Simone and Lee Boothby present a façade of normalcy to the world with their fine home and well-paid professions. But beneath it all their marriage is sterile, and the only thing keeping them together is love for their daughters.
They drift along until Simone's wild affair with a younger male client, and Lee's steamy liaison with his sexy young assistant. This creates a crisis that threatens to tear down their façades and put everything they value at risk.
From the author of Guilty Secrets.
I got the library to order a copy of your new book Facades for me.
I picked it up Saturday afternoon & had finished it by Sunday afternoon.
I thought the book was great... I loved the characters, the steamy bits & the whole story line. It was very cleverly put together.
When I had to break off to cook the tea etc. I kept thinking, can't wait to get back to that book.
Now it's finished, I feel a void, so it must have been good.
I usually get Danielle Steel books, but, to be honest, I much prefer your writing.
You seem to be much more down to earth & convincing.
Thanks again Cynthia for the good read.
(on Reflections of a Queensland Country Girl)
In this colourful and loving family memoir, Cynthia Lindenmayer writes expressively and humourously about her life growing up on the move around the southern and central areas of the state with her entrepreneurial mother and father. Father, Tom Collins gave her her writing pedigree and we are the richer for it.
She reflects on her eventual coming to terms with feeling a fish out of water, most of her life, initially on the move from town to town and then in the "big smoke" of Brisbane, where she moved at a naïve 21. A charming and detailed story that will appeal to country and city Queenslanders.

Cynthia Lindenmayer has taken a brave step toward the dark side with her second novel. Guilty Secrets is a move into the thriller genre, which is one of the most challenging for an author.
