Tell Her No Lies, by Kelly Irvin, is a very fast paced, action packed, romantic suspense novel. The story takes many twists and turns that kept me guessing what was going to happen next as well as who killed Judge Geoffrey Fischer. Nina and her sister were taken in by their uncle and aunt, the Fischers, as young girls when their mother was unable to care for them. While they were well cared for, the Judge left them know very plainly when he disapproved of something they did. He also kept secrets from the family.
Nina and her friend try to do their own investigation into who killed the Judge. Instead of going to the police when they find out something, they strike out on their own and get hurt in the process. In this process, Nina is able to reflect on her friendships with Rick and Aaron. Nina also struggles with the Christian life, wondering if God is there for her.
This is a very good story. It covers topics such as gambling addiction and homelessness. I would highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys suspenseful crime stories.
I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through the BookLook Blogger program. This is my honest review.
