"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Ms. Bell does a wonderful job of building suspense that will keep you turning pages. All in all, a very satisfying mystery. Highly recommended!
The amount of the betrayal in this book is insurmountable. This book wasn’t normal in the fact that it didn’t have just two main protagonists. It’s an ensemble cast of many characters that get equal amount of time on the pages.
Irene Turner is still grieving the loss of her 15 year old son when she finds out that the still born daughter she thought she had 28 years ago is not dead. This means she was betrayed not only by the Dr. who delivered her baby but also by her husband who she promptly leaves and head to Denver to meet the daughter she had been denied all these years.
Kinsey Masters had a childhood many would have loved to have. She loved soccer from an early age and grew up to become a world class athlete known to the world as Special K. She has since retired and become a coach. Kinsey knew she led a charmed life, perfect parents who always supported her and a great relationship with her sister Lindsay and her brother Jay. The only thing missing was she didn’t get to have her high school crush, Nate Paxton who broke her heart many years ago.
Nate Paxton is a Detective with the Denver Police department. He and his partner were undercover vise officers until there cover was blown. Nate loves his job and is very passionate about trying to make the streets safe for others. His only regret in life is Kinsey that he will never be good enough for her and has to be content with just being her friend.
When Irene comes into town with her evidence that Kinsey is her daughter and was stolen from her 28 years ago, Nate who is now assigned to Major Crimes is given her case by his boss. Nate is shocked and skeptical of Irene’s claims at first until bad things start happening to Irene and Kinsey’s mother goes on the run after being confronted. There were so many people deceived and betrayed and when murder and attempted murder get added to the plate you are shocked at how far someone is willing to go to keep all the secrets buried.
This was an engrossing suspense story that holds your attention from start to finish. I personally didn’t want it to end. I look forward to reading many more books from this author.
It is a spelling binding story and one that I know you will enjoy. It's a tale of a foolish young woman, her devious fiance, a one night stand that leaves her pregnant, the one night stands vindictive wife, and a nefarious doctor and his daughter who profit from all the rest. When the doctor dies, his second wife reveals to a much older and wiser Irene the plot that literally changed her life and those of the characters within the story. I refuse to spoil this for you so:
My advise is to buy this and read and enjoy the wonderful story that the author has woven around the theme of betrayal.
Short chapters and a switch from inside one character to the next -- Nate, Irene or Kinsey -- was seamless. A real puzzle at the core as Nate's past as an undercover cop and Kinsey's abduction intersect. Nate and Sammy as buddy cops came alive. Also the romances of Nate and Kinsey as well as Irene and the LT were interwoven without being heavy handed. All the elements of a Thriller were a bonus.
