After four years of marriage, Lucas and Gail Johnson lived an ideal life on their ranch 40 miles west of Austin. Ideal except for the child they both desired.
On a hot July day, a 1978 Olds Cutlass found submerged in nearby Possum Creek shattered their peaceful existence. Investigators determine the car went into the river about twenty years before, and the two people whose bodies were found in the car were murdered.
As the investigation comes ever closer into their tight-knit family, an unexpected night of indiscretion further dashes their dreams.
As both sides reel from the betrayal and the pressure of outside influences, Lucas and Gail are further hampered by death and deception. Whether they are able to find happiness again appears impossible. How will they untangle the web of deceit that has ensnared their lives? And, who killed the man and woman found in the creek?
Forever Faithful by Linda LaRoque takes an idyllic marriage and adds a strong mixture of murder, betrayal, lies, and deceit into the mix. LaRoque’s vivid, detailed writing further enhances the suspense and emotional depth of this story. Whether the Johnson’s can recover from the onslaught of evil provides a riveting tale of love lost and love found.
