Ten months ago, Jay, her husband and love of her life, committed suicide. Since then, Colton, Alexis' seventeen-year-old son, has become more distant and although they live in the same house Colton and Alexis are like strangers. And now, Alexis has received the diagnosis of breast cancer. As a driven and successful astronaut scheduled to go on the next flight into space, Alexis realizes that this diagnosis means she will have to give up her lifelong dream. So begins the journey that will take the Finley family through the secrets that have kept them distant for so many years. Midway through the book, there is a wonderful twist that changes the course of the action and the lives of Alexis and Colton.
Family Secrets: Secrets and Second Chances Book 1 by Donna M. Zadunajsky is a look into the secrets of a family that, at least on the surface, always seemed so normal. There are wonderful supporting characters in the book: Sarah Ramsey, Alexis' doctor and friend, and Anna, a clerk in the hospital who becomes much more to Colton. Zadunajsky does a great job creating tension and developing a story that kept my interest from beginning to end. There are enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged as the family secrets unfold and the answers to the mysteries are revealed. Looking forward to Book 2 in the series!
