Tell Her No Lies ~ Review

Tell Her No Lies
By Kelly Irvin

Nina Fischer is a photographer who uses her camera to capture moments that most would rather ignore. Her own past gives her a special empathy for the homeless. Having been abandoned to the streets by her mother Nina and her sister Jan know just how difficult such a life can be and not everyone has an uncle and aunt who would willingly take them in.

Uncle Geoffrey is the only Dad Nina and Jan have ever known and he is as tough on them as he is on his own son Trevor. But she knows he loves them, wanting them to be the best that they could be. When Nina discovers him in the early morning hours murdered she is understandably shocked - who could possibly want to kill him? Was it related to a case he presided over or was it a burglary gone wrong?

Unfortunately, Nina is suspect number one on Detective King's list of suspects. But Nina is determined to find the killer herself if the police aren't willing to look elsewhere. But as Nina looks for possible reasons as to why someone would target her Dad she learns she didn't know him as well as she thought she did. Could this other side of Geoffrey Fischer be the reason he died?

But Nina isn't the only one looking for answers and someone seems determined to keep the answers hidden. And they'll do anything to keep it hidden.

While dealing with all the emotional issues that her family is going through, Nina is also having to deal with just how she wants her future to proceed with her childhood friend Rick Zavala and her best friend Aaron McClure. Trust is something Nina has in short supply and well she isn't giving her heart away lightly.

This is an interesting book and Nina is just really fortunate that she didn't end up in jail with some of the stunts that she pulled - and she couldn't claim ignorance as an excuse for her deeds. I would have liked to have learned more about Detective Matt King, there were hints at incidents in his past that would have been interesting to learn more about.

Overall this was a fairly good read. There were a few scenes that seemed repetitive but it's similar to when one has to repeat the same story over again to various persons. Some characters were more likable than others like Aaron vs Rick. The latter half was more fast-paced and worth getting to. I'd say the main focus of this story is what is family and trust?

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher through their blogger program with no expectations other than that I offer my honest opinion ~ all thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:
Even the most admired families 
have secrets to hide . . .

Nina Fischer carries a camera wherever she goes—so she can view life through a filter. Safely. After her mother abandoned her to the streets, Nina has kept people at a distance, including her uncle, who adopted Nina and her sister. Wealthy and proud, he is a good man, a fair judge, and someone many in San Antonio admire.
But when he is murdered, and the detective assigned to the case accuses Nina of the crime, she knows she must act. She’s determined to use her journalism background to find the real killer. The two men in her life want to help, but can she trust them? She’s known Rick since they were children, but now he’s an attorney whose political aspirations seem more important than Nina’s tragic loss. And then there’s Aaron, a news videographer; using their friendship could break the biggest story of his career.
Following the evidence leads Nina on a journey of discovery into her father’s shocking masquerade as a law-abiding, family-loving Christian. Unlocking these secrets could prove fatal, but it’s the only way Nina will ever be able to trust love again.
Combining romance and suspense, bestselling author Kelly Irvin’s Tell Her No Lies is a high-stakes race for the truth.
