Format: Paperback
It's been five long years since Tera Larou was murdered, Dominic Jones was convicted and Dawson Jones attempted suicide. Since then, Shaniece Turner has gone on with a carefree life, even finding love with Mark Anderton, the detective who was responsible for solving her cousin's untimely demise. Ready for her happy ending, Shaniece begins to unravel a bit when she learns that Dominic is now proclaiming his innocence. Refusing to allow anything to stand in the way of her nuptials, Shaniece is ready to dig, bury and escape the past at any and all cost.

Poor Dawson is riddled by guilt daily. And day by day she seems to sink a little further and further into a deep abyss. Terrance, her live-in boyfriend, is doing all he can to love her despite the secrecy. But Dawson's nightmares seem to be progressively getting worse. It's almost as if her subconscious is screaming from within. Courageously, Dawson pushes the envelope learning the truth about what happened five years ago. Armed with the truth, she's willing to go to hell and back in order to right the wrong that has been done to her and her father. However, it comes at an enormous price.

KEEPING SECRETS TELLING LIES, the sequel to WIVES AND GIRLFRIENDS, by Nishawnda Ellis is a great follow-up. The story is fear-provoking, challenging as well as appealing. I love how strong the women are and willing push to the very end to get what they want. I love Nishawnda's dramas and even with the editing woes, easily recommend to all.

I have to say this was a great book. I was on the edge of my seat just reading and reading. First time reading anything by this author and have to say she did a great job with this drama and suspend the whole way.

Dawson was a girl that always thought she was the one that killed her dad's girlfriend. Her dad took the fall for it to protect his daughter.

Years later Dawson started to get her memory back and then started to remember that Shaniece was the one that killed the girl Tera they was cousins. So Dawson set out to let Shaniece know she know and that she wants her to turn herself in. But, Shaniece so involved in marring the love of her life that she would do anything to keep her secrets from coming out.

Overall great book. :)

This book was on fire. The main characters were so realistic that i thought i knew these people. The book picks right were the first one left off, so there is no confusion. Just the way i like it. I don't give out story so you will have to read the book for your self. Trust me when i say that it was a page turner. And the characters where devious and sharp. Just when you think you got it figured out she throws another curve ball at you. Well done Ms. Ellis, Well Done.

Dawson Jones is haunted - haunted by the memory, or lack thereof, of killing her father's mistress five years ago. Wanting to protect his family, her father confessed to the crime and is doing the time. And then it hits Dawson. She remembers everything about the fateful night, including who the real murderer is. She'll stop at nothing to prove her father's innocence.

Shaniece Turner has worked hard to be in the position she's in - on the crux of marrying the man of her dreams. So what she murdered her cousin and framed someone else. She'd do it again (kill) if she had to and she just might have to when the case is reopened. Shaniece will stop at nothing to maintain her current lifestyle.

Two women with everything to gain and everything to lose.

Not quite the caliber of a sequel I was hoping for, "Keeping Secrets, Telling Lies" was a very quick and easy read. However, it seemed rushed with not a lot of effort. While I really enjoyed "Wives & Girlfriends," in comparison, this novel was just okay. It lacked the intensity, intrigue and suspense of the first. Still, I'd recommend it to readers who enjoyed the first book and want to see how things concluded.

On a side note, the editing was not that bad, but at this point I expect more from Urban Books.
