    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.

    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.

    I wasn’t expecting that!

    What a great little mind twister this was. I enjoy following along a story where you have to piece together a puzzle and Hailey's retelling of her past had you doing exactly that. This reads almost like a journal but better. She starts out the chapters in present time with a little bit of thought that has you wondering what is about to come, then she reverts to the past. You then read the past as if it is the present time. I'm not a big fan of time jumping back and forth but the way this story was laid out, I didn't struggle with it at all. I would not classify this as a romance even though she does have romantic involvement with more than one man in the timeline. The focus is all about finding out what happened on the nights she doesn't remember and the results of those nights. You are left wondering why she doesn't remember, if it's because of something someone did to her or where there other things in play. It left the story open to go in any direction at any moment that made for a really great read. A Perfect Lie is a standalone book, so no worries that you are going to have a cliffhanger at the end. The ending does leave me with a few questions that I believe is left for the reader to interpret for themselves. I highly recommend this if you really want a story that will pull you in and have you mind constantly running with all the little clues Hailey reveals to you one piece at a time.

    This is a long tease thriller!

    Oh Ms. Jones! A Perfect Lie is a consummate thriller, a long tease that is going to keep you guessing until the end. This story is a web, a cocoon of deceit and double talk.  Hilary is in the midst of it all trying to find the way to the truth, her truth.  What this girl has to go through and the justified issue of trust she has makes you cheer for her and her fight. This book made me think and thinking is good! The relationships that Hilary has are varied and you see from her point of view, it may be skewed, it may not be honest, but it is her story and she tells it brilliantly. Every time I get my hands on a Lisa Renee Jones story, I know I am going to be sucked down the rabbit hole of her making and not let you leave until she is ready. Read this story, savor all the words and even if you don't want to, read this slowly so you can see the clues,  I couldn't figure it out until the very end, which was fantastic! I love a story that keeps me guessing until the end! Well done, Ms. Jones! I cannot wait to see what you come out with next!
