Lies Come True is the first book in the Avery Hart Trilogy by Emerald O’Brien. This is the first book of Ms. O’Brien’s that I have read, so I was looking forward to reading this story, discovering her style, and enjoying the mystery. It is a suspenseful murder mystery- with drama, intrigue, and plenty of surprising developments. Ms. O’Brien deftly wove her story, building tension and suspense, and adding enough twists to really leave me guessing, the whole way through. Avery Hart endured a very traumatic experience ten years prior that has left her a little broken. So, what will she do when her nightmares come back, with deadly consequences- now that a dangerous and cunning killer is on the loose and targeting women. We follow Avery, Noah, Fiona, and the rest of the cast as this gripping mystery unfolds. Will they uncover the mystery before anyone else gets hurt or killed? Will it put a target on their backs? How will it all play out? A gripping, intriguing, and believable story which kept me on the edge of my seat. Bring on Book Two!
Lies Come True (The Avery Hart Trilogy Book 1) by Emerald O'Brien is a great dark thriller, murder mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat through to the end. Emerald has very cleverly written something that completely throws you off track just when you think you have got it worked out. The suspense will keep you on alert and intrigued without letting go. This is a brilliant start to the series and I can not wait The book is an emotional rollercoaster ride and the angst and fear is palpable.
Avery has lived her life in constant fear since her attack 10 years ago, but when she sees a police report her world is once again turned upside down and her worst nightmare is coming to rule her life again. With a crazy killer on the loose can the police keep all of the girls safe?
This is on thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat and your heart rate pulsing and the only downside is that it ends with a cliffhanger. No fair Emerald. I am trying to be patient and wait for the next story but it’s hard.
If you love mysteries, and I do, you will thoroughly enjoy Lies Come True. The first book in the Avery Hart Trilogy is everything a mystery reader could ask for with an ending that leaves you wanting more.
The story is light on the romantic elements, heavy on the suspense and mystery. The action starts from the first paragraph and doesn't stop until the end.
What I liked about Lies Come True is that all the main characters are relatable. You can see yourself as Avery, as Fiona or Noah. And if you can't see yourself as one of them, you can certainly see a friend as one of them.
This is my first read from Emerald O'Brien but will not be my last.
