Synopsis: Lies can be very dangerous and deadly little things.
Almost four years after Laney Matthews survived a brush with death at the hands of Robbie Jameson, she has finally picked up the pieces of her life and started over. She’s made new friends, began dating again, attended countless therapy sessions, and is about to graduate in the spring from Blackburn University. Ever since that fateful night, Laney has tried to surround herself with positivity, and so far it’s been successful … but that’s all about to come crashing down.
When Laney receives news of Robbie’s release from prison, her bubble of security bursts and she begins to withdraw from everyday life. Her friends come to the rescue with a fun winter break getaway in order to clear their heads and shake off the end of semester finals. It’s here that Laney comes face to face again with Brent Lyles, the one true love that got away, and she begins to realize maybe he’s the exact thing that’s been missing in her crazy life.
Something’s amiss at the sprawling rental property though, and when things take a deadly turn, Laney and her friends are forced to fight for their lives. Has Robbie returned to finish what he started years ago? And is Laney prepared to stand up to her past demons once and for all?
The key to her survival this time though will be trust—a feeling she hasn’t embraced in quite some time.
Review: 4.5 Stars - Two Little Lies by author Adam Kunz takes readers on a thrilling ride in this creepy mystery that will have you on the edge of your seat and jumping at every little sound you hear around you.
So, I just have to say that this is the second title I've read from Adam and I loved One Tiny Secret and couldn’t wait to read anything and everything this amazingly creative author writes next. So, as soon as I hear that he was working on Two Little Lies I jumped at the chance to read and review it as soon as possible.
Both titles are prefect reads for those who like a little scary. Adam has a knack for writing a multi layered plot with many twists and turns and I have nothing but praise for how he keeps the twists and turns coming. Seriously, I have no idea how he keeps it all straight or how his mind works but I was extremely impressed with this title.
His characters are entertaining and his writing flows and moves from page to page with ease. I could have read this title in one sitting if not for the fact that I was reading this during the middle of the night, in the dark and felt like I was being watched which made me put the book down to finish it in the light of day. Do I get scared easily? It depends, however Adam intertwines enough realistic issues, emotions and terror that it forced me to put the book down until I could read in daylight hours.
Speaking of his characters, Laney and her friends are just looking for a much needed break from college life and their studies. A chance for escape to an isolated cabin during winter, and before holiday break it sounds like the perfect place to get away. However Laney is trying to come to terms with her life and the recent release from prison of someone from her past she'd love to never have to think about or worry about again. Her friends don't know the whole story and she'd rather not talk about her past and move on into the future, to feel safe and happy in her life. She also comes face to face with a second person from the past that she has unfinished business with that she wants to deal with on her terms.
The secondary characters are a great cast to accompany Laney during this time in her life. Good, bad and ugly they are stuck together in this when things don't go quiet as planned.
I seriously LOVED this title and I think everyone should read it. It's a “New Adult” title with romance laced in with the terror and Adam does a wonderful job taking all the elements of his story and weaving a novel that would be perfect for the big screen. I'm a HUGE fan of this author and he'll forever be someone I will be watching with bated breath while I wait for his next wonderful piece of story telling. If you like a little scary, grab onto this one with both hands and before you know it you'll be sucked in and wondering what the heck is going on. Lots to love about this title, so don't miss out. Happy Reading!
