5.0 out of 5 stars Will Read AGAIN! December 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Chain of Lies does not disappoint! I read the first two and while I enjoyed them, this was by far my favorite of the series!

The latest mystery that Emily gets herself involved in is exciting. She realizes there are some young girls possibly in trouble and that leads her to poking her nose around a massage parlor trying to figure out exactly what is going on. Things take a turn for the worst when young Molly gets involved.

If you are a first time reader of Paradise Valley Mysteries than read the books in order. The 'Evan' mystery really builds up through the series and comes to a climatic ending in this third installment. It is a story line about Emily's husband that keeps you coming back for more.

I couldn't put it down. I recommend this book and the whole series to those looking for a great wholesome yet mysterious read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Debra Burroughs Does It Again November 24, 2012
By Yvonne
Format:Kindle Edition
I was so happy to once again read the adventures of Emily and her loyal friends. She is trying so hard to find out who murdered her husband. She is sure someone is following her.
She sees a girl that is crying in the hotel bathroom when a woman comes in to get her and Emily sees fear in her eyes. Then another girl comes up murdered and she is sure the two things are related.
When Molly (the daughter of Emily's friends) come up missing emily is sure she know whats going on. With the help of her boyfriend Colin (with the police department) and Peter (news reporter) Isabel (FBI Agent), they plan a sting operation, hopefully they can rescue Molly before its too late.
I very much enjoy this Paradise Valley Mystery Series. Debra Burroughs writes with such a way you are sure you know what's going on and then there is a twist and you aren't sure how it is all going to come together. I hope she has a lot more planned for Emily and her loyal group of friends.

3.0 out of 5 stars light and worth the read March 16, 2013
By Mrs.V
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third in the series (I have read all 4). These books should be read in order. There is background you can skim when you read them close together, but this is better explored by reading the previous books. Maybe this one rates a half star more, because the author does a good job of making a new mystery, and solving the old one that has been part of the previous books. Note my use of the word light in the title (I actually reviewed all 4 books in the series and used the word light in each title) because these are not crusading books with gory details or great moral outrages over the horrible things that happen in life. These are light reads with enough mystery to move the plot and enough romance to soften the evils of this world. Definitely worth reading all 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money August 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't wait until the first of the month to read this book after reading the first two books in the series, so I actually paid for the Chain of Lies. I don't usually pay, but this book was definitely worth the money. As in the other two books, I figured out the mystery early on. The Paradise Valley series is not a great mystery, but the cooperation between Colin and Emily and their friends to solve it is where the interest lies. Likeable characters, good writing, and just enough romance/"sort of sex" make these books great reads. They are also fairly quick reads, and that's good because they are rather hard to put down. Dinner was a little late tonight while I finished the book. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars a winner April 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read several of this author's books and have always enjoyed them. Chain of lies was no exception. Lots of suspense and just enough romance. I also like that there was no profanity or explicit sex scenes, which add nothing to a good story.Although part of a series, the book was a stand alone and did not leave you hanging, wondering what happened. Bravo!
