What is your favorite book genre?

Romance? Suspense? Comedy? Sci-fi? Nonfiction?

For me, I've found that my preferences go through stages. I'll go through a spell where I can't get enough supernatural fiction... then move onto a spell of nonfiction for awhile. Right now, I cannot get enough of romantic suspense stories. Today, I'm sharing a recent read with you, 'Tell Her No Lies':


Combining romance and suspense, bestselling author Kelly Irvin’s Tell Her No Lies is a high-stakes race for the truth.
“A moving and compelling tale about the power of grace and forgiveness that reminds us how we become strongest in our most broken moments.”—Library Journal review of Upon a Spring Breeze
Even the most admired families have secrets to hide . . .
Nina Fischer carries a camera wherever she goes—so she can view life through a filter. Safely. After her mother abandoned her to the streets, Nina has kept people at a distance, including her uncle, who adopted Nina and her sister. Wealthy and proud, he is a good man, a fair judge, and someone many in San Antonio admire.
But when he is murdered, and the detective assigned to the case accuses Nina of the crime, she knows she must act. She’s determined to use her journalism background to find the real killer. The two men in her life want to help, but can she trust them? She’s known Rick since they were children, but now he’s an attorney whose political aspirations seem more important than Nina’s tragic loss. And then there’s Aaron, a news videographer; using their friendship could break the biggest story of his career.
Following the evidence leads Nina on a journey of discovery into her father’s shocking masquerade as a law-abiding, family-loving Christian. Unlocking these secrets could prove fatal, but it’s the only way Nina will ever be able to trust love again.

Romantic suspense. A great mystery that keeps you guessing at each turn of the page, with some romance thrown in the mix too. It's the best of both worlds, and I truly cannot get enough. Needless to say, when I read the cover description of this book, I was intrigued and couldn't wait to start reading.

And it did not disappoint! From the very start, I found myself wanting to know more, more, more. What was going to happen next? The excitement truly started right from the very start... not letting up until the very end. With each turn of the page it seemed as though more secrets were unfolding. Just when you thought you might have it figured out, there was another surprise lurking around the corner. Everything that a good suspense should be. I won't give too much away, but I promise this is one that's sure to keep you guessing.

Mixed into that was the romance--- which also started right from the beginning and developed as the story went on. Unlike many other great romance stories that often start with that chance meeting, we are told right from the start that there was a little something forming for a long time. I think so often relationships form that way, so in that aspect it was a very realistic relationship. And also a very flawed one. In fact, all of the characters we are introduced to throughout have their flaws. I must admit there were more than a few times where I find myself shaking my head as I read... why didn't they just do what they SHOULD have. But then, perfect people don't make for interesting stories do they. And they don't show us the need for forgiveness and grace--- another common theme throughout this story!

As a Christian suspense, there is no language or vivid romantic moments. It did deal with some violent themes, of course... but did so in a very real way. I couldn't put it down!

If you're looking for a great read this winter, 'Tell Her No Lies' is a must read. It is available to purchase now.
