I purposely waited to request another review book when I saw that Terri Blackstock had a book on the list. Several years ago I read a few of her books and enjoyed all of them. Truth Stained Lies was not an exception to this. I was immersed in the story by page 5 and, even though I was pretty sure I knew who did it by chapter 6, I didn’t know why so I kept turning the pages.
Cathy Cramer, a former lawyer, now writes a commentary blog about high profile homicides. When her brother’s ex-wife is murdered and he becomes the main suspect, Cathy and her two sisters (one a stay-at-home mom and the other a part time taxi-driver) become part-time P.I.s to solve the crime. Because their brother’s story is so crazy, the police do not seem to be following any other leads so the sister, along with an ex-cop turned P.I., work to clear Jay’s name.
While I cared about the mystery and who killed the ex-wife and why, the true beauty of this story is the relationships. There is a lot going on with these three sisters in their relationships with each other, their relationships with other family members and friends and their relationships with God. You are rooting for these three sisters to come out stronger on the other side.
