My main complaint about this book is the formatting the author used. There are not any paragraphs and no indentations. The sentence structure is broken into several lines. This is an example of the Unusual formating used. I have never seen Anyone do this before. I found this To be extremely distracting. This is a free, romance, special agent, mystery. It has some pretty detailed violence, but not gruesomely so. I did not notice any cursing. There is a lot of foreplay, leading up to a rather undescriptive sexual encounter. Which is fine by me. I like the hot and steamy, I dislike an anatomy lesson and discorses on which part feels and does what. I think I can figure that out on my own, or google it if I need too. The main character is a whiner. She faints or almosts collapses a lot. Yet she is a strong resilent woman. I think she has a dual personality. The plot was okay, a little unrealistic at times. There was a pretty well thought out conclusion. This was a fast read. Romances are not my favorite genre, but this one was a light entertaining read. It was easy to put down and pick back up on the story. There were some surprizes and a few nicely done twists and turns. Whodunit was a I'll be darned moment. I would have rated this book higher if it had not been so oddly formatted. Chick lit, ages 16 and up. AD

After suffering the loss of her father at the hands of her ex-husband, Alexa moves to the quiet small town of Startup, Washington, where she purchases a diner and tries to put the past behind her. But when a handsome mysterious stranger named Cayman walks into Alexa's life, she is forced to confront the ghosts and mysteries from the past, as danger and romance lurks around the corner. The Lies That Save Us is an intriguing romantic suspense novel that easily captivates the reader's attention with it's exciting mixture of mystery, suspense, and romance. As the reader follows Alexa and Cayman's journey to unravel her father's mysterious past, they are kept on their toes guessing as riveting twist and turns unfold involving secrets, deception, and danger. And if that isn't enough, the romantic chemistry between Alexa and Cayman slowly builds along the way. I loved the mixture of romance and intrigue, it kept the story interesting, fast-paced, and exciting to follow, even though the reader is left wanting more from the cliffhanger ending. Alexa and Cayman are likable and easy to relate to. As their story unfolds they come to life, and easily draw the reader in with their engaging dialogue and interactions. Both are strong characters that you just can't help but like, and their chemistry is what makes romance novels wonderful to read. The Lies That Save Us has everything a romantic suspense fan could ask for. It is an entertaining and enjoyable story that will keep you captivated, wanting more, and looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Alexa had lost everything in a moment, her father and her ex-fiance. Feeling lost, Alexa found herself in Standup, Washington starting new with a diner she bought and a promise to herself never to get close to another man again. That is until Cayman walked into her diner, he was persistence in trying to get her to date but she refused. When she finally relented it was like her world exploded, now someone is out to get her and she is finding that the father who she loved was not quite who she thought he was. Everything is not adding up though, could Cayman be part of the group out to get her or is it just coincidence that he came into her life? Exciting cat and mouse suspense. You know something is not right but the talented JL Redington leaves plenty of crumbs to keep you guessing until the end. I thought this was a terrific read the chemistry, story and mystery all kept me entertained, anxious to read the next book.

Nothing to write home about.

I couldn't read this because the sentences were staggered all over the page - literally. It was difficult to read and became too annoying. I gave up before even getting through first chapter.

I plan on reading the next book in this series to see if the author's writing improves. I liked the overall thought process of the story, but did not like the interaction between the couple. She was immature and whiney, and I found it hard to believe any normal man would "fall in love" with her.

The storyline was ok, but some of the scenarios are so unrealistic it's annoying. Seriously, who takes off with a guy only knowing his name and that he looks good? The only reason I read the whole book was to find out who he was.

I honestly couldn't tell you if this was a good book or not. It was difficult to read due to the formatting style. It wasn't worth the effort and I couldn't get past the first page.
