Inherent Lies by Alicia Anthony
Blood Secrets #2

This is book two in a series and you really should read Inherent Truths before reading this book to have the full context of the story. That said, having just finished book two, I really wish I had book three in hand to begin reading right now because...I want to know the bits that have yet to be told.

In book two we find Liv Sullivan in Ireland working with Michael, an Irish cop, to solve cold cases while also spending some time with Ashlyn, the si

This is the second book in this series. I had the hardest time getting into this book. There is a lot going on in this installment sometimes a little to much. Liv is trying to uncover the truths of the past that her mother was obsessed with. Government conspiracy and cover ups are front and center. Secrets are everywhere. There were times I didn’t like Ridge at all. Everyone wants to exploit Liv’s powers which are growing. We’ll see what happens in the next book.

This is book two of the Blood Secrets series and sees Liv Sullivan now working with the Irish Garda, to help solve cold cases and being helped by her sister and others to train her empath senses further. Back in her home town in the States, FBI Special Agent Ridge McCaffrey is back to work undercover as a police detective with the local police station. His job was to keep Liv safe, but others have twisted the path she was following and he was ordered away. He was unable to see her when she was i ...more

First of all, definitely read the first book before this one! It won't make very much sense if you don't. I had a bit of a difficult time getting into the flow of this book, but it had a lot of really good mystery and intrigue that will make you want to stick it out to the end. When Special Agent Ridge McCaffrey discovers a link in the missing person's investigation that will endanger Liv, he rushes to her side, hoping for more than to just keep her safe. Can he truly protect her if his own past ...more

This is the second book in the series. It was another suspenseful read that kept me on the edge of my seat. Honestly, I almost stopped reading this book half way through. There are constant lies and deception between the two main characters. He constantly lied to her and put his job above her. Even when she almost died and was in the hospital for a month he did what his boss wanted and did not call or see her once. I don't think he is redeemable. I want to read the next book to see how it ends b ...more

A very enjoyable tale with a decent storyline. Good characters, just one or two you just don't want to like. Lots of references to previous activies that made me wish I had read book 1 first then I discovered it hadn't been released yet!

I would of given five stars but there were some inconsistencies that bugged me, including the bible becoming a diary and Liv taking her bag off Ridge's shoulder when she was already carrying it!

I have ordered book 1 and look forward to learning more about Ridge a

This one was just as able to as I remember to pull me into the intrigue and mystery that carries a reader along till the surroundings they are in disappear. We are able to continue along side of Liv. We are also in for a treat because there is still agent Ridge also to gives us more in this story. As things grow and repair the danger also leaks in. We will be pulled and the tension will spike but this is one that will carry us fast because we want the whole picture and soon.

If you haven't read the first of this series stop reading this review and go read it! This is the second of the series and it does not disappoint. Ridge and Liv have so many lies between them and internal struggles that you start doubting your own assumptions of them. Again I thought I knew who couldn't be trusted and again I was so wrong. You will not want to put the book down and when you have to because you are finished you will not be disappointed.

I highly recommend you read book 1 before you read Inherent lies. Liv and Ridge are in for the ride of their lives. What with spirits roaming and danger lurking in the shadows, Ridge will need every ounce of strength to bring Liv home . . .

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A great read with lots of twists and turns. Liv Sullivan's paranormal gift gives the story an additional layer of intrigue and mystery. I also loved the Irish setting and details. The story definitely keeps you on your toes until the end. I look forward to reading Book 3.
