Publisher's Description

The truth could cost her everything....
Olivia Mott didn't intend to lie. Somehow, it just happened. And wasn't it all Lady Charlotte's fault anyway?
Now Olivia's position as assistant chef at Pullman's elegant Hotel Florence is dependant upon her keeping her secrets. And sometimes lies have a way of leading to other lies. Should Olivia admit her real past and accept the consequences or keep quiet in order to preserve her comfortable new circumstances?
Deception seems to be part of everyday life in the company town of Pullman, Illinois, where the grand Pullman Palace Car is manufactured. Samuel Howard, Olivia's friend and the town manager, seems to think everything is fine, but Olivia observes something quite different. Could it be that Olivia is not the only one harboring secrets?

Sir Walter Scott said, “O what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!” Within her book, In the Company of Secrets, Judith Miller constructs this kind of “tangled web.”
Olivia Mott is a helper in the kitchen of an earl and his wife in London, England. When she is advanced upon by the chef, she decides it is time to leave. The earl’s daughter has the perfect idea for both of them to escape, but her plan requires many lies.
The two women end up in Pullman, Illinois, and through more lies, Olivia becomes the assistant chef in the local hotel’s kitchen. Charlotte finds that she is pregnant with an illegitimate child.
The rest of the book follows the exhausting efforts of Olivia to memorize the lies she has told. However, she continually loses ground and soon finds herself even losing the man she loves because of her deceit. In the most unforgettable scene of the book, Fred, who has been courting her, tells Olivia that they must break off their relationship because he could never pursue a woman he doesn’t trust.
In the Company of Secrets examines the consequences of sin, especially lying, as well as chronicles the journey of Olivia to faith in Christ. Olivia must constantly battle her feelings of guilt before she will even accept the forgiveness of God; even then, she has a hard time believing that He would want to listen to her prayers. When Olivia does decide to be truthful, she experiences God’s forgiveness while finding that the consequences of her sins cannot be easily escaped.
Although the book does not end with all the loose ends happily tied up, it does leave the reader with a sense that in the end, all will be well. Judith Miller leaves the reader with the promise that God will be faithful as his followers continue to be obedient to him. The book was an excellent challenge to follow the advice of Mark Twain: “Always tell the truth. That way, you don’t have to remember what you said.” – Jenni Ritschard, Christian Book Previews.com

    This review was written for In the Company of Secrets - eBook.
    First, I didn't realize this was one of a series of books based on the primary character. Normally other books I've read end with a conclusion of the main characters and then continue with the secondary characters in another volume. However, this book leaves you with no ending and you are forced to purchase the next book etc. (No doubt this is the plan of the author). Having said that; I did enjoy the storyline, but do not appreciate the "need to make multiple purchases" in order to come to a finish.
