I NEEDED to know how it all unfolded!


on November 8, 2015
Great read. The author used very thoughtful details and developed an intriguing story line. I started this novel during travel, and basically read the second half in one sitting because I NEEDED to know how it all unfolded! Definitely recommended.


A terrific book that reveals the complexity of motives of mankind!

From the first page till the end I have been continuously surprised by the twists and turns the book takes as it weaves its way through the life of the main character – Virginia. It turns out that Virginia is not entirely free of flaws herself, making her a complex character with dreams and challenges of her own. We get insights into the behind the scenes of the charity scene, revealing the dark under belly of those who purportedly do good while channeling their dark side to other purposes.

Most of all, the main character’s sure footedness at crucial moments in her life bear witness to an unerring instinct for values and morals that form the backbone of the books vision.

This book was awesome! I truly enjoyed reading it

This book was awesome! I truly enjoyed reading it. The story was nicely told and it certainly was a mystery. I did not expect some things to happen that did and that was surprising. I couldn’t put the book down because I was so engrossed in the story and couldn’t wait to see what happened next. Majeedah Johnson is a great story teller and I hope to see more from her.
Was very intrigued by the story and the twists.

I absolutely devoured this book.

I absolutely devoured this book. I had to force myself to read slower so I could savor, rather than rush through, each page. This was an excellent read and I am eagerly awaiting the second installment! Virginia Heaton is a successful Vice President at Sutla, a multi-million dollar corporation dedicated to funding socio-economic improvement programs and initiatives in the Washington, DC area. She and her boyfriend Jonah, a high-profile attorney and former employee of Sutla, are among the Capital’s power couples. One would think Virginia had it all; however everything is not as it seems in either her personal or professional life. Even Virginia herself has secrets. She battles a dangerous addiction that will threaten everything she holds dear as a new case of Jonah’s draws her deeper into a cut-throat world of deception and intrigue. A world where no one can be trusted and shadowy conspirators will stop at nothing, including murder, to keep their deeds private.

I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this book. Once I started reading it, it was very hard for me to put down. The author was very skillful with all of her descriptions, from the characters to the locations to everything in between. I felt like I was Virginia. I felt like I was in D.C. The main character was someone who we all could relate to. She’s a woman trying to get her life together and deal with circumstances that many of us know all too well. The plot kept me guessing the whole time, and I must admit that I didn’t guess correctly. I can not say enough about the ending. What I liked best about it was that it wasn’t thrown together quickly just to wrap everything up. That’s all I can say without revealing it. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. It’s easy to read and I promise you won’t be able to put it down until the end.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read!

 I thoroughly enjoyed this read! I could barely put it down and wished for it not to end! Brought me back to my love of mysterious written by authors such as Walter Mosley. Majeedah is definitely 1 to add to the list. Looking forward to what’s next!
