What I’m Reading: The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes

I just finished up the audio book The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain.

I’ve told you about many other Diane Chamberlain books that I’ve read The Silent Sister: A Novel, The Midwife’s Confession, Necessary Lies, and Breaking the Silence.  I’ve loved them all.  I’d say if I could only pick one I’d pick Necessary Lies probably for it’s historical aspect..but honestly there isn’t a bad one in the bunch.  I’ve already decided that slowly I am going to keep reading all of her novels.  She’s that good of an author…a little bit of mystery…flawed characters…moral dilemmas…all things that make good books.

Here’s what Amazon has to say, “In 1977, pregnant Genevieve Russell disappeared. Twenty years later, her remains are discovered and Timothy Gleason is charged with murder. But there is no sign of the unborn child. CeeCee Wilkes knows how Genevieve Russell died, because she was there. And she also knows what happened to the missing infant, because two decades ago she made the devastating choice to raise the baby as her own. Now Timothy Gleason is facing the death penalty, and she has another choice to make. Tell the truth, and destroy her family. Or let an innocent man die in order to protect a lifetime of lies…”

I really liked the book..but as I said, I’ve liked them all.  Amazon readers say 4.6 stars.  I think I’ll go 4.8.  If you’re a reader and haven’t tried one of her books..it’s time to give them a try.
