The sequel to TRUST ME, I’M LYING
“An irresistible mix of intrigue, high stakes, and self-discovery.” —Lee Kelly, author of City of Savages
Staying out of trouble isn’t possible for Julep Dupree. She has managed not to get kicked out of her private school, even though everyone knows she’s responsible for taking down a human-trafficking mob boss—and getting St. Agatha’s golden-boy Tyler killed in the process. Running cons holds her guilty conscience at bay, but unfortunately, someone wants Julep to pay for her mistakes . . . with her life.
Against her better judgment, Julep takes a shady case that requires her to infiltrate a secretive organization that her long-gone mother and the enigmatic blue fairy may be connected to. Her best friend, Sam, isn’t around to stop her, and Dani, her one true confidante, happens to be a nineteen-year-old mob enforcer whose moral compass is as questionable as Julep’s. But there’s not much time to worry about right and wrong—or to save your falling heart—when there’s a contract on your head.
Murders, heists, secrets and lies, hit men and hidden identities . . . If Julep doesn’t watch her back, it’s her funeral. No lie.
“I would trust Julep Dupree with my life, Dani Ivanov with my heart—and Mary Elizabeth Summer with my every late-night can’t-stop-reading session. An intelligent, fierce heroine of strength and loyal heart who refuses to suffer fools lightly? Yes, please.” —Jennifer Longo, author of Six Feet Over It and Up to This Pointe

I loved this sequel. Much as I adored the first book, this one took it to a whole new level for me with the Julep/Dani ship. Cannot WAIT for the next one in the series!
Better then the first.
This novel was just as amazing, exciting, and enjoyable as the first. This sequel to Trust Me I'm Lying picks up after Julep defeats the Ukrainian mob. Trying to keep a low profile, Julep now only accepts small, safe jobs as a private investigator. Until a woman approaches her claiming her husband fell under the spell of a cult like business and is now serving time for a crime they supposedly brain washed him to commit. Julep is hesitant to take the job, but when she learned the secretive organization has ties to her missing mother. And just to add to the suspense, Julep's name appears on a hit lit. The I loved most about this book is the characters. The author has created a diverse cast of characters that you automatically love and care for. Their morals are questionable, but you can't help but love them and cheer for them. Julep's relationship with Dani may be one of my favorite female pairings in YA fiction. Side note, I just wanted to hug Dani the whole time and tell her everything will be okay. Even though she'd probably hate me for it. Great, exciting read with a diverse group of characters that you can't help but love. Five stars!
