Lauren Holloway’s ex-fiance, Tucker Kane, is without an alibi when his ex-wife is murdered. Tucker claims to have been alone at a job site at the time, but he needs Lauren to lie for him so that he won’t become a suspect in the murder. She refuses; now as a prime suspect, Tucker disappears without a trace. Years later, she sees him at an antique fair, and worried that Lauren will reveal his carefully constructed life, he forces his into her hotel room and tells her that he’s trying to find evidence to clear his name. As Lauren tries to help Tucker, she questions her ability to judge character as she uncovers a labyrinth of deceit, putting her very life in danger.


Review: Lauren Holloway and Tucker Kane are building their life together when tragedy strikes. Tucker stumbles upon his ex-wife’s body at a job site and he becomes the prime suspect in her murder. Lauren continues to support Tucker even though the evidence points to Tucker as being guilty.

Long held secrets and lies from the past, rise to the surface to haunt Tucker. Can Lauren trust the man she thought she knew so well? As Tucker fights to clear his name, Lauren’s life quickly begins to unravel one piece at a time.

Lie for Me is one part romance and one part suspense with Christian undertones mixed throughout. This is a fast paced story that will keep the reader on their toes for most of the book. I enjoyed the tension that built between Lauren and Tucker as well as the supporting characters in the book. Lie for Me kept me intrigued due to the masterfully crafted twists and turns. The importance of honesty, compassion and faith are delicately
woven into elements of suspense and mystery.

Lie for Me is a perfect blend of everything I enjoy in a great book. I am looking forward to reading more from Karen Young.
