Book 142: WICKED LIES Review

I'm sure most of you realize by now that I enjoy reading. If I don't read each and every day (even if it's only a few pages) it feels as if something is missing. The past 5-6 days have been rather rough due to a series of severe migraine headaches that interfered with my day-to-day living as well as my reading. The physical pain was excruciating but not being able to read was almost intolerable. Needless to say when this last headache became bearable with pain medication the first thing I did was read. 


I chose to read from my ever-growing TBR pile and one of the books read was Wicked Lies by Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush. I'm so glad I began with this book. It is filled with suspense, romance and drama. Imagine being raised in all-female (namely sisters and an aunt) and rustic environment and leaving for the big city at age 18. Well, that was the life of Laura "Lorelei" Adderley. Now she is dealing with her cheating ex-husband and a deranged killer that's on the loose. A killer that's out to finish what he started years earlier . . . killing all of the women from Siren Song, her family's home. If that's not enough to deal with, Laura must also contend with an unplanned pregnancy and a burgeoning romance with a reporter, Harrison Frost.


Yes there's a lot going on in this story (and I didn't even mention everything) but it all makes a weird kind of sense in the end. Ms. Jackson and Bush have crafted a delightful romantic suspense tale in Wicked Lies. This isn't a short book but it is definitely worth reading, at least in my opinion.
