ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Suspense novelist Kathy Herman is very much at home in the Christian book industry, having worked five years on staff at the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and eleven years at Better Books Christian Center in Tyler, Texas, as product buyer/manager for the children’s department, and eventually as director of human resources.
She has conducted numerous educational seminars on children’s books at CBA Conventions in the U.S. and Canada, served a preliminary judge for the Gold Medallion Book Awards of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association , and worked as an independent product/marketing consultant to the CBA market.

Kathy's husband Paul is her manager and most ardent supporter, and the former manager of the LifeWay Christian Store in Tyler, Texas. They have three grown children, five almost-perfect grandchildren, a cat named Samantha. They enjoy cruising, deep sea fishing, and birdwatching—sometimes incorporating these hobbies into one big adventure.
Zoe Broussard loves the life she and her husband Pierce have built in her beloved Louisiana hometown. She owns a thriving Cajun eatery in South Louisiana and is married to the love of her life.
But it’s about to become hell. One day, out of the blue, she receives a series of anonymous notes that sends her life into a tail spin. Five simple words, “I know what you did.” Zoe has a secret so terrible it could leave the business in shambles and tear her marriage apart. Unbeknownst to anyone, even Zoe’s husband, Pierce, she has a past—a past she had covered so well she never thought she would have to confront. How could anyone know what she did? Can she find the courage to face her past?

I loved the Sophie Trace Trilogy by Kathy Herman, and couldn't wait to read her latest series called Secrets of Roux River Bayou. I was not disappointed!!
Filled with romance, heartache, danger and some awesome new friendships, the characters in this book captured my heart and my attention from the start. I especially loved the mystery of the "Candy Man" that nobody else saw except for a four year old who swears it wasn't his imagination.
Through all the turmoil and suspense, the main characters in False Pretenses had a deep faith that gave them the strength and determination to do what was right, even though it was so very difficult. Being honest with each other and accountable to God was a strong theme throughout the book.
I highly recommend this new series by Kathy Herman, and look forward to the next book!
