No other author plumbs the depths of the human heart - or portrays the joys of human redemption - quite like Fern Michaels. In Fool Me Once, she captures the fraught, yet richly satisfying story of one woman’s search for the mother she never knew...and her discovery of the woman she’s yet to become. Olivia Lowell always believed her father’s claim that her mother died in childbirth, until the shocking day a lawyer informs her that her mother has just passed away, leaving her a fortune. The money comes with a caveat - and a confession. In her will, Olivia’s mother reveals that she and two college friends committed a crime long ago, and now she wants Olivia to track down her accomplices and convince them to come clean. Feeling betrayed by her father, and unsure that she even wants her mother’s tainted money, Olivia must decide if she can handle the secrets of the past. Fulfilling her mother’s request won’t be easy, nor will mending her relationship with her father. But with the help and affections of a handsome young lawyer, and the sweet companionship of her beloved terriers, Olivia will come to understand who her mother really was, and who she, herself, was meant to be...
