LoveReading View on Dangerous Lies

Strong-willed Stella is the key witness in a murder trial and has been placed under police protection. After being given a new identity and forced to cut all contact with friends from her former life, including her boyfriend, Stella is sent to live with Carmina, a straight-talking retired cop in small town Nebraska. Initially angry and obstinately against forging a new life, Stella can’t help but be drawn into the community. She gets a summer job in a diner, joins the local softball team and even accompanies Carmina to various church functions. And then there’s Chet. "Overpoweringly masculine yet incredibly sensitive", Stella can’t help falling for him. But alongside dealing with being stripped of her identity and all manner of emotional turmoil, Stella encounters further trouble in the form of bullyboy baseball hero, Trigger. As well as being a violent brute, Trigger also seems unnervingly familiar, and Stella is terrified that her cover is about to be blown.

This perfectly paced page-turner from the bestselling author of Hush, Hush is propelled by ever-escalating tension, and packed with heartfelt insights into love, loss, addiction and growing up.
