Taken from B&N: “On the surface, Emily Meckler leads the perfect life. She has three best friends, two loving parents, and the ideal setup at the Connecticut prep school where her father is the headmaster. Then the enigmatic Del Sugar enters her life, and Emily is immediately swept away-but her passionate relationship with Del is just the first of many things that aren’t quite what they seem in Emily’s life. As the lies she’s been told start to unravel, Emily must set out to discover the truth, a journey that will lead her to question everything she thought she knew.”
When I read Breathless earlier this year, I knew I had to read Where the Truth Lies. Usually I dislike books where characters fall into a fast-paced romance, I don’t HATE them, I just don’t find them realistic. Something about the passion and the way it was written, I was riveted.
At first everything in the book seems completely perfect. With an exception of Emily’s dreams, but that’s not something controlled, so I kind of overlooked it. When I say everything, I do mean everything…her friends, her school, her parents…Even Del was perfect with a touch of bad-boy gleaming.
As the story unfolds, small secrets and actions from the characters, things aren’t so perfect and shiny. I kept finding myself wanting to know more and more. The mystery of it all kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat. I won’t get into details as to what happens to each character (or their past secrets), because I hate spoilers, but I will say Jessica Warman weaves an amazing page-turner. If you haven’t checked out any of her books, definitely do so!
Thanks to Bloomsbury USA/Walker Books for providing me with a free copy of Where The Truth Lies for review.
