Tell Her No Lies

Title:  Tell Her No Lies

Author:  Kelly Irvin

Pages:  352

Year:  2018

Publisher:  Thomas Nelson

My rating:  5 out of 5 stars

When I started the book, it reminded me of other novels that began with a similar type plot, but then the story took off in a direction I had not anticipated!  The main character is woman named Nina who loves photography.  She feels safest behind the camera.  Her background is unique.  Her personality has strength and convictions, and she has placed barriers around her heart due to past hurts.  Nina is also the prime subject in the murder of her adoptive father, and it seems as though there are forces at work to pile up the evidence or get rid of her.

The author takes time to slowly develop her plot, personalities and quirks of characters.  Add in some adventure, action and romance and out comes a very entertaining mystery!  The story is one of climbing out from the depths of despair and deciding to make different choices as well as show the faces people rarely see on the streets.  It’s a tale about a father who turns out to be someone other than what he showed the world, and it impacted Nina’s ability to believe in God.

Two men want her heart, and readers will enjoy seeing that aspect play out in the story with the ending one of pure joy!  I haven’t read Kelly Irvin’s prior offerings, but I may just have to do so now, knowing how well this book is written.  It was worth the time taken to read and relish the adventure!  So, if you are looking for a solid story with threads of romance, mystery, faith, action, etc., look no further!  Here is a novel that engages the heart and mind of readers, delivering hope in a huge way!
