Living Lies is the debut novel by author Natalie Walters and first book in the Harbored Secrets series. Lane Kent and Charlie Lynch have both come to Walton, Georgia for it’s small town nature. But the town also harbors many secrets.
When Lane stumbles on a dead body, she is sucked into a murder investigation headed by new-to-town deputy Charlie Lynch. She tries to keep her distance from the handsome man, but Charlie is taken with the widow and her young son.
Charlie came to Walton to work with his uncle, the sheriff, after leaving his career in the Marines. Charlie wants to settle down, build a domestic life, and the possibility comes when he meets Lane. Lane, however, suffers from depression. Has for a long time. Will she be able to trust Charlie with her secret? Will he accept her even though she doesn’t feel worth the trouble of loving?
Living Lies was a fantastic story of love, hope, and caring for those who wrestle with unseen struggles. Add in the murder investigation and the suspense of danger and it was a fantastic read. Since Natalie Walters’ wrote such a good debut, I cannot wait to read the next novels in her series!
