Publisher's Summary

Raised in foster homes, 18-year-old Chloe Henderson hopes for a sunnier future with boyfriend Trace Rodriguez and the child they're expecting. On what Chloe thinks is a Sunday outing, Trace pulls up to a convenience store in a rundown San Francisco neighborhood. Chloe is horrified when he robs the store and kills the clerk and a customer, ADA Roy Walker. Afraid of losing the one person who's ever loved her, Chloe helps Trace escape and becomes an accomplice to an appalling crime.
Reeling from her husband's death, Dianna Walker is shocked to discover the lies and dark secrets he's kept from her. When her young son plows into Chloe with his bike, the women's lives become entwined in ways neither of them could have imagined.
Joel Richards, an enthusiastic young journalist covering recent developments in an old murder, has his own reasons for being interested in Roy Walker, and in Chloe.

The Truth Hurts

This story was a fabulous dramatic mystery, created by Jonnie Jacobs, that had me guessing at the truth the entire time. I truly enjoyed the characters, the twists and turns, and how it resolved itself in the end. I enjoyed the unique plot and was impressed throughout.

Unfortunately the narration hurt the story telling due to its terrible post editing. Marissa Pistone did a fine job with all the characters, emotions, and pacing. However, the amount of mouth noises, licking of lips, lip smacks, and awkward breath pauses took me out of the story too many times to count. I give 3 stars for a good narration but a 1 star for production quality.

Overall it's a great story and I recommend it being physically read.

This audiobook was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
