Where the Lies Hide by Renee Roman

This story I think is relevant to current affairs with discovering family. Last year, I personally found a sister I didn’t know I had and the author does cover all the “what if’s” very well ie: what if she’s an asshole? what if she’s a close-minded racist twit? what if she’s a professor and thinks I’m an idiot? what if we just don’t get along?

The story and characters were enjoyable and relatable. Cam is such a softy underneath the tough exterior. Sarah was a bit annoying, and I didn’t really care for them as a couple. They didn’t have that spark. I enjoyed the author’s writing and her use of metaphors and analogies. She expresses her character’s emotions very well. Certainly I will read more of hers in the future.

Thanks to NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for providing an Advanced Readers Copy in exchange for an honest review!
