Rachel's Folly by Monica BrunoRachel Richards’ ideal life is about to come undone.

It’s the week of Rachel’s best friend’s wedding. Her fiancé is a mysterious man named Jack, who seems to have no family or friends. After a night of drinking goes awry, Rachel is forced to face a dark part of herself she didn’t know existed. What started as a horrible mistake turns into a dark mystery as pieces of Jack’s past start falling into place, and Rachel’s life hangs in the balance.

Told from three unique perspectives and set against the backdrop of Austin, Texas, Rachel’s Folly is a fast-paced thriller that explores profound loss, morality, and the lengths to which we will go to keep our darkest secrets.

Betrayal. Deception. Retribution.
How far would you go to hide a secret?

“A psychological thriller [that] takes a serious, thoughtful look at the consequences of adultery. This is a book you can immerse yourself in fully. When the big moments, the twists and revelations do come, they are genuinely stunning. Highly recommended.” – Walter Conley, Back Again and Gone
