Review of The Second Lie

The Second Lie

Tara Taylor Quinn


336 pages

Chandler Ohio is the all American small town where everyone knows their neighbor and kids don’t need to worry about the terrors of big city crime, someone just forgot to mention that to the criminals because there’s big city type trouble with a capital M for Meth and Chandler has been loosing too many citizens because of it. In the mean time Kelly Chapman the psychologist/expert witness we met in The First Wife has alerted deputy Samantha Jones a life long friend to a possible sexual predator in their midsts and as Sam and Kelly try to get to the bottom of this case they open up a Pandora’s Box of trouble. Sam is fighting demons of her own between living up to her families reputation of what being a cop means as well as her strange relationship with former fiancĂ© Kyle Evans. The question is what will she find when she get’s to “The Second Lie”.

Ms. Quinn get’s right down to business in this her second of four novels in her Chapman Files series with a hard edged and very real plot about a very real crisis small town and large city America is going through with the Meth epidemic. She brings us this with a dialogue that gets to the point without any excess and yet brings her story to life with descriptive narrative that puts her reading audience right there, a fly on the wall with her characters. Speaking of her characters they are outstanding in portraying their roles and each one is extremely important to the telling of the tale and you will find yourself impatient to turn pages to see what happens next. Her heroine Sam and hero Kyle are very deserving of their titles and even more deserving of their Happy Ever After. Will they get it, you’ll have to read to find out. The romance is saucy and the love scenes are sensual and any lover of romantic suspense will definitely get their money’s worth with this one.

So if you’re the type who loves conflict with your romance, loves a non-stop action crime story with your romance or just loves a great romantic suspense read, go no farther than “The Second Lie”. Even though this is part of a series it could easily be read as a stand-a-lone. Be sure and be on the lookout for “The Third Secret” due out November 1, 2010 and “The Forth Victim” due out December 1, 2010 to round out the Chapman Files series.
