Book Review of Living Lies by Natalie Walters

Living Lies (Harbored Secrets #1)

About: In the little town of Walton, Georgia, everybody knows your name–but no one knows your secret. At least that’s what Lane Kent is counting on when she returns to her hometown with her five-year-old son. Dangerously depressed after the death of her husband, Lane is looking for hope. What she finds instead is a dead body.

Lane must work with Walton’s newest deputy, Charlie Lynch, to uncover the truth behind the murder. But when that truth hits too close to home, she’ll have to decide if saving the life of another is worth the cost of revealing her darkest secret.

Debut novelist Natalie Walters pulls you to the edge of your seat on the first page and keeps you there until the last in this riveting story that will have you believing no one is defined by their past.

My Review:

Genre: Suspense, romance, Christian fiction.

My Rating: 5 stars.

My Recommendation: 16 up, warnings below.

My Favorite Character/s: It was so hard to read Lane’s story but she was a character that you could see was struggling with something and needed help. I loved how her character changed by the end of the story.

My Verse for Lane is Matthew 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. (King James Version.)

And Charlie with little Noah was so so so so adorable!

My Thoughts: This debut was AMAZING . . . I enjoy suspense and this may have been one of my favorite involving police officers. Yes, there was a lot of hard content but there was a lot of darkness and hurt. The suspense was wonderful and it didn’t drag, it kept up with a good pace throughout the whole novel. It was a big plus that Vets were helped some and that it showed how hard it is for men to return home after war.

Warnings: There is a murder . . . Think a Hallmark movie that’s real. A character suffers from depression and attempts to kill themself. A character is shot and there are mentions of drugs/drinking. An older lady makes a joke about ‘enjoying the view’ when a guy rushes to help someone while preparing for the day and he was shirtless. (Surprisingly, slightly funny but still, I needed to mention it.)

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review and am truly happy to provide it — all the thoughts are my own.
