The Truth About Lies (The Truth Duet, #1)
Truth: From over a thousand miles away, I watched on the screen of my phone as two men murdered my wife. And I was helpless to save her.
Consumed by hate and rage, I spent four years running from my memories.
Until a shattered woman gave me a reason to stop.
Cora lived in a nightmare, but through sheer force of will, she’d turned it into something beautiful. She had a smile that could pierce the darkest soul. And with one glance, she shredded mine.
Lie: I was only there for a fresh start.
Lie: I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
Lie: There was nothing I could do to save her, either.
But that’s the thing about lies—you never know who to believe.

I love this author, so honestly, I would have read this book regardless of what the story turned out to be. By about 20% in to this one, I thought.....ehhh...I know how this is going to go....I'll just finish it out to say that I have read it. Not my favorite, but whatever. Still love the author. By 50% in I was so incredible wrong about my guess, it was embarrassing but also so exciting. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I have never been so happy to be wrong in my life!
Lots of characters to try and sort through. The main leads are Cora and Penn. But without giving anything away, the rest of the characters all play vital roles. It's worth a re-read now that I 'm finished, just to see the little clues I may have missed. Twists, turns, action, heartbreak and some sweet romance, and a great sense of humor sprinkled in. You don't know what you think you know, that is for sure.
This is book 1 of a duet. In a sense it ends, but you will want to know the rest of the story. Book 2 comes out shortly after the first so readers won't have to wait long for more of Cora's story.
Fantastic, simply because it surprised me and kept me riveted until the very end. Unique story.

Pre-order from Amazon
Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.
Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.
She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
