Three Truths and a Lie

Happy Monday!  On this day (January 11) in history Amelia Earhart became the first person to fly solo from Hawaii to California, a three day snowfall began in Los Angeles, and Alabama seceded from the Union. These are just a few examples of what happened in the past.  You can find more events that happened on January 11 on Wikipedia.  Today I am reviewing a great mystery.

Three Truths and a Lie by Lisa Gardner is a wonderful mystery novella.  Detective D.D. Warren has been asked to speak at the yearly Writers Police Academy in Wisconsin.  She is to provide details on what a homicide detective really does during a day (or a case).  The speech is titled Guide to Policing.  Her husband, Alex Wilson talked her into coming to the conference.  There is an old game called three truths and a lie.  She is going to tell the details about a case and the class has to guess what the lie is (and we get to figure out who the killer is). 

Three Truths and a Lie is wonderful.  I read it straight through.  It is well-written and engaging.  It has a great flow (pace).  I thought the mystery was easy to solve but I loved it.  The author provided great clues for the reader.  I give Three Truths and a Lie 5 out of 5 stars.  This was my first book by Lisa Gardner, but I will definitely be reading more of her books (especially about D.D. Warren).  Lisa Gardner gives us an interesting character.

The next book to be released by Lisa Gardner is Find Her.  It will be out on February 9, 2016.  I received a complimentary copy of Three Truths and a Lie from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I am currently reading Warwyck's Wife by Rosalind Laker (it is an historical romance).  I hope you have a wonderful Monday!  Take care and Happy Reading!
