Lies Come True
Oh my goodness talk about a keep you on the edge of your seat thriller, this is one fast paced up and down, twist and turn, with no handlebar, hold your breath roller coaster ride of a book. WOW first book I have read by author Emerald O’Brien and I have found a new author to fan girl on. Now I am going to tell you right from the start this is the first book in her Avery Hart series and it leaves you wondering what is going to happen next. But man this story was so good I was up until 2am the first night that I picked it up to read I had to force myself to go to bed or I would have never gotten up the next day. You could easily read this in one sitting.
Avery Hart is a sweet but scared girl who was attacked when she was in high school and 10 years later she never really got over it even though she thought she had. But a girl with multiple locks on the door, living on the 5th floor isn’t really over it. But she has some really great friends who are always there for her. Her past soon comes back to haunt her though. And what she goes through OMG I was crying and screaming out for someone to help her.
And yes there is a good looking guy in this, okay a real cutie and an investigator who is on the case that Avery gets drawn into. When it seemed like no one else believed her, that everyone brushed off her story of her attack as bad prank. Noah Cotter believed. And with his help and mis-steps by Avery things begin to unravel and the past comes rushing back.
I literally was on the very edge of my seat reading this, what was going to happen next, would Avery be okay, would the miss attitude Fiona help and be okay. Will Avery and Noah get together. Well now I know what happens with 2 of the 3 LOL and Emerald is going to make me wait until the next installment of The Avery Hart series. Oh man…………
I happily give this book 5 stars without any hesitation.
