Mirrors Tell No Lies


Ashton Taylor Sperling looks in the mirror and wonders what has happened to his wonderful, happy life.  But, mirrors never lie: he is what happened to it.  As hard as he tried, letting go of the past was never an option.  Consumed by vengeance, he triggers a series of events that will change the lives of his perfect family forever.  The only thing left for him to do now is to settle the score, finally, and then live with the consequences -- or die.


This dark and sensual suspense novel is the roller coaster ride follow-up in the series entitled The Sperling Chronicles. The Sperling Chronicles: Dreams Thrown Away was the first novel in this fast paced drama. 

Rated *****5 stars

What a Sequel! (The Sperling Chronicles:  Split Images)


In Dreams Thrown Away, Dilsa Saunders Bailey introduced us to Kali and the Sperling men, and this sequel starts us in an unexpected place. In the middle of Colorado, a man who is beaten within a few inches of his death is found and nursed back to health. This man does not remember his identity or anything else about his life before Colorado. After meeting a “random” man at a store and following his instinct, this mystery man finds his way to New York City.


Kali begins to see this strange, homeless looking man around her kids and justifiably she is terrified for their safety. Her brothers in law (the Sperling men) seem to not think that this man is not a threat and puts him on their payroll. Kali becomes suspicious why the men seem to be so comfortable around this stranger and the more and more she really looks at him she begins to wonder if he could be her presumed dead husband, Ashton.


Split Images is mainly about vengeance and revenge and it is a rather dark read and makes you wonder to what lengths you would go to get your family back. Despite, it primarily being a dark read as mentioned previously, overall, it is a love story. Once again, Dilsa Saunders Bailey knocks it out of the park!
