** spoiler alert ** Carol Ross Joynt's Twitter bio reads, "Husband died, leaving me w/ 5 yr old son, surprise million $$$ IRS fraud case, his bankrupt saloon & no map..." So I thought I'd read it. She's a good writer and the book held my attention in the week it took to read, but I can't say I liked it. I do believe this 40 something year old woman who wrote for Walter Cronkite at 22 and was a producer for Larry King didn't know what her husband was doing with regard to their money and taxes during their marriage, and I feel sorry for her. He appeared to come from money, he owned a business, it appears the husband actively lied to her. But I don't know that I can recommend the book, however I do recommend looking at the legal documents you sign, and if they are complicated, having a lawyer explain them to you. I know I sound mean.
