False Pretenses

Zoe Broussard and her husband Pierce have moved to Louisiana to establish Zoe B's, a Cajun, down home style eatery. Things seem to be going well for them including the possibility that Pierce's gumbo could possibly take first place this year earning them a well deserved place in the community.

However when mysterious envelopes begin to appear with Zoe's name typed on the front and inside containing 5 words in cut out words from magazines saying "I know what you did," Zoe begins to wonder if her past is about to catch up with her.

Meanwhile Vanessa and Ethan Langley have purchased the old Langley estate in hopes of restoring it into a Bed and Breakfast. However when their 4 year old son, Carter claims to have spoken to the "Candy Man" in the closet who promises him lemon drops if he keeps his presence a secret, they begin to wonder if the Candy Man is real or a figment of Carter's imagination. The police can find no evidence of a break in and when a white man is found hung just on the outskirts of their property line, they all begin to wonder if the Candy Man has anything to do with it.

I received the book False Pretenses by Kathy Herman compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and have to say I really enjoyed the storyline. Set in the Bayou's of Louisiana, the story will unravel among the secrets that Zoe is hiding from her husband along with the mysterious man in Langley Manor. This sets the stage for showing just how devastating secrets can be, and how nothing is truly hidden that God won't use for His good. I would rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars and is available in paperback and eBook formats.

Here's even more great information about the book, the author and even a first chapter peek into the mysteries in the Bayou!

Kathy Herman


Suspense novelist Kathy Herman is very much at home in the Christian book industry, having worked five years on staff at the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and eleven years at Better Books Christian Center in Tyler, Texas, as product buyer/manager for the children’s department, and eventually as director of human resources.

She has conducted numerous educational seminars on children’s books at CBA Conventions in the U.S. and Canada, served a preliminary judge for the Gold Medallion Book Awards of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association , and worked as an independent product/marketing consultant to the CBA market.

Since her first novel, Tested by Fire, debuted in 2001 as a CBA national bestseller, she's added sixteen more titles to her credit, including four bestsellers: All Things Hidden, The Real Enemy, The Last Word, and The Right Call.

Kathy's husband Paul is her manager and most ardent supporter, and the former manager of the LifeWay Christian Store in Tyler, Texas. They have three grown children, five almost-perfect grandchildren, a cat named Samantha. They enjoy cruising, deep sea fishing, and birdwatching—sometimes incorporating these hobbies into one big adventure.


Zoe Broussard loves the life she and her husband Pierce have built in her beloved Louisiana hometown. She owns a thriving Cajun eatery in South Louisiana and is married to the love of her life.

But it’s about to become hell. One day, out of the blue, she receives a series of anonymous notes that sends her life into a tail spin. Five simple words, “I know what you did.” Zoe has a secret so terrible it could leave the business in shambles and tear her marriage apart. Unbeknownst to anyone, even Zoe’s husband, Pierce, she has a past—a past she had covered so well she never thought she would have to confront. How could anyone know what she did? Can she find the courage to face her past?
