Book Description

Customers who like books by Nora Roberts, Carla Neggars, and Karen Robards will enjoy this romantic and suspenseful book from #1 NYT Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy.

Every family has secrets -- some too intriguing to resist ... some too dangerous to ignore ...

A novel about three remarkable families -- the fifty-year-old promise that once bound them together, the fiery betrayal that tore them apart, and the ancient bronze dragon that could destroy their future ...

Riley McAllister, Paige Hathaway, and Alyssa Chen come from very different worlds. Tough guy Riley has overcome the hard knocks of a working-class upbringing. Paige struggles to define her place as the heir to a famous antiques emporium. And Alyssa feels trapped by the restrictions of her family's old world attitudes. Now this unlikely trio of strangers must come together to follow an elusive trail through the streets of San Francisco -- from glittering Pacific Heights to colorful Chinatown to trendy south of Market. Each will have to make the impossible choice between romantic love and family loyalty, between sheltering lies and revealing truth. Once the door to the past is opened, there's no turning back ...

Reviews for RITA finalist Golden Lies ...

"Golden Lies is an absolute treasure, a fabulous, page-turning combination of romance and intrigue. Fans of Nora Roberts and Elizabeth Lowell will love Golden Lies." Kristin Hannah

"Freethy's smooth prose, spirited storytelling and engaging characters, are sure to send readers on a treasure hunt for the author's backlist books." Publishers Weekly

"A priceless Chinese artifact, an ancient curse, and a decades-old betrayal set the stage for this gripping story, which unites the grandchildren from three diverse, yet strangely linked, families and sweeps them from the rarified world of high-priced antiques to the fragrant alleys of San Francisco's Chinatown on an urgent quest to unravel the past's secrets. Multidimensional characters at all levels (especially the strong-willed hero and heroine), realistic and sometimes funny dialog, and a well-constructed plot that Freethy unwraps with such consummate skill that the conclusion is at once surprising and totally logical result in a rich and compelling tale." Library Journal

"The lives of three families collide and intersect in this wonderfully intriguing new drama by bestselling author Freethy." Romantic Times Magazine

A while ago I downloaded Ryans Return, as it was on the top 100 free books, & thoroughly enjoyed it. So, when I saw another Barbara Freethy book on the free list, I didnt hesitate. This book is equally as well written, the characters are well penned, & the story has plenty of suspense & romantic interest to keep you reading. Ive hardly got anything done the last couple of days, as I found it impossible to put the book down.

Looking for a light, easy read? This was easy to get into and easy to read only taking me a couple of hours. The main plot is basic with a few unexpected twists and turns along the way and I did find myself engaging with the characters. I will definitely look out for more by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars not just a quick read 10 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was lucky to get this whilst free but was hooked immediately and have no qualms of purchasing other books by this author. Golden Lies was romantic but also packed with a mystery which the author very cleverly dropped an occasional clue which was just enough to keep me hanging on and wanting to read more to find the ending. A good plot with twists and very little predictable except on the romance side. Recommend for a very juicy holiday read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance with a twist. 3 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Paige and Riley meet after a golden Chinese dragon is discovered hidden in an attic. A mystery slowly unravels throughout the pages and develops alongside their romance. There is mystery, betrayal, family feuds and romance weaving their way through San Francisco and Chinatown. I had read Ryan's return and enjoyed it so I searched for other books by this author. So glad I did because I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's not too heavy but the story and characters develop at a pace that keeps your interest piqued throughout.

Didn't expect too much being a free book......I couldn't put it down! The perfect balance of mystery, romance, drama, ect. Three families are tied together by a long ago secret, it is slowly unraveled and the families are pulled together again, the lies are discovered and the truth comes out, bringing with it romance and betrayal. I would definitely recommend this, a great beach book!

Another brilliant book by Barbara Freethy. Its a love story and a mystery, Paige is a Hathaway of Hathaway Stores, and Ryan and his Nan take a priceless Dragon into their store to be valued, Ryan and nan leave the Dragon at Hathaways store to be valued, but where is it??? David, Paiges father decides to take it to China Town, but ends up in hospital fighting for his life, but where is the Dragon and why did he go to China Town?.This is the start of the love story and a mystery,the mystery keeps going to the end of the story. This is a great book that you wont be able to put down, a good bedtime read, but don't expect to go to sleep early.
