New Synopsis The Chopped Gem

Bonnie and Richard Brault are heading to Italy with their teenage twins, Evangeline and Aaron. The holiday will be a new start, a way to patch up their differences and repair the damage done to their relationship years ago when Richard had an affair, leaving Bonnie devastated, betrayed and bitter.

But while they concentrate on tying up the loose strands of their marriage, is there something else happening right under their noses? Could the secrets their children are keeping prove even more damaging – to their lives, their hearts and, ultimately, their future?

New Review

The Chopped Gem opens with what life is like for twins Aaron and Evangeline Braults. Their mother Bonnie has them on a strict routine with little time for them to just have fun. She rules the family. Their father Richard goes along with whatever she wants following a mistake he made years ago. The family are heading for Italy for two weeks holiday before the twins get back to preparing for the next school year.

They go to stay with good friends Lilith and Antonio Mianis who also have twins Called Giovanni and Giuseppe. Over the two weeks Aaron spends time with Giuseppe and gets up to no good, unknown to his parents. While Giuseppe’s parents know he can be difficult to deal with and hope that Aaron will be a calming influence. Meanwhile Evangeline sneaks around to spend time with Giovanni who she falls in love with.

The story follows along nicely and is an easy read. The scene is set for magical mystery throughout the book with just enough information to wet your appetite. It ends nicely with you knowing that there is going to be a sequel, which I am looking forward to reading.
