I'm a romance book girl at heart, but I LOVE a good psychological thriller. A.R. Torre has a gift for weaving these dark, twisted, suspenseful stories. The Good Lie is no exception. I was hooked from the first page and didn't put the book down until I was finished. The story revolves around Gwen, a psychiatrist who treats people with the urge to kill, and Robert, an attorney who lost his son to a serial killer. There are so many twists and turns to this story that you won't want to stop reading until all of the questions are answered. It's pretty violent and gory, I think Torre may have been a crime scene investigator in her former life with the details she gives. The way she slowly puts the puzzle together one agonizing piece at a time is absolute perfection. The Good Lie is a MUST-READ for fans of this genre.

Killing is the easy part. The act of living - of finding happiness in life - that's the hard part.

"I did not saddle him up and ride him like a prize stallion," I said wryly. "It was more like an arthritic grandma on the Tilt-A-Whirl."

Six teens murdered. A suspect behind bars. A desperate father. In a case this shadowy, the truth is easy to hide.

Psychiatrist Dr. Gwen Moore is an expert on killers. She’s spent a decade treating California’s most depraved predators and unlocking their motives—predators much like the notorious Bloody Heart serial killer, whose latest teenage victim escaped and then identified local high school teacher Randall Thompson as his captor. The case against Thompson as the Bloody Heart Killer is damning—and closed, as far as Gwen and the media are concerned. If not for one new development…

Defense attorney Robert Kavin is a still-traumatized father whose own son fell prey to the BH Killer. Convinced of Thompson’s innocence, he steps in to represent him. Now Robert wants Gwen to interview the accused, create a psych profile of the killer and his victims, and help clear his client’s name.

As Gwen and Robert grow closer and she dives deeper into the investigation, grave questions arise. So does Gwen’s suspicion that Robert is hiding something—and that he might not be the only one with a secret.


My romance novel obsession started when I was a kid reading my Mom's Jackie Collins novels. I love the steamy romances and I like my men to be alpha males and my ladies to be quirky and strong. I need the HEA but it’s OK if it takes 2 or 3 or 10 books to get there. Lee Nightingale is my forever, it's Chase Abandonato...for now.

I’m a Mom of 2 daughters, 4 cats and a dog, a travel junkie, cruising in particular, and a Disney fanatic. I love all things beach and all things books!
