Convenient Lies (Hidden Truths #1)
by Robin Patchen
From back cover:
What happens when a woman marries her greatest enemy?
When investigative journalist Reagan McAdams discovers her new husband Julien is part of a powerful international crime family, she flees Paris with their newborn, returning to her childhood home in Nutfield, New Hampshire. She plans to gather her inheritance, collect her beloved grandmother, and disappear forever. She’ll do whatever it takes to protect her son from his criminal father.
But when Reagan arrives home, her heart breaks at the news of her grandmother’s death. Finding her missing inheritance—hidden somewhere on the property—is as impossible as a second chance with her former boyfriend, Brady. Reagan’s feelings for Brady are stronger than ever, but when Julien’s people harm innocents to smoke her out, Reagan must make a choice.
What—and who—will she have to sacrifice to save her son?

I downloaded this complimentary copy of Convenient Lies and accidentally opened it. I had no intention of reading it right now, but I was sucked into the story as I perused the first few sentences. This title, Convenient Lies, is the first book of the series, Hidden Truth by Robin Patchen. Though a series opener, it stands alone well. I am anxious to read the next novel in the series. I am sure it will be just as thrilling and mesmerizing.
