I am so happy to have Marguerite Ashton here for a Q & A today for my stop on her blog tour for her new book Promised Lies which was released on the 8th June! First of all, though, let’s read a little about the book…
Detective Lily Blanchette has a lot on her plate. Her sister, Celine, was murdered, her parents are on the verge of divorce, and after a whirlwind romance, she married a man she barely knows.
When the bodies of two young women are found, it is clear that the killer is the same person who murdered her sister, Lily sets out to find out who that is.
As the investigation comes to life, Lily realises that all is not as it seems in her life, who can she actually trust and who is she?
