Secrets & Lies
Secrets, as they are, rarely devastate the national population as a whole. They are more often limited to the individual going on about their lives. That is what this story is about, a group of not-so-ordinary people, all from very different backgrounds, whose secrets and lies leaves a trail of honest deception waiting to upset the rituals of their daily existence.

Kennedy Jordan is a handsome young man with a secret past and a challenging future that keeps him in the balance between having what he wants versus what others expect of him.
Camilla Vargas is a beautiful ambitious young woman with big dreams of success that she has planned to obtain by any means possible, and vows to not let anything keep her from it.
Ulanda Jefferson is a hip outspoken fashionista with a fiery attitude. Armored with sharp-wit and an uncensored tongue, she is more than just a force to be reckoned with.
Bren Searcy is a grown-up lost in transition, (literally from male to female). There is almost nothing she wouldn’t bear to hang onto the happiness she has finally found.

In the end, for everyone involved, even the elements of true confessions gets lost in translation as the explicit details of who they are brings the group together in a surprising, yet necessary finale that could change the course of all their lives forever…

This novel reads like you're watching a movie! I could picture the characters clearly in my head. Every motion they made as smoothly articulated as Tracy James Jones' writing style. What is likely even more amazing that the writers ability to bring characters to life so vividly is the way they are all involved in each others lives.
This intricately woven tale keeps you guessing until the very end. Just when you think you have the entire connection figured out something else comes to light that makes you change your mind. I couldn't help but fall in love with all four main characters and going through all their trials and tribulations just kept me rooted to my seat for hours on end.
Richly intricate plots, amazing storytelling and complete surprise is what awaits you in this book. I dare not give away too much detail, this story is far too good to destroy with spoilers, but if you don't enjoy Kenny, Camilla, Bren, and Ulanda as much as I did, I'll be surprised! Tracy, all I can say is, "Write More!"
If you enjoy an intricate story line that deals in human emotions, this book will hook you from the very beginning. Tracy James Jones creates some very interesting characters as he carefully constructs a plot that is much like real life, complicated.
This book is full of surprises. The very nature of each lie and secret as they are finally exposed is at once heartbreaking and hopeful. If desire is the compass that guides us to our destiny then each character in this story must do what we all must do, learn to live the life that they were born to live. That is the ultimate challenge for all of us! Prepare to be faced with the honest truth even it makes you uncomfortable.
Secrets and Lies, what a perfect title for this book. Tracy James Jones did a wonderful job writing this book. This isn’t your ordinary boy meets girl romance novel with ordinary characters. And yet it is easy to visualize and like each character, and understand where they are coming from. All four main characters lived through their own trials and tribulations coming out on the other end stronger and happier. I look forward to more novels by this author.
