Overview

Behind every code of silence…

Detective Jolene Preston has the right to expect backup from her partner, but the sexist attitude from the rest of the force is something the narcotic squad's lone woman fights on her own. Until she discovers a thirty-year cover-up, exposing her Cherokee heritage—and a prejudice she can't take on alone.

…lies a multitude of sins

Mason Blackfox grudgingly helps the rookie trace her family history because he knows personally that lies cause only hurt. But then his own daughter demands to know the truth about her grandparents, and Mason needs the lady cop. She's the only one who can possibly understand.

Tulsa Narcotics Detective Jolene Preston is stunned to learn that the man who raised her is not her biological father instead she learns she is Native American. Already an outsider within her unit as its only female, Jolene wonders how much additional prejudice the men will toss her way once they discover her background. Still feeling a need to know more about her paternal culture, Jolene asks her neighbor Mason Blackfox for help.-------------- Mason does not want to help Jolene trace her roots as he has his own secret that he hides even from his daughter. Still he feels obligated so he guides Jolene on her quest to know more about being a part Cherokee. As Jolene and Mason begin to fall in love, his somewhat on the wild side daughter Debra demands to know more what happened to her grandparents, part of a three decade old cover-up by powerful adversaries who will kill to keep secrets buried.------------------------ HER SECRET FAMILY is a solid contemporary romance in which the adult love subplot takes a back seat to the issues facing Native Americans as assimilation vs. traditon is deftly interwoven into the story line. Mason is an intriguing protagonist who has in many ways turned his back on his heritage to the point of rejecting his best friend¿s request to honor the deceased man who raised them and aliening his daughter by rejecting her need to understand her roots. Jolene forces him to confront his past and present if he wants a future with her. Though their romance is secondary, fans will enjoy Sherry Lewis¿ fine contemporary.--------------- Harriet Klausner
