Book Review - White Lies

White Lies


Jayne Ann Krentz

I've discovered another author whose writing I enjoy. WHITE LIES is the first novel I've read by Jayne Ann Krentz and I liked it. She writes under at least 3 pen names: Krentz for romantic suspense, Amanda Quick for historical romances and Jayne Castle for futuristic paranormal romance. On her website you will find a complete list of all her books. She seems to be as prolific as Nora Roberts. I also happened to pick up "DARK LIGHT" when I was at Barnes and Noble picking up Brisinger.

WHITE LIES is a paranormal romance and book # 2 in the Arcane Society series. I didn't read book 1 because don't like historical type romances, so started with White Lies.

Front Inside Flap Description of Book

"Level ten parasensitive Clare Lancaster has resigned herself to the fact that she may never find a suitable mate. A human lie detector, any falsehood--no matter how subtle--sets her blood racing. And most people, to one degree or another, hide behind a facade.

Including her father's new business 'consultant' Jake Salter. His careful conversation walks a delicate line between truth and deception. But it is with his help that Clare begins to unravel a web of conspiracy and murder involving the powerful Arizona family that she just became a part of. Caught in a dissying story of secrets, lies and half-truths, Clare and Jake will plunge into an investigation that demands every bit of their special gifts, as something more than mere attraction sparks between them."

The story catches your attention from the beginning and the twists and turns in the plot keep you riveted. She thinks he killed him, he thinks she killed him, they think she killed him and someone else thinks someone else killed him. Who really did it? You don't know until the end. Clare and Jake join forces to figure out the mystery while bodies pile up and more secrets are revealed. Yes, it's convoluted but good. Throw in the paranormal aspect, plus family secrets, plus the sexual tension between the two characters and you have a book that will keep you up late into the night reading.
