I stayed up until 3 am to finish this. I have small children who don’t care that Mommy was reading all night. Was it worth it? Yes. Yes, it was. I probably shouldn’t have started reading the advance copy of the next book right away but what’s done is done.
Grace is a great main character. She’s not really the good person. The person who is trying to do the right thing? It is soooo easy to hate her. This book seriously played with my emotions once I realized that. I shouldn’t have been rooting for Grace to go through with her family’s plan.
This book is going on my reread shelf. If you read one book this week, make it Lies I Told. And if you do, or have read it already, let me know what you thought in the comments. :)
What if, after spending a lifetime deceiving everyone around you, you discovered the biggest lies were the ones you’ve told yourself?
Grace Fontaine has everything: beauty, money, confidence, and the perfect family.
But it’s all a lie.
Grace has been adopted into a family of thieves who con affluent people out of money, jewelry, art, and anything else of value. Grace has never had any difficulty pulling off a job, but when things start to go wrong on the Fontaines’ biggest heist yet, Grace finds herself breaking more and more of the rules designed to keep her from getting caught…including the most important one of all: never fall for your mark.
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.
