To the rest of the world Corynn Hayes was a brilliant writer and entrepreneur. To Karlee Jones, she was not only a mother but a best friend.

The depth of the secrets within those pages end up devastating Karlee, forever changing the memory of her mother.

The Diary: Succession of Lies is a novel that exposes the secret life of a mistress. It is a story of love, lust, loss, and redemption and takes us through the trials of two generations of women. The Diary gives a different perspective on the image of a mistress, a woman often vilified throughout literature as a harlot and a home wrecker. It tackles several questions as to why a mistress stays, is love possible in such a taboo relationship, and is love ever really enough to endure the consequences that come later.
