As a wife, mother of two, and business owner, Laura Frye seems to have it all but finds her life crumbling down around her when her CPA husband of 20 years fails to come home from work one evening. At first Laura believes it has to be either foul play or that Jeffrey has had an accident of some sort, but when she discovers the IRS has been investigating Jeff for tax fraud, it becomes all to clear that he left on his own accord. As a part of the investigation, Laura's assets are frozen. How is she going to make mortgage payments or college tuition payments for her son let alone pay her employees at the restaurant she owns?
Things get worse before they get better with a new revelation that Jeff was having an affair, her son being arrested, and Jeff's brother Christian, Laura's early love, returning. There's also Laura's interfering mother who doesn't think Laura can do anything right, and the local newspaper who continues to try Jeff's case via editorials and front page headlines.
If you have enjoyed Barbara Delinsky's later novels such as A WOMAN'S PLACE, COAST ROAD, LAKE NEWS, and THE VINEYARD, you are sure to also enjoy A WOMAN BETRAYED. This is highly recommended as a book difficult to put down once started. The devastating effects Jeff's actions have on his wife, children, mother, brother, business partner, and friend are well-documented. Surprises revealing motivation for not only Jeff but other minor characters keep the reader turning pages. In addition, the reader is treated to the budding romance between Tack Jones, the IRS agent investigating the case and Laura's best friend and attorney, Daphne. Delinsky has done a wonderful job of bringing this vast array of characters to life via the pages of this book. Being a fan of Barbara Delinsky since 1992, I wonder how I missed this book the first time around but am glad I finally found it. This is a must-read for fans of Barbara Delinsky.

BOOK REVIEW: Laura Frye has the perfect life or so she believes. One day, her husband of 20 years, doesn't come home. Laura, of course, believes the worst; something terrible has happened to Jeff. With her two children to think of, a business to take care of and the household to keep going, Laura is shocked beyond understanding when the FBI showed up at her door.
Embezzlement and deceit are the charges the FBI is bringing against Jeff. Then to make matters worse, her son is accused of rape. With her assets frozen and her business manager suspected of having an affair with Jeff, Laura is about to lose her mind. Then Christian, a lover from the past and the estranged brother of the man she married, comes back into her life. Was he here to help or cause her more heartache?
With the strong determination Laura has always shown and with Christian's help, Laura begins to heal and answer questions that have been with her for 20 years. A Woman Betrayed" has twists and turns the reader never expects. This is good reading and a wonderful romantic ending.
A Woman Betrayed was an absolute fabulous book. The book gets going on the first page and doesn't stop until the end. The reader begins to wonder just how much this one woman can take and how much she'll have to endure. The book is written in such a way that everything that happens to Laura and her family is believeable. Ms. Delinsky did her homework well before writing this book. Every event falls into place in a long (and I do mean long) line of betrayal. The storyline of Daphne, Laura's lawyer friend, and Tack, the IRS agent, added to the story too. Their storyline ties in with the rest of the story effortlessly.
I can't say enough about this book. I just couldn't read it fast enough. I had to know what happened. This book will bring out all the emotions--sadness, anger, hurt, and maybe a little happiness at the end. This is a book to keep and read again!
