She never thought it would go this far.

It started out so innocently, but now has taken on a life of its own. Problem is, Lindsay Palmer doesn't know how to stop. Even worse, she doesn't want to stop. Her daily deceit has become both her greatest pleasure and deepest shame. Thousands of people love her, but would they if they knew the truth.

A simple favor for his baby sister brings Lindsay into Luke Jamieson's life. There's something about this girl that keeps her on his mind hours and days after each time they meet. Now here he is, falling in love with a liar. All he wants is for her to let him in, and maybe together he can lead her out of the cage of her own construction.

Will the truth set her free, or have her lies already destroyed everything?

Lindsay is agoraphobic and hosts a hugely popular fashion blog. She hires Luke, who was introduced in The Other Side of Someday, to help her get in shape for her 10-year high school reunion. Although the training starts out virtually through video chat, Luke slowly manages to integrate himself in Lindsay’s life, meeting her in person and getting her to open up, leave her house, and take a chance on him. But Lindsay is keeping a secret - the reason she doesn’t interact with the outside world - that could destroy everything she has built. Don’t hate me, I’m a fan of Carey, but…this was not my cup of tea. It’s a wonderful story and an interesting concept. My neighbor is agoraphobic. As in, I’ve never seen her, but I see her trash on trash day; she has her groceries delivered (go Peapod); and the lights go on and off. My mom claims to have met her briefly, but I have my doubts. Anyhoo, I digress. This is not your typical, girl meets boy, falls in love in two weeks, and live happily ever after, story. The majority of the story is Luke getting Lindsay to even let him hold her hand. Then, the climax of the reunion (or what I thought was going to be the climax) was over in a snap. I wanted Lindsay to lay the smackdown (at least verbally) on her arch nemesis - the horrible, horrible excuse for a woman responsible for Lindsay being the way she is. I also wanted to know if anything came from that opportunity Luke had in his storyline. The characters are well developed. Carey does a really good job of detailing their lives, thoughts, and emotions it’s hard to believe they are fictional characters. For me, this was like a roller coaster with a really long, tall ascension, but then the rest of the roller coaster was really short and disappointing.

Upon finishing, my initial reaction: Decided to pick this one up tonight, read a few pages or a chapter... ended up finishing the whole thing. And now I'm full of so many emotions, I don't even know where to start. The one thing I have to say is that this book was so beautiful. Just so beautiful. My Thoughts (full review): After devouring the first book in the Carolina Days series, I couldn't wait to read the next one. I had several review books that I needed to read when I decided I wanted to get a taste of this story. What happened instead was me spending an entire night finishing the book because I couldn't get enough of it. Lindsay isn't the usual heroine. In fact, she's facing some very serious issues--ones that cause her to avoid people. When she and Luke first start talking, it's very innocent and friendly. As time goes by, though, Luke is drawn to Lindsay in a way he didn't realize or expect. She finds it difficult to open up to him, but he's not about to give up on her. He grows to care for her, and she's starting to let him in, which is something she hasn't been willing to do for a long time. Pretty soon, the truth starts to come out, and it's up to Lindsay to be strong like Luke knows she can be. Yesterday's Half Truths was such a lovely, wonderful, beautiful, and gorgeous book. It's not a conventional romance by any means, but oh boy, was it an amazing romance. Carey Heywood blew me away with it--the emotions brought the feels so much I was nearly sobbing by the time I finished. And half of the crying wasn't even from sadness, it was from how happy the story made me. For crying out loud, I'm tearing up as I type this. Please, please, please keep these stories coming! My Rating: Exceptional

Lindsay is a blogger loved by thousands of fans, but she doesn’t love herself. I wanted to reach in to the pages and give her the biggest hug. That is of course if she would let me. She not only has agoraphobia (fear of leaving the house), but she is like most women, she has body issues. An upcoming reunion forces her to seek out a trainer. Luke is a man always willing to go the extra mile to help a client. Doing a favor for his sister by helping her friend will be his newest client and his biggest challenge. I just adored these two together. You could see their love grow through their texts and online sessions. I loved his passion and the way that Luke would never give up on Lindsay. I am not a fan of spoilers, but I will tell you that if you are looking for a love story that grows with every scene, a love that doesn’t care what size you are, a love that can accept your idiosyncrasies, and a love that won’t quit despite the challenges they each face then this book is for you. It is the perfect, quick read that will make you * sigh * out loud one, two, three…..times.

This book had me hooked from page one, I could not wait to dive in and learn Luke’s story.  The book is more than Luke’s story –  it’s Luke and Lindsay’s story.  It’s a great story of overcoming fear and learning to open up and being brave (as Carey writes in the book , I love the use of that word).  But, most importantly, it’s about taking charge of your life, shedding the images that society has created for us and accepting who you are.  Carey writes that beautifully and over the course of this book, we see the two main characters do  just that.  Her flawless depiction of a person struggling day to day with social conventions is refreshing and ultimately overcoming those  fears is inspiring.  I have always been a big fan of Carey’s, but this is her best book yet.  I laughed and I cried, once at the same time. Reading the synopsis of this books did in no way prepare me for the actual book.  Looking back it the synopsis now, I can see how it  relates, but this was not the story I was expecting.  It was so much better!  I cannot wait for the next book in the series.  I hope it is Sasha’s story – fingers crossed. I was given this book for a fair and honest review for the Books Books Books Blog.
