Nothing hurts like the truth.
Doctor Rowan Dupont knows a serial killer is coming for her. Julian Addington has been waiting. Watching. And it’s only a matter of time before he strikes. But what Julian doesn’t know is that Rowan is ready for him. And more than anything she wants answers. How well did the depraved killer actually know her mother? And how many lies have been spun in the years since she took her own life?
Working alongside her childhood friend Police Chief Billy Brannigan, Rowan is determined to get to the bottom of her mother’s puzzling suicide once and for all—even if it means exposing an unsettling past. It certainly seems like her family’s Victorian funeral home has borne witness to more than one dark secret, but when a recent double homicide leads to an even grislier discovery, separating the truth from the lies might be the last thing Rowan does.
The Lies We Tell by Debra Webb is a great suspense novel. There is this layer of deceit, betrayal, and buried secrets that one woman is trying to dig up. Most of it leads to her family. What were they hiding and why…and what is real? That’s the big question. When Rowen’s research leads her to only one man. She’s not ready to ask him for the truth, if he’s telling the truth. But he’s all she has in getting closer to the answers. There has been so many murders that never went solved and this was a good story. I liked how one thing led to many being discovered…and how one determined woman is set on bringing the truth out. Catching the killer, is a dangerous game. I liked the blossoming romance between Rowen and her male partner. Romantic suspense novels are my favorite and this worked for me. I found this book intriguing, realistic, and entertaining. I have to read the next book which comes out in March.
