The Lies About The Truth Blog Tour

Title: Lies About The Truth

"Sadie Kingston, is a girl living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max.

As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she's unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him — even if Max is able to look at her scars and not shy away. But when the truth about the accident and subsequent events comes to light, Sadie has to decide if she can embrace the future or if she'll always be trapped in the past. "

Thoughts: THE LIES ABOUT THE TRUTH completely caught me off-guard in the best possible ways. The emotions, so raw and pure, and the characters...I simply cannot find the right words to describe how truly remarkable this novel really is. I have goosebumps just thinking about it!

From the summary, you can see that this isn't a lighthearted novel. Sadie survived a car accident that took the life of her best friend. Though she survived the accident, she is left with scars on her face and body as well as ones on her soul and heart. It's not until her and Max (Trent's brother) start emailing each other and seeing each other again that she starts to really heal inside.

First off, I really adored Sadie. Though I've never had to deal with something so tragic and heartbreaking, I could experience what she was going to and relate. She has this strength inside of her that I really admired. I enjoyed reading about her journey and the mystery being the accident.

While I liked Max, I don't know if I really loved him. The romance between the two was sweet, and I really enjoyed it. I just didn't find Max swoon-worthy for some reason, and I honestly think it's me (not the book). Maybe I've been reading too many "adult" novels or something. He's more of a best friend type, but I do think he's perfect for Sadie.

Overall, I really enjoyed THE LIES ABOUT THE TRUTH and look forward to the author's next novels. She's definitely on my radar now, and I've got my eye on her. I loved this book so much, I ended up purchasing the ebook for FAKING NORMAL (How could I not?). If you're a fan of SAVING JUNE of FALLING INTO PLACE, you'll easily fall in love with THE LIES ABOUT THE TRUTH.

  5. Testimony about how i saved my broken marriage within 2days and get my husband Back...! My name is Natasha Becky. I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband with two kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{Templeofloveandprosperity@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 9 months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, If you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, Thanks to Dr Frank Ojo for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again, SO HERE HIS EMAIL ADDRESS { Templeofloveandprosperity@gmail.com } WEBSITE ADDRESS : http://lovespell2.yolasite.com, Thanks you Dr Frank Ojo, i Helene will always be testifying about your good work.
