A FINE IMITATION
Author: Amber Brock – Smyrna, GA
Vera Bellington has beauty, pedigree, and a penthouse at The Angelus – the most coveted address on Park Avenue. But behind the sparkling social whirl, Vera is living a life of quiet desperation. Her days are an unbroken loop of empty socializing, while her nights are silent and cold, spent waiting alone in her apartment for a husband who seldom comes home.
Then Emil Hallan arrives at The Angelus to paint a mural. The handsome French artist moves into the building, shrouds his work in secrecy, and piques Vera’s curiosity, especially when the painter keeps dodging questions about his past. When the dangerous mysteries of Emil’s past are revealed, Vera faces an impossible choice–whether to cling to her familiar world of privilege or risk her future with the man who has taken her heart.
