The Truth About Lies (The Truth Duet, #1)


Truth: From over a thousand miles away, I watched on the screen of my phone as two men murdered my wife. And I was helpless to save her.

Consumed by hate and rage, I spent four years running from my memories.

Until a shattered woman gave me a reason to stop.

Cora lived in a nightmare, but through sheer force of will, she’d turned it into something beautiful. She had a smile that could pierce the darkest soul. And with one glance, she shredded mine.

Lie: I was only there for a fresh start.

Lie: I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

Lie: There was nothing I could do to save her, either.

But that’s the thing about lies—you never know who to believe.

💋 My Review:

WOW! This one surprised me in a really good way. There’s so much more to this terrific story that I first thought. The twists were epic and the love story is sweet and sexy. Like the best mysteries you don’t get the whole story until the very end. This one has a fantastic ending setting up for the next story. I must admit that at about the half way point I wasn’t feeling it. There was some confusion and weird behavior from the characters so I skipped to the ending. Yeah, I’m one of those. I sometimes read the end before finishing the book. With this one I still had no clue about most of the reveals and the intricacies of the story. The writing was superb with a storyline that’s suspenseful, dangerous, mysterious and sexy, with several surprises that I didn’t see coming. Penn was a conundrum. Who was he and what did he really want? He grew on me as the story progressed until I was a goner by the end. I loved him! So strong, protective and sexy. I really liked Drew from the beginning even with his mysterious flaws. I hope he gets his own story. Like Penn, Cora grew on me too. It took the entire story unfolding to really know her and her decisions. What a heroine! She has the same qualities as Penn. An thrilling, tragic story with a sensitive subject element that’s handled exceptional well by the author. I can’t wait for the next story. I loved it!

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
