Favorite Quotes:

The best way to describe her was round—round face, round glasses, round bosom , round belly. Her silver-grey hair was cut short, and it “poofed” around her face like a dandelion gone to seed. She looked like a stereotypical grandmother, except for her sharp eyes, which peered out at me from behind black-rimmed frames. She smelled like a combination of mothballs and chamomile.

I had found some of Aunt Charlie's bags she had custom made to package her teas and tinctures. Across one

It Grabbed My attention and focus so strong I could not put it down. A word of advice when you get your copy. Grab a snack, a comfy seat, kick back and relax. You will not be moving until you finish this bad boy here. Remarkable job. Thanks for sharing.

I can’t believe that that it has been two months since I read and reviewed Michele Pariza Wacek’s (Michele PW) “It Began With A Lie.” Like I said in my last review, this is not my typical genre but this series had me hooked since I read the description. “It Began With A Lie” was not a cliff hanger but it definitely left me with a lot of unanswered questions! “This Happened to Jessica” is the second book in Michele PW’s Secrets of Redemption Series and you will want to read “It Began With a Lie” ...more

If you love to submerge yourself in a good mystery than the 2nd installment to Michele PW new series Secrets of Redemption titled This Happened to Jessica will be the book for you. This story Just like its predecessor takes us into the mystery of what happened to Jessica that night 12 years ago. But where It Began With A Life, left us with the burning needing to know what transpired that night that left one girl missing and another forgetting the details all these years. This Happened to Jessic ...more

**You must read the first book in this series! This is not a stand alone.**

Once again I was hooked by this book, after finishing book 1 I immediately started this one and I could not put it down. They mystery surround Jessica's disappearance and Becca's memories slowly returning keep me reading in the wee small hours of the night!

After the chaos that ensued towards the end of book 1, Becca is home, her husband is in jail and her stepdaughter Chrissie is in foster care. Yeah you REALLY need to re

A Great Second Book in Series

This Happened to Jessica follows up on the underlying storyline in book one of this series. If you didn't read book one, I highly suggest it as it is really tantalizing but not necessary as this book can stand alone on it's own.

This happened to Jessica by Michelle P.W.
A fantastic read. This is book 2 and we find out what happened to Jessica. It wasn't who I thought it was. I was surprised with who it was. Becca is still my favourite character. Cant wait for book 3. 5*.

This Happened to Jessica is the second book in the Secrets of Redemption series, so you really MUST READ It Began With a Lie (Book 1) FIRST, since this story takes place afterwards. I loved the first book, but I think that I'm going have to go with this one being my favorite. See, Becca is trying to put her life back together after all the chaos of her husband's actions, and try to make Redemption her home. But now there's new things from her past trying to come out, like the night she threw a p ...more

*Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie for my reading pleasure in hopes of an unbiased opinion, a review was not a requirement.**

This Happened to Jessica is book two in the Secrets of Redemption series. This series MUST be read in order. This book is NOT a standalone. Seriously, read the first book before you read this one. It’s a fantastic book so you don’t want to miss it!

When I read the first book I struggled with liking Rebecca and I can’t say that opinion has changed a lot in this book. She h

As with the first book in this series, it was exceptional, gripping, heart-racing and dramatic. It's many twists and turns really keep the reader guessing and hooked.

The characters were fabulous, as with the previous book. I certainly didn't see the ending coming. My guesses in my head were totally off the playing field so I was left shocked and reeling at the revelations. I still really love the main character, Rebecca, though in this book, she shined in a different way.

The storyline picks up

Overall. The main character seemed to move through her life in a fog, and portions were really grating when she would do things like keep drinking while saying maybe she shouldn’t, she would get clues but not act on them. Ok, so I did not like the main character, but I did want to find out what was going on. The rest of the story was nice, the plot, her friends, even the cat. It was just that main character....I was just irritated with her for the entire book, so it made the whole book

The story is well written and book 2 did wrap up most of what started in book 1. The supernatural element is still a bit wonky but there's enough reality to make up for it. I'm glad I gave the 2nd book a chance.

Spirits, a black cat, and murder make this novel hard to put down! Jessica and her friends try to figure out what happened to their missing friend when they were in high school.

This series just keeps getting better! The more I read, the more I HAVE to know. This book takes you on a journey from past to present that keeps you on the edge to the very end. The mixture of natural and supernatural forces keeps you guessing as to who, or what, is the real enemy. I cannot wait for the next book and to find out the source of the evil that plagues this quiet town.
