About this ebook

Annie and Hank have created a perfect life in Laguna Beach but when a dark secret is revealed, will their marriage survive?

In high school, Annie Johns was the calm, supportive sidekick to the rest of the tumultuous female stars of the hit reality TV show, Laguna Nights. Today, she’s living the happy life as a mom that she predicted on the show long ago. There’s only one problem: the secret from her past that haunts her most nights, a secret that if revealed could ruin everything she shares with her husband, Hank, the man who saved her from the heartache.


***Laguna Heights can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novella. And if you enjoy Annie and Hank's story, please consider reading the rest of the Laguna Beach series.

Secrets, betrayal, fear. Annie had lived with those most of her adult life. Coping was not easy but she managed until she got the shock of her life. A visit from the past. Now one shocking night of violence threatens to destroy all that she holds dear. Kaira Rouda has written a story that every woman should read. Annie was trapped within a prison that she created to escape the events of the past. Her predicament angered me because she didn't deserve the fall out she had to endure because she trusted the wrong person. The seriousness of this story is evident from the first page. One devastating event led to a spur of the moment the decision that could topple her whole world. Laguana Heights is gripping, heartbreaking and triumphant. I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review. A stunning piece of fiction that lingers on after the last page.

I have one problem with the book…it ended!! This is the second in the Laguna Heights series and it was fantastic (even thought I read number three before this one, which is great because you don’t have to read them in order). I love the series. Author Kaira Rouda has really written a great series. This book is about Annie and Hank who are happily married with two kids and one on the way. The book goes back and forth in today’s time and Annie’s past. Something happened in Annie’s past that she has been very secretive about that could destroy her happiness when Chris suddenly shows up. The book has love and heartache in it and a few tears. Rouda does a great job of describing the characters and I like the method of going from the past to the present. As I said the only problem was the book ended. I enjoyed it so much I wanted it to continue. There was so much more that could go on with Annie and Hank.

This is Annie and Hanks story. You go between now an ten years ago whe. They met. This was a very good story and keeps in a good story of what happens with characters in time. Kaira Rouda really knows how to keep you guessing and interested in the storyline. This was a great read.
