I was reluctant to buy this book at first, but because I had read other books written by this writer so I gave the book ago and I didn't regret it. The story was brilliant and the characters believable and a brilliant story line

too wordy 14 Aug. 2005
By A. Rowley - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was great from about page 277 until the end. I couldn't put it down. It was suspenseful and surprising. However, the beginning is slow. I noticed this before from this author that she is very descriptive, almost too much. I found myself skipping over huge chunks of needless information. For instance, there is no reason to describe each building of a town, who owns it or works there and what relevance they had to the character as that person drives down the road unless those people matter, but they don't. Dialog is interupted with meanless descriptions of what the character is doing second by second, like mixing the coffee, and each sip they take. It just gets so boring and breaks up too much of the suspense and plot.

On the other hand, the story is fairly basic, but does build at the end to a nice reveal. Not much of a romantic suspense, but this author is fairly new, so perhaps there is hope. She has a great deal of potential, if she would just condense her descriptions down a little.

I wish I could have given it more stars, but except for the last third of the book, it just did nothing for me. I forced myself to keep reading, because I am familiar with this author's works and I did have high hopes. I think I will give her a few years to fine tune her writing and try back again. In my opinion though, I have now bought two of her books based on viewer reviews and am disappointed that I spent the money.

exhilarating romantic suspense 5 Mar. 2005
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Popular author Faith Pelletier has not been able to write since her spouse died eighteen months ago. Though pressured to produce her next novel and having spent the advance on her husband's medical bills, Faith drops everything when she learns Chelsea, her best friend since childhood, died in what appears to have been a suicidal drive into the Androscoggin River. Worried about Chelsea's daughter fifteen years old Jessie, Faith heads to River City, Maine to attend the funeral and bring the teen back with her to New York.

Though ruled a suicide, Faith believes otherwise because she knows how much Chelsea loved Jessie. Police Chief Ty Savage also has doubts, but has not found one iota of evidence to prove murder occurred. Urged on by the River City Gazette where Chelsea worked as a reporter, Faith tries to track her friend's last unfinished story, but soon finds herself in deep trouble from a killer who wants his actions and her buried along side of Chelsea.

LETHAL LIES is an exhilarating romantic suspense that grips the audience as they go on the road with Faith who believes Chelsea's former husband drugged and killed her. The story line never slows down from that stunning start as Faith picks up the gauntlet and continues the inquiries over the fears of Ty, who loves her. Fans will appreciate this strong Maine thriller filled with fantastic misdirection and clever red herrings.

Lethal Lies 4 Mar. 2005
By AK - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
After a fatal gamble ends Chelsea Logan's investigation and life, her cousin, Faith is called back to the "hick" town in which they both grew up, ostensibly to take over the care of Chelsea's daughter, Jessie. However, the loose ends Chelsea left in the air demand that she do more. Knowing her cousin would not kill herself, Faith searches for the truth behind Chelsea's death, which places her in the same danger her kinswoman was in before her murder. Racism, drugs, and scandal form a web of danger that entangles not only Faith, but Jessie and police chief, Ty Savage, a man Faith has loved on some level for decades.

**** From beginning to end, this suspense filled book will draw you in, forcing you to race to the conclusion and the surprise ending. Well developed, complex characterization enhances a seamless plot; things we can rely on from this author. ****

Light on romance; great suspense! 21 Aug. 2006
By Tracy Vest - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Reporter Chelsea Logan is about to file the story that could catapult her from her small Maine town to a big city paper - she just wants to go over what she has found out with Serenity's chief of police, Ty Savage. But she never makes it to the police station, as she is drives into the river, and townspeople assume it is a suicide. Ty does not think so since though Chelsea had a lot of problems, she was devoted to her teenage daughter, Jessie. Chelsea's will left custody of Jessie to her cousin Faith Pelletier. But the evidence does not prove otherwise.

Faith left Serenity after high school graduation and never looked back. Still nursing a broken heart eleven months after burying her terminally ill husband Ben, the last thing she needs in her life is to return to the town that brings back so many bad memories - many of which include her best friend and love of her life, Ty - who betrayed her by sleeping with Chelsea. When Faith does return to Serenity it is with the intention of leaving as soon as the funeral. But all is not what it appears, and it looks as though racism and a deadly drug cartel might have taken up residence in the small river town. As Faith and Ty investigate the evil doings, both try to refrain from giving into their deepening feelings for each other.

Breton has created a tense and riveting drama that manages to plop a couple surprises on jaded readers who think they know what is coming next.

I love books where I don't have to wait for chapter after chapter to get to a good part, and LETHAL LIES definitely delivers to my tastes. Chapter one starts off with a bang, and the action, adventure, suspense, mystery, and passion never slow down after that.

Investigative reporter Chelsea Logan is finally ready to file the story of a lifetime. Life in Serenity, Maine, has always seemed quiet and calm to outsiders, the kind of small town where anyone and everyone would love to raise their family. Hadn't she moved back to accept a job at the local paper, living in the house she'd grown up in, believing that she'd finally found the right place for herself and her fifteen-year-old daughter, Jessie? Chelsea soon learns, though, that all is not what it seems in Serenity, and she's finally ready to go to the Chief of Police, Ty Savage, with her allegations before her story hits the paper.

Her middle-of-the-night trip never reaches fulfillment, however, when Chelsea plunges off of a deserted road and into the river below. All too quickly, Chelsea Logan and her unfiled story are history-just the way that a certain someone has planned it. Since she never got to Ty, never had her story on the front page of the River City Gazette, person or persons unknown in Serenity are now breathing easier.

Easier, that is, until Faith Pelletier returns to town. Chelsea's cousin and best friend, Faith uses the need to take care of Jessie as her reason to return to the hometown that she swore never to step foot in again. But she knows the truth-she doesn't believe that Chelsea's death was a suicide, and there are too many unanswered questions surrounding not only her friend and cousin's death, but the circumstances surrounding it. What exactly was Chelsea doing driving down a dark and deserted road after midnight? Who was she going to see, and why?

As the placid calm of Serenity, Maine, is shattered by a world of violence, drugs, and scrupulous men and women, Faith knows that she's on to something-something, some reason, that contributed to her cousin's death.

With Ty Savage, a man that she's always secretly been a little in love with, the only one to turn to with her suspicions, Faith realizes that she might be in danger, not to mention Chelsea's daughter, Jessie. As secrets are revealed, as passions build, as the danger in this once-peaceful small town comes to a head, LETHAL LIES will have you on the edge of your seat.

Ms. Breton has written a winning romantic suspense story with a twisting, turning story line and truly remarkable characters. With LETHAL LIES, you'll have a hard time guessing what will happen next, and that is one sign of a great mystery story.
