Book Description

Toxic Lies (Part One)

(A 9624-Word Short Story from the Girlfriend Tales Series) -- Buy individual short stories or the whole collection--The Girlfriend Tales Series (Volume 1).

Part One--Jealous of her sister Maggie and wanting everything she has, including her men, Ellyn hatches a plan with Maggie’s ex-husband to help him win her back but not without consequences. Ellyn plans a Valentine’s Day celebration for Maggie and her fiance Jameson, supposedly as a kind gesture of forgiveness.

In the small southern town where they live, Ellyn has created problems for them in the past as she has had a crush on Jameson since high school, some twenty or more years ago. Jameson has never had an interest in Ellyn, having always liked her sister Maggie. Although Maggie married Chuck, her high school sweetheart, it ended in divorce, mainly because of Chuck’s abusive nature throughout the marriage. Jameson and Maggie reconnected years later and plan to marry, and this is the reason, supposedly, Ellyn has planned the celebration.

Ellyn has ulterior motives as she plans to get Chuck and Maggie back together so that she can be with Jameson. The flaw in her plan, however, is that Chuck is a ticking time bomb with a temper that is truly unpredictable, which has dior consequences for all family members involved.

4.0 out of 5 stars great series March 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
although i don't usually read this type of book i was grabbed and pulled into the story from the first page. i found myself intrigued and fasinated by the story and the characters were a joy to get to know and watch them grow into their own. At first i did not like the heroine and then i found my self rooting for her on the as i watched her change and grow.. it was a truley wonderful book.

it was very easy to become emotionally connected to each of the character(s) and to empathize with them and what they were going through.i was a joy to watch them grow and change and become the people they wanted to be. if you love a book that makes you feel laughter,sadness, angry and all of the other emtions it is that we feel as people then this is the book for you.

i find myself hoping to hear more about these characters in a future book as well as some of the secondary characters that need their story told.

if this is the type of book that you enjoy you shouldn't miss this one and if you are not into this kind of book you should give this one a try and perhaps it will change your mind the same as it did mine.

i look forward to reading the rest of the series very soon now.
