Summary

She can’t tell the truth to save her life - now she might have to. From USA Today bestselling author Cynthia St. Aubin.

When aspiring attorney and gifted prevaricator Jane Avery is charged with killing a powerful software engineer, she sticks to the whole truth and nothing but. This time, she really has no idea who he is, or what he was doing in her bed. But no sooner is Jane railroaded than she’s bailed out by shady billionaire architect Archard Valentine. He and Jane have something in common: they’re both looking for Jane’s mother, Alex. For Valentine, it’s business. For Jane, it’s personal. And with one last lead to follow, she’s on the run.

Jane and Valentine aren’t the only ones bound for Seattle. So is Jane’s legal mentor...and a female colleague who plays her own games with the truth. Where they’re headed is straight into a fatal high-tech conspiracy, a web of betrayal, and a criminal mastermind connected to everything in Jane’s life. And, maybe, to all that’s missing in it.

Now Jane can trust only herself to find what she’s been looking for - and fast - because believe it or not, someone is dead set on making her disappear too.

Fast Fun and plenty of Sarcasm..

Lying Low is the second book in the Jane Avery series. The first book is Private Lies. I would strongly suggest listening to that first otherwise this character's quirky behavior may not make as much sense.
This is a pretty good whodunnit that begins with a dead man that was murdered with Jane's gun found on Jane's bed. But, Jane insists she didn't do it
What follows is a fast paced, sarcastic lot of bad luck and decisions with plenty of F bombs.
If you have kindle unlimited this book is FREE to borrow with the kindle edition.

First book was better. Narrator is somehow worse.

Honestly, I don't have all that much to say about the story. It managed to be both unnecessarily complicated and uninteresting. Jane doesn't fare so well in the intelligence department, making a number of stupid, stubborn mistakes that she should have learned not to repeat in book one. There's really no one to root for--Jane is an awful person and the rest of the characters aren't interesting or well-rounded enough to care about rooting for them. And the ultimate resolution is anticlimactic.

The worst part of the whole experience, though, has to be the narrator. Reading for the female charterers, she's fine. But oh my God are the male characters awful. They all sound the same. And very, very dumb. Overly round syllables and weird cadences that are usually reserved for when one person mocks something stupid another person has just said. It's so, so bad. This may have been forgiveable but there are a lot of male characters in this book.

If you have Kindle Unlimited and want to give this a try, go for it. But I wouldn't recommend paying actual money.

Narration very distracting

Didnt finish this book. Story may be good but narrator doing male voices was very distracting as they all sounded like morons. I got confused as to who was speaking at times. I know male characters can be difficult to do but please dont go overboard! This particular narrator is bad about this. The cop characters always sound slow and dumb. Not really compelling enough to actually read instead of listen.

Roll on the Floor Funny

Cynthia St. Aubin has the gift of writing natural, roll off the tongue snark. I literally laughed with every page. Great plot, great characters and over the top fun.
