I was lucky enough to be able to meet Michelle Zink (and her children) last month. She lives not far from me and she had a book signing near where I live. I went, after much convincing from my fiance that he and the kids would be fine without me for 2 hours.
I was the only one there for a while. I got one of my favorite authors to myself for half an hour. One of the high points was when she pulled out an advance copy of her next book and gave it to me.
After a month of emergency rooms and doctors offices with my daughter, I finally was able to read the first book yesterday (even though I’ve been carrying it with me in my bag the entire month.) I finished it around 3 am yesterday and picked up Promises I Made. I finished it about 3 hours ago and I loved it as much, if not more than Lies I Told. I recommend that you read the first one and then pre-order this one. :)
In the thrilling sequel to Lies I Told, Grace learns that the most difficult thing about pulling off the perfect crime is living with the consequences.
Grace Fontaine was trained to carry out perfect crimes. But when a mistake was made the night her family tried to execute their biggest heist yet, her world fell apart. Now her brother is in jail, her mother has disappeared with the entire stolen fortune, and her father is determined to find a new mark, no matter the cost.
Haunted by the way she betrayed her friends—and Logan, the only boy she’s ever loved—as well as the role she played in her brother’s arrest, Grace decides she must return to the place every thief knows you should avoid: the scene of the crime.
Returning to Playa Hermosa as a wanted criminal is dangerous. But Grace has only one chance to make things right. To do it, she has to use everything she’s been taught about the art of the con to hunt down the very people who trained her: the only family she’s ever known.
Perfect for fans of Ally Carter, Cecily von Ziegesar, and Gail Carriger, this thrilling, high-stakes novel deftly explores the roles of identity and loyalty while offering a window into the world of the rich and fabulous.
