White Lies - Arcane Society Bk 2 Author:Jayne Ann Krentz The New York Times-bestselling author of Falling Awake and All Night Long takes her fans beyond the everyday boundaries of the mind-and the heart-in a compulsively readable new novel of paranormal power, deception, and danger . . . — Petite, thirtysomething Clare Lancaster is a Level Ten para-sensitive - and a "human lie detector." Over... more » the years, she's come to accept that someone with her extraordinary talents is likely to have trouble in the relationship department. And she's even resigned herself to the fact that everyone, to one degree or another, hides behind a façade. . . .
And now it seems that meeting the half sister and family whom she never knew until seven months ago was a mistake. Her father summons her from California to play a role in his business empire, and Clare doesn't intend on making the same mistake twice. But after meeting Jake Salter, Archer Lancaster's "financial consultant," Clare is convinced that things aren't what they seem. Salter's careful conversation seems to walk a delicate line between truth and deception, revealing and resisting. Something sparks and sizzles between them-something more than the usual electricity between a man and a woman.
Caught in a dizzying storm of secrets, lies, and half-truths, Jake and Clare will plunge into an investigation that demands every bit of their special gifts-together they must overcome their mutual distrust in order to unravel a web of conspiracy and murder.« less
I usually don't read this genre (supernatural romance) but my mother gave me this book and said I'd like it...well, she was right! Krentz' writing is fast paced yet descriptive, her characters were likable and the plot really flowed! You won't want to put this one down.
This is a murder mystery with a little bit of paranormal thrown in. It is fast paced, and clues and bits or the story are revealed a little at a time. The chemistry between the two main characters is good.
Clare Lancaster is a human lie detector and any falsehood, no matter how subtle or well hidden, sets her blood racing. When Clare finds the body of Brad McAllister, the golden child of Stone Canyon, Arizona, the posh residents turn a suspicious eye in her direction.
