#BookReview: The Dilemma by @BAParisAuthor

Synopsis: It’s Livia’s fortieth birthday and tonight she’s having a party, a party she’s been planning for a long time. The only person missing will be her daughter, Marnie.

But Livia has a secret, a secret she’s been keeping from Adam, her husband, until the party is over. Because how can she tell him that although she loves Marnie, she’s glad their daughter won’t be there to celebrate with her?

Adam is determined everything will be just right for Livia and the party is going to be perfect… until he learns something that will leave him facing an unbearable decision.


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: 
The Dilemma is a heartbreaking story about a family with secrets. Will the secrets Livia and Adam are keeping tear their family apart or can they survive the tragedies? B. A. Paris had me in tears for most of this book. I just wanted to reach into the book and hug the main characters and tell them that everything would be ok. I haven't been this emotionally invested in a book in a while. There were a few parts where the pacing of the story was a little slow but overall I loved the story.
