It has been 18 months since book 1 in this series and I was excited to finally be getting my hands on book 2.
Hiding Lies sees Miles in Turkey with his parents and Eleanor going on a three week field trip to New York City. But the field trip is just an excuse for Eleanor to go undercover in her father’s current con, working with the FBI in the hopes of getting her mother’s prison sentence reduced.
This story is full on from start to finish. Between school, her friends, her boyfriend Miles, her family, the FBI and the mob Eleanor has so many balls in the air. The collision of the different part of her life keep Eleanor on her toes and we get to see in her element, putting her skills as a con artist to good use.
The story has a few good twists and turns but I kept waiting for everything to go pear shaped. I loved seeing Eleanor working all sides and trying to decipher right from wrong and good from bad but it is a lot of presume on one high school student.
Hiding Lies is an excellent, fast paced action/mystery with a bit of family drama and some good solid teen romance and I had a great time reading it. I hope we don’t have to wait another 18 months for book 3.

Since her father's current scam is centered in New York City, she finds herself taking part in a between terms field trip to New York City with some of her Holden Prep classmates. She doesn't get much change to participate in those cultural activities as she tries to figure out what her father's scam is. Seems he's doing something with the mafia. Miles is on his trail too. Yes, the same Miles who is her boyfriend but who dropped off the grid leaving her very worried about him.
This was a really twisty story with cons inside cons and most people not who they appeared to be. Ellie and Miles almost reach a crisis when she learns that he has joined St. Felicity's Shelter - a group of noble assassins - in order to track down the rogues and fulfill his promise to his best friend Simon. Ellie is hurt that Miles' first loyalty needs to be to St. Felicity's. She was hoping that he would put her first.
Ellie also learns more about her father's reasons for getting involved in this whole scam which changes the way she has been thinking about him since she ran from him to be with her sister.
This was an action-packed story with a lot of emotional intensity. I liked the plots within plots. I also liked the way Ellie and Miles' relationship is going.
