Behind Every Lie

BEHIND EVERY LIE is now available for preorder!

Eva Hansen wakes in the hospital after being struck by lightning and discovers her mother, Kat, has been murdered. Eva was found unconscious down the street. She can’t remember what happened, but the police are highly suspicious of her.

Determined to clear her name, Eva heads from Seattle to London – Kat’s former home – for answers. But as she unravels her mother’s carefully held secrets, Eva soon realizes that someone doesn’t want her to know the truth. And with violent memories beginning to emerge, Eva doesn’t know who to trust. Least of all herself.

My Top Book Picks for Fall

I’ve read a number of stand-out books the last few months. Here are my top three fall reading recommendations.

The Perfect Wife, JP Delaney

This book was totally different than I expected…in a good way! Original, clever and intriguing, I couldn’t put the book down.

When Abbie goes missing, still not found after five years, her tech-genius husband, Tim, recreates her as a co-bot (companion robot). But the more Abbie finds out about the original Abbie’s life, the more she begins to question everything she’s being told. And so she decides to find out what happened to the real Abbie.

The Stranger Inside, Lisa Unger
An utterly unforgettable tale of justice, revenge and good vs. evil.

The story centers around Rain’s tragic past: she narrowly avoided being kidnapped when she was 12. Her two friends weren’t so lucky, though. Tess was killed and Hank came back a different person altogether.

Now Rain is living a peaceful, domestic life as a stay at home mom. But when another brutal murderer who escaped justice is found dead, Rain is unexpectedly drawn into the case.

The Poison Garden, AJ Banner

Dazzling and at times frighteningly real, this eloquently written domestic suspense is a deceptive hall of mirrors experience.

On the eve of her first wedding anniversary, Elise makes a shocking discovery that turns her life upside down. And then she finds something from her deceased mother that makes her question everything. But is she being paranoid, or should she really trust no one?

    Love the cooler weather in the fall, and love the pumpkin spice chia tea with honey and milk, my favorite drink while reading a good book like yours!
