Book One : A Secret in Salem
on May 16, 2011
In her debut novel, "A Secret in Salem," Sheri Anderson roars back to life with her incredible story telling and love for romance. Any fan of the long running soap opera, "Days of Our Lives," will enjoy this quick paced and exciting story. If you're a new fan of the show, this is a great place to begin your journey into the lives of many of Salem's finest residents.
Longtime fans of the show will be thrilled to see many of their favorites brought back to life in this new dramatic and exciting adventure. The opening of the book brings us to the lavish lands of the rich and famous in Monte Carlo, where we are met by Shawn Brady and Isabella Black, who have been sailing around the world with their young daughter, Claire. Elsewhere, John Black and Marlena Evans make an appearance in their new home in Switzerland. The struggle continues for John and Marlena as John works to regain the use of his legs after having been paralyzed for more than two years. Also on hand are Jack and Jennifer Deveraux, who are running "The Spectator," an online publication, with their young and up and coming journalist daughter, Abby and her best friend, Chelsea Brady.
Anderson introduces us to several key characters throughout the novel. The Gaines family is made up of the influential business mogul, Richard and fashion diva, Olivia, and their children Charlotte (aka, Charley), Jackson, and Chase. As the readers get to know these new characters, there is a great deal of mystery and suspense surrounding them. Through the personal turmoil and tragedy of the Gaines family, there is one incredible secret to be told that will change all of their lives forever.
Sheri is off to a great start in her "Salem's Secrets, Scandals, and Lies" series. I look forward to seeing where she takes everyone next.
