Jacqueline Simon Gunn - Circle of Betrayal

Sold out.

Signed First Edition

Forensic psychology student Kadee Carlisle never believed in love at first sight. Beautiful and bold, with a flair for neurotic intellectualizing and internal banter, she thought she was destined to spend her life alone. A cynic at heart, her belief: "Romantic love is a delusion." One morning, in line at a coffee shop, she meets tall, handsome, elusive Noah Donovan. The moment changes everything.

A relationship burgeons. Taken in by Noah's allure, his masterful listening, his attentiveness, Kadee lets her guard down and is swept away by their romance. But some subtle indications suggest that Noah is hiding something. Torn between her love for him and her growing sense that he isn't being honest, Kadee finds herself in the throes of obsession, unraveling rapidly. She thinks of killing him. But does she?
Five women, one murder, a web of secrets, lies and betrayals, a quest for answers, a search for the truth, the intertwining of love and hate, and the larger looming question: What leads someone to commit murder?
