~Truth and Lies~

by Rida Allen

Heroine: plump/voluptuous

         

         Fate conspired and it was a fait accompli.

         The offer of a job as a live-in nanny seemed like a godsend to Valerie Adamson, who had lost everything she owned thanks to the shiftless husband who abandoned her to a mountain of debts he'd accrued behind her back. But Val, who was raised in a chain of foster homes, isn't sure she can provide what her new charge needs.

 

        George Richards was uncertain about hiring a complete stranger to care for his four year old daughter, even if she is a close friend of his brother and sister-in-law. And he certainly never expected that he would fall for this modern day June Cleaver who keeps his hectic life running like clockwork.

 

         But the closer George gets to Valerie, the more panicky she begins to feel, until one night she flees from his home and breaks the hearts of the people left behind.  Will she change her mind and return?  And will George be able to forgive her for running out on him, just like his ex had?

 

What worked for me:

           Ms. Allen's signature realistic characters fill the pages of this novel with their warmth and wit. And the storyline is both sweet and interesting.

 

            Size-wise Val was rounder than George's ex, but he liked her that way.

 

What didn't work for me:

           

            There were a couple of technical issues in this story, but more than anything I noticed that we never got to see George at work, which I really would have liked to have seen.

 

          Also, it's just no fair leaving us readers without a neatly wrapped up ending.   Now we'll have to wait until the next book in the series to find out the truth about Val's family history!

      

Overall:

              "Truth and Lies" is a sequel even stronger than the original story.  Fans of sexy short romance novels are sure to love this one!
 

Warning: Things do get a bit steamy in this book a few times.

 

If you liked "Truth and Lies" you might also enjoy: "Love at Large", "The Legacy Tree", "Suite Seduction",  "Miracles", "A Worthy Heir", "Carried Away", "More to Love""His E-mail Order Wife""His Seductive Revenge", "Love by the Pound", "Tales from the Heart", "Teacher's Pet", or "Etta Mae's Little Theory".
