Summary

The day her mother passed away, Beulah was only given a name. That was it. No other explanation.

Portia Van Allan was not someone Beulah could believe her mother ever knew. Wealthy, self-absorbed, and other than the fact Portia was supplying special care for Beulah's sister, Portia was cruel.

The day Portia's son returns home for the summer, Beulah discovers that Portia isn't in charge. This isn't her home at all. Her late husband left her with nothing. It all belongs to their son, who doesn't seem to like his mother at all.

Jasper Van Allan doesn't know why his mother has hired a young, gorgeous blonde to take care of the house and almost lets her go before he finds out the truth.

Realizing there's more to Beulah than a stunning face, he keeps finding reasons to be near her all the time. It's all falling into place, it all begins to make sense...until the real lies, the dark secrets, and the skeletons come tumbling out of the Van Allan closet. Twisted truths that will send Beulah running...

Hmm Cliffhanger part 1

Beulah has been shoved into a situation she isn’t completely comfortable with but she puts her big girl panties on and does what needs to be done.

I love that she doesn’t feel sorry for herself she is grateful for what she has in life and even when life is kicking her she thinks of her sister first. She takes care of her sister Heidi who is the light of Beulah's life, she says to herself others have it worse off that she does. She just has to figure things out and make it work and that she does. No woe is me stuff.

Jaspers mother Portia, had me confused why did she help Beulah? Well, when you find out it opens up a can of worms. EEK
I am keeping my thoughts on Jasper ( is a bit of a charmer) and Stone (he acts like an a – s - s) to myself for now. I don't have a lot to say on them as of yet.

Beulah, I felt like she fell in love way too fast, Jasper does something nice for her and she fell in love it was weird. I didn’t feel the chemistry. Even Jasper's (new) feelings feel off.

It kind of reminds me of Blaire and Rush from Abbi’s other series but trying too hard. I don’t know.

It ends on a bit of a cliffy so I will keep going with book two.

The narration: I really enjoyed Samantha Summer’s performance her female voices were spot on and she had the sound of a young woman.
Now don’t get me wrong Kyle Munley’s voice is delicious but he sounds older than I would have thought Jasper was. It threw me off a little. You do get used to it. So not bad just a little odd.

Couldn't Finish It

Started out promising. But the main female character became annoying. Not my favorite book of Abbi Glines. I rolled my eyes one too many times to where I couldn't make myself listen anymore.

Similar storyline but I still love Abbi Glines...

I'm assuming that there will be more to the story in the next 2 books and the Sweet Little Lies that Portia kept will be more devious and be worse.
