CONVENIENT LIES (Hidden Truth, Book 1) by Robin Patchen ~ a review

Convenient LiesRomantic Suspense, Mystery

Investigative reporter Rachel McAdams uncovers the ugly truth about her charming new husband. He’s an arms dealer and part of a deadly international crime family. She’s got a few secrets of her own, not to mention deep wounds. There is no shortage of suspense.

Naturally, Rae must protect her newborn infant from this evil. She cannot allow her son to be brought up in such a family to become a criminal. So she flees Paris and without any notice returns to her grandmother’s house in New Hampshire. Upon arrival, she learns her beloved grandmother recently passed away and the author shines a light on Rae’s past and her pain in a very believable way.

Now she’s alone, just she and her baby boy. That’s when Brady, her sweetheart from long ago, shows up and he’s still carrying a torch for her. But she carries a grudge. The interplay between Rae, Brady, and Samantha is piognant and the resolution the characters come to is satisfying.

I’m always interested in how realistically the vilains are portrayed. Author Rachen Patchen gives an extremely vivid and authentic portrait of a sophisticated, international crime family…with most of its members and loyal staff totally ruthless.
