 Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing about an incredibly important nonfiction book by Jessica Lewis, Don't Bypass Red Flags: Identifying the Signs of Drug Abuse in a Loved One's Life and Knowing When to Walk Away. It's a new release from January, and it's so, so important. I had the opportunity to not only work with Jessica Lewis on editing, but I also had the opportunity to read a review copy! Read on to learn more about the book.


"This book will be so impactful for those dealing with similar situations." ARC Reader.

When I married the love of my life, thought my happily ever after began once my husband lifted my veil at the altar. Yet, a few months into our marriage, a startling revelation uncovered his double life—filled with deceit, drugs, and unimaginable betrayal. The merging of his secret world with our shared life unveiled the stark truth about his priorities and lifestyle.

In Don’t Bypass Red Flags, I share my journey, intertwining memoir and self-help elements. This book delves into the red flags I overlooked during my relationship with a drug addict, incorporating biblical scripture to offer glimpses of hope amid the chaos.

Structured into three pivotal sections—identifying red flags, prioritizing safety, and finding hope in the unknown—this book goes beyond merely recognizing drug addiction. It guides readers through the aftermath, providing essential tools for those in relationships with addicts or seeking healing from toxic connections. These tools empower individuals to reclaim control over lives that were once overwhelmed by the madness of this lifestyle.

In a time when drug use and addiction are soaring in America, Don’t Bypass Red Flags emerges as a timely guide. It stands as an encouragement for those who resonate with my story, offering solace, understanding, and practical insights.
