New York Times bestselling author J.T. Ellison takes her exceptional writing to a new level with this breakout novel.
They built a life on lies
Sutton and Ethan Montclair’s idyllic life is not as it appears. They seem made for each other, but the truth is ugly. Consumed by professional and personal betrayals and financial woes, the two both love and hate each other. As tensions mount, Sutton disappears, leaving behind a note saying not to look for her.
Ethan finds himself the target of vicious gossip as friends, family and the media speculate on what really happened to Sutton Montclair. As the police investigate, the lies the couple have been spinning for years quickly unravel. Is Ethan a killer? Is he being set up? Did Sutton hate him enough to kill the child she never wanted and then herself? The path to the answers is full of twists that will leave the reader breathless.

Good Weekend Read
Suspenseful page turner read. My weekend here was cold and rainy so great opportunity to enjoy it. Not the best from this author, but was still enjoyable.
Great Book, please make a second!
I absolutely loved the story line and the detail that went into this book. You truly feel drawn into the book and the thoughts of each character! I never wanted to put it down! At the end I wanted to keep reading! I want to know how she knows about her daughter, why she wants to keep that a secret!? How long has she known!? Did she just find out, if not how did she find her in social media so fast?! Please make a continuance to Lie to Me!
Lie to Me by JTEllison
I read about 30 books per month, more during the summer. I discovered this book after I finished reading The 6th Day, which Jt wrote with Catherine Coulter, one of my favorite mystery writers. When I began Lie to Me, I did not know what to expect, but night after night, after working as a reading specialist all day, I found it hard to put the book down. Finally, when I was a third of the way from the end, I was up until I finished it. It just got better and better. The characters where believable, but the twist and turns just kept me reading. I’ve read thousands of book in my life, mystery being one of my favorite genres, but I have to say, I look forward to reading more of JT’s books. Great fun. Thank you.
