Lying with Strangers is the provocative story of two very different women and the tragic event that brings them together, opening the door to second chances. Against her better judgment, Chloe Henderson becomes the unwitting accomplice to a murder committed by her boyfriend. The victim's grief-stricken wife is shocked to discover the lies and secrets her husband has kept from her. When her young son plows into Chloe with his bike, the women's lives become entwined in ways neither of them could have imagined. Joel Richards, an enthusiastic young journalist covering recent developments in an old murder, has his own reasons for being interested in the victim, and in Chloe.

My Thoughts

The choices we make define the consequences we have to live with. What if those choices led to a chain of events that tore apart every belief you had about the life you had been living? What if those same choices endangered your future? What choice would you make, to tell the truth or to lie and take your chances on never being found out? These are the questions asked of Diana Walker and Chloe Henderson and the answers may surprise you more than you expect them too!

This story is built in stages, with each stage leading into the other seamlessly. The different characters come together to form a group who is bound by the secrets and lies of the past but held together by the hopes and dreams of the future.

More than just a murder mystery thriller this tale is full of rich insights into human nature that we can all learn a lesson from, especially the one that holds true that if it sounds too good to be true than it probably is not the truth. Filled with tension and suspense, tears and sorrow as well as joy and laughter this is a heartwarming look into the lives of fictional people who become real as we follow along with them on their journey to the truth.

A twisted web of deceit and murder tempered with hopeful new beginnings.
