Orphaned as a child in Russia, boat captain Sasha Petrov has spent most of her life adrift, anchored by only her loving foster family. So when they beg her to return to the family marina in Safe Harbor, Florida, for Mama Rosa’s sixtieth birthday, Sasha complies, hoping to put the past behind her. But Mama Rosa has other plans: she wants her three foster daughters to find Tony, the biological son who disappeared twenty years earlier.
Sasha agrees to try, but that’s easier said than done when bad boy Jesse Claybourne shows up, reigniting an old attraction. Back in Safe Harbor on a quest of his own, Jesse gets tangled up in Sasha’s search, and soon the two are close to uncovering an old town secret that some will stop at nothing to protect.
When Sasha’s dog and Jesse are attacked, they realize the past is hiding something more sinister than they ever imagined. Can they expose the truth without destroying Sasha’s family and breaking each other’s hearts, or are they sailing against the wind?
BeckySW MIAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Suspense Hangs Heavy Like Dense FogMay 27, 2016BeckySW MIAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Just having finished Connie Mann's Tangled Lies, I am sitting in my chair and waiting for my racing heart to still. This story is about water and a woman captain, Sasha,whose heart is calmed by being on the water. However, there is nothing calm or boring about this novel. Sasha finally returns home to her foster parents' to celebrate her mother's birthday, only to discover her mother has cancer. Plus her folks have a new foster daughter, Blaze, as prickly as Sasha once was.
To add to Sasha's confusion is the return of an old friend, Jesse, whom the town has rejected because of his past. Together, the two try to solve the mystery of Sasha's missing brother Tony, who disappeared as a toddler. Can they trust each other enough to open up and work together or will feelings and regrets get in the way?
Connie had me flipping pages as fast as I could to see why the town was so unhappy over Jesse's return and why there were so many secrets surrounding Tony's disappearance. The suspense hangs palpable over the novel like a dense fog that refuses to clear until the very end. A satisfying, clean romance is sprinkled throughout, but it is the unexpected waves of action, the subterfuge, and the totally shocking conclusion that makes this tome a favorite!!
I gratefully received an ARC copy of this ebook both from the author and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Reunited with her high school crush, Jesse, who has also returned home, inheriting his late aunts boat and house, Sasha determines to solve a decades old mystery.

Connie Mann skillfully weaves a web of secrets, lies, and escalating danger that kept me in a state of anxiety. I simply had to know what was going to happen next.
Great pacing, action, and a love story that tugs on the heartstrings, I really wanted these two damaged souls to have a happy ending! And how cool to find a story with a female boat captain!

And after finishing this one, Tangled Lies, I was not disappointed.
Sasha Petrov, foster daughter of Sal and Mama Rosa, goes home to Florida after hearing Mama Rosa has cancer and not doing well. She is surprised when she is not welcomed by nearly everyone in town. She also sees that a high school friend, Jesse Claybourne, is back in town and he is also very unwelcome.
Mama Rosa gives Sasha a task to do and from then on, being unwelcome is just a drop in the bucket. People want her and Jesse both dead. What is going on? It seems as if the entire town is keeping a secret that folks will kill to keep secret.
Connie Mann has created wonderful characters, a great setting and a truly super mystery. Two, actually. I enjoyed every single minute, racing to finish because I just HAD to know the ending of the mystery! I recommend this book and I don't think you'll be disappointed.
