VALE, N.C. — Author Lisa G. Wright announces the nationwide release of her riveting, new novel, “Past Secrets,” where she shares the story of a woman facing the consequences of murder and the crumbling of a seemingly perfect life she thought she had.

In “Past Secrets,” Helen had the America dream in a small coastal resort town, with its majestic historical houses amid the quaint antique shops and restaurants along its beautiful shore.
