Product Description

About the Author

Stephie Smith was born in Parkersburg, West Virginia, the fifth of six girls. Early years were spent making mischief and, in general, driving her parents crazy while the family migrated between Ohio, West Virginia, and Florida. In fact, her family moved so often--18 times before Stephie finished sixth grade--that some people suspected they were running from the law.

Stephie left home at 14, finished high school at 16, and joined the Air Force at 18, graduating with honors from the USAF Schools of Electronics and Instrumentation. After attending several colleges and universities around the country (switching majors from Chemistry to Art to English to Psychology but never figuring out what she wanted to be when she grew up), she followed her sisters to east central Florida and settled there. She remains there today writing historical romance, humorous women's fiction, and computer how-to books. You can contact her through her website www.StephieSmith.com. She loves to hear from readers.

I had really enjoyed Ms Smiths historical romance Duke of Deception and was looking forward to the next, however, this doesn’t appear to be available on Kindle yet but I will watch out for it. I thought in the meantime I would read one of her contemporary works instead.

I much prefer historical romance and prefer a third person narrative. Rules of Lying is written in the first person and if you don’t mind that then you will find yourself being amused and frustrated by the heroine, Jane, who I feel is a much more intelligent lady than as she was sometimes portrayed.

I felt the stories which were there to give the reader a feel for the relationships between the characters became a little long at times.

That said, if you enjoy a murder mystery, a couple of hunky heroes and a first person narrative, give it a try. For myself I feel I prefer to stick to looking out for more of Ms Smiths historical work.

I wasn't sure there was a mystery for the first half (there is), but the laughs and characters kept me from putting the book down. Has me looking at my own family aggravations with humor now.

Absolutely, unequivocably LOVED it. Hopefully the first of a very long series:) Had me laughing uncontrollably and reading out loud to my co-workers. I am so glad that my Kindle has opened my reading horizons to embrace many new authors!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next one 18 Oct. 2012
By Cat Lady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was so funny I couldn't stop reading it. I really liked Jane Dough. Her outlook on life felt real and funny. Sometimes she's glum, sometimes cynical, but usually she's loving, and often hilarious. I went back and forth between wanting her to end up with Hank and then Brian. The actual resolution of this problem was better than what I could think of and opens up a lot of possibilities for future books. I also liked the way Jane grew to like herself or maybe it was just that she learned to accept herself, that nobody's perfect and they don't need to be. I'm looking forward to more books in the series, not just to see what happens with Hank and Bryan, but also to see what happens with her family relationships, especially the mother who is a really fun character.

5.0 out of 5 stars More, please. 17 Oct. 2012
By savialeigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Rules of Lying is highly amusing, with well drawn characters that are easy to like.Other than the fact that Jane Dough is spunkier, this is a character I can really identify with. The villains are subtly villainous, or mildly unlikeable, mostly in ways you can't quite pinpoint until after the fact. This book made me laugh, it made me dream, it made me cry (just a little) and made me take a look at myself. A little bit mystery, a little bit romance, a little bit chic-lit, Rules of Lying is a lot of entertainment. I always doubt books that only have stellar revues, but every now and then one earns them. This book did. Worth Reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written! 28 Nov. 2012
By K. Pope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have a bad habit of highlighting all of the grammatical and spelling errors in the indie books that I read. I am so excited to share that the only highlights within Rules of Lying are the witty and noteworthy statements of the main character, Jane Dough. This book is extremely well written. I was impressed by the vocabulary as well as the writing skill. The characters were well developed and relatable. I disagree with another reviewer who described the main character as "dumb as a post". I found her to be likable and quite entertaining. There were a few moments where I actually laughed aloud while reading. The story line was consistent and skillful. It was thorough while not being overly descriptive or verbose. I genuinely enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more novels about Jane Dough and well as more novels by Stephie Smith. Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, Love it! 12 Nov. 2012
By Tj - Published on Amazon.com

From her relationships with her family, to the alligator in the swamp in her backyard, to the new neighbour, the trial husband, her cat.... this book was so funny and a real laugh out-loud. The scene at the Doctor's surgery had me in stitches!
Her grandmother is beautiful and everyone needs unconditional love and support like that.
The ending surprised me, didn't see that twist coming.

I'd read this again, and pass it on to friends to read too.
