Olivia Delgado wants to disappear from her horrible life in Blinding Mirrors by Shelley Halima. After having an encounter with a friend’s brother, Olivia is left pregnant, unwanted and ready to leave the horrible environment she lived in. Olivia starts working for a construction company where she meets the owner, Gino Valente. Olivia soon becomes Mrs. Valente and things start to look up for her. After Olivia gives her husband two beautiful twin girls everything starts to change in her and Olivia cannot control herself.
Gino Valente believes Olivia can give him everything he has been missing and that is a true family. When Gino starts seeing a change in his wife, he decides to set up a little surprise. Can he handle the outcome?
Twenty-five years later and Olivia is still up to her old tricks but now she has recruited her daughter, Lourdes, into her schemes. Olivia and Lourdes head back to Georgia to handle some unfinished business. Unbeknownst to Olivia, she will have to handle a whole lot more when her past is revealed.
Blinding Mirror is about family, deceit and drama. This book has a decent storyline that covers the transformation of an abusive young teenager into a money-hungry woman who loves attention. It was suspenseful and entertaining and I recommend this book to others.
