Review

Carol Ann Culbert Johnson
"On a scale from 1-10, I definitely give this book 10. Ms. Black is a talented writer, and I can't wait to read many more of her books like The Great Pretender and her next book, The Great Mastermind. If you like a book with romance, family obstacles and scandals, The Great Betrayal by Millenia Black is a must-read for you."


Amazon.com - Harriet Klausner
"Leslie is one of the best protagonists of the year...Fans of deep psychological character studies will want to read Millenia Black's strong tale."


Romance Readers Connection - Jeri Neal
Millenia Black is a mistress at neatly laying out each part of the story, like building an elaborate building that forms a fascinating whole. She clearly and succinctly draws verbal pictures of each character and their interrelationships with each other. It is masterful...A thought provoking, extremely well-written book, this one will haunt your thoughts long after you've finished the novel."


RT Book Reviews - Sheri Melnick
"Intensely intriguing and deeply riveting, Black's latest is a first-rate page-turner that will draw you in from the very beginning and never let go. This is women's fiction at its best, with a twist of psychological thriller and a touch of romance..." Top Pick!

"...looking Crockett-and-Tubbs cool..."

I love Millenia's style and this one was a roller coaster of emotions throughout the book. I loved the desperation of the characters. In this book, as opposed to The Great Pretender, the characters were likable. I wanted to help them. I wanted them to help themselves. They became so real to me. Twists and turns, I never knew what to expect next. Although I did have the betrayal figured out in the beginning, there were enough twists to have me doubting myself. Upon the realization I was correct though, it was still a horrible shock to the system. I liked The Great Pretender, but I REALLY liked The Great Betrayal.

With a one year old, I very rarely get much time to sit down and read. So, when I tell you that I read this book in ONE DAY, you know it was amazing! It was not only an interesting read, but fun.

Since I read The Great Pretender and devoured it with enjoyment, I'd been waiting for Millenia Black's second novel. I was thrilled when one was published!

As was her first book, this book was about family secrets, dynamics, relationships, struggles, drama, over-coming obstacles, growing. It's about love, loss, pain, loyalty, and betrayal. I won't give anything away about the story, other than to say that I think you'll be hooked after the first page, just as I was.

It's not often you find a great author, often I find myself reading authors just because I am used to picking up their latest book, or just because I want to try something new. Many times the read is satisfactory. Sometimes I hope that the writing or plots will get better. However, I have been learning that trying new genre's, authors, can really pay off. I hope that people will give Millenia Black a chance, and I hope to see her books get the attention in the media and such that I think they deserve!

Format: Paperback
Leslie Cavanaugh seems to have grabbed the brass ring of life. She has a handsome husband who loves her, a lovely daughter and enough money to splurge. Her life in beautiful Palm Beach ,Florida seems to be a dream come true.

Unfortunately, dreams can become nightmares and Leslie's past is about to come back to haunt her. We all have secrets and "skeletons in our closets". Leslie has kept her past under wraps, but now it looks like it all is coming to light and her present may be destroyed. As Leslie deals with her past, she also deals with today's traumas. Her husband, Luke, may be having an affair and her beloved daughter, Kathryn, seems to be involved in a very scary situation. Kathryn is in her early teens and has to deal with insecurities and finding love in a family that appears to be coming apart at the seams.

In this second stunning novel Ms. Black shows it is possible to make flawed characters fascinating. Leslie is less than likable, but she comes to life along with the other character through intense, emotional dialog and vibrant narrative. It is easy to judge these characters as having to live with choices made, but we never know how we would react to extreme situations. The book contains a reader's guide with discussion questions. The Great Betrayal would be an excellent choice for a book club with many juicy, thought provoking topics to discuss.

If you have not already read it, I highly recommend Ms. Black's debut novel, The Great Pretender. I look forward to a third book that this wonderful writer has in the works.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is Millenia's second book - and is a really good read. Leslie Cavanaugh is a successful business woman, married to a gorgeous man called Luke, and they have a daughter Kathryn. They have a wonderful life - but Leslie has a secret - and she has been deceiving her family, as well as herself. When the secret is discovered, the Cavanaugh's world comes apart. As the family learns to deal with the past - Luke and Kathryn start to cover up their own secrets. But only one will commit the ultimate great betrayal.

This book is very well written. It successfully evokes intense emotional pain and conveys to the reader how differently people all react to trauma. Each of the characters are very real and the four main characters each have their own misfortune to face - and some of the events that happen are quite shocking. Millenia has been able to bring all the threads together, travelling between the past and the present skilfully - to produce a can't put down until you're finished novel.

I have read both Millenia Black books and loved them. This one was very much written in a fashion similar to the styles of Jackie Collins and Sidney Sheldon.

You don't like the characters; however your compelled to read on. I think the time changes were approriate and I had figured out one scenario in the book; but never thought of how it would end.

I'm also enjoyed the reading guide and interview in the back of the book. I'm looking forward to her next book.

Format: Paperback
Life was perfect for Leslie Phillips until the day a freak accident killed her husband. She lived in a state of shock until after giving birth to his child, then ran away to begin a new life in Florida. She never returned for her baby, Grace; nor did she tell her new husband, Luke Cavanaugh about her past. Years pass, and suddenly, all she left behind catches up with Leslie. Grace learns the truth about who her mother is and wants to start a relationship. Leslie has to tell her new family the truth and face up to her mistakes. A storm of angst and other, less definable emotions rises up to envelop everyone around her. When grief, love, revenge, need, and hate are so tightly bound together, the consequences are guaranteed to be ugly. Leslie just has no idea how much so.

**** This is a very well written book, but very difficult to read. Many may see Leslie as unsympathetic, but if you have gone through a dark night of the soul, she's someone you can relate to. However, the fall out from her actions is something readers should be aware is very grim, to put it mildly. There are scenes of child molestation, which are not graphic, but convey the feeling without being too explicit. Nonetheless, it's a powerful, cautionary tale. ****
