Summary

Truth: From over a thousand miles away, I watched on the screen of my phone as two men murdered my wife. 

And I was helpless to save her. 

Consumed by hate and rage, I spent four years running from my memories - until a shattered woman gave me a reason to stop. 

Cora lived in a nightmare, but through sheer force of will, she’d turned it into something beautiful. She had a smile that could pierce the darkest soul. And with one glance, she shredded mine. 

Lie: I was only there for a fresh start. 

Lie: I had no idea what I was getting myself into. 

Lie: There was nothing I could do to save her either. 

But that’s the thing about lies - you never know who to believe.

Brilliant!

The Truth About Lies is so cleverly written, it melds the past and present seamlessly as the plot unfolds and secrets are revealed. It’s dark and gritty with exciting twists and turns.
Penn and Cora are broken characters who live with their demons day in and day out, but they have an inner strength that makes them fierce and protective when it comes to the people they care about.
I can’t express how much I loved this book. It’s so much more than what I was expecting. The narrators brought the characters to life. I absolutely loved it and can’t wait to start book 2!

SPECTACULAR.. EPIC.. TRAGIC.. BEAUTIFUL..10 ⭐️s

This has got to be one of THE best Duets I have ever ever listened to.. and trust me there have been way too many. The epic rollercoaster story starts in such a dark place.. then, as the unique and compelling storyline slowly lifts, unfurls, builds and reveals its gems, there is intrigue, suspense, mystery, secrets, angst, drama, passion, danger, romance, heartache and twists. The full cast of loveable bruised secondary characters all steer the storyline towards the light. But, it is the intense chemistry and slow-building romance between two very damaged people, that really pulls you in.. will keep you there within its virtual pages riveted by every well-placed word.. and the ending will have you frantically downloading book 2 as soon as this one ends.. or even sooner.

Aly Martinez has written a moving, gritty, powerful, all-consuming, emotional dual POV story about survival, second-chances and love.. and the lives and struggles of her characters will hook you from the very beginning. The well-written flawless chapters all too quickly whizz by.. then, just as AM starts to piece your heart back together again, she further wows.. whoas.. and woos you with unforeseen sucker punches, bloody actions, jaw-dropping revelations, touching truths and sweet sweet endings. Her strong loveable characters are all skilfully brought to life by these two wonderful narrators who brought their A game, delivered stellar performances and made this, and book 2, the perfect listen.

Worth a credit? Yes absolutely.. this is a very impressive dark-to-light love story that is split into two.. book 1 ends with a cliffhanger and book 2 ends on a beautiful day.

Guh

Aly Martinez and her duets... good Lord. I can’t get over them and this one slayed me even more.

The secrets and lies and truths and the most shocking of all reveals. I think I ran the gamut of emotions and I won’t be able to chill out for a while. My heart beats for this duet.

I wasn’t exactly thrilled with the narration. Although John Lane was fantastic, I did get pulled out of the book by a few of Cynthia Farrell’s voices. She made Drew sound like he wasn’t quite all there. Her male voices just need less of a pause to feel fluent.

But honestly... I would listen to this over and over regardless of narration.

A Miss

I'm a huge fan of this author, but seriously..... Aly should have combined , edited, or something with this "duet".
Aly, please listen. You have disrespected your faithful readers with this combo. I know the story could have been knock your socks off. Now I'm just ticked.
Narration was ok, but the female shouldn't be allowed to do male voices. Awful. Really hurts the story.
Anyway, just know that narration done well might have elevated the story. I'll read the second in the duet, but...
