    Multilayer fiction that does NOT disappoint!!

    You just never know what will happen in a novel by Nancy Moser...and that's a very good thing! Patti McCoy is on trial for her life. She's accused of killing her boyfriend, Brett Lerner. Did she do it? Or did she just show up at the worst time ever? The jurors listen to all of the evidence, and then begin to deliberate. Among the twelve, we get up close and personal with several of them...and discover that this story is about far more than just Patti's trial... Ken, the washed up golf pro, has a choice of reuniting with his estranged son or living the life he pretends he wants. We also meet Abigail, a starlet in her time...now trying out for roles that really shouldn't be hers--question is, what will she do about it? Bobby works three jobs and is supporting a wife and three kids...and hiding from a past that makes him hang his head in shame. Can he overcome the obstacles in his way and succeed in life, or will he hang onto what is known, even if it's destructive? Finally, we meet Deidre, wife of famous surgeoun Sigmund Kelly...striving to have the perfect life she's always wanted and has finally earned...right? What lengths will Deidre go to in order to keep her family whole and complete? What we thought was about a murder trial turns out to be so much more...and that's just like Nancy Moser! A muli-layered author who always surprises with so much more, you just can't go wrong with her novels. I'm giving 'Solemnly Swear' five out of five bookmarks with a gavel as a charm...and an order to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth...I loved this book, and I think you will as well! Happy Reading! Deena at A Peek At My Bookshelf

    fantastic storyteller

    Brett Lerner was a blackmailer who was waiting in his hot tub for the mark to arrive and give him his payoff money. Instead, the blackmailer hits Brett over the head. Brett is later found by his pregnant girlfriend Patti McCoy who starts screaming and then runs away when the police come. They find her and arrest her and put her in jail until the trial date arrives.------------ The members of the jury are a mixed group from a famous actress to a man who works three minimum wage jobs because he doesn¿t believe in his own talent. Also in the group are a former golf chairman and the wife of a doctor who operates on children for free. One of the members of the jury is pushing his/her spouse to sway the jury for a guilty verdict and though that person agrees to do so, the price paid is enormous.------------------- Nancy Moser is a fantastic storyteller who lets her audience see into the hearts of the characters. There is nobody evil in this book, just lost misguided people making awful, not to say illegal decisions. SOLEMNLY SWEAR shows how one fabrication can spiral into many more lies and hurt other people, especially loved ones as Sir Walter Scott proclaimed: ¿Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.¿ Some of the jurors learn from their experience and try to turn their lives around to become better people none of them will be like they were before the jurisprudence experience.--------- Harriet Klausner
