The Truth About Lies (The Truth Duet, #1)
Truth: From over a thousand miles away, I watched on the screen of my phone as two men murdered my wife. And I was helpless to save her.
Consumed by hate and rage, I spent four years running from my memories.
Until a shattered woman gave me a reason to stop.
Cora lived in a nightmare, but through sheer force of will, she’d turned it into something beautiful. She had a smile that could pierce the darkest soul. And with one glance, she shredded mine.
Lie: I was only there for a fresh start.
Lie: I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
Lie: There was nothing I could do to save her, either.
But that’s the thing about lies—you never know who to believe.

WOW what needs to be said other than WOW
Penn opens in a VERY dark scene. It is no spoiler, but bad guys that want to get to him target WHO? the wife of course. it is tragic, vivid, hard to read and dark. this awful phone call lasts almost 30 minutes and tragically changes Penn in ways that nobody wants to be forced to live in. I do like this author a lot, so it was a fairly fast read. The characters who are in “the house” are on floor numbers according to their status. There are 3 floors in this horribly described house of whores. it seems dark, dirty and awful, but a way of life for all the residents.
Cora is the Momma Bear and a Guerrero. It seems that she did get the one brother who was good. BUT, as the saying goes, only the good die young. The Guerrero brothers are drug pushers, flesh peddlers and ruthless in all aspects of the family business. The leader is in prison so the sons are basically in charge of the empire. Penn is brought in to be the “handyman” and his mission to get the goods on the family is set up really solid. This aspect of the book is totally what grabs you in and keeps you turning the pages. The series starts off really good bringing promise of more to come. Specifically September 13th is the release for book 2. At least you can get more without having to wait too long. NO cliffhangers here.
I really can’t wait for your thoughts. You will not be disappointed.

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.
Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.
She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
