Description

YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE A LIE MIGHT LEAD - While driving to a charming village tucked away deep in the Cascade Mountains of eastern Washington, where she is to begin a new job teaching high school English, Katrina Burton picks up a young hitchhiker who turns out to be a drunken creep. Fearful for her safety, she lies about her destination in order to get him out of the car. But when she later discovers that he is a teacher at the same school, she finds herself feeding that initial lie with more lies.

Then Katrina meets Jack Reeves. Handsome, charismatic and strong, he is exactly what she needs to extricate her from the expanding network of lies. She falls fast and hard for him. But when Jack lands himself in the middle of a grisly murder, she must decide whether to turn him in--or tell yet another lie.

    I read this book in two nights. A great read, not too complicated plot with suspense. Written very well!

    I rarely stop reading a book half-way through, but too unrealistic and unbelievable.
  • Ugh. Where do I begin?

    Really did not like this book. None of the characters were interesting or likable. The storyline was not very believable. Lots of cliches, idioms and stock phrases used - and used quite often in an inappropriate manner, in my opinion. (For example: after someone was beaten to death it was referred to as being "beaten silly".) Not many misspelled words but dropped and wrong words happened frequently. I appreciate that this was the author's first book and that after he gained more writing experience he went back and made more corrections but is still not a very good book.

    Great story. A little slow to start, but really made up for it. The action started. I really couldn't put it down. I even read it on my phone at the Dr. office. I will read more. Thanks Jeremy.

    It is not often that I actually complete a book but this one kept me interested all the way through ! The author really connected with the reader, allowing me to "see" the action and "feel" the emotions as I was reading. I am definitely satisfied with this story. This book was a great accomplishment !
  • AMAZING!!!!!! 💗💗💗💗💗💗

    I literally read this book in three days I couldn't keep my eyes off it. Very intriguing Keeps you on your toes and suspenseful. I'd love to watch the movie (hoping one will be made).

    Nice enough suspense to keep me reading despite the grammatical errors which drove me crazy. Otherwise I could have given the book higher stars.
  • Good book

    The book itself is an easy read and is interesting. However, for all those wondering the book in my opinion, is a little more mystery ( whose done it/what's going on) than thriller (blood and gore/ who/where's the killer). The book has it's moments and it is good for a quick read. however I feel the ending left much to be desired, suspense and plot wise. A little too out of nowhere and almost unnecessary.
