    Stick with it

    Summary: Hailey Anne Monroe spends her life in the spotlight of the press and the shadow of her father, Thomas Frank Monroe, a man expected to become a future President of the United States. And she hates her life and herself. Her mother was killed in a car accident when Hailey was a teenager. Thomas Monroe blames his daughter for a momentary lack of exceptional behavior (she went to and blacked out at a forbidden teenage party). He becomes emotionally distant, scarring Hailey for life with guilt. As we meet our troubled narrator, Hailey, she is twenty-eight years old. She is expected to marry the perfect man, Tobey, and go to law school at Harvard. Hailey is not in love with Tobey and she'd rather pursue a career in art. After Tobey and Hailey's best friend, Danielle, drag Hailey to a private club to unwind, Hailey blacks out after a single sip of a cocktail. The next thing she knows, Danielle is missing and assumed dead. Hailey's father's political machine whirs into action to begin the cover-up process. Hailey is eventually whisked away from Washington, D.C. and sent to Denver while the event cools down and becomes yesterday's news. It is in Denver that Hailey can finally breathe, think and start putting the pieces together of what really happened to her mother and her best friend. And the answer is not what Hailey expected. Comments: When I first started reading A Perfect Lie, I didn't particularly care for it. I didn't like the narrator, Hailey, with her doom and gloom present/past narration. But about a third of the way into it, I got more into the rhythm and started understanding why the author chose this style. After Hailey got to Denver, she not only became a more likeable character as the oppressive fetters of her life in D.C. are lifted, but the setting clicked with me. As soon as Hailey described the area to which she'd moved, I knew exactly where she was, because I lived there for several years. Having recently moved back to Denver, a city I love, I was delighted to be walking the streets of the Cherry Creek neighborhood with her. Recommended for readers of Thrillers, Political Fiction and General Fiction.

    A Perfect Lie

    This was so intriguing and was full of lies and betrayal but what more would you expect when you are groomed from a young age to be the future daughter of The President of the United States. This book was nothing like anything I have read from this author previously but it grabbed me from the first chapter and had me captivated and on the edge wanting to know what was going to happen next to the point I was carrying my kindle from room to room and sneaking peaks at my phone while out to dinner for Mother's day because I didn't want to put it down. I'm not going to tell you anything about this book other than that except don't pass this one up! Put it to the top of your summer read list! I highly recommend this one!!!!! **Received an ARC for review (and wondering why I waited so long to read it)**

    Amazing

    Amazing story that will blow you away. It's a departure from what I'm use to from this author but it's a book you don't want to miss. When warped family dynamics and politics are mixed together it makes navigating life challenging. That's the life Hailey Anne Monroe faces everyday. Her story will break your heart and keep you guessing as the past unfolds and collides with the present. I couldn't and didn't want to put this down. I just had to know what happened. The author did an amazing job of weaving a tale full of suspense that will grab your attention and keep you on the edge as you put the pieces together. Put this one on the top of the TBR pile.

    Not a political book...

    "I've learned to see the glass as half full, not half empty, but most of the time it's still filled with blood." This book was one of the first I was approved for on Netgalley. To be honest, I requested it because while in my preferred "mystery and thriller" genre I'm not usually a fan of books with a theme of "politics". But the cover was mysterious, and I thought, heck I am embarking on this new journey might as well try some new stuff. And I figured I'd be denied. While there is some "political" themes, this is for sure not a political book. A Perfect Lie follows the daughter of a presidential candidate who after the death of her best friend, begins to have her life crash around her. She doesn't know what is truth and what is a lie anymore. Her father cares more about his presidential campaign then his daughters well being. I love Lisa Renee Jones writing style! I think this is one of the books I read the quickest and a lot of that was due to Ms. Jones' writing style. She keeps you engaged, and I really enjoyed that the story was being told by Hailey Anne Monroe. I also really enjoyed the twists and turns the story took. Just when I thought I had it figured out something else would happen. Thank you to to Lisa Renne Jones, Julie Patra Publishing/Weapenry, and Netgalley for the advanced copy for my Kindle.
