I love to read a good mystery, and Where the Truth Lies is exactly the kind of mystery I enjoy reading. Instantly, I was drawn into the book and wondering, along with Casey, Luke, and Monah, “who dunit”? The plot had several twists and turns along the way and was intricately woven together to make a compelling mystery that left you guessing. Towards the end I knew “who dunit” but had yet to figure out the “where” and “why”. The ending is always the most fun to read when everything that was perpl ...more

This is rather a simplistic mystery. Casey Alexander's Aunt Lydia has disappeared. Everyone assumes she has committed susicide, but no one has found a body. It also doesn't appear that the local police are very interested in looking for a body. Casey meets Luke, a local hotie, who has befriended by Aunt Lyia for most of his life since his mother died. (How is these heroines come to town, meet the hotie and fall in love in a matter of days?) Aunt Lydia's roses are dying so Luke digs them up to re ...more

Where the Truth Lies has more twists that a bag of rotini. You won't guess the end of this quirky mystery, and when you get the answer to one clue, it merely opens the door to more secrets. The surprises keep coming right up to the end.

Well written, Ludwig and Mowery have blended their personal styles seamlessly in this fast-paced mystery. I'm looking forward to more from this talented team. Novel Reviews gives Where the Truth Lies a high recommendation.

I picked this up expecting a cozy mystery, I didn't realize it was a churchy book. I feel like that should be prominently displayed on the cover, not in small print under the bar code.

I had already started the story and was interested to find out why Aunt Liddy had committed suicide or been murdered so I skimmed though it. It was okay.

This is a good cozy mystery (although I had several "suspects" it kept me guessing until the end on the details). It also pointed me in the direction of a deeper trust and faith in God, so I especially appreciated that aspect . . . and the romance only helped make it more fun!

This was a pretty good book. Old secrets, family scandals, and til the end questions made it right up my alley!
