The secondary characters in the book were good and helped move the story along, my only suggestion would have been to give Claire's sister a bit more; I understood her impact but would have enjoyed the narrative with more dialog from her.
I'd try a different book by the same author as I did like her writing style and the book was still a good read.
I like the other books I've read of MacLeod's. They are fun romances with interesting ideas. She creates characters who have different jobs and are written like regular woman rather than superwomen. So if you've not ready any of MacLeod's books, try some of the others first.
I know many people will think that this story line, especially Claire's part of it, is unrealistic, but it is possible to be so short on self-awareness that one lives a lie for a very long time. My hope for this book is that it finds more readers like me, who need to know that they are not alone in their obliviousness.
What separates this book from other lesbian-themed romances is that it has a strong sense of humour. This tends to be missing from far too many in the genre, which makes "Telling Lies Online" really stand out. Additionally, it's humour comes from the characters, not from a "slipping on a banana-peel" absurdity. This gives it a grounding in realism, which makes it all the more hilarious. The characters are fully fleshed out and believable, and the reader winds up falling in love with them, as well as the protagonists.
I will certainly be getting Miranda's other books (I just bought "A Road Through The Mountains"), having added her to my list of "must read" authors (along wit Radclyffe and Gerri Hill). A stunning first effort!
The writing was good, but I can't say that I liked the characters so I can only give this an "okay" rating.
