Book Review: Living Lies

From the Back:

In the little town of Walton, Georgia, everybody knows your name--but no one knows your secret.
At least that's what Lane Kent is counting on when she returns to her hometown with her five-year-old son. Dangerously depressed after the death of her husband, Lane is looking for hope. What she finds instead is a dead body.

Lane must work with Walton's newest deputy, Charlie Lynch, to uncover the truth behind the murder. But when that truth hits too close to home, she'll have to decide if saving the life of another is worth the cost of revealing her darkest secret.

My Reflections:
Natalie Walters hits the mark with her debut novel "Living Lies." Intriguing plot marred with death and deceit pair this with heart jarring topics of depression, PTSD, suicide and a mother's love and you have a best-seller! 
I found myself really put out when I had to put the book down to attend to life. 
Small town Georga is picturesque and filled with great people and home town community, however, not everything is as it seems as darkness creeps into the crevices of this well-manicured little town. 

Lane's struggle is portrayed realistically, but the autour does a fine job at balancing this reality with the handsome newcomer, Charlie Lynch. Though the romance is a little on again off again you can understand this with the mental state Lane is in. Her confidence is crushed and her controlling parents don't help matters one bit. It was a beautiful unfurling as we witness Lane realizing life may just have something to live for. 

I was drawn to Carlie Lynch right away, he reminded me of my husband: he is the epitome of protection, kindness and trust. Who wouldn't want that in a life partner? He doggedly respects Lane's space but also won't let her wither away, but holds her close, even when danger is forefront in their lives. 

All in all this book was a "YES, PLEASE!" In the fact that this authour has made it to my top 10 authors to watch for, I am eagerly awaiting book two, Natalie Walters, great work!
