Keep Your Friends Close and Your Enemies Closer
This is a story of money, power, love, trust, family and friends. Author, Lisa Watson, weaves a tale of deception from the very outset of the novel. The Mitchell family is loaded and it seems that more than one person is out to harm the heir to the Mitchell fortune. Through several events, Devon, the only male heir to the Mitchell fortune, will learn just who he can trust. Will Devon allow pains of the past to stop him from having a future?
After a tragic event, Devon leaves town and leads a life not his norm. In a town where he thought he could escape the pain of this tragic event, Devon encounters more drama than a little bit in new love interest, Jayde Seaton. As Devon tries to rid himself of guilt he has carried for a while, he is on a mission to figure out strange happenings around him. An emotional wreck, will Devon find new and lasting love amidst all the turmoil surrounding him?
Supporting characters, Candace, Devon's parents, Sterling and Avalon Mitchell, Uncle Henry and Xavier, offer readers good subplots that add to the main storyline. This selection is a good offering from Ms. Watson. The book did start a little slow for me but after the storyline accelerated, I did become more engaged, wanting to know how things panned out. Overall, it was a good read.
