This was a good read. The mystery and overall theme kept me entertained and encouraged me to continue reading. The author took the time to develop good characters with real emotional problems and conflict. The chapters did not seem rushed and the ending was left open enough that a sequel could be written at a later date. I would recommend it.
I liked the way the plot unfolded and all the hidden secrets of the characters. Danica learns that life is based on lies until she discovers the truth.
I enjoyed reading MISERABLE LIES by Nolon King. Loved the Danica character. I recommend it to mystery readers.
I liked the action and thought processes of the characters. There was a couple grammar mistakes but it didn’t detract from the story. Overall good read!!
