If Ridley Jones had slept ten minutes later or had taken the
subway instead of waiting for a cab, she would still be living the beautiful
lie she used to call her life. She would still be the privileged daughter of a
doting father and a loving mother. Her life would still be perfect—with only
the tiny cracks of an angry junkie for a brother and a charming drunk with
shady underworld connections for an uncle to mar the otherwise flawless whole.
But that’s not what happened. Instead, those inconsequential
decisions lead her to perform a good deed that puts her in the right place at
the right time to unleash a chain of events that brings a mysterious package to
her door—a package which informs her that her entire world is a lie.
Suddenly forced to question everything she knows about
herself and her family, Ridley wanders into dark territory she never knew
existed, where everyone in her life seems like a stranger. She has no idea
who’s on her side and who has something to hide—even, and maybe especially, her
new lover, Jake, who appears to have secrets of his own.
Sexy and fast-paced, Beautiful Lies is a true
literary thriller with one of the freshest voices and heroines to arrive in
years. Lisa Unger takes us on a breathtaking ride in which every choice Ridley
makes creates a whirlwind of consequences that are impossible to imagine… Download and start listening now!
