Masks: A Twisted Tale of Revenge
Author: C.A.Bell
Genre: Erotic thriller/suspense
Release Date: March 21st 2017

Masking a problem doesn’t fix it. No matter how long you keep it covered.

We all hide behind masks. Whether that be a forced smile to a loved one after a long day. A sympathetic frown of concern to someone that doesn’t really matter to you. Or a professional face at work after an almighty row at home. The fact is, we all do it. We do it because we want to be prettier on the outside than we truly are on the inside. We do it to hide the cracks that have formed due to life. But what about the people who are forced to wear masks? The people who are forced to hide their true colours because society says so?

Life has thrown its fair share of crap at Lois Johnston, and the one thing that has kept her sane and going for the last seven years is her husband, Nathan. But what happens when the one person that is keeping you safe from yourself leaves, taking not only your heart, but your sanity with them as well?

For the first time in a long time Lois is about to remove the mask that was forced upon her years ago. But what’s matured underneath after years of heartache and hiding is something even uglier than before. Life has twisted her into a monster, and she’s about to set it free.

* This book contains reference to child abuse, suicide, erotic scenes, and murder. *


Pretty Masks by C. A. Bell is a dark and twisted psychological thriller, unlike any that I have read.  The story is powerful, the characters are complex, and I was hooked from the beginning. The author took me on an intense roller coaster ride, one that had me captivated and awestruck! It’s dark, gritty and definitely not for those looking for something light and sweet!

I recommend you do not read any spoilers before beginning Pretty Masks.  Therefore, I am purposely not going to discuss any of the details.  I feel it may take away from your experience if you read too much about the plot.

A definite add to your TBR list!
