My thoughts on Robin's novel titled "Twisted Lies"

Title:  Twisted Lies (Hidden Truth Book #2)

Author:  Robin Patchen

Pages:  388

Year:  2017

Publisher:  Create Space

My rating 5+ stars out of 5.

Robin Patchen continues her characters’ stories with the book, Twisted Lies that focuses on Nate who we met in book one, Convenient Lies.  From what Nate experiences in the first tale, we now find him packing up to leave New York and his job to return to the small town where he grew up.  While he has physically healed from his horrible experience, PTSD is making his life hard.  On top of that, Nate believes he is not a hero or much of a man, but a coward.  While many tell him that those beliefs are lies, Nate just cannot seem to break through and understand how others see him.

While packing to leave, he becomes entangled in a way he never wants to become ever again!  Now, Leslie wants him to help her locate her sister, Marissa, who he helped run from threatening danger that was dogging her steps as well as the authorities who couldn’t or wouldn’t believe her to be innocent.

What happens when the sisters meet and the mystery of who took the company’s money brings danger into Nate’s world again.  However, it also brings up the romantic feelings he has always carried in his heart for Marissa.  The race to locate who really stole the money from the company forces Marissa to risk helping her sister who is said to have been threatened if she doesn’t locate and return it.  Once again Nate must decide whether to be drawn into a world of murder, mystery, intrigue and extreme danger or walk away. 

The friends of Nate’s we meet in the first book congregate around him and Marissa to help keep them safe and figure out the clues in the hopes of locating the real thief.  It was really awesome to see the team of friends come around to help and support Marissa despite the threat of danger.  They welcome her, care for her and share their stories in hopes that Marissa can bear up under the multitude of threats, loss and grief that seem to constantly plague her life.

I think the author does an absolutely outstanding job of writing a story that will keep people reading plus wanting more books from Robin in the future.  I, for one, cannot wait to see what comes next out of her imagination which she shares through her gift of storytelling.  So, before the next book is out, you best get caught up in the action from the first two books!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
