The Dilemma by B.A. Paris

B.A. Paris is one of those automatic-buy authors for me. I still remember the day I went to the bookstore with a good friend of mine and discovered her and purchased two of her books right on the spot. You can imagine my excitement to get my hands on her latest novel!

Thank you St. Martin’s Press for my gifted copy in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: It’s Livia’s fortieth birthday and tonight she’s having a party, a party she’s been planning for a long time. The only person missing will be her daughter, Marnie. But Livia has a secret, a secret she’s been keeping from Adam, her husband, until the party is over. Because how can she tell him that although she loves Marnie, she’s glad their daughter won’t be there to celebrate with her?Adam is determined everything will be just right for Livia and the party is going to be perfect… until he learns something that will leave him facing an unbearable decision.

I’m addicted to B.A. Paris’ style of writing. It’s captivating and thrilling and makes you thirst for more. I do have to say that out of all her books, this is my least favorite. There wasn’t as much mystery and suspense to this story as some of her previous stories. That’s because we, as the reader, get more of a taste of the lies going on rather than finding out along with the characters in the end. I still really enjoyed the read, but a little off the beaten path from what I expected from this author. I still recommend reading it for sure!

3.5/5 Stars
