    This was a new to me author and I'm so glad I read this one! I felt like this was a nice new voice for romantic suspense. It was also a good opportunity to remind readers that addictions come in many forms and with many consequences. I always appreciate when a book has a message that goes a little deeper.I did feel like there were a lot of characters to keep track of in this story. It wasn't terrible, but I think if Irvin had added even one more ...

    Tell Her No Lies is the first book I have read by Kelly Irvin and I firstly want to say how pleased I am that she has attained her dream, as she mentions in her note at the end of, of publishing suspense. I have read lots of psychological thrillers, suspense, crime, and mystery books. This kept my interest throughout and it was so refreshing to read a book which did not contain swearing to distract and stunt my reading. I look forward to...

    *4.5 stars*Kelly Irvin is a new-to-me author but this book certainly left me wanting to read more! It was fast-paced and packed with plenty of suspense from cover to cover. I liked how the romance was weaved into the story in a way that was more believable and not forced or cheesy. It didn't take me long to devour the entire book.Confession: I am not a huge fan of Hallmark romance. It's not to say I don't watch any of the movies (especially aroun...

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. I was excited to receive this book. I love a good murder mystery. This book was based on an interesting concept but it really could have used more character development. The main people were developed okay but I never really had a strong feeling toward anyone in this book. The writer mother or the military si...

    3.5 starsTell Her No Lies was a story that got better as I continued to read. The story started without much backstory and I felt like I had to try to figure out what was all going on, which was a little frustrating. Once I got further into the story, I started to really enjoy it and I liked suspense aspect as well.Even though there was romance in Tell Her No Lies, I didn't feel like it was a main focus and maybe that is why I didn't care about t...

    2.5 starsThe story focuses on Nina Fischer, who was adopted years ago by her uncle. She finds him murdered in their house, and in trying to figure out who is responsible for his death, Nina uncovers some of her uncle’s secrets. Irvin is best known for her Amish-themed novels, but this one is a romantic suspense. There are a number of characters, and it sometimes felt like there were too many. Nina is fully developed, but that isn’t the case w...

But as the book progresses we realize it was all a carefully crafted illusion which was about to implode. Trying to stay one step ahead of the police , Nina with the help of her best friend Aaron,...

    [3,5/5 stars]Nina's adoptive father is murdered and she is the prime suspect."Tell her no lies" is my first read from Kelly Irvin. This Christian romantic suspense novel is fast paced and keeps you guessing for the whole time. Though the writing is fluid and easy, I didn't feel connected with the characters because I think they weren't enough developed. Despite of this fact, the plot is very suspenseful and the ending unexpected. [I received an A...
