Quiet As It's Kept by Monique Miller

About the Book

In Quiet As It’s Kept, Will Tracy has been praying about and patiently waiting for the perfect woman and wife. He’s found her in Morgan. She has a beautiful body, no children, and best of all, she’s saved. Will couldn’t have asked for a better blessing—or so he thinks, until he starts noticing an abundance of unexplainable accidents that all seem to center around him. After one near-fatal accident, Will realizes that when it comes to his wife, Morgan, things are not always as they appear.

Morgan Tracy is living the life she’s always wanted. She’s found a handsome man who makes six figures and is kind, loving, and faithful. What woman could ask for more? Well, Morgan can.

Will starts to wonder if the good thing he has was really sent by God, or if the devil had a hand in putting their union together.

Book Review

Quiet As It’s Kept by Monique Miller is an exceptionally well written book. It touches on a taboo topic that is often over looked and under reported. Monique Miller did a wonderful job keeping the reader turning the pages.

Will Tracy and his wife Morgan appears to be a typical family who has hit a rough patch. With the downsizing of his job and a new baby to take care of Will steps up and do what he has to do by taking care of the household and the baby until he is able to find a new job. Will is a praying man and believes that God will provide what his family needs to survive. There is nothing that Will would not do for his son. Things start to get complicated when several ‘accidents’ start happing and Will must decide who he can trust.

Monique Miller wrote this story from a male’s perspective giving the readers an insight on what goes through a man’s mind when there is abuse involved in a relationship. If you were in an abusive situation would you know what to do? Could you recognize psychological or mental abuse? This is a must read for all, males and females.

I thoroughly enjoyed Quiet As It’s Kept and will recommend it to all my friends. This book was a true page turner. I found myself talking back to the characters of the book telling them what to do and what not to do. I can’t wait to see what Monique Miller writes next.

What Kind of Fool by Rhonda McKnight... Coming soon!

Available January 31, 2012

Secrets and lies from the past intricately tie two couples together, but threatens to tear their relationships apart.

From the Back Cover

Angelina Preston tunes out the voice of God when she decides to divorce her husband, Greg. She's forgiven him for his affair, but she won't forget, even though her heart is telling her to. Shortly after she files divorce papers, she finds out her non-profit organization is being investigated by the IRS for money laundering. In the midst of the very public scandal, Angelina becomes ill. Through financial and physical trials, she learns that faith and forgiveness may really be the cure for all that ails her, but can she forgive the people who hurt her most?

Sexy, successful Dr. Gregory Preston didn't appreciate his wife when he had her. His affair with a devious man-stealer has him put out of his home and put off with women who continue to throw themselves at him. Greg wants his wife back, but he'll have to do some fancy operating to get her. When the secrets and lies from his past continue to mess up his future, Greg finds himself looking to the God he abandoned long ago for a miracle only faith can provide.

Samaria Jacobs finally has the one thing she's always wanted: a man with money. The fact that she's in love with him is a bonus, but even so, life is anything but blissful. She's paying for her past sins in ways she never imagined and living in fear that the secret she's keeping will separate them forever.
