Description of Convenient Lies

She married her enemy…

When investigative journalist Reagan McAdams discovers her new husband is part of an international crime family, she flees Paris with their newborn and returns to her childhood home in New Hampshire, where she’ll gather her inheritance before she disappears forever. She’ll do whatever it takes to protect her son from his criminal father.

He never quit loving her.

Detective Brady Thomas discovers Rae is back and in trouble, and he plans to protect her and her son, whether she wants his help or not.

The death toll rises.

But when Rae’s husband starts killing people to smoke her out, she has to decide what—and who—she’ll have to sacrifice to save her son.

My review of Convenient Lies

I loved this book!

The action starts right on the first page. I immediately liked Rae and wanted her to be able to get away from Julien. I was pulling for her to be able to make a home in New Hampshire through out the whole book. I was afraid she was going to panic and run away and be on the run looking over her shoulder for the rest of her life.

The tension in this book is perfect. It is paced just right.

Quite a few twists I didn’t see coming. I love it when that happens!

If Romantic Suspense is your genre, then this is the book for you. It is a stand alone book. I can’t say if you need to read this one before you can read the next book since I haven’t read the next book, Twisted Lies, yet.

I can’t wait to get the other two books in the series.

Convenient Lies is on sale on Amazon Kindle for 99 cents right now. I hope you pick up a copy of this one. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.


About the author

Robin Patchen is an award winning multi-published author, but only because she can’t pursue her other dream.

If time and money were no object, Robin would spend her life traveling. Her goal is to visit every place in the entire world–twice. She longs to meet everybody and see everything and spread the good news of Christ. Alas, time is short and money is scarce, and her husband and three teenagers don’t want to traipse all around the world with her, so Robin does the next best thing: she writes. In the tales she creates, she can illustrate the unending grace of God through the power and magic of story.
