Publisher's Summary

Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security.
However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver.
Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle's freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.
Including her.
Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves - it's all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else.
Until her past collides with her present.
And it's her turn to lie.
To everyone...including herself.

This was a very different romance story. It's not the typical story. It really sucked me in from the word go. The narration was great and the storyline was compelling. It's worth the credit but since there is a cliffhanger I wish I had waited for the complete series to be released.

What would have made Crown of Lies better?

I think I've written one other review (whether written or audio), which says a lot because I am voracious reader and Audible lister. I am a fan of Pepper Winters and buy most of her books. However, here are the problems with this book:1. I can't stand the premise that a 19 year old is firing middle aged men "in the board room" and running one of the country's leading retailers. I can't suspend belief enough to finish a book whose premise, in large part, includes this literary gem.2. Authors need to suck it up and ask for advice from professionals prior to making statements regarding certain professions. When the main character, who is 13 (?), has to sign her father's last will and testament so that, once dead, she will inherit his company .................. THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN. NO ONE HAS TO SIGN SOMEONE ELSE'S LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT. Also, a 13 year old cannot sign a binding contract. The main character goes on to say she's signed so many contracts (she's 13) .... NEXT, YOU CAN'T SUE A MAN YOU JUST MET IN A BAR FOR SEXUAL HARASSMENT -- THAT IS A LEGAL CLAIM THAT HAPPENS IN THE CONFINES OF A WORKPLACE. This was, I am embarrased to say, the last straw. 3. If your main character is supposed to be a genius businesswoman (at 19) running a multi billion dollar business (and, supposedly, on the Forbes list of wealthiest people) -- she would never threaten to sue a stranger, not in the workplace, for sexual harassment. UGH!4. The narrator sounds like she is reading a book -- not narrating. It's awful.Worst audible book I've ever purchased. Returning it pronto.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not this book.

How could the performance have been better?

Hire a narrator with experience?

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
