Synopsis: A woman with a haunted past…
An agent with a dangerous secret…
A madman with a twisted sense of revenge…
While honing her gifts as a cold-case consultant with the Dublin Garda, Liv Sullivan uncovers a personal connection to the spirits who seek her help. Faced with a chance to bring peace to the living, rather than the dead, Liv can’t resist. Even if it means working alongside the man who broke her heart.
Special Agent Ridge McCaffrey chose duty over desire, a mistake that nearly ended Liv Sullivan’s life. So, when a missing person’s investigation exposes a link to Liv, Ridge vows to bring her home, hoping for a second chance with the Bureau’s most valuable asset.
As they rekindle their relationship, an enemy from Ridge’s past looms dangerously close. And when Ridge’s sister is abducted, Liv makes the ultimate sacrifice, placing herself in the crosshairs between a corrupt psychic intelligence operation and an ex-agent with a score to settle.
Can Liv stop a killer before death becomes her only escape?
Inherent Lies is the compelling second book in the Blood Secrets psychological suspense series. If you like flawed heroines and complex plots laced with a hint of romance, then you’ll love this second installment of Alicia Anthony’s award-winning thriller. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: Thanks so much to Drury Lane Books for providing me with a free copy for honest review.
What a thrilling ride! I was really captivated by the story. It was almost non-stop from page one. Inherent Lies was a great book to get lost in. I do think you need to read the first book before jumping into this sequel. That way you'll know who people are, relationships, background stuff. The usual reasons for reading the first book in a series before continuing with the rest.
I really enjoy following Liv's journey. She goes through a lot and I'm always rooting for her. There is so much danger in her life. It's thrilling, but I also worry about her.
I also really enjoyed the romance. I love having some sort of romance in most of the books I read. When two people are right for each other, it's just meant to be. So Ridge McCaffrey is great.
I'm also a fan of the setting of this story. And the fact that Liv is a cold-case consultant. It's such an interesting occupation.
I'm really glad I got to continue with the Blood Secrets Series. Inherent Lies was a really fun book to lose myself in. I was able to take my mind of the world for a little while. I can't wait to see how the series continues.
