Join us for a Pop-Up with author Monica Ayra and her books The Next Mrs. Wimberly & Navy Lies.


Happily ever after isn’t guaranteed…

Brooke Montgomery has struggled ever since her parents died in a tragic accident, leaving her to take care of herself at a young age. Working double shifts as a waitress just to pay the mounting bills was a cycle she seemingly couldn’t break from.

Until she met him…

The charming, wealthy, handsome surgeon, Noah Wimberly.

Dr. Noah Wimberly’s first wife, Riya, mysteriously died, yet her body was never found. When Noah meets Brooke, who has an uncanny resemblance to Riya, Noah knows he can’t let Brooke go.

She’s his mid-life crisis.

He’s her way out.

The only problem is Brooke starts to realize that the tight-knit Laguna Beach society she’s now immersed in has a strange way of protecting its own, and she may need to unearth deadly secrets before it’s too late. The next place after the honeymoon doesn’t seem like it’ll be home.

Will she be able to handle what’s coming for the next Mrs. Wimberly, for better or for worse?


Living in the shadows for years means you know just how dark things can be.

She’s married to the man who should have been mine. She’s raising the child who should have been mine.

She’s living the life that should have been mine.

Her family destroyed and tormented me.

They thought they had gotten rid of me like mere trash.

But here I am.

Lurking in the shadows.

Watching their every move, plotting and planning.

They thought they were powerful.

But here I am.

I may have to lie my way into their perfectly tailored lives, weaving and snaking myself into

their safe haven. All I know is this isn’t a simple white lie I’ll have to tell. I’ll have to tell a dark one, a destructive one…

A navy lie.

And when I do, I’ll take back everything that is mine.
