Misconception by Christy Hayes

By Christy Hayes

Suburban Atlanta stay-at-home mom, Pace Kelly, finds out she’s pregnant three years after her husband Jason’s vasectomy, her once happy marriage is pushed to the breaking point.  Forced to put his dream of opening his own architecture firm on hold, Jason Kelly tries to get excited about another baby. But a trip to the urologist leaves him staggered. Despite Pace’s insistence that she hasn’t cheated, Jason is left to wonder if his blueblood wife has finally grown tired of his humble background and their middle class lifestyle. Unable to chalk it up to an error, Jason does the unthinkable.  But the truth he discovers is a heavier burden to carry than the innuendo that was eating him alive. Now the tables are turned and he’s left holding a smoking gun.  An innocent wife. A desperate husband. A no-win situation. When the smoke clears, will their marriage survive?

What's a wife to do? The doctor says she's pregnant, her hubby's had a vasectomy and there's no chance he's the father. She's not unfaithful. What happens  now?

Author Christy Hayes has written a thought provoking story of a family in turmoil. An unexpected impossible pregnancy for Pace, as well as a shocking revelation about her father, the senator, turns this average American family upside down.   Hayes has written believable people in believable situations in Misconception. You feel the anguish and pain that Pace and her husband Jason are going through. These are likable characters and you ache for their uncertainty and frustration. Hayes puts just the right amount of suspense needed to keep the story evolving and the anxiety at a high level.  

Misconception, as a title, has a duality to it that becomes apparent as you reach the fulfilling end. It's a well chosen title!  This is a great summer read, a meaningful tale of trust, distrust and assumptions wrongly placed. I liked the way the multiple plots wove together in a methodical and brilliant ending!  

You won't be disappointed with Misconception. I read it over two days, it's a fast read, but that doesn't mean it's to be taken lightly.  Hayes reminds us how important the simple things are to us, family, trust, love and the truth. Simple concepts...that are often lost in our own misconceptions.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars!
