About this ebook

NY Times & USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart brings you The Fallen O’Connell, “Now over eighteen years later, the truth about Raymond O’Connell has been revealed, and it has come at a cost. That cost is measured by the loss of life, the loss of innocence and the loss of what could have been.”

“Hold on to your seats! This book is filled with so many twists, turns and surprising revelations that you won’t be able to put it down until you have read the last page.”  (Rebmay)

Thirty-five years ago, Raymond O’Connell didn’t exist, at least not until the moment Iris walked into his life. His very existence had been a secret, a carefully cultivated lie, except for the fact that he loved Iris and the six children he’d never planned on having. He’d become careless, living a life that belonged to someone else.

Becoming Raymond O’Connell had made him forget who he really was, and when he fell in love with a fantasy he knew he couldn’t have, he put his family in danger. Ultimately, he found himself covering up a murder to protect the woman he loved, and that act forced him to walk away and return to the shadows of a secret life that he couldn’t find his way out of.

When he returns to Livingston with a son in tow, what he doesn’t expect is to be dragged from the shadows to protect a family that suddenly has a target on their backs. Soon, Raymond finds himself becoming part of a bigger, deadlier plot—one that could leave someone in his family, someone he’s sworn to stay away from, dead.

The choice he’ll have to make to protect the O’Connells could come at a heartbreaking cost. Can Raymond choose between the son he has now and the family he walked away from?

OMG, if you thought you had gotten off the rollercoaster ride after reading the previous book in the series, The Family Secret, think again. You are still on it and this time it’s not only an emotional one, but also one filled with danger, and twists and turns that will have your head spinning, and on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last. In this latest story, Raymond O’Connell, a man that didn’t exist 35 years ago and was created as a cover, is back in the town of Livingston. This time with a teenage son. A son that refuses to leave town and has become very close to Allison, Ryan O’Connell’s daughter. To complicate things , the children, now adults, that he abandoned 18 years ago, discover he’s in town and his appearance has put a target on all of their backs. As the plot thickens, more than it already is, we are told why he left, how each of the siblings feel about his return, and how his teen son reacts. So hold on to your seat in this latest story, in a series that keeps getting better each time. I was entrusted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
