The Pretender: A Blackguard In Disguise

Born and raised in South Dakota, Ta`Mara loves to write about the Great Plains and the beauty and people of Italia. While her husband and children manage their two pizza ristoranti, Ta`Mara works full time on The Caselli Family Series, and ministers to women. It is Ta`Mara s prayer that as the readers explore the truths in these volumes, they will come away with a new perspective on love, forgiveness, obedience, and God's plan for marriage

Set in South Dakota in 1975, where eighteen-year-olds could order 3.2 beer in a bar, and loaded guns were kept under the counter.
Frankie Valli sang "My Eyes Adored You," and American soldiers returning from Vietnam struggled with their new reality.
It's within this tumultuous season of American history that Tillie Caselli meets Noah Hansen, and they are never the same again. Their lives were mysteriously intertwined-and had been for many years-yet they had no idea. 
From the moment they met, Tillie and Noah wanted to spend the rest of their lives together, but a deliberate omission will keep them apart---and that same omission will be responsible for the escape of a murderer, and a bride's deception.
My Thoughts:
Ta'Mara Hanscom is a new author to me. And she has certainly caught my attention with The Pretender!  There are four other books in the series and I will be reading them as well.  In this first book, readers are introduced to the Caselli and Hansen families through Noah and Tillie.  This cast of characters is absolutely intriguing.  There are so many secrets and family dynamics at play.  I got only a couple of pages in and was completely invested in the story.  And the ending!  Hanscom leaves readers hanging.  I especially like how Hanscom had the gospel woven throughout the story; not in a preachy way but as a natural part of the characters' interaction with one another.  And speaking of characters, Maggie might just be my favorite!
*I was given a complimentary copy of the book. All opinions are my own.
