'Suspenseful, sensitive, sexy, subtle....'
What if your name was a lie? What if your whole life was a lie? In the split second freelance writer Ridley Jones saves a small child from being run over, her life changes forever. A newspaper photographer catches everything on film and Ridley becomes an instant media darling.
After her 15 minutes of fame, just as her life seems to be settling back to normal, an unmarked envelope slipped under her door shatters everything. It contains the newspaper article, along with an old photograph of a man, a woman who looks eerily like Ridley, and a little girl. The accompanying note reads simply: 'Are you my daughter?'
Forced to question everything she thought she knew about herself and her family, Ridley wanders into a dark underworld she never knew existed. Now she's not sure who is on her side or who has something to hide. even and maybe especially Jake, her new neighbor - a stranger she is irresistibly drawn to who seems to have secrets of his own.
With a plot that moves lie a shot and a heroine to die for, this is a killer of a read. 'Beautiful Lies' grabs you by the throat from the opening pages and doesn't let go.
