About the Book
When investigative journalist Reagan McAdams discovers her new husband is part of an international crime family, she flees Paris with their newborn and returns to her childhood home in New Hampshire to gather enough money to disappear forever. She’ll do whatever it takes to protect her son from his criminal father.
He never quit loving her.
Rae’s first love, Brady Thomas, discovers she’s home and in trouble. She won’t tell him what’s going on, but he’s a detective. He’ll figure it out. He’s going to protect her and her son, whether she wants his help or not.
Her enemy nears.
Rae would love nothing more than to fall into Brady’s arms, to allow him to protect her and her son, but getting involved with him will only put Brady on harm’s way. When Rae’s husband closes in, she has to decide what—and whom—she’ll sacrifice to save her son.

In My Opinion
If you like a intense suspense with high stakes, Convenient Lies is a book you should consider picking up.
Rachel/Reagan/Rae makes the difficult choice to leave her husband when she discovers some disturbing things. Believing she’s covered her tracks, she returns to her grandmother’s home in Nutfield. But plans don’t as well as she hoped.
While this story did sag a little bit in the middle, and Rae gets a little wishy-washy crying on Brady’s shoulder one minute and deciding she’s going to do everything on her own the next, the ending is well worth hanging in there. It’s not quite what I expected but definitely satisfying.
Readers get a little bit of a feel for the town and a few of the people who live there (more so from Rae’s memories than her present as she’s hiding out). And the romance is a slow burn that is patiently fanned over the course of the story.
