Book Review: The Dilemma by B.A. Paris-3.5 Stars

What would you do if you had *potentially* life changing, earth shattering news that would ruin someone’s happy moment?

This is exactly what Adam struggles with the entire length of this book. His wife, Livia, has waited years for this moment-her extravagant fortieth birthday party. She’s excited and radiant, so when Adam discovers something that has the potential to ruin her day and upend their lives, what should he do?

Livia, while excited for her special day, is also wrestling with something she knows will shatter their picture perfect family when it comes to light. I was SO irritated with Livia almost the entire book. If she would just SHUT UP for a second and let Adam speak for crying out loud!

By keeping these secrets from each other, are they protecting one another or just being selfish? This book was completely different from the author’s other novels. I was expecting a thriller, but this one was an emotionally charged family drama. It’s about grief, relationships, secrets, and healing. Although I was irritated with Livia the majority of the book, I still enjoyed reading this one. It draws you in, kicks your heart up into your throat until you think you won’t be able to breathe until you find out how each other will solve their separate dilemmas.

Thank you to St. Martin’s Press and Netgalley for an ARC. The Dilemma releases June 30, 2020!
