The Pretender

By TA’MARA HANSCOM

The Pretender: A Blackguard in Disguise (Reata Publishing, September 2017)
Set in South Dakota in 1975, where eighteen-year-olds could order 3.2 beer in a bar, and loaded guns were kept under the counter.
Frankie Valli sang “My Eyes Adored You,” and American soldiers returning from Vietnam struggled with their new reality.
It’s within this tumultuous season of American history that Tillie Caselli meets Noah Hansen, and they are never the same again. Their lives were mysteriously intertwined—and had been for many years—yet they had no idea.

From the moment they met, Tillie and Noah wanted to spend the rest of their lives together, but a deliberate omission will keep them apart—and that same omission will be responsible for the escape of a murderer, and a bride’s deception.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

The 1975 Rapid City and Sioux Falls, South Dakota setting of The Pretender was interesting. I don’t remember reading a book set in this area, and I enjoyed the descriptions of the area and getting to know this part of South Dakota. The book started of ok for me, but Tillie is a most confusing character. To be in the situation she is in, she just doesn’t seem mature enough for what she is doing. I was just really frustrated from the beginning with Tillie, from the artwork, to her reactions to the situation she witnessed, it was just all something that just left my head spinning. Though through all this, the storyline is good, a good clean story to read. I encourage readers to check this one out, your opinion may very well be different from mine!

I received this book from Litfuse Publicity Group and the author to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
