Wow! This woman’s brain and mad writing skills are amazing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This book was awesome. From the way she give us hints through the past about what is going on, she slowly draws you in and crafts this story that could be ripped from the headlines.

In a time where politics are constantly in our conversations, this book is a timely story that is twisted and a bit dark, but so damn good!

We all have that best friend that pushes us to do things we may not want to. Break down the barrie

What a great little mind twister this was. I enjoy following along a story where you have to piece together a puzzle and Hailey's retelling of her past had you doing exactly that.

This reads almost like a journal but better. She starts out the chapters in present time with a little bit of thought that has you wondering what is about to come, then she reverts to the past. You then read the past as if it is the present time. I'm not a big fan of time jumping back and forth but the way this story w

Unlike anything else Lisa Renee Jones has written. Is a lie a lie if you believe it to be true? That is the ultimate question!

If you are a fan of Lisa Renee Jones you need to throw out every preconceived notion you have before you being this book, this is not a Romantic Suspense, not erotica, there's no hearts and flowers or rainbows and sunshine in this story. This is totally different from anything she has written before, it's even different from her Lilah Love Series.

I have read a couple of Lisa Renee Jones's novels in the past and found they weren't for me as I don't find romantic suspense particularly appealing. However, this, her first foray into full thriller territory was much more enjoyable and was a surprisingly compulsive read. That said, there is some romance but the main bulk of the plot is suspense-based. The writing engages you pretty much straight away and it's fast-paced and immersive with more than a few twists in the tale along the way. I mus ...more

Intricate and complex, A Perfect Lie was mesmerizing. With a focus on the mystery, Jones gives us a story more in the vein of her Lilah Love Series. The web she constructed was tightly woven, giving us so much to think about. The questions kept piling up and with an unreliable narrator, I had a hard time putting the pieces together. I enjoyed the contrast between Hailey’s vulnerability and strength. Her flaws made her even more endearing. I was concerned for her and wondering how things would pl

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

This was my first Lisa Renee Jones book, and it won't be my last. This suspense storyline kept my wondering all the way to the end as to what was going to happen.

I was thrown as to what was actually happening with our main character. She was probably a little too whingey at some points, but for the most part, she was pretty easy to connect with and stay intrigued by.

****4.5 Stars**** This was a real page turner, full of mystery and suspense. It kept me wondering and guessing, through the whole book. Hailey played the part of the perfect political daughter, the future First Daughter, whose entire life has been in the public eye. But there are secrets and mysteries surrounding her, questions that need answering, things that don't make sense or add up. It kept me reading almost non stop, I had to know what really happened, what the story was. I would definitel ...more

***4 Stars***

I don’t typically read straight mystery/suspense novels, normally they fall under the romantic suspense umbrella, but the cover (the one on NG) and the blurb ~ the way it fucked with my mind (which was kind of cool considering it was just the blurb) peaked my interest and I have to say that this read totally did my mind in (in the best of ways, of course) and left me in that weird and wonderful realm of being satisfied and yet still questioning what was truth and what was the lie.

Lisa Renee Jones is known for her steamy, complex novels with larger than life characters and their seductive relationships. But A Perfect Lie was a whole new level of complicated. A psychological thriller that will have your mind racing with its twists and turns and that will leave you breathless, I had a very difficult time putting this intriguing story down.

I'm a bit on the fence with this one. At times there are glimpses of the brilliance of The Secret Life of Amy Benson and Careless Whispers which both had memory issues in the heroine that were amazing, but I felt there were too many loose ends for this to get a 5 star rating.

While I enjoyed the overall story, there were times that I felt the 'now' glimpses were taking away from the main story. This story was told as a series of flashbacks intermixed with more of a present day type story telling

I wasn't sure what to expect walking into this thriller but whichever way, I somehow felt myself surprised with this read. At first I wasn't sure if it was going to be my cup of tea as it starts with an almost journal-ish like start where we are in Hailey's mind as she starts to tell us her story. It's when we get into this story that things pick up and hooks me.

She's an unreliable narrator who keeps losing pockets of time that seems to correspond to drinking a drink or two only so of course the

First off I want to say that I am a Lisa Renee Jones fan and have been since the very first book I read. She has always been my "one click no matter what" author so of course I didn't hesitate to read this one even though it is very different from her "normal" books being a psychological thriller and while it took me a minute to switch gears so to speak from what I normally read from her to this one, her writing never disappoints. This one definitely keeps you enthralled from the beginning and m ...more

“Bad memories take up good time that should have been shared.”

From the moment I picked up this book, I was instantly swept up in the web of A Perfect Lie. I was totally intriuged by Hailey’s story was desperate to find some answers. I had no idea what was really going on with her; only that I had to know more. The deeper I fell into Hailey’s story the more lost I was. Just as I thought I was putting the puzzle together, the rug would once again be pulled out from me.

It has been awhile since I've read a book by this author. I'm glad I took the plunge and read A Perfect Lie. I loved how the author set the stage for the reader. There was so many lies, betrayals, and spilled blood.

I loved Hailey's character as being the future first daughter. I didn't know what role she played in the lies being told. This alone had me flipping the pages faster.

This was my first book from Lisa Renee Jones. It’s a suspense / Thriller read which is one of my favorite genres but unfortunately this one miss the mark for me. I couldn’t feel any connection with the main character Hayley Anne Monroe.

A Perfect Lie is the story of the future first daughter, Hailey, as she struggles with her strained relationship with her father, the pressure associated with a family member running for the presidential office, and the mysterious disappearance of her best friend. Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy A Perfect Lie as much as I wanted to because of the slow pace of the novel and a rather ineffective main character.

And our author is back in force with a signature book! Lisa Renee Jones is known for her gift of weaving suspenseful, thrilling stories that keep you at the edge of your seats. Her plot twists keep us invested in her stories, none like what she is offering us with this book ~ A Perfect Lie.

An interesting thought-provoking diversion…

The subject of this story is Hailey Anne Monroe, she’s twenty-eight years old, the daughter of a ruthless politician with presidential aspirations and from the time of her birth she’s been groomed or better said “programmed” to be the perfect “First Daughter”. She has a story to relate that can only now be made public as those most intricately involved with the exception of herself are dead.
