BethErinILAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Purposeful and inspiring!June 18, 2019BethErinILAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Authentic characters and an important message of mental health awareness and compassion are just the tip of the iceberg in this solid debut novel! Walters nails the small town dynamics and family drama in this instantly engaging law enforcement romantic suspense.
Charlie Lynch is a small town girl's dream come true. He's every kind of hero all wrapped up in one, brave enough to serve our country and follow what he believes is God's will for his life. chivalrous and patient, loyal, devoted, and great with kids and pets. I think we can all agree that Charlie is a hands-down, no doubt about it, keeper.
Lane Kent needs a Charlie in her life, a friend, a protector, a man willing to listen and encourage. Her inner turmoil and rocky family relationships make meaningful friendships worth more than gold. Fiction needs more heroines like Lane, the gift of her perspective and experiences encourages us to mature in empathy.
Winsome secondary characters like Ms. Byrdie, five-year-old Noah, and even Bane the Terror Terrier round out the story with warmth, humor, and sentimental moments. I highly recommend this purposeful, inspiring, and action-packed story! Fans of Dani Pettrey and Lynette Eason will especially enjoy the style and pacing of Living Lies.

jyoung3 Stars Out Of 5mehJune 17, 2019jyoungQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3Let's start from the cover. We all know we shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but look at that cover! It's so captivating. I love the misty green look. It makes me want to find out what's inside. The start of the book is great. I want to know more. I'm drawn in to the mystery. But then sadly, I quickly began to loose interest. I did love the inclusion of depression. This is a little talked about topic in Christian fiction but it is a huge problem in the lives of many Christians. We don't talk about it enough. I'm glad the author chose to include it in her story. But, I don't want that to define a person the entire story. I felt like Lane was more than her depression but I didn't know much else. I wanted a deeper understanding of this character. I was left wanting. And there was something about her name. It would get lost in the story and I would forget that it was her name. I would find myself thinking, "Wait? Who is this Lane person?" I became more easily distracted. The details were nicely written but kind of irrelevant. I found they detracted from the central story. I had a hard time floating from page to page. I had to go back and reread quite a bit. Charlie's character was really likable. I feel like his character had more depth. Unfortunately that wasn't enough for me. I couldn't sink into this story and get carried away. I was disappointed by that because typically this genre is one where I can sit down and not get up til the book is done. This was not the case for this book, sad to say. I'm interested to read future books by this author. This just wasn't one for me. I gave it 3 stars.
I received a copy of this book from Revell. I was in no way required to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
