the right notes with me in most of the book. Complete fun. Can I say it reminded me of Dallas? Anyone remember that?

Family always comes first.
Alma, New York is the perfect town, right down to the coordinated shopfront decorations on Main Street, and Gina Dewar is the perfect wife, mother, daughter-in-law. She understands the responsibility that comes with marrying into America’s golden family, and she tries not to burden her husband Bobby with drama from her own small-town past.
But a summer house in the Hamptons doesn’t always buy happiness, and the Dewars aren’t quite as apple pie as they seem. When Bobby is publicly accused of having an affair cracks start to appear in the Dewar clan, and when he denies any knowledge, Gina faces an impossible dilemma. Should she stand by her husband, or listen to her sister-in-law, telling her that there is more to this story?
As the town explodes with speculation, Gina tries to keep the gossips out of her marriage. After all, no one knows better than her that secrets should stay in the family. But then she hears the rumor that Bobby’s supposed mistress is pregnant and she is shaken to the core. With the future of her family so uncertain, Gina is about to find out what she’s willing to do to protect those she loves…
