    Anastasia Phoenix has always felt on the outs wherever she's been since her scientists parents have moved the family all around the world over the years. When they say there is going to be yet another move Anastasia is of course upset and refuses to speak to them as they leave on yet another trip but little did she know that would be the last time she would see them when a horrible accident happens. Time passes with Anastasia living with her olde...

    Mini review:I received this e-arc via Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. DNFThis was very frustrating. I did not like Anastasia at all. In fact I didn’t like any of the characters. It was a fast read. But honestly I didn’t even like the direction the plot was heading. I do not recommend.
  • Chandra Claypool (wherethereadergrows)
    What a fun little romp! This had all the makings of the YA thrillers that we come to know - kick ass girl who can fight and hold her own, a family full of secrets, a mysterious foreign sexy guy to fawn over and action packed scenes. What I did like about this one was that she still made Anastasia human. When her sister is presumed dead, she didn't immediately go into super hero mode but wallowed in grief for a while before hitting up super spy st...

    I have to say I’m so impressed by this story – what an enthralling teen suspense and mystery where there are so many lies being told that you’re not quite sure what the truth might be – and even if you really want to know it! Instead of a James Bond type adventure, this one has Anastasia Phoenix as the heroine who has none of his gadgets but still encounters plenty of danger, mystery and suspense. It is the first in a new series and I can...

    While this books did take me a bit to feel fully invested, about 80 pages, I ultimately loved it! It has the same face pacing as The DaVinci Code and we were spirited all over Europe on this epic adventure. This was a fun who done it that was pretty good at keeping me guessing. Will totally be continuing on with book two!
  • Lori Murray
    Wow I really loved this book a lot as soon as I started it, I was drawn in to the story. I really loved Anastasia a lot. I was like you go girl, a lot throughout the book. I really love the character of Marcus, the love interest in the book, I thought he was pretty awesome, especially to Anastasia. I didn't care for Anastasia's sister Keira at first but I still didn't want anything to happen to her. I did really like Charlotte, Keira's friend, sh...

    WOW!! This book took me by surprise. James Bond, Jason Bourne and Spy Kids all rolled into one action-packed, suspenseful, mystery book. WOW!!Where to start this?? Action - LOTS!! Suspense - edge of my seat when things really started rolling!! Mystery - I was going WTF a lot and trying to figure out how everything and everyone tied together, if they even did.

  • LadyTechie
    Proof of Lies by Diana Rodriguez Wallace is a completely awesome, exciting book. I received a free copy from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Proof of Lies fits right in with one of my favorite topics to read about, in fiction and non-fiction, espionage and spies! Anastasia and her sister Keira are both in a "funk" even years after losing their parents to a car crash. Move after move. They move to new locations...
  • Kimberly (Book Swoon)
    My rating: 3.5 StarsProof of Lies by Diana Rodriguez Wallach is filled with tension and suspense as a whirlwind-of-a-mystery unfolds.I love books that feature a conspiracy in them and that is exactly what this book gives you. Plenty of action, twists, and a mystery set in Rome for a thrilling setting. If you like globetrotting and intrigue with a touch of romance in your reads, then you may just want to take a look at Proof of Lies. Told through ...

    Proof of Lies is what’s missing in YA and exactly what I’ve been searching for. An adrenaline rush of mystery and danger, an intriguing and twisty plot, and characters that keep you invested, Proof of Lies is at the top of my 2017 reads. The mystery is epic. It sucks you in and keeps you invested. I was dying to know what happened to Keira. The clues are all there and they’re tricky. Anastasia is basically sifting through trash to find gold...

    NetGalley copy in exchange for an honest review.The Plot __The start of this book is great. It lures the reader in, it grips them by the throat and does not let them go until it’s over. I read it in one sitting, because it was so burning, intense and compelling that I couldn’t stop! I needed to know!The Characters __Anastasia is a great main character. Her voice is nice to read, as well as realistic, in terms of character traits and temper. S...

    2.5 “Spies, Murder and Mysteries” StarsARC via NetGalley.Thank you, Entangled Teen.Well, this didn't go as I was expecting.Sure, a mystery book is supposed to NOT go as the reader expects and all, but it's also supposed to keep the reader entertained and wanting to read more from start to finish, right? That was my main problem with this book: it just didn't hook me.I started Proof of Lies weeks ago and I kept putting it aside and getting dis...

    Growing up Anastasia and her sister Keira moved from country to country with their parents as they were world-renowned engineers and co-owned a company called Dresden. They became part of a club known as Dresden Kids which are nomadic children whose parents move around every few months, and if they are lucky, then they can live in a place longer than six months. Boston was supposed to be their last stop, and their new home as Keira had just start...

    This reminded me so much of the embassy row books (which is a very good thing since I like Ally Carter very much), very thrilling and mysterious, looking forward to see what Wallach has planned next for Anastasia. 4 stars ✨ -Reagan

  • Jolene Haley
    Okay, this book was awesome for a number of reasons.1. It’s a girl spy book. HELL TO THE YES AMIRIGHT. There are far too many spy books out there, and not enough girl spy books and the fact that this was the case with Proof of Lies made me very happy.2. Travel: I don’t know about you but I don’t have the cash to travel to Italy. But here I was, sitting in my dreary tan cubicle at lunch time, and I was transported away to the beautiful count...

    Proof of Lies was an engaging, suspenseful read. The fact that it was a YA Suspense made it all the more fun for me!I loved all the mystery about Anastasia's parents, but I hated the fact that it wasn't revealed in this book. I really hope it is in the sequel!As for the characters, Anastasia was a really relatable character. The way her feelings for her sister switched because of the circumstances totally made sense. She wasn't a devout, neither ...

    When is the movie coming out?? Proof of Lies was not only a great YA thriller it could definitely hold up to any adult fiction audience as well! I could not put it down! The writing is great and the story is interesting, especially in the world we currently live in now! I’m looking forward to seeing how much more bad-ass Anastasia Phoenix can become! I love that the story takes the reader on a journey to different parts of the world. I definite...

  • Claire (bookscoffeeandrepeat)
    If this sounds interesting to you, then by all means... do consider reading this book. I don't exactly remember when I wished for this on netgalley. My wish had been granted on the day of the book's release. I was so excited to read this book, unfortunately my expectations had not been met.I know that I'm in the minority, but hear me out. The book wasn't bad. In fact, it was very interesting. I went through the 'spy novel' phase right after readi...
  • Holly
    To say I loved this novel would be to sell it short. I would give this 10 stars if I could. I fell into the story from the very beginning, and I stayed lost in it the entire time I was reading. At something like 400 pages, it was nice and meaty, and the plot took its time playing out, which is something I prize in a book (I can’t stand a rushed story). Although details were kind of slowly revealed, the reading experience was basically an adrena...

    This book was a fast-paced, action-packed, adrenalin ride that dragged me right into the dark heart of political espionage.I was on the edge of my seat from the very beginning, and stayed, glued with suspense, each step of the way as Anastasia journeyed to find her sister, and ultimately uncover the truth that would change her life forever.I can only imagine the fear that tore through Ana at the start of this book and it was heart-breaking to wat...
