Dead Women Tell No Lies by Nora LeDuc

I was given this R2R on LibraryThing Members Giveaway in exchange for my honest review.

What happen's when you have very real dreams of your twin, crying out for help as they are getting murder? First you panic, and call them. When they don't answer, you panic more and call the police.

What will the police think when they get a strange call? Maybe they will think you're crazy or it's a prank call. Maybe they will think you are a jealous twin who killed their
Rose Blue knew the instant her twin sister Dahlia took her last breath, an unexplained link between them overpowered her with the knowledge she would never have another moment together again. With Dahlia's disappearance, Rose has become anxious she wants answers, she follows the small clues her sister is translating to her to help find the murderer.

Detective Luke Lennox has seen it all in his career, but he can honestly say he is skeptical when it comes to Rose Blue. He doesn't know if she is a
Nora LeDuc’s DEAD WOMEN TELL NO LIES tells us of Rose coming to New Hampshire to find her twin sister’s, Dahlia, murderer. Dahlia had stolen funds from their store and left after a huge fight with Rose. Things were said that Rose wishes were unsaid. Dahlia communicates with Rose from beyond the grave trying to point her towards the murderer but the communication is not clear.

DEAD WOMEN TELL NO LIES is a solid mystery. I did not have the murderer on my list of suspects at all. And believe me, ev
When I first began this novel, I felt that it was going to be more "paranormal" or "psychic" than I wanted - and I was wrong! Sure.. Rose does have "visions" of her sister Dahlia (especially of her death), but instead of being the main focus of the novel as I feared it would be, it was only a small part of the overall plot. I enjoyed how the author kept Rose's "psychic twin" abilities to a minimum when concerning the acutal poilive investigation (although they proved to be helpful) and instead f ...more
I really enjoyed this book. I received a copy from the author through LibraryThing, and I was a little skeptical with the first few grammatical and typographical mistakes. However, they did not impede my understanding and I did not find anything past the halfway point in the book. The first two chapters were a little hard to figure out, but once I got into the plot I realized that the story was going to be in a third person omniscient style. I really enjoyed the author's use of this method. It w ...more

** I got a copy of this book from the author through early reviewer program for an exchange of an honest review. That in no way has influenced my review **

Being a twin, I had to read this book. I enjoy any book about twins especially a murder mystery book that involves twins. So of course I could not resist requesting a copy of this book to read. The book starts off sooooo suspenseful and thrilling I just could not put the book down. My first reaction was WOW! Then the book slo

Rose and Dahlia are twins that share a jewelry store together. I don't know many twins so reading how connected they are to each other is heart warming! Rose starts getting visions that something tragic will happen to Dahlia. Scared out of her wits, she calls her sister and no one picks up the phone. Panicking like a madwoman, she goes to the police to report a missing person. There she meets Detective Luke Lennox (insert rawr factor) who's very weary of her. Dahlia decides to pop up out of no w ...more

I started getting tense on the very first page of this story, and it didn’t stop until the very end. It was fascinating, frightening and unique. This is the story of twin sisters who have a strong bond between them. Rose Blue always seemed to know when something was wrong with her sister Dahlia Blue. This last time she was devastated when Dahlia was murdered.

Rose travels to Ledgeview, NH from her home in Vermont because she has to find out what happened and why and who did it. She meets up with
I received this book as an early read review.

I was really interested in this book from the synopsis posted with the giveaway. I think this story has a lot of potential. I would start getting engrossed in the plot and then there would be something that would pull me back out. The flow of the story felt choppy. I don't know how to explain it with out giving examples and that would ruin the story for others. I think with some more editing and rewrites this story could be huge.
The suspense drove me nuts and at the same time forced me to continue reading.
I loved the chemistry between Luke and Rose. Luke's a bit of a control freak but that's ok.
There are so many twists and turns, and I had lots of suspicions about lots of different characters, but in the end it was a bit of a surprise (even though a part of me expected it). All in all, it was an interesting read.

P.S. Frank and Luke have to be my favorite characters.

What is the link between twins? What binds their souls so much to let one of the two share the terror of the other? Dahlia and Rose, same features, different characters and ways of life, but only one invisible bond. The author leads us to discover it in a spiral of increasing suspense until the final unpredictable. Must-read
Linda Nelson
Excellent cozy mystery - suspense. I was kept guessing about who the killer was all the way to the end of the book. I had my suspicions, but I was kept on the edge of my seat waiting for the killer to be revealed.
I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. It was quite suspenseful and kept me guessing during the whole read. Nora has a great sense of storyline. I can't wait for her next book!
Danielle Taylor
I really didn't like this book. It sounded interesting but I just couldn't get into the story. Mostly because I never really "got" Rose. I like suspense novels with a paranormal aspect but this book couldn't decide whether she had a "twin link" or she could see ghosts or if she was partially psychic. It was just confusing. Luke was a decent character but it never explained why he was so willing to believe Rose and the romance between the two was Blah. I honestly, didn't care who the killer was b ...more
