Book Description

April 2004

Thirteen years ago in Russia, Alexandra Jane Baker's father jumped out of a window after being accused of embezzlement. But Alex knows the truth - her father was murdered, and she will do anything to avenge his death.

Now she is a world-renowned businesswoman, working on a very public oil deal in small Sokanan, New York. In private, she is pursuing her vendetta against Miki Petrov, the man she blames for her father's death. But the murder of Luka Kole, the man who spirited her away from both Russia and her father's enemies all those years ago, brings Detective Hank Bonner to her doorstep.

Alex acts cold and controlled around Hank, but he knows there is more to her than meets the eye. As he gets closer and closer to Alex's secret, their shared personal sorrow turns to attraction and then love. Soon they are evading Russian strongmen, hatching plans with the CIA, and setting a life-threatening trap to ensnare Petrov with Alex as bait...

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 14 Nov 2009
I bought this book, as I needed to discover a new author having read all of my favourite authors books. I had nothing else to read and this was the only reason I finished the book. The characters were completely unbelievable, it was totally predictable and tediously boring. I will not be trying any more of this authors books. I have now decided not to beleive all the good reviews as maybe the reviewers have not read anything better. AWFUL AWFUL BOOK!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good. Not great. 30 Oct 2004
By Helina Y. - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I actually bought this book by accident, mistaking it for another with a same title. I don't regret buying it, as it was an enjoyable read. The story was fast paced, and kept me reading through all the way. The author is also very talented at actually creating the general atmosphere surrounding the whole story. You can feel the loneliness that Alex has had to live through, the desperation she felt after her protector/ friend is murdered. But to me, the best thing is that there is an actual sense of danger present: not just the 'I don't feel safe, so hold me' kind of fluff.

The thing that made me give this book 4 stars instead of 5 is the general lack of affection and passion between Hank and Alex. You can see it through the dialogue and what passes between them through the book, but it's pretty bland otherwise. No hot blooded romance here, just carefully phrased words, thoughts and actions that show they are attracted and care deeply about each other. In a way, it's a very sweet romance.

This book is good, enjoyable and easy to read but it's not great or a favourite for keeps or anything. Hope this helps some.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good one from Annie Solomon. 28 Mar 2004
By mahikahn - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hank Bonner is a cop in Sokanan, a small town in the Hudson Valley. He's two weeks from retiring so he can care for his niece, nephew and the family apple farm. His sister and her husband died in a tragic incident that Hank feels he should have been able to prevent.
Alex Baker is a wealthy businesswoman negotiating a joint Russian and American venture which will bring prosperity back to Sokanan.
When a man is murdered and Hank begins to investigate, the trail leads him to Alex. Alex has her own agenda which involves murder, betrayal, deceit and revenge and which puts everyone close to her in danger.
The only thing I didn't care for was Alex using her connections with grateful town officials to stop Hank from doing his job. I realize she was trying to keep him from getting hurt. However, by giving him insufficient information she ended up putting everyone is a dangerous position.
This was a good book with a fast moving plot and interesting, well-developed characters. I would definitely recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting And Good Story! 8 Feb 2005
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Solomon's "Tell Me No Lies" is a story within a story and one that was very good. She has taken a real life event and worked it to her advantage. The reader is than treated to a Russian mystery that has to this day not yet been solved.

Alexsandra Jane Baker has one goal in life. That is to see her father's honor restored. In order to do that she plays a deadly game of cat and mouse with a former KGB agent turned corporate exec. Things are going well and until a local man is killed and what should have been a open and shut case of robbery turned bad becomes a whole lot more when Detective Hank Bonner enters the picture.

Hank is getting to retire from police work in order to take care of his family obligation. He just wants to get on with his life. What he doesn't want in the new murder case that he was just handed. Especially when it comes with an additional challenge in the form of Alexsandera Jane Baker. She is keeping a secret and he knows that it will be a key part in his murder investigation. Will she ever trust him enough to tell him what he needs to know before more bodies turn up dead?

There is a secondary storyline involving Hank and his niece and nephew is also very good and goes a long way to helping flesh out Hank's character. This is very good book and I would have given it a higher rating but at times Ms. Solomon bogged down the read with so much detail. As a result this reader found herself being pulled out of a situation in order to focus on details that may not have been that important. Overall this was a fast paced read that I have no problems recommending.

Annie Solomon has done it again! This is the best yet. She keeps you interested in the characters, rooting for them and helping us find a little bit of ourselves in each of them. What better place for a mystery than an orchard that is sweet with the scents of fresh fruit and hidden by the shadows of the trees. You will become an Annie Solomon fan with this, her newest book, Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Based on true life unsolved Russian mystery 24 Jun 2006
By Patricia Ann - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is another romantic suspense novel. It involves a 13 year old suicide-or was it a suicide? A beautiful, wealthy woman with lots of secrets, a cop who is trying to raise his orphaned niece and nephew are just a few of the characters that keep you turning the pages.

This book is based on an unsolved Russian mystery. A fast read perfect for a plane or the beach or poolside.
