This story was full of drama and exciting moments, and I really enjoyed it! A lot of the book is in Paris, and I absolutely loved the location! The city descriptions were beautiful and truly brought the story to life for me!
What’s Not True is the sequel to What’s Not Said, and while I do feel like the author did a great job at recapping a bit for the reader, I do think it would be best to grab What’s Not Said and read it first. I think that it will make the second book an even more enjoyable read for you!
I was really invested in this story, and I didn’t want to put it down. I loved the self-discovery and the romance storylines. Taylor does a great job of connecting the reader to the characters, and making us invested in the story!
Where to Find This Book:
In this much-anticipated sequel to What’s Not Said, award-winning author Valerie Taylor continues the tale of Kassie O’Callaghan, whose chaotic quest to have it all sets up a battle royal with a woman who has other ideas.
With the court date set for her divorce and the future she’d planned with a younger man presumably kaput, Kassie O’Callaghan shifts attention to reviving her stalled marketing career. But that goal gets complicated when she unexpectedly rendezvous with her former lover in Paris. After a chance meeting with a colleague and a stroll along Pont Neuf, Kassie receives two compelling proposals. Can she possibly accept them both?
Kassie’s decision process screeches to a halt when her soon-to-be ex-husband has a heart attack, forcing her to fly home to Boston. There, she confronts his conniving and deceitful fiancée—a woman who wants not just a ring on her finger but everything that belongs to Kassie. In the ensuing battle to protect what’s legally and rightfully hers, Kassie discovers that sometimes it’s what’s not true that can set you free.
