    Hardcover. I normally get into Lisa Jackson's novels, but I'm afraid I struggled getting into this one. Just to let all fans know I haven't given up on this author I'm really looking forward to reading the next book by Lisa Jackson.

    So, I generally like Lisa Jackson’s books. They’re easy reads with a nice mix of romance and suspense.I just wasn’t all that into the plot on this one.It was slow and I really didn’t care whether or not they actually found out what happened to Didi. I was just kind of…bored.In addition, I felt like the reason behind everything got seriously convoluted, but still left a plot point hanging.So, this one really wasn’t for me. I’ll read ...

    I didn’t figure out the mystery at all! Hahaha. Enjoyed this book immensely. Felt sorry for Remmi through most of the book, so I wasn’t comfortable reading this book, but it paid off in the end. Great storytelling.

    Ugh. I am usually a huge fan of Lisa Jackson but her newest book Liar, Liar just didn't keep my attention. It felt like it took me forever to get through it and I actually skimmed most of it. Remmi Storm is 14 when her mother and 2 half siblings disappear. 20 years later someone who maybe Didi Storm (Remmi's mother) jumps out a hotel window. Dozens of characters, dozens of story lines muddy the waters of this book, trying to resolve the issue of ...

    Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of Liar, Liar by Lisa Jackson that I read and reviewed.This book was an excellent book by Lisa Jackson. I can honestly say that I was guessing from the start who the killer was and what really was going on with Didi and the twins. I loved how Jackson kept the reader on the edge and brought the story from the current time to the past and then back to the current time. It was just written so well that as a reader, I ...

    If I see Lisa Jackson's name on a mystery it is almost a guarantee that I will thoroughly enjoy the story. This book simply proves that theory! Technically I suppose this book is a romantic suspense but the focus is almost entirely on the mystery surrounding a woman that has been missing for twenty years. The romance is almost non-existent and really doesn't come into play until the end of the story. Even though some of the mystery takes place tw...

    Lisa Jackson is my go to author for mystery books. I really liked this book. It was very suspenseful. I didn’t like the characters I wasn’t supposed to like. I liked the characters I was supposed to like. The plot was awesome. I kind of figured out the ending but not completely. My only complaint ~ I like action. There was a bit too much talking and not enough suspense. I would like to thank NetGalley, Lisa Jackson and Kensington for an ARC o...

    I found this Lisa Jackson book to be a fun read (if one suspends credulity and is willing to accept a lot of coincidences that challenge logic) and certainly based on an intricate and interesting premise. Part 1 of the story is set in Las Vegas 20 years ago. Didi Storm, a B-list Vegas Marilyn Monroe impersonator and a women with a highly checkered past involving lots of shady characters, disappears without a trace after a scam gone wrong that lea...

    For me this is one of those authors that when you start one of their books you are unable to put it down!The story is told between the past and the present, while we discover the story of Didi Storm and the race against the clock of her daughter searching for the truth, risking her life with it.This is a thriller full of hate, betrayal and family confrontations, that will make the reader think about their parents and how much they love them.

    I have never read a Lisa Jackson book I didn't like and enjoy and this one is no exception. Remmi has had no contact with her mother or infant siblings in 20 years. Remmi happens upon what appears to be a suicide. The woman is wearing one of her mother's costumes of Marilyn Monroe. Is this a publicity stunt because of a recently published book about her mother? The police (and Remmi and a friend from the past) look for answers to a lot of questio...

    Compelling! Lots of action and original quirky characters. I enjoy liars - it feels like a challenge and in this journey it spanned years and really made me think. The story felt real and I found myself wondering about the thought processes as if this really happened. A real suspense novel and a good read.

    Liar, Liar is an intricately woven tale. The crimes span 20 years. The mystery of it was slowly revealed to us. There was so many twists and turns. The suspense of it all was amazing. Lisa Jackson is a wonderful storyteller! I received an advance review copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
