It’s a secret Emma plans to carry to the grave until Julian Cole moves in next door and opens Emma’s mind and heart to the possibility of love after betrayal. As the reporter and music executive grow closer in the music-filled city of New Orleans, Emma must risk everything to protect her newfound happiness from the man threatening to destroy her. As Emma embarks on a dangerous journey to bring her ex to justice, she soon learns the sins and secrets surrounding her are far more wicked than she ever could've imagined. Will Emma overcome her trauma and have her second chance at love? Or, will the unspeakable destroy her and everyone she holds dear?
"The Truth About Unspeakable Things is a powerful and impressive debut by Emily A. Myers. I received an advanced copy of the book and raced through this emotionally gripping story of Emma Marshall's struggle to overcome a horrific betrayal by the fiancé who supposed to love, honor, and cherish her. The sultry New Orleans setting comes to life on the page, the characters are memorable, and Myers uses a deft touch in portraying sensitive subject matter. Looking forward to more by this author!"
