Second House From The Corner - Pub Day Review and Giveaway

Review by Marlene Engel
Stay at home mom Felicia seems to have the perfect life; an adoring husband, three great kids and the occasional acting gig.  But her life isn’t quite what it seems as a secret from her past threatens to surface.

While her husband spends many hours at the office, and more times than not coming home after the children are already in bed for the night, Felicia is left feeling stressed out.  Having to keep up with the daily demands of the home and children often makes her fantasize about escaping from it all.

When she receives a phone call from a man from her past, he holds the ability to bring Felicia’s house of cards tumbling to the ground.  As she goes from one bad decision to another, her husband reaches his breaking point and chooses to leave.  Felicia goes to great length to bury her past, but as the adage goes … everything done in the dark eventually comes to the light.

A compelling book from a new (to me) author.  Second House From The Corner will have you wondering what secrets may be hiding behind the closed doors of your neighbors.
