Publisher Description

We all have regrets. 

Being identical twins doesn't make you identical in every way. Paige was tired of always waiting for Jessica and even though their Dad's number one rule was you don't walk home alone, Paige was not going to be late for work again all because Jessica was flirting with yet another boy at school. It was time for Paige to put herself first, regardless of the consequences.

We all make mistakes. 

Since her sister's disappearance that day, for the last 12 years, Paige has devoted her life to helping find other missing children. By working with an organization to find these children, Paige always thinks she's one step closer to finding Jessica, until one day, she actually is. Several tips through the hotline come in, one about a smuggling ring right beneath their noses, and another about someone fitting Jessica's description being sighted, and it's all Paige can do to follow protocol and let someone else take the lead.

We all keep secrets.

One call after another leads Paige and her team down a rabbit hole, revealing secrets that hit close to home and leave more questions than answers.

For instance, why was Detective Lindsay, someone who has been helping Paige search for Jessica, found at the scene of a smuggling ring, moments before that tip came in? Not just that, but why was Brian, a volunteer on Paige's team, found in this house with the girls? Who is Detective Meri Amber and what is she doing in Paisley Valley?
And who is the mysterious woman brought into the hospital, and why does everyone keep telling her she's finally safe when she knows for a fact, she's now in even more danger. Someone is trying to kill her and her son is now missing, too.

Told through the eyes of multiple characters from multiple timelines, Lies We Tell Ourselves, travels into the darkest parts of people's souls as you wonder if anyone is capable of telling the truth.

We all tell lies. 

Lies and secrets collide in this page-turning suspense you won't be able to put down, written by the NYT bestselling author who brought you Finding Emma and The Perfect Secret.

Chilling Suspense

This book gave me the chills! Absolutely, chills! The theme of human trafficking is hard to read about, so I cannot imagine living through it or surviving it. Paige Fischer has an identical twin sister who disappeared twelve years before. Now that she is working for CHILD, an organization dedicated to helping families of the missing and to help locate them if possible, Paige is totally focused on her work and is losing track of her own small family. But that seems to be all that she can do, help others find the closure that she has never had and to one day hope to find Jess. With the help of Detective Lindsay, a determined and tireless supporter of her efforts, Paige tracks the lost and Lindsay tries to bring them home. This book frustrated me because I wanted the victim, Angel, to get out of her plight more quickly. I know that the plot had to run its natural course, but it was so hard to read about what Angel had to go through with her captor. The plot was well-developed with characters that I either loved or hated, no in-between. For example, I hated Paige’s boss because she did not seem to understand Paige’s desperation to find her sister. I sped through this book, finding the different POV’s challenging at times because I just wanted to get back to Angel’s story. However, all of the POV’s gradually meshed as the story rushed to its conclusion. Fans of thrillers and suspense will not be able to put this book down. It’s a fast-paced, heart-tugging and realistic book that will long stay with me, even now that I have finished it. Somewhere, someone is like Angel, crying for help, with no one to hear.
