Secrets, Lies & Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Beginning: #1

My name is Tessa Scott and I’m a liar. Not by choice, of course. I have been forced into this predicament because of being in the wrong place at the wrong time; my home. Now I pretend to be something that I used to be before “they” took over my life.  That man made me second guess everything I believed to be true and just in this world. My friend, Tierney James said it would be therapeutic. I’m not sure my real therapist would agree. Yes, I have a therapist. Once I begin my story you’ll understand why I need someone sane to confess my sins. Besides. I didn’t have a choice. Everyone at my day job is mandated to visit Dr. Wu. But I’m getting ahead of myself.

I’m a happily married woman with three kids, two boys and a girl. I live in a beautiful

Victorian farm house in Grass Valley, California. My husband is a lawyer and I’m a teacher. Or at least I was until Enigma got involved. Now I live a secret life that parallels my pretend life. I swear I didn’t have a choice!

It started when Captain Chase Hunter forced his way into my house after the rest of my family left on vacation. He lied to me from the first moment we met. Considering he saved my life twice that day I forgave him. I also started down a perilous road of hero worship. Maybe that’s why I do it. Our friendship turned into a complicated relationship that jeopardizes any happiness with my husband Robert. If he ever finds out what I’ve done in the name of national security he’ll either divorce or kill me.

I’m already feeling like I shouldn’t have started this blog. I’ll continue if you are interested in my story. Sometimes I’ll have to just write about my day or what the kids are doing. But mostly, I need to tell you the shameful things I’ve stooped to doing in the name of freedom.

*Keep the story going by checking in each week to see how our heroine manages a normal life laced with danger and adventure. I warned her this could get tricky.

  1. Could have sworn there were going to be chocolate chip cookies here. Oh well. Dieting anyway. I love Tessa, although I’m not convinced she’s still in love with her husband. I guess time will tell as I eagerly await the next installment of the Enigma series. Can’t wait.

    1. The cookies come from her baking them all the time for events and the team. And this was suppose to be how she got started. As this new book will show, things between her and hubby are not so good. Chase is another story!
