In the wilds of Topanga Canyon, Cassie Shaw is right at home - with the call of birds, the sound of wind in the trees, the harmony of a world without people.

But everywhere else, life is a little harder for Cassie. Her mother believes in Bigfoot. Her wisecracking pet parrot is a drama queen. And at the age of 30, newly single and without a college degree, Cassie desperately needs a decent paycheck. Which is why, against all her principles, she lies on her résumé for an office job at an elite university - and then finds herself employed in academia by two professors who are as rare as the birds she covets.

One of her new bosses is Professor William Conner, a sexy, handsome, cheerfully aristocratic expert in animal behavior. Soon, under Conner's charismatic tutelage, Cassie carefully begins her personal transformation while meeting the kind of people who don't flock to wildlife preserves - from impossibly brilliant academics to adorably spoiled college boys. But her future - and unlikely new career - is teetering on one unbearable untruth. And Cassie's masquerade is about to come undone...in a chain of events that will transform her life - and the lives of those around her - forever.

A novel for late bloomers of every exotic shade and stripe, A Version of the Truth is pure entertainment - at once hilarious and wry, lyrical and uplifting. Download and start listening now!

    " Good book. About a young widowed women who got a job because she lied about getting a degree. She practices a little how to stand up against men, say no. She has a pet parrot the she treats like a boyfriend. She loves bird watching! She has a one night stand with a rich man who keeps on calling her. She is smart enough to ignore his calls, he is just a womenizer. Even though this book is chick lit it had some good vocab words and a little bit about bird behavior, though not enough to have a conversation about. Its a one time read, not good enough to buy or share. "

    " Interesting premise caught me from the start, but the end of the book was kind of rushed and unfulfilling. "

    " Another faux-literary, fairly lackluster beach read with pretensions. This one involves a young widow living in downscale L.A. with her mother and a gray parrot who lies about her education (she never finished high school due to dyslexia) to get a job as an assistant in a university department, and while there manages to captivate the most dashing and poetic possible professor. But the storytelling is all over the map -- loose plot threads, neglected characters, characters who materialize out of nowhere, and characters who are described as full of it or incredibly annoying who then turn on a dime into Prof. McDreamy. At least, unlike their previous novel, this one has no bibliography and only two or three footnotes. "
