An enjoyable romantic suspense/mystery. I was drawn in immediately by the writing, mystery and intriguing characters. The way all of the crazy and seemingly unrelated mysterious events came together was amazing. What I didn't care for was the rhetorical questions Jesse or Sascha asked themselves during inner monologues. Personally, I found it slightly annoying, but it was easily overlooked when viewing the story overall.

Although the writing was excellent and most of the characters were interesting, the plot of Tangled Lies made no sense. Set in Safe Harbor on the Florida gulf coast, the town residents were mostly racist, judgmental and mean-spirited - not a place where any sane or caring person would want to raise a family.
Marina owners Rosa and Sal had a 3 year old son who disappeared 23 years earlier, never to be found. At some point, Rosa and Sal became foster parents to 4 teen girls but never adopted them; no background given on how Russian orphan Sasha ended up in Florida or how the other abandoned girls were placed in their care.
The real problem: Sal, who had been threatened by drug smugglers who were running drugs through his property, knew his son had been taken by criminals yet never reported his suspicions to the State Police, FBI OR DEA. No, Sal continued to live at the marina, with his wife and vulnerable daughters and allowed dangerous drugs to be distributed.
While I appreciated the lack of curse words and explicit sex scenes, I did not get the Christian vibe that other reviewers mentioned. People making stupid, impulsive and immature decisions then praying for God to rescue them is not true spirituality. Using our God-given intelligence to solve problems and help those less fortunate is...
