Oxford Resident Angelia Downey Releases Second Book: Lies & Deceit 2

Angelia Downey

Angelia Downey of Oxford, NC has a dramatic imagination…so dramatic that two books which features the Dunnigan’s a fictional family from North Carolina. Lies and Deceit is a two part series that tells the story of a family tangled with secrets, mystery, lies, lust, and murder.

A graduate of J.F. Webb High School and Vance-Granville Community College, Downey is the daughter of Veola M. Downey and late Calvin T. Downey.

Downey says, “I have always had a joy for reading instilled by my mother and a knack for telling stories.”

Just when things were looking up for the Dunnigan’s, they are hit hard with trouble again. Now, Malissa  has kept another secret from Antonio, one that he did not even have a clue about but may send him packing with Antonio Jr. But the secret that Malissa has harbored all these years will cause someone to end up dead.

Meanwhile, Douglas is still trying to find out who killed Charlene. As he comes closer to finding out, he stumbles upon something else. One thing Douglas does find out the hard way is that hell has no fury like a woman scorned.

Caesar and Dante have so many issues until it is not funny anymore. Caesar once again has come in contact with Cynthia, who will cause a great deal of turmoil and frustration.

Dante has married the love of his life-or so he think- until one night, someone shoots out the back window of his SUV. As Dante unravels the truth, he is hit with something that he never saw coming.

By looking at Clinton and Vera, they appear to be the ideal parents and grandparents, but which one of them have a secret that will blow the family off the map?

This book, Lies and Deceit 2, takes place in North Carolina. A real page-turner, it will have you guessing all the way through. I don’t know if the Dunnigan’s will recover from any of this.

Lies and Deceit 2 is AD Downey’s second book and is currently working on Lies and Deceit 3 the Finale.
