Review by: dawn johnson on July 21, 2012 :
I literally read this book in one day, I couldn't put it done! You could tell the author has legal experience and really knows her way around a courtroom and the legal system. I just hope she was not drawing on totally person experience for the book as it was thrilling but also frightening!!

Review by: Ron Clinton on July 18, 2012 :
This is a really great read! I read at least a book a week, mostly from best seller lists, but this title caught my eye and I decided to give it a try. Shelter of Lies is one of the best written, carefully crafted suspense novels I have read in a long time. I highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind reading on into the night. I have purchased Mountain Blood, which is another title by this author, and after a few chapters, I know I'm going to like this one too. This lady knows how to write!
