Deceived

BOOK 1 COVER

A wealthy businessman. A murderous gold-digger.
When obsession leads to tragedy, will this family come together or fall apart?

Bruce von Essen’s life is perfect. The wealthy businessman runs a flourishing investment firm, has all the money and success that a man could want, and is married to the woman of his dreams. His beautiful wife Cecilia and two young daughters, Angelina and Blair, are the three most important people in his life: the three reasons he knows that his family’s real wealth lies not in the material things that they possess, but rather in the love they share.

But stunning Vonessen Inc. employee Victoria Adessi threatens the family’s peaceful existence. When the cold-hearted accountant’s secret desires turn into a deadly obsession, everything the von Essens know to be their reality changes forever. Getting through the third grade and dealing with puppy love were already challenging enough for Bruce’s musically-gifted girls, but when tragedy strikes, they will need to lean on their friends – and one another – in order to mend their broken hearts.

The first novel in the family’s saga, Deceived explores the scarring effects of upheaval, the healing power of friendship, and the destructive nature of deception. It is part drama, part tragedy, part romance, and part coming-of-age, focusing on the members of this family, their struggles in the face of unthinkable tragedy, the way that tragedy shapes their lives, and the people they come in contact with as they search for answers and closure.
