Truth Be Told

It’s a day in the life of Jane Ryland. Siting outside of a family home, looking for details for a story on foreclosed homes. What should just be a run of the mill ordinary day- a day where Jane gets a few photos, some video, and another sad story to add to her overall piece of foreclosed homes suddenly gets a lot more interesting. What made it more interesting?

A dead body.

Yep, a dead body always adds interesting to the story- and when Jane sees Jake- she knows that this dead body is more than just a dead body.

Jake, finding out about the dead body, has to wonder why is there a dead body in an empty house. But, that is not his only question. A man has confessed to the Lilac Sunday killing. With the anniversary of Lilac Sunday fast approaching- Jake wants to know all the details of this case- the case that went unsolved by his grandfather.

Jane and Jake soon find themselves working on two cases- Jane with the foreclosed home story and Jake with the Lilac Sunday confession- and both finding out clues that could help the other. Can Jane and Jake slow down enough to help each other- or is this the crux of their potential relationship problem- not being able to fully reveal everything they know because of their chosen professions?

As Jane gets deeper into the story of the foreclosed homes- her investigative reporter instincts are screaming that there is more than meets the eye to this story-the question is- will she figure out all the pieces to the story? And Jake- will he be able to solve the Lilac Sunday Murders- or will this case go unsolved for another Brogan man?


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I have loved some Hank Phillippi Ryan ever since I read THE WRONG GIRL. Hank’s style of writing just creates tension in the suspense/mystery storyline she loves to create- and I dig that. It makes for fast turning, got to know what happens next reading. TRUTH BE TOLD is told in the same style- which just works!

But the other magic of the Jane Ryland series is the relationship between Jane and Jake. The flirting. The longing looks. The chemistry. The sizzle. Ooh la la…. They are hotness personified.

Looking for a good mystery with characters you can care about and root for? Give TRUTH BE TOLD a try!

  1. My (first of two) copies just arrived! One to read, one to give away. Hank’s books are such inside looks at a world you both do and don’t want to enter. Thanks for whetting my appetite…

    • WHOO! I love me some Hank. She is fab. And her characters- well, Jake is #literarycrush-worthy. YUM. 😉 And Jane is so strong- I dig strong female characters! I can’t wait to hear what you think!
