"SECRETS & LIES" BY TRACY JAMES JONES 

This novel reads like you're watching a movie! I could picture the characters clearly in my head. Every motion they made as smoothly articulated as Tracy James Jones' writing style. What is likely even more amazing that the writers ability to bring characters to life so vividly is the way they are all involved in each others lives. 

This intricately woven tale keeps you guessing until the very end. Just when you think you have the entire connection figured out something else comes to light that makes you change your mind. I couldn't help but fall in love with all four main characters and going through all their trials and tribulations just kept me rooted to my seat for hours on end. 

Richly intricate plots, amazing storytelling and complete surprise is what awaits you in this book. I dare not give away too much detail, this story is far too good to destroy with spoilers, but if you don't enjoy Kenny, Camilla, Bren, and Ulanda as much as I did, I'll be surprised! Tracy, all I can say is , "Write More!"

If you enjoy an intricate story line that deals in human emotions, this book will hook you from the very beginning. Tracy James Jones creates some very interesting characters as he carefully constructs a plot that is much like real life, complicated.

This book is full of surprises. The very nature of each lie and secret as they are finally exposed is at once heartbreaking and hopeful. If desire is the compass that guides us to our destiny then each character in this story must do what we all must do, learn to live the life that they were born to live. That is the ultimate challenge for all of us! Prepare to be faced with the honest truth even it makes you uncomfortable.

So, this is a book I've been meaning to read for two years, ever since I met author Tracy James Jones at a local book event. I'll be honest, at first I thought it was going to be a romance set back in the Victorian era. That is a fine example of me judging a book by its cover, and part of the reason it took me so long to read it. I'm not as big on old-timey romance as I probably should be. I much prefer contemporary. Lo and behold… This story IS contemporary! Silly me!

I read this book in one day. It's a quick, fast-paced read, with a lot of dialogue, which I personally love. As a reader and a writer, I'm a big fan of dialogue. It helps me get to know the characters better. As promised, the characters in Ms. Jones' book all have their secrets… And the promise of revelation and reveal will keep you turning the pages until the very end. Ms. Jones has a distinct talent for writing in such a way that makes readers feel what her characters are feeling. Secrets and Lies is, in a nutshell, an emotional roller coaster. But one that is well worth the ride!

A very emotional page turner, Secrets & Lies will have you wondering which secret will be uncovered next, all the way until the end of the book. With twists and turns the reader won't see coming until it smacks you in the face and leaves you questioning the integrity of the character. There is four central characters and with plenty of drama and line pushing you won't want to put the book down until there is a conclusion to the drama!

The cast of characters is multi-racial and multi-cultural. The cast consists of Kennedy, or Kenny for short, Camilla, Ulanda and Bren. Kennedy is hiding many painful secrets and lies from both his past and his present. Camilla is the young, unsuspecting woman, who falls in love with Kenny. Ulanda is Camilla's best friend, who's secrets and lies are not revealed until the end. She might just have more to do with this thick plot then being just a friend. Bren is Kenny's true love, since high school, who besides being lost in a gender transition is also lost in a painful past.

Will all the lies and secrets be revealed before more people get hurt? Can someone who hides so many hurt's from the past, and has multiple skeletons in the closet, truly be happy? To find all the answers to these questions, and unravel the web of lies, Secrets & Lies by author Tracy James Jones is a must read. An emotional roller-coaster that will take you up, and down, on the ride of your life.

Secrets & Lies, by Tracy James Jones, is a multi-cultural romance that takes you on a complex journey of four characters whose lives are bound by deception. Strikingly handsome, Kennedy “Kenny” Jordan, is the son of a successful bank executive. Kenny is touted to be a rising star, but he has a secret that threatens to tarnish his family name. That secret is Bren Searcy. Bren is a woman in transition (literally from male to female) who accepts Kenny’s philandering ways because she’s not sure she can ever give Kenny what other women can. Camilla Vargas, a beautiful Latina, knew she was born to do big things, but her pockets didn’t match her ambition. In order to realize the life she envisions, she knows she must marry up. A chance meeting with Kenny is just the opportunity she needs to put her plan in motion. Camilla’s best friend, Ulanda Jefferson, is none too pleased with Camilla’s new interest, and wastes no time voicing her concerns. But Ulanda has a secret of her own. Her issue with Kenny has more to do with her than she is willing to let on. Can they all maintain their boundaries, or will the secrets and lies destroy them?

Jones weaves an intricate tale about confronting our past, releasing our secrets, and living our true lives. With southern charm and a refreshing maturity, the author manages to craft a beautiful romance, and in the process, tackle some controversial issues. Despite some editing flaws, I wholeheartedly bought Jones’ story and believe in her passion for the craft. I look forward to reading more from this talented author.
