From the New York Times bestselling author of the Dark Protectors series comes a sexy romantic suspense about a woman determined to solve her sister's murder and the only man she can trust with long-buried family secrets.

Revenge. It's the only thing that will help Anya Best sleep at night. The serial killer who murdered her sister is on the loose, and Anya will stop at nothing to put him behind bars -- even use herself as bait to lure him out of hiding. But she can't do this alone.

Private investigator Heath Jones's job is to bring bastards to justice. This time it's personal. He knew the Copper Killer's latest victim so when her sister asks for his help, he's all in. But when Anya uses the media to taunt the killer, she exposes Heath's identity, putting them both in jeopardy. Now, secrets buried long ago are coming to light and the forces determined to destroy him are watching Heath's every move, waiting to exact their own revenge. And they'll use anything and anyone to get to Heath.

Why did I add Lethal Lies to my bookshelf?

I downloaded this book from NetGalley years ago. I read and enjoyed the first book in the series but never seemed to be able to fit the other two books into my reading schedule. Last year, I listened to the 3 books in Zanetti’s Sin Brothers series and enjoyed it so much I decided to do the same thing with the Blood Brothers series this year. I bought the audiobooks last week and am ready to get started sometime next month. It feels so good to finally mark some of these books off of my tbr list.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?

  1. Ooh, yours looks good. I do enjoy romantic suspense.

    Mine is a book I’ve had since 2015, but I also have (and have viewed) the movie a few times. Now I really must read the book.

  2. I remember loving both the Sins Brothers and this series. Great idea to get the audios and knock off some oldies from your arc stack.

  3. I have listened to audiobooks for past due ARCs. This sounds like it will be good for you, given your history with the author

  4. Oh, I think you’ll enjoy this one. I had such a great time with both of those series. I would love to have more books set in this world, but I don’t know if that will happen. She does a great job ending the series. Have a wonderful new year.

  5. I absolutely adored this book here and I hope you actually pick it up here. I couldn’t put this one down, it was one of my top suspense reads of the year.

    I hope that you love it.
