Red Adept Publishing, LLC (December 3, 2019)
Contemporary Women’s Fiction/Women’s Romance
Jada Marlone’s life appears to be perfect on social media. She has a loving husband, a beautiful child, and a successful career. What she doesn’t post about is the disconnect she feels in her marriage, the difficulties of motherhood, and her strained relationship with her mother.
Resigned to never being truly happy, Jada runs into an ex-boyfriend. While trying to decide whether the coincidence is her second chance at happiness, Jada begins having dreams that feature her dead cousin Gina.
With Gina’s help, Jada starts to uncover the real reasons behind her life decisions. As Jada tries to figure out her future, uncontrollable events threaten her resolve. Will she be able to draw from all she learned from Gina, or will she risk making the same mistakes twice?
On social media, she was living the perfect life. In reality, she is struggling with just about everything in her life- marriage, motherhood, family, friends, and her job. She wasn’t happy, she wasn’t living for herself, and following her true path. Fern Ronay created a sharp witted, complex, unhappy main character who could be anyone we know. I was entertained by this character and her antics. An entertaining read.
