    IF YOU ARE A FAN OF VERONICA MARS THEN YOU MUST READ THIS AMAZING THRILLER NOVEL! I loved this story and its complex story and characters! I cannot wait for the sequel!
  • Courtney
    I had the opportunity to read this book as a beta reader and see the transformation of this book go from "I am loving the whole idea of this book" to "holy shit, you really nailed YA Mystery with the whole Veronica Mars vibe." I did read the final version of this book and even book a physical copy because I love it so much. The only way to describe this book and not give anything away is saying it is a great blend of Veronica Mars and Riverdale ....

    Sassy, snarky, sarcastic characters!  This was such a fun book for me.Trigger/content warnings for sexual assault and physical abuse.Kylene's father was recently convicted of murder and her mother left.  So Ky has to move back to her home town and live with her grandpa (who I loved).  Her family left a couple years earlier after Ky had naked pictures taken at a party and leaked online.  The suspects were all football players and they were pro...

    The marshmallow in me is tingling with excitement and nostalgia. Veronica--I mean Kylene is my dream character in contemporaries but OMG I hate the author so much right now! I need more! Come on!I'm fairly certain I thought everyone was guilty at one point or another's throughout the book and got to keep falling in love with Veronica Mars--i mean Kylene.

    I received an ARC of Dare You to Lie through Netgalley. All thoughts are my own. Mystery books are not my typical genre so I was initially worried I wasn't going to enjoy this story, but I'm so glad I gave it a chance because I absolutely love it.Kylene is such a badass character! I'm obsessed with her and her wit and sarcasm. The characters in Dare You to Lie felt so real and it made me never want to stop reading even though I forced myself to g...

    4.5 starsDare You to Lie is definitely a book for fans of Veronica Mars, Pretty Little Liars and Riverdale. I loved the dark and mysterious vibe this book gave us.

    If you like badass girls who take zero shit, plots chock full of scandal and snark, and a friendship worthy of Buffy/Willow/Xander (without the supernatural baddies), then you're going to ADORE this book. DARE YOU TO LIE is a furiously fast-paced introduction to what better become a series!

  • Paula Phillips
    I love my mysteries as much as I love my romances and this one drew me in as the author K.A Tucker had mentioned on the cover two of my favorite series - Riverdale and Veronica Mars. I also have an infinity for Teen girl detective like characters. I have to admit though that the main character reminded me more of Veronica Mars and a bit like Jughead rather than the female characters of Riverdale as she had more bite and guts and didn't come off a...
  • Olivia (The Candid Cover)
    3.5 StarsDare You to Lie by Amber Lynn Natusch is an intense thriller in which multiple cases are being investigated at once. I enjoyed the concept and the main character, but I had some issues with the pacing. Overall, I still had an enjoyable experience with the book, and it is perfect to curl up with this fall.Full review on The Candid Cover

    *4.5 starsThank you to the publisher and to NetGalley for sending me a free advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review. I loved this. It was not at all what I was expecting but in the best way possible. I didn't realize that I needed a new mystery series in my life, but guess what? I did. The plot in this book is so heavy and dense but it somehow never feels at all overwhelming. I've seen other reviewers compare it to Veronica Mars, b...

    Dare You to Lie is ONE OF US IS LYING meets Veronica Mars with an endearingly smart-mouthed protagonist, a well-developed cast of lovable side characters, and a looming sense of danger. This was fun, tense...unputdownable!

    *I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*3.5 stars I will admit, I almost did not finish this book. The writing style doesn't mesh with me. It feels too fast and the dialogue is always full of sarcasm and Ky talking big. It isn't until I made the connection to Veronica Mars that I started getting into it more. I loved that show and since these main characters are so similar, why couldn't I just l...

    This was a 3.5 for me, but I rounded up because I want to continue on with the series, it definitely ended up drawing me in.Kylene is obnoxious. She has some superiority-hero complexes. She does not think her crap stinks, that is for sure. Her speech verbiage is also off-putting. Not like any high school student I ever met. I really struggled with the beginning of the book. While I wanted to know the story, I did not want to read about Kylene at ...

    So excited for this one!
  • Aimie
    DNF @34%The first chapter was promising, it was well written and had a plot that was not only set up well but seemed capable of holding a reader's attention. However, my opinion of this book quickly changed as I continued to read (and later skim) it. The MC, Kylene, is juvenile at best, aggressive at worst. She has negative interactions with almost every person, including her friends, as well as trade insults with many more. If her behaviour and ...
