I am Nina Meditz, editor and friend of the author, Kelly O'Callan. Her first book, Breaking Limbo, was published just two months ago. Kelly has just released her second book, The Cardholder. To say that I am even more enthusiastic about this book is an understatement. So far I have read it four times and am so excited that it is finally ready for the public. To be honest, not only could I not put this book down, but I asked Kelly to please consider following it up with a sequel, it's that good!
The Cardholder is a psychological suspense book. Psychologist, Maggie Simmons, is a marriage/couples therapist who has been rated number one in her city of Philadelphia. She is happily married with one son, and it seems her life is perfect. Then one day a new patient, Mickey Dillon, arrives in her office with an unusual request for help. At first Maggie hesitates, but her ego will not allow her to refuse the challenge before her. Maggie agrees to help Mickey, but in order to ensure success, she violates some serious ethical practices, including involving her sister, Annie. The more she crosses professional lines, the deeper in trouble she gets. Until one day her whole world, as she knew it, falls totally apart and she loses everything.
The story has an unusual twist and surprise ending that you will never expect! It leaves the reader wanting more.
