Family of Lies

Unabridged Audiobook

Date: May 2014

Duration: 15 hours 0 minutes


growing up poor in Texas, Vera Lomax used every gold-digging trick in the book to land a rich husband. Now living in the lap of luxury in San Francisco, her only job is to fawn over her much-older husband, so it's been easy for her to balance a life of shopping and affairs with younger men with a major secret: the sixteen-year bribery of one of her husband's mistresses to keep her pregnancy under wraps. Vera figures that a little hush money every month will ensure her husband's fortune is hers alone. . . Unfortunately for Vera, Sarah Cooper is the child Kenneth Lomax always wanted. When the father she never knew shows up at her mother's funeral to claim her, it's a fairy tale journey from the ghetto to a mansion on a hill. But Sarah's life is not as carefree as her father wants it to be . . .because Sarah knows from the start that her step-mother is as two-faced as they come. And after losing all the family she's ever known, she wants a life that's richer than what Vera's got planned for her. Neither woman can be sure who will win Kenneth's heart and fortune. But as Vera and Sarah scheme to get what they want, everyone they know will be choosing sides, taking chances, and gambling it all to come out on top. . .

    Lame. Portrayed people of color in an insulting and stereotypical way.

  • Kelley Stidham

    not my favorite

  • Cockersjenn

    Way too long and predictable. This could have easily been a 4 hr book

  • Latoya L.

    Well well, Mary has done it again. The characters, the tone, the setting, she nailed it. Mary just needs to work on the verbiage, because no one talks like this anymore, then again who knows. Vera, messy old Vera got what she deserved. Being money hungry gets you nowhere, and she ends up just as she was in the beginning, alone and poor. I'm glad Sarah found love and got away from that house of gold diggers. I just hope her new love doesn't use her for her money. The lengths people go to for money is crazy, but not surprising at all. #Book28of2021 #bookworm #whatsnext

    I was terribly disappointed in this point. Literally, it is the a book about a gold digging woman who cared about nothing but money. The plot was very boring.

  • Kathryn A.

    The book has so many horrendous characters it was hard to listen to sometimes. The plot was a bit ridiculous and there were many indiscrepancies in the story. It was kinda fun to listen to, though, because the narrators were good. But when even the heroine is a cheater-oh well.

  • Shaunte M.

    I think it's absolutely macktabulously worth reading

  • Rakenya W.

    I would love to see this as a movie, maybe on UMC or Lifetime. It started a bit slow, but I stuck with it & it got good, really good ❤. I did like Sarah's narration & Vera's. Kenneth's was a bit weird. LOL.

    Good book but I didn’t like the ending.
