The Lies She Told Denise Grover Swank read online review & book description:

The fifth book in the USA Today Wall Street Journal bestselling Carly Moore series.

It’s been a week since Carly Moore’s friend Jerry was run off the road and killed, and the sheriff’s department has already struck out on leads. She’s not about to sit back and let it go, but the last thing she wants is to endanger anyone else. Besides, as she learned long ago, problems come in threes.

A mysterious woman causes a ruckus in the tavern where Carly works and leaves behind a note: We’ve got some unfinished business, Carly Moore. I’ll be in touch. The stranger looks like trouble, and Carly knows it means nothing good. Then, on the heels of that encounter, she gets shocking news: the crime syndicate her father co-ran has been taken down by the authorities.

She’s not foolish enough to think her father has been neutralized, but she realizes she needs to act against him soon if she wants to stop hiding.

The deeper Carly digs into her family’s past, the more dirt she finds. But lies are told for a reason, and there are people around her who are willing to kill to keep the truth hidden.

  • Can’t wait for “Moore”

    One of the many reasons I am a fan of Carly and this series is because of the incredible character development that we witness with each installment, and I think Carly truly comes into her own in The Lies She Told. There is a LOT of outward vulnerability that we don’t often see. She is open with her love for Marco and Hank, and her anger. She’s outspoken and forceful. She stands up for herself. You can’t help but be proud of the person she is becoming. And while I wasn’t convinced that Marco was the best love interest for our girl, this book showcases their love and respect for each other and you can’t help but get on board! I loved the various plots the happened within The Lies She Told. It kept me on my toes and I was never quite sure which way to look. Carly sought vengeance for Jerry, got to the bottom of Hank’s supposed fortune, and confronted her past all while continuing to work towards taking down Bart. The ending, while wrapping up some things, definitely left me wanting more!!
  • Great!

    Carly Moore continues to be one of my top mystery series of all time! The Lies She Told is so good, full of murder, suspense, and romance. Between a mysterious woman visiting Carly at work and leaving behind an ominous note, along with the news that Hardshaw has been taken down, Carly knows that more trouble and surprises are in her near future. I just adore these characters, and with each new release it feels like “going home” again. I love Carly and Hank’s special relationship, and that this book provides a deeper look into his past. The Lies She Told is an absolute page turner that you will not want to put down!

    If you enjoy a good mystery with a love story, this series is for you. This is a book that made me think. It kept me on my toes to keep track of all the players in the game as a lot were thrown in but they had important ties to each other. This kept me intrigued with the constant doubt in others. Not knowing who is there to help and who secretly has an ulterior motive. It was easy to get caught up in Carly’s world again and with each book, we come closer to wrapping up the the story without an anxious cliffhanger. There is intrigue on what will come next but won’t drive you insane while you wait. Or maybe it will... Another puzzle piece solved and can’t wait for the rest of the pieces to fall into place.

    I love the Carly Moore Series and this book did not disappoint. A new character arrives on the scene and sets in motion a series of unpredictable events. It's hard to know who to trust, because for each truth that is revealed, more questions arise and secrets are unearthed. Denise Grover Swank is a master at realistic and insightful dialogue. The writing is superb with layered character building and steady pacing leaving readers on the edge of their seat! I can't wait to find out what happens next in Drum.
  • Riveting and full of suspense!

    Amazing! This latest installment of the Carly Moore series had me on the edge of my seat the entire read. It’s full of suspense, some romance, and a touch of humor. This book has it all. Tired of hiding, but also questioning who she can trust, the walls are caving in and time is ticking for Carly as she moves forward in her fight to take down Bart Drummond and her father. So many questions and not enough answers. I love Carly and Marco’s relationship. He makes her laugh and forget her worries but most of all he makes her feel seen and above all loved. That right there is the epitome of the perfect book boyfriend. Hank is still cranky but lovable. We even get a visit with the dynamic duo of Roberta and Gladys. Roberta is my spirit animal and I can’t wait to be as onery as her!
  • Amazing!

    Amazing job once again! I’m a long time fan of Denise! She her writing is so descriptive that she grabs you right from the beginning and doesn’t let go till the end. You are invested in the story as much as the characters.

    I was very excited for this book. Carly has a lot going on. Can she trust the people she has grown to love? Does she need to move on? who is the enemy? These questions went through my mind while reading this book. I will leave those for you to figure out. By the end of this story we find that there is a lot of talk in this town. How it is used is going to surprise you. I love Carly and Marco together. They have such a cute, growing love. I love how they stick with each other and are learning to trust each other. They are trying to tell the truth always no matter what. This story shows you a different side of a lot of people. I hope some we learn to trust later on and some I hope Carly kicks to the curb. You are not going to be disappointed in this story. It was amazing. Lots of old drama and new will keep you guessing till the end.
