Oddly enough, the unthinkable happens when Cara Fleming is forced by her husband, Mario to confess a lie and save her marriage or walk away knowing she can't survive on her paycheck alone. No matter her decision, come hell or high water, she must prove her innocence.
But when beautiful Cara crosses paths with her husband's best friend, detective Lester Miller, she plunges into uncharted territory with nothing but high morals and the need to find the culprit guide her. Cara learned some extraordinary secrets - some about Mario's family, a shocking discovery about her girlfriend, Jennifer Tate, and one that the whole world wants to know.

Anonymity was a book I could not put down! I was filled with a myriad of emotions--desire, joy, happiness, love, surprise, disappointment, empathy..---I found myself totally engrossed with several characters and identified so strongly with some that I actually felt what they felt! Wow, this is a book you won't want to end. An awesome book that captivates the reader with an engrossing mix of romance, mystery, suspense, and exhiliration lasting from beginning to the very end. The author definitely outdid herself on this one, leaving me anxiously wanting more. I strongly recommend this book to everyone and to book clubs. Never a dull moment!Was this review helpful?

I really enjoyed this book. It held my attention from start to finisb. You will fall in love with some of the characters. Have you ever been falsely accused and didn't know how you were going to clear your name? What if you were accused of having an affair so your husband thinks so? Will you do anything to prove him wrong? Well Cara did just that not without drama. Her husband Mario wasn't always honest with his extra activites either. This stories leads to a lot of suspense,hearts brokens and hidden secrets from Mario's family. Would you trust your friend with your wife or husband that is a big time dectective that may be investigating more than what he bargains for? You will have to read for yourself how the other characters will have you on a roller coaster guessing was it you? 'Reading Is What We Do' Newport News VAWas this review helpful?

Margie Gosa Shivers¿s Anonymity was a good read. She expertly folded into her story suspense, evil, truth, forgiveness, faith and love. She writes well, clearly defining her characters¿it seems no one can keep a secret and they all had them¿their space, and their love for each other. She manages to write gentleness with all of the above going on. Can¿t wait to get into the sequel, Once Is Never Enough. I like her style.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Margie Shivers has written s story woven with a tapestry of characters and scenerios that holds the reader in suspense. Cara's life is complicated with family, friends and foes who stop at nothing (including her life) to accomplish their selfish motives. I won't spill the beans on the story, but I am marking my calendar for the sequel book, 'Once Is Not Enough'. This writer is one for your personal library.Was this review helpful?

Chicago represented a new beginning. Mario appeared to be different. He preferred tennis, his friends, and nasty habits to that of his wife. Did he notice that the sizzle in the boudoir was now a chill? Cara was desperately trying to rekindle what the college sweethearts once shared. Cara has been unfaithful! Or so Mario had been told. With wild turkey fueling his suspicions he was not only doubting the wonderful love he's been fortunate enough to take pleasure in. Mario was actually dissecting the fruits of their labor. `I got this feeling, and I just can't turn it a loose That somebody's been getting next to you don't want to walk around knowing I was your fool cause being the man that I am I just can't loose my cool' Cara Fleming, a doting wife couldn't understand why, let alone how someone would defame her in such a disgusting manner! And to think, her husband wouldn't expose her to what was being said about her! Cara wasn't sure which part was worse; being framed, or that Mario doubts? When the heart wants, what the heart wants then nothing or no one is safe! Secrets will be revealed, tears will be shed, and lives will be lost. Will these obstacles in Anonymity be too much for the Flemings to bear? Someone please call 9-1-1! With everything said and done, it seems that something might have been over looked. What you do in the dark shall soon come to light. Who will be reaching for the light switch? ~STAY TUNED~ Personally, I found Anonymity translucent, and overly dramatized. The main character Cara at age 28, although she was a southern girl, she just appears old in manner. Then the fact that the supporting characters were all so traumatized that she lived on her own, supported herself only made me further question the era. It's hard for me to affiliate suspenseful with this when the flow of the story is consistently redundant. Even with all of that said, Margie obviously a devout South Sider truly represented. Known for it's politics, museums, sky rise buildings, and trendy restaurants Chicago is a very beautiful city. She got an entire star for representing 'MY KIND OF TOWN!'Was this review helpful?

Cara Fleming has to fight for everything she knows to be right and true. Her husband has accused her of being an adulterer based on an anonymous phone call. Their marriage teeters on the brink of destruction but Cara steadfastly refuses to apologize or admit wrongdoing in something she clearly had no part in. Moving to lead separate lives Cara is determined to clear her name. She is certain that she has been framed. Secrets revealed, hurts healed and deception woven in creates a well-told story. Anonymity is a novel that is action packed, suspenseful and riveting. There is a large cast of characters who play a part in the framing of Cara so the reader might want to jot down a few notes along the way to keep everybody straight. The story has roots in Mississippi, Tennessee and Illinois. Typical of the black migration from the southern states to places like Chicago, Anonymity draws on close family ties and a strong sense of justice and equality no matter what the personal cost. As Cara pulls her life together and begins to discover who has set out to destroy her relationship and jeopardize her family she uncovers murder, mystery and intrigue. Mario, her estranged husband has completely abandoned her and she turns to his best friend, Detective Lester Miller, for answers. A fair man, Lester takes it upon himself to investigate with Cara and both recognize the path of danger she is on. It all comes spiraling to a head when Cara is targeted in a murder for hire plot where identities are being revealed that could further destroy several families. Anonymity is a captivating read. I couldn¿t put the book down and completed it in a day. A mystery that was strong enough to not let me rest until I knew all of the intricate details. The main characters were reasonably developed but too many people made it difficult to keep relationships straight. I found myself reverting back to prior chapters to remember who was who. After I had everybody straight, the amateur detective skills along with professional skills served to create characters that could be recurring in future books by Ms. Gosa.Was this review helpful?
