A Rose by Any Other Name. . .

When I wrote Sin of Omission, Shakespeare’s words kept coming to me only I thought: A lie by any other name is still a lie. Shelley Jackson, smart, star basketball player at Northwestern U a few years before and Charlie Costigan’s roommate and best friend found herself in a situation that also involved Charlie’s brother, Jimmy. Here’s the turning point. Instead of “coming clean” Shelley opts for secrecy and the risk of losing everything. If at first you practice to deceive. . . Definitely not a good plan.

Sin of Omission
by Charmaine Gordon


Seems easy enough. Jimmy Costigan will deliver supplies to sister Charlie’s projectm Haven, a respite for the needy, and leave. Simple.Instead, Shelley Jackson answers the door, says she needs him and soft-hearted Jimmy stays to protect the family seeking refuge from a sociopath. He didn’t count on falling in love.

A twist of fate intervenes when Shelley keeps a secret that threatens to break apart the Costigans and her future. A mysterious client, Deanna Rose, enters Haven, victim of a savage beating under strange circumstances. Using Internet resources, Shelley digs in to find Ms. Rose has an unsavory past.

With the reputation and safety of Haven at stake, Shelley is at risk to lose everything … and everyone she cares about.
