This book lived up to the back cover copy
My favorite sentences from the back cover copy are
“Plagued with misgivings, BJ questions whether love can be found in a town filled with lies and deception. And can she forgive someone even when they are asking from the grave?”
Serenity’s Deception tells of BJ’s opportunities to find love in spite of the deception and forgiveness for the past.
