This book was recommended to me by someone very familiar with the genre. Since I'm not a fan of romance novels, I started it prepared to be underwhelmed. Another "bodice ripper," I thought. Instead I found myself quickly drawn into the intriguing characters, the interesting plot, and the history of the times. This author has found a style and tempo that is both arresting and entertaining. I urge readers to take the time to read "The Goodbye Lie." . It is the first of a series and I anticipate reading them all.
