    3.5 Bright Stars🌟🌟🌟.5What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.... or does it?OK my friends that have trouble suspending belief.... warning this probably is not the book for you! It was fast paced and compelling, however there are a lot... and I mean a lot of coincidences... you just kind of have to go with it and not question anything 😝 for example in the very beginning Remmie is heading to an appointment in San Francisco when she just so...

    2 very disappointed stars. Sometimes a book just doesn't get to you in a positive manner and unfortunately this book just did not hold my interest. It was very long, repetitive and one where I found myself skimming a lot. I know Ms Jackson is a fine author but I am thinking, at least for me, this was not a stellar effort. I know there are many of my book friends who enjoyed this story. I only wish I could have joined that group of readers. All bo...

    Fifteen-year-old Remmi Storm was trapped inside the specially adapted boot of her mother’s car. Didi Storm had put Remmi’s siblings, babies Adam and Ariel, into the back seat of the Cadillac and headed for the Mojave desert – she had no idea her oldest child was in the boot of her car. What Remmi heard and glimpsed that night would stay with her forever. And although her mother didn’t know she had been witness to the events in the desert,...

Remmi, Didi's daughter, witnesses a woman jumping to her death from a building in San Francisco. She had been dressed as Marilyn Monroe. Remmi is adamant that it was not her mother. To solve this mystery of who it was that jumped and why, cop Dani Settler and Remmi Storm must go back over two decades a...

    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.I've not read any of Lisa Jackson's recent books, but I have read her in the past. She is a really good mystery-suspense author and I really enjoyed the intriguing tale that unfolds in "Liar, Liar". The beginning hooked me and the ending was seat of your pants suspense, the middle, alas, dragged a bit. The baddie and the why rem...

    This book just was not for me. It seemed so far fetched that I had trouble getting into it. I was disappointed as I was really looking forward to this one. Oh well, you out can't, love them all

    I found this an OK read but it definitely was not gripping or thrilling. I had just finished a really good suspense story and Liar, Liar just didn't compare well.The characters were OK but I thought the development of a relationship between Remmi and Noah was way too fast for not really knowing each other 20 years ago either. A couple of conversations 20 years ago and a couple of days together in the present leads to exchanges of "I love you"? An...

    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.

    Twenty years ago, Remmi Storm's mother Didi disappeared from Las Vegas. Didi was a female celebrity impersonator, specializing in Marilyn Monroe. Didi needed money and set up a scam to sell one of her six week old twins to his father for $250,000. That plan didn't go well. Didi left the desert that night with only one twin, an explosion, and 15 year old Remmi hiding in a hidden compartment in the old Cadillac. Didi then left the remaining twin wi...

    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 ...

    Didi Storm is a woman of many hats and many skills including a professional impersonator. She's also a woman with many different stories to tell as Edwina Maria Hutchinson.We may have a case of 'selling kids' but to imagine a parent doing so is unthinkable.Her daughter Remmi hides in the trunk of her car as she goes to meet a man. A man who takes away one of her children.Remmi has no idea the back story nor the past of her mother but she's about ...

    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 ...

    At 15 years of age, Remmi is deserted by her Marilyn Monroe impersonator mother and the disappearance of her twin endangered siblings. We meet Remmi again 20 years later (it’s always 20 years, isn’t it?) when she just happens to be witness to a suicide, and the woman looks like her lost mother. All of this is happening at the same time a biography of her mother has been released. Brisk story.

    Liar, Liar by Lisa Jackson published by Kensington Books is a great summer read for anyone who likes thrillers. Over the years I have been sadden by some of my go to authors. Their stories and characters having turned stale and leaving me yearning for the days of yore. Lisa Jackson is definitely not one of those authors. I have been reading Lisa Jackson books since I was about 15 my mom use to pick up 4-5 books for me and I would be done in less ...

    This little light . What a cute saying. The story started out really good. The middle of story was dragging. The ending of the story was very good. I love Lisa Jackson books. I saw this book at the library . I read it on my kindle. It was a good book to read in the fall or rainy day.

    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...

    What struck me the most in this book is the excellent way in which Lisa Jackson describes how different people can have very different views of other people. Edie/Didi is beautiful but 'difficult'. Her mother thinks she is a horrible person who doesn't care about anything, her sister thinks more or less the same, but her daughter sometimes sees the desperate child in her, and she also sees the love Didi has for her and her two newborns.An intruig...
