"Tell me lies" has all the essential elements, the characters aren't as well developed as "Temptation" but I think it's a funnier book. Its heroine is likable, but less attatching and couragous than Ms Cruise's other female characters. CL the hero, is great, as cool as his car, I would have just liked to have seen more of the drama from his point of view. I would have also loved to get to know the secondary characters a bit more. That said, I'll happily pay a visit again (and again and again) to small town USA, as long as its Ms Cruise who'll be showing me around.
The book is set in a small town in the US where everyone knows everyone. The main character is the kind that half the town want to be and the other half hate (but secretly want to be). She is a teacher in the local school, married to prospective mayor, mother to an adorable daughter and lives her life trying her best not to upset anyone or to become the gossip of the town.
All this changes when she finds another womans underwear in her husbands car and a one night stand from her schooldays turns up - all in the same day! This sends her life into turmoil, leading to x number of life changing events and great sex scenes as only Cruise can write.
It may be slightly predictable, but this does not in anyway deter me from wanting to read all of Cruise`s book, and I plan to do so very soon
Although I love the dialogue and the jokes I think the plots of the books are a bit samey - but they are really funny so still worth a look.
Any women who think their lives are over by 38 should read this book.
