From the first page, tension sizzled as Max meets Rose after being jailed many years for her sister's murder. Rose is not sure what to make of Max, but all the unresolved feelings make it hard for her to ignore him.

Add an overprotective sheriff and a town full of potential suspects, and we're off on a wild ride to figure out who REALLY murdered Rose's sister and who is after Rose right now.

The action is fast and nonstop, gluing me to the pages until the wee hours of the night. What I liked about

Murderous Lies, the latest installment from author, Chantel Rhondeau is my first foray into the romantic suspense genre. I enjoyed the adventure.

Max Kensington, falsely accused of a string of murders, is finally absolved of his crimes and released from prison. It’s been a tough eight years but returning home is no walk in the park, receiving a less than stellar reception from his

3 1/2 stars for Murderous Lies. I really enjoyed reading Murderous Lies by Chantel Rhondeau. This is my first book by this author. I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised.

Let me start by saying that my eyes hurt because I couldn't put this book down until I found out who the murderer was. I loved how I suspected different people throughout the story. Poor Max sent to jail for a crime he didn't commit & wasn't released until almost 8 years later when someone finally stepped up with testimony that cleared him. Then there's poor Rose who loved Max but lost her trust in him when he was charged with killing her sister. Will Rose finally believe in Max's innocence? ...more

What a truly amazing novel!! I was hooked and engaged from the very beginning.

With such an in-depth plot that takes many twists and turns, and strong character development, the reader is easily caught up in the story and has a hard time disengaging if necessary.

"Murderous Lies," is a definitely a "not able to put down read." I put it down once, when it was so late at night I could barely keep my eyes open. But I was right back at it as I soon as I awoke. I couldn't wait to see how it ended...

Max and Rosemary are still in love but realize they can not move ahead with him branded as a murderer. Will Max and Rosemary be able to find out the truth before either one of them get

Another great book by Chantel! When Max gets released from prison, he immediately goes to find Rose. Max was accused of murdering Rose's sister, but he gets acquitted when new evidence comes to light. Rose had given into the town gossip that Max committed the murder, but after being with him again she is not so sure. I just loved this book, and Max and Rose were great together. Even though it was a quick read, there was great character development. Very enjoyable!

This story is full of suspense, murders and lies. A perfect title for the book. An amazing cover with an amazing story inside it. Expect the unexpected. You can feel the characters inside the book while reading it, making this book more and more astounding.
A perfect story for mystery reader who loves discovery. This story makes me forget everything in the outer world.

A 5.5 out of 5 stars if I can give it.

I have to say that this is one of my favorite books. I was hooked from the first page. It's very well written and the characters were very well developed. This is one book that I know I will be able to read again and again. This is my first book by Chantel Rhondeau and it wont be my last.
