❥Synopsis: Dr. Robert Hart, Sag Harbor’s just-named Man of the Year, is the envy of his friends and neighbors. His medical practice is thriving. He has a beautiful old house and a beautiful new wife and a beautiful boat docked in the village marina. Even his wayward son, Jonah, is back on track, doing well at school, finally worthy of his father’s attentions. So when Jonah’s troubled college roommate, Nick, needs a place to stay for the summer, Hart and his wife generously offer him their guest house. A win-win: Jonah will have someone to hang with, and his father can bask in the warm glow of his own generosity.
But when he begins to notice his new houseguest getting a little too close to his wife, the good doctor’s veneer begins to crack. All the little lies Robert tells—harmless falsehoods meant to protect everything he holds dear—begin to mount. Before long, he’s embroiled in a desperate downward spiral, destroying the lives that stand in his way. It’s only the women in his life—his devoted office manager, his friends, his wife—who can clearly see the truth.
Biting and timely, Man of the Year races along at an electric pace, with a wicked twist that you won’t see coming.
❥My Review: Ummm wait what?
I thought I knew where the story was going.. super captivating, filled with suspense.. and when I got to the end.. I realized.. I was way off on my theories. And I was so impressed.
“Whoa.. I didn’t see that coming!!”
So, it’s only fair for me to tell you a little bit about this novel.. it’s got all the lies, maybe crime? And one thing is certain.. Trust.. No One!
Find out what happens when the Man of the Year (Dr. Bobby Hart) suspects his beautiful wife of having an affair, with a man he calls his friend?
What may or may not be? Is this Man of the Year, paranoid, a liar, hiding a dark past?
I thought I knew.. but that was one twist I did NOT see coming!
