    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.I've not read any of Lisa Jackson's recent books, but I have read her in the past. She is a really good mystery-suspense author and I really enjoyed the intriguing tale that unfolds in "Liar, Liar". The beginning hooked me and the ending was seat of your pants suspense, the middle, alas, dragged a bit. The baddie and the why rem...

    This book just was not for me. It seemed so far fetched that I had trouble getting into it. I was disappointed as I was really looking forward to this one. Oh well, you out can't, love them all

    Hardcover. I normally get into Lisa Jackson's novels, but I'm afraid I struggled getting into this one. Just to let all fans know I haven't given up on this author I'm really looking forward to reading the next book by Lisa Jackson.

    So, I generally like Lisa Jackson’s books. They’re easy reads with a nice mix of romance and suspense.I just wasn’t all that into the plot on this one.It was slow and I really didn’t care whether or not they actually found out what happened to Didi. I was just kind of…bored.In addition, I felt like the reason behind everything got seriously convoluted, but still left a plot point hanging.So, this one really wasn’t for me. I’ll read ...

    I didn’t figure out the mystery at all! Hahaha. Enjoyed this book immensely. Felt sorry for Remmi through most of the book, so I wasn’t comfortable reading this book, but it paid off in the end. Great storytelling.

    3 1/2 out of 5 StarsFor readers looking for realism this book isn't for you.Liar Liar is a plot driven novel so back story of the characters is slim but readers catch on fast as Lisa Jackson reveals her story with the twist that take time to absorb.

    Ugh. I am usually a huge fan of Lisa Jackson but her newest book Liar, Liar just didn't keep my attention. It felt like it took me forever to get through it and I actually skimmed most of it. Remmi Storm is 14 when her mother and 2 half siblings disappear. 20 years later someone who maybe Didi Storm (Remmi's mother) jumps out a hotel window. Dozens of characters, dozens of story lines muddy the waters of this book, trying to resolve the issue of ...

    Liar, Liar by Lisa Jackson published by Kensington Books is a great summer read for anyone who likes thrillers. Over the years I have been sadden by some of my go to authors. Their stories and characters having turned stale and leaving me yearning for the days of yore. Lisa Jackson is definitely not one of those authors. I have been reading Lisa Jackson books since I was about 15 my mom use to pick up 4-5 books for me and I would be done in less ...

    Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of Liar, Liar by Lisa Jackson that I read and reviewed.This book was an excellent book by Lisa Jackson. I can honestly say that I was guessing from the start who the killer was and what really was going on with Didi and the twins. I loved how Jackson kept the reader on the edge and brought the story from the current time to the past and then back to the current time. It was just written so well that as a reader, I ...

    If I see Lisa Jackson's name on a mystery it is almost a guarantee that I will thoroughly enjoy the story. This book simply proves that theory! Technically I suppose this book is a romantic suspense but the focus is almost entirely on the mystery surrounding a woman that has been missing for twenty years. The romance is almost non-existent and really doesn't come into play until the end of the story. Even though some of the mystery takes place tw...

    Lisa Jackson is my go to author for mystery books. I really liked this book. It was very suspenseful. I didn’t like the characters I wasn’t supposed to like. I liked the characters I was supposed to like. The plot was awesome. I kind of figured out the ending but not completely. My only complaint ~ I like action. There was a bit too much talking and not enough suspense. I would like to thank NetGalley, Lisa Jackson and Kensington for an ARC o...

    So many threads to this plot were so far out there, yet it seemed completely plausible while I was reading it. The suspense and mystery kept me engaged, the small bit of romance seemed thrown in for kicks. I did not guess who the person "behind the curtain" was at all, which contributed to the enjoyment of the mystery plotline.

    I'm not sure what I think of this one. It's got some serious moments of holding your attention while also leaving you wondering just what this book is actually supposed to be about. It's got some wonderfully fantastic characters that I would love to follow (Remmi, Noah, Greta, and Jade).I gave this three stars because there were such great characters. I hate writing reviews where I don't necessarily care for the story but everything is not for ev...

Far below her a crowd of horrified onlookers raise their cell phones aloft. But, for one young woman amongst them, it’s personal.

    I found this Lisa Jackson book to be a fun read (if one suspends credulity and is willing to accept a lot of coincidences that challenge logic) and certainly based on an intricate and interesting premise. Part 1 of the story is set in Las Vegas 20 years ago. Didi Storm, a B-list Vegas Marilyn Monroe impersonator and a women with a highly checkered past involving lots of shady characters, disappears without a trace after a scam gone wrong that lea...

    For me this is one of those authors that when you start one of their books you are unable to put it down!The story is told between the past and the present, while we discover the story of Didi Storm and the race against the clock of her daughter searching for the truth, risking her life with it.This is a thriller full of hate, betrayal and family confrontations, that will make the reader think about their parents and how much they love them.
