Fern Michaels ~~ 4 1/2 and 5 Star Reviews
Life was almost perfect for Alex Rocket and his wife, Kate. They loved each other passionately, but they remained childless. Accepting their fate, they poured out their love to the children of Alex's best friend. Don and Debbie were only too glad to make the drive from their home in Florida to drop off their two girls, Sara and Emily, at the Rocket's North Carolina home. Emily, age 15, was easy to have around, but Sara, age 12, was spoiled and knew how to manipulate any situation to get her own way.
It was after one of these visits that Alex was accused of the unthinkable. Sara had supposedly told her parents that Alex had been abusing her for years. Before he knows it, he's behind bars. An incident at the jail forces Kate to take matters into her own hands. By this time, the girls are grown and Kate has an idea of how to exact her revenge on Sara and her parents. With a little help from a handsome lawyer, Kate once again finds her zest for life.
This is one of the best Fern Michaels books I have read. Your jaw will literally drop when you hear the testimony of Sara. Great characters, suspenseful plot and satisfying ending!
