Review by Suze
Stella is new in Thunder Basin. She's there to live with Carmina, a retired cop. Stella's name isn't really Stella, she's in a witness protection program. She's a city girl who was forced to move to the country and now she's stuck there. The only good thing about her move is Chet, the boy next door who's welcoming and friendly. Stella needs to adjust and she has to do it quickly. She has to work while she never had a job, she has to follow the rules while at home she could do what she wanted and there's hardly any luxury. Those are things she can get used to, but will she ever stop looking over her shoulder and should she or is the danger still nearby?
Dangerous Lies is a gripping read about a girl who's had a hard life. Stella didn't have a safe and loving home and she's used to doing everything on her own. Thunder Basin is a big adjustment, but she's tough and she tries. I liked that about her. She has some big secrets and she isn't supposed to tell anyone about them. I kept wanting to know more and couldn't stop reading until I found out what they were. I love a good book about secrets and this is definitely a great one.
There's a lot of chemistry between Stella and Chet, but she isn't looking for someone new. She doesn't want to give up her past entirely, it's really hard for her to do that. I felt bad for her, but also wanted her to see sense. It's always a good sign when I feel something like that while reading a book. Everything was exactly as it should be and I enjoyed reading Dangerous Lies very much. I think Becca Fitzpatrick has written another fascinating, fast paced and thrilling story.
