About the Book:
Monica and Sean clash at a parent-teacher conference when Monica accuses Sean of being too occupied with making money and chasing women to take a real interest in his son’s life. But Sean is no pushover. He knows how to hold his own and deal with Monica, but after the incident at school, he’s also come to realize that he can use Monica’s devotion to his advantage. He propositions her to move into his home to babysit five-year old Roman for the three months of summer break, offering her a substantial amount of money, hoping that she’ll accept. But is babysitting the only reason he’s so anxious to get her into his mansion?
Once again, another book that, while I did enjoy the story and it’s plot, it is not one that I would have purchases from a store shelf, just for the simple fact that I don’t normally choice this type of story line to read. That being said though, Tina Martin has mad author skills when it comes to creating an entertaining novel. She instantly grabs the reader’s attention with wit and well created characters that bring the story to life.
Tina’s heroine, Monica, is a finely created woman with typical flaws and self doubts, and she’s suffering heartache and secrets. Sean, well, let’s just say that he’s not your average millionare…..especially when he employs Monica as a live-in babysitter for his son. That’s when the fun and suspense really begin in the story, capturing me even more.
A great novel full of betrayal, heartache and redemption, Tina Martin’s Secrets on Lake Drive has it all: humor, romance, thrilling suspense and a movie quality plot line. Yep, I said it. Movie quality. This would make a good movie for Lifetime. This novel captures the reader and keeps them turning the pages til the end. A debut novel worthy of 4 stars and kudos to the author!
