In her second novel, Valerie Taylor-award-winning author of What's Not Said-gives readers another romantic comedy interwoven with forbidden love, infidelity, and family.

With the court date set for her divorce and the future she'd planned with a younger man presumably kaput, Kassie O'Callaghan shifts attention to reviving her stalled marketing career. But that goal gets complicated when she unexpectedly rendezvous with her former lover in Paris. After a chance meeting with a colleague and a stroll along Pont Neuf, Kassie receives two compelling proposals. Can she possibly accept them both?

Kassie's decision process screeches to a halt when her soon-to-be ex-husband has a heart attack, forcing her to fly home to Boston. There, she confronts his conniving and deceitful fiancee-a woman who wants not just a ring on her finger but everything that belongs to Kassie. In the ensuing battle to protect what's legally and rightfully hers, Kassie discovers that sometimes it's what's not true that can set you free.

"Valerie Taylor's prose is crystalline . . . she does not waste words, rather using them to create a tense, nerve-shredder that offers full entertainment to readers. What's Not True is compelling, real, and utterly enjoyable."
-Readers' Favorite 5-star review

"What's Not True is an engaging story of love, honesty, tangled family relationships, jealousy, and ambition. . . . As a beach reach and satisfying stand-alone sequel to What's Not Said . . . What's Not True expands upon many themes while staying true to the course of charting Kassie's emotional and romantic growth."
-Midwest Book Review

"This was a dramatic, comedic telenovela of a women's fiction about infidelity and fickle hearts . . . Overall, this was an enjoyable read, with spicy characters and drama galore."

"What's Not True is a heartwarming story that would make a great beach read, filled with plot twists and interesting characters. This captivating and romantic story is anything but predictable."
-Literary Titan 5-Star review

"A sizzling sequel that stands on its own with quick-witted dialogue, steamy love scenes, and a landslide of secrets and lies-but woven throughout is a tender love story with a heroine you will never forget."
-Debra Thomas, author of the award-winning novel Luz

"Once again Valerie Taylor draws the reader into a web of love, secrets, infidelity, and all the repercussions that follow. Taylor's talent for weaving events that produce unexpected outcomes kept me on edge. There was no way for me to predict 'what's not true.'"
-Heidi Daniele, author of The House Children
