Wicked Lies by Lisa Jackson & Nancy Bush

The Book:

Source for ‘The Book’ section : From Goodreads
For two years, Justice Turnbull has paced his room at Halo Valley Security Hospital, planning to escape. Justice has a mission—one that began with a vicious murder two decades ago. And there are so many others who must be sent back to the hell that spawned them. . .

Laura Adderley didn’t plan to get pregnant by her soon-to-be ex-husband, though she’ll do anything to protect her baby. But now reporter Harrison Frost is asking questions about the mysterious group of women who live at Siren Song lodge. Harrison hasn’t figured out Laura’s connection to the story yet. But Justice knows. And he is coming. . .

All her life, Laura has been able to sense approaching evil. But that won’t stop a psychopath bent on destroying her. Justice has been unleashed, and this time, there will be no place safe to hide. . .

The View:

I have read a number of books by Lisa Jackson and each is better than the previous one. I have not read Nancy Bush before and after reading ‘Wicked Lies’ I am eager to read more by this author. Both of them together have brought magic to this book. The character Justice is very unconventional and it surely takes a bold author to justify such craziness. I could literally hear him hissing ‘sisteerrssss’ each time it was mentioned.

The sisters he is referring too are his cousins who live in a colony. For some insane reason he hates them all and has taken it upon himself to kill each and every one of them. The sisters are unique in their individual ways (just like him but much saner) and each of them have a talent that we would otherwise crave for. Laura can talk to Justice in her mind (which is not always a good thing) or block him as needed and then there are other siblings who can see the future.

The main plot was very strong and did not by any means need additional plots, so the smaller unnecessary subplots sort of irritated me. The rich kids who named themselves after the seven deadly sins or the brothers craving for some attention were both just there and could have been avoided.

Laura and Harrison make an adorable pair and they are both extremely smart and sexy personalities. Her pregnancy was a needed element in the plot but she losing the baby was also handled well and completely justified to carry the story forward. Rated a 4 on 5 and though it is a lengthy read it is worth every minute spent.
