The fifth book in the USA Today Wall Street Journal bestselling Carly Moore series.
It’s been a week since Carly Moore’s friend Jerry was run off the road and killed, and the sheriff’s department has already struck out on leads. She’s not about to sit back and let it go, but the last thing she wants is to endanger anyone else. Besides, as she learned long ago, problems come in threes.
A mysterious woman causes a ruckus in the tavern where Carly works and leaves behind a note: We’ve got some unfinished business, Carly Moore. I’ll be in touch. The stranger looks like trouble, and Carly knows it means nothing good. Then, on the heels of that encounter, she gets shocking news: the crime syndicate her father co-ran has been taken down by the authorities.
She’s not foolish enough to think her father has been neutralized, but she realizes she needs to act against him soon if she wants to stop hiding.
The deeper Carly digs into her family’s past, the more dirt she finds. But lies are told for a reason, and there are people around her who are willing to kill to keep the truth hidden.
Can’t wait for “Moore”
One of the many reasons I am a fan of Carly and this series is because of the incredible character development that we witness with each installment, and I think Carly truly comes into her own in The Lies She Told. There is a LOT of outward vulnerability that we don’t often see. She is open with her love for Marco and Hank, and her anger. She’s outspoken and forceful. She stands up for herself. You can’t help but be proud of the person she is becoming. And while I wasn’t convinced that Marco was the best love interest for our girl, this book showcases their love and respect for each other and you can’t help but get on board!
I loved the various plots the happened within The Lies She Told. It kept me on my toes and I was never quite sure which way to look. Carly sought vengeance for Jerry, got to the bottom of Hank’s supposed fortune, and confronted her past all while continuing to work towards taking down Bart.
The ending, while wrapping up some things, definitely left me wanting more!!
Another great book! Denise’s books never disappoint. Can’twait for the next one!
All the feels!!!
Things are getting real in Drum!! Carly is getting so close to the truth of it all. There are so many surprises in this book. Like BIG surprises! I can not wait to see where the story goes now. There are definitely a lot possibilities! If you’ve dipped your feet into this series, you definitely don’t want to stop now. If you haven’t yet, get started. This series will take you on a ride!
I love the Drum crew. I’m so team Carly and Marco it’s insane. I LOVED getting an update from Rose. I hope we see more of that!
