Nina Fischer has trust issues stemming from a rough childhood, and with the murder of the uncle who took her and her sister in and the reappearance of her mother, the secrets that begin to come out will make her question everything she thought she knew. And while the reader may think they know who she should trust, and want to shout at her not to trust others, this well plotted but more sedately paced story of suspense throws twists and more than one dead body in the way.
Kelly Irvin’s Amish fiction is enjoyable, but if her debut in a new sub-genre is anything to go on, her Romantic Suspense might be even better. With an intriguing premise and characters that will hold the reader’s interest, Tell Her No Lies blends murder, betrayal, and mortal danger into a story of healing, faith, and a blossoming love.
Recommended for fans of Romantic Suspense with a faith element.

From the publisher:
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.
