Another thrilling read from the queen of YA smoulder, Becca Fitzpatrick. If you enjoyed Hush, Hush, you'll love Dangerous Lies. . .
Stella Gordon's life is a lie.
She does not belong in Thunder Basin, Nebraska. As the key witness in a murder trial, Stella is under witness protection, living a life she doesn't want.
No one can know who she really is. Not even Chet Falconer, her hot, enigmatic neighbour. But against her better judgement, Stella finds herself falling under Chet's spell . . .
A storm is brewing. Is Stella really safe in Thunder Basin? And will Chet be her shelter, or her downfall . . . ?
Praise for Becca Fitzpatrick:
'A rollercoater of twists and turns . . . a great, new and different novel' Sunday Express
'The perfect escape into fantasy and a love that can break all boundaries' Sugarscape
After 17-year-old Stella walks in on a murder, she moves from Philadelphia to rural Nebraska as part of the witness protection program. Leaving behind her boyfriend and drug-addicted mother, Stella tries to eke out a new life under the watchful eye of a retired cop. Over time, she takes a liking to the simple life and her new friend Chet, just as her past threatens to catch up to her. Fitzpatrick's (Black Ice) brand of page-turning, plot-twisting suspense is conspicuously absent in a narrative that focuses more on Stella's emotional turmoil than the threat of being hunted down. That may be why the climax feels more like a pit stop on the way to a happy ending. It's inevitable that Stella will have to face her past, but a revelation regarding the depth of her lies is lackluster and the resolution too tidy. Essentially a feel-good romance masquerading as a thriller, with an unlikely ending in which the bad guys get what's coming to them, and the good guys get their happily ever after. Ages 14 up.
I love all Becca Fitzpatrick books, she’s so good with building sexual tension between the characters and leading you on an amazing journey. The only bad thing is it’s hard to put her books down to do anything else.
Hope to see these characters again.
