Overview

False Pretenses by Catherine Coulter

#1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter's first contemporary suspense novel.

First published in 1988, False Pretenses is the explosive story of how one woman survives the destruction of her perfect life—and the intentions of three mysterious men...

A famous concert pianist married to a wealthy international business tycoon, Elizabeth Carleton is the envy of all until the night her husban is stabbed in the chest with an ice pick and everything falls apart.

Accused of murder, Elizabeth has little hope of being exonerated until a surprise witness appears to give her an airtight alibi. The jury finds her not guilty. The only thing is: She’s never met the man who testified on her behalf. 

Free and completely bewildered, Elizabeth must now cope with the financial empire her husband left behind and his family, who want to destroy her. Then three men suddenly appear in her life. Can she trust any of them? Or is one of them a murderer?

This book is about a woman who inherited millions and a business empire. Although she knew nothing about running a business, she decided to learn everything she could and with help was very successful. She was accused of the murder and her dead husband's family did everything they could to undermine her - to no avail. Quite a surprise ending - you'll love it

I love all the Coulter books that I have read so far, although this one seemed to in parts drrrrraggg on the last 10 chapters were faster paced. There are alot of characters in this book and that was sometimes confusing. I would prefer the FBI series she writes in my opinion.

I had just read Beyond Eden before reading this book. It was a dissapointment. Elizabeth was too gutless and let too many men push her around. Overall, a very frustrating book to read.

Sorry to say that I was bored by this book. It reads like a bad tv movie -- I could not wait to finish it...and I'm sorry that I wasted my time.

Thoroughly entertaining--another of her mystery/romance that is fast-paced and keeps the reader enchanted.
