Dangerous Lies by Becca Fitzpatrick


Hello, Hello, Hi *waves*
Pull up a chair, welcome to my little slice of the bookish community.



BLURB

A teen is forced to make a fresh start after witnessing a violent crime—but love and danger find her anyway in this “swoonworthy romance” (Kirkus Reviews) from Becca Fitzpatrick, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hush, Hush saga.

Stella Gordon’s life is a lie.

She does not belong in Thunder Basin, Nebraska. As the star witness in a murder trial against a drug dealer, Stella is now in the Witness Protection Program. The small town locals can never know who she really is. Not even Chet Falconer, the one boy who makes her want to reveal her true self. She knows that telling the truth will only bring violence to this safe haven.

Despite how hard Stella tries to stay under the radar, danger is fast approaching. Criminals have a way of getting rid of witnesses, and Stella may have made the one mistake that could lead the cold-blooded men hunting for her right to her doorstep.

Thoughts.

Dangerous Lies, I haven't read a Becca novel in so very long, and when I came across this novel and read the blurb I was very excited to jump into this young adult romantic mystery.

I started out reading this one not to sure if I was going to enjoy it, to be honest the blurb had me hooked. Stella was an unlikable character, that's what annoyed me the most. As the story progressed I found myself growing to like her a little but more, and then by the time it was over I was sort of happy I didn't have to read her POV anymore.

Estella/Stella has been placed into the witness protection program, and has been sent to live with an old retired cop Carmina. There isn't a lot of action in this one, and it reads as a lazy summer romance.

There were lies on top of lies throughout this story, and the ending was so intense and a little fast.

I enjoyed Chet, the main squeeze, I enjoyed his relationship growing with Stella. I think if there was more action and the same amount of romance, it would have been better.


I also read this for my reading challenge OWL's 2019 a magical readathon.

Overall 3.75 stars.
