Review: Truth Stained Lies by Terri Blackstock


About the book:
When truth doesn’t make sense, will lies prevail? 

Cathy Cramer is a former lawyer and investigative blogger who writes commentary on high-profile homicides. When she finds a threatening note warning her that she’s about to experience the same kind of judgment and speculation that she dishes out in her blog, Cathy writes it off as mischief . . . until her brother’s wife is murdered and all the “facts” point to him. The killer has staged the crime to make the truth too far-fetched to believe. Working to solve the murder and clear her brother’s name, Cathy and her two sisters, Holly and Juliet, moonlight as part-time private investigators. Juliet, a stay-at-home mom of two boys, and Holly, a scattered ne’er-do-well who drives a taxi, put aside their fear to hunt down the real killer.

Stakes rise when their brother’s grieving five-year-old son is kidnapped. As police focus on the wrong set of clues, the three sisters and their battered detective friend are the only hope for solving this bizarre crime, saving the child, and freeing their brother.

My thoughts:

Truth Stained Lies is the first book in Terri Blackstock's Moonlighters series and released back in 2013. I've had this on my TBR basically since its release and have no excuse for not reading it sooner, but I'm so glad that I finally got around to it.

The story deals with a man being set up for his wife's murder. He saw a clown leave the house right before finding her body, but when he tells the cops this they basically think he made it all up and that he is the culprit. This is just the beginning of the story!

I loved the cast of characters and I can't wait to continue the series to see what happens next with them. I think my favorite character was Holly, but I really liked all three sisters a lot.


All in all, Truth Stained Lies was a thrilling suspense. Even though I guessed who the true killer was early on, that didn't stop me from loving the mystery. I definitely recommend this book if you like Christian suspense.
