How deeply can the past be buried?

By all appearances, the Cavanaughs of West Palm have an ideal marriage and family life - the perfect home with few complications.

But castles built on sand are eventually washed away by the sea.

Meet...

Leslie Cavanaugh - she's not the woman she claims to be. Once Leslie Phillips, she's hiding a painful secret that's about to shake her family to its core.

Luke Cavanaugh - Leslie's second husband, but he looks eerily like her first. An award-winning architect, Luke's got designs on getting to the bottom of his wife's past...in more ways than one.

Kathryn Cavanaugh - Luke and Leslie's only daughter. In competition for her mother's affection, Katie risks much more than the family's good name with exploits of all the wrong places...

Dawn Chadwick - Leslie's only friend and sister in widowhood. What would Leslie have done without Dawn all these years? And what would Luke?

Grace Cunningham - abandoned at birth...and pissed about it. What makes a mother abandon her child, not once, but twice in a lifetime?

Meanwhile, a mysterious couple secretly rendezvous in a Palm Beach bungalow...

In this steamy saga of lost love, marriage and motherhood, hidden secrets and shocking truths collide as Leslie Cavanaugh's past rocks the present in the most intimate betrayal of all.

THE GREAT BETRAYAL will keep you up all night.

Editorial Reviews

RT Book Reviews - Sheri Melnick
"Intensely intriguing and deeply riveting, Black's latest is a first-rate page-turner that will draw you in from the very beginning and never let go. This is women's fiction at its best, with a twist of psychological thriller and a touch of romance..." Top Pick!
Jeri Neal
Millenia Black is a mistress at neatly laying out each part of the story, like building an elaborate building that forms a fascinating whole. She clearly and succinctly draws verbal pictures of each character and their interrelationships with each other. It is masterful...A thought provoking, extremely well-written book, this one will haunt your thoughts long after you�ve finished the novel."
Carol Ann Culbert Johnson
�On a scale from 1-10, I definitely give this book 10. Ms. Black is a talented writer, and I can�t wait to read many more of her books like The Great Pretender and her next book, The Great Mastermind. If you like a book with romance, family obstacles and scandals, The Great Betrayal by Millenia Black is a must-read for you.�

I recommend this book to all my nook sisters/friends. This was a good book. The closer you get to the end, the more shocking you will be. Hopefully it is a part two. ThompMoor 2/18/12

In West Palm, Florida Leslie Cavanaugh lives a great life. Her husband Luke, an award winning architect loves her and she loves him. Their daughter Kathryn is a delight whom both her parents cherish (and spoil). Leslie¿s career is booming. Nothing could go wrong for her or her family.---------------------- That is until her past in 1985 Clearwater surfaces. Back then she married Jeff Phillips who suddenly died when she was eight months pregnant. Grace was born in Memphis, but Leslie was unable to cope so she fled. Now her secret that she never told her second spouse or second offspring has come home to roost at a time when she believes Luke is cheating on her and Kathryn is chasing after bad men. However, she has her own troubles to deal with starting in a cemetery she has avoided for two decades, but never really moved on from there.-------------------- THE GREAT BETRAYAL is a powerful family drama that grips readers from the moment of full clarity as to why Leslie feels her world imploded and never slows down until the final twist. Leslie is one of the best protagonists of the year as she is fully developed to the point that readers know her and understand her motives, past and present. Fans of deep psychological character studies will want to read Millenia Black¿s strong tale.-------------- Harriet Klausner
