The Woman Behind the Smile: Triumph Over the Ultimate Online Dating Betrayal by Debby Montgomery Johnson-Review and Giveaway

How I Lost a Million Dollars on a Dating Service could be the title of this book but The Woman Behind the Smile is so much more than a “Catfish” story – a term used to refer to someone who creates a false online persona to reel someone into a romantic relationship. Many people are looking to online dating as a way to get back into real life after the death of a spouse, divorce or a failed relationship. We paint ourselves as the “perfect partner” with a profile that reflects our life’s story, or does it? In The Woman Behind the Smile, Debby shows how during much of her life she hid behind the mask of being the perfect wife, mother, Air Force Officer, banker, legal assistant and friend – until life was completely changed by “The Call.” The subsequent rebuilding of her life would include a journey only seen on Lifetime Movie Channel! Like Debby, we all have some hidden stories and like her, it’s now time for us to STAND UP in our power.

Debby Montgomery Johnson is a woman on a mission. In her book, “The Woman Behind the Smile” she shares her personal experience with a love that turned into betrayal and financial disaster and she removes the mask of shame and shows others how do to the same. Many of us have something, something we’re hiding, something we’re ashamed of, something that through no fault of our own or through our own making, something that we keep hidden and that,  in turn, keeps us hidden, from each other and the world.
From Vermont and a graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Debby is the President of Benfotiamine.Net, Inc, a vitamin supplement company that provides an alternative for the pain of neuropathy, a nerve disorder.  (Benfotiamine.Net).  Benfotiamine makes an extraordinary difference especially for diabetics and their families.
Her background is diverse, from working as a paralegal and bank branch manager to being a U.S. Air Force officer, serving as an Intelligence Officer at the Pentagon, the Defense Intelligence Agency and in Wiesbaden, Germany.   Debby is just like you. A woman on a mission to live an authentic, joyful life as the Woman WITH the Smile rather than behind it.

At the beginning of the book Debby says to her readers that, "I want to inspire you to uncover your untold story...remove your mask and STAND Up to your Power. Stand up for your heart, your health, and your happiness." This whole book had a very positive message about how to make your life better regardless of what has happened to you. 

Debby had many hard things happen in her life including losing her husband when he died young, and then falling in love with someone online who turned out to be a scammer who robbed her of a huge amount of money. Either of these things would have crushed most people, but Debby showed her bravery by being honest about her experiences and now tells her story to help others.

"I want to learn to be FINE...Fulfilled, Inspired, Naturally beautiful and Exceptional. But many times FINE means something less than fine." This thought in the book hit me with a punch. I always tell people I am "Fine" and give a big smile. This book is about how to not let our fears and insecurities rule our lives, but make changes that will empower us. It also gives many great tips of how to be aware of who you interact with while online. It's easy to hide who you really are from others, especially online. Debby tells her story to inform others how to stay safe from possible scammers that are out there. For those of us that are single I read carefully the tips she gave throughout the book.

I've met Debby in real life and she is an amazing lady. She is very inspiring, as is her book. This book while speaking of things that could have been total roadblocks in her life, stays positive and leaves the reader with hope amidst life's struggles. I hope people will read this and feel as uplifted and truly learn to be FINE and wear true smiles of happiness.
