Maddie Faraday’s life would be perfect—

if it weren’t for:

her cheating husband,
her suspicious daughter,
her gossipy mother,
her secretive best friend,
her nosy neighbors,
and that guy she lost her virginity to twenty years ago.…

In Tell Me Lies, Jennifer Crusie dishes up a funny, sexy, suspenseful novel about small-town secrets, big-time betrayals, and the redemptive power of love, laughter, and chocolate brownies.

"A humorous mixture of romance, mystery, and mayhem. A winner!" —Susan Elizabeth Phillips, New York Times bestselling author of Breathing Room

"Lovers of Susan Isaacs’ mysteries, take heart.… There’s a new author on the block!" —Woman’s Own

"A jaunty tale of love and murder… [T]he plot springs some genuine surprises.… [T]here’s enough intrigue and scandal here to make a small city stay home." —Publishers Weekly

"Smart, sexy and howlingly funny. Having a bad day? Tell Me Lies is just the tonic to make you laugh again." —Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Apprentice

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Barr | 2/20/2014

    " Once I got past the first 100 pages, things started moving and then kept my attention. I wanted to slap Maddie many times, so I am happy that she came around and found her own skin in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria Luttrell | 2/15/2014

    " Excellent story about finding the true values of life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Me Lin | 2/15/2014

    " I have to say that despite the slow start, I really liked the book. I didn't love the adultery despite how crappy a husband Maddie had...while it made her human, it also made me like her a little less than I might have. Otherwise the story was good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elliedakota | 2/4/2014

    " Very cute :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 1/28/2014

    " Typical chick-lit, but I needed something mindless right now and it certainly fit the bill. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 1/28/2014

    " This book is on my top ten list of all-time favorite romances. Maybe that's because it was my first exposure to the incomparable Jennifer Crusie. Or maybe it's because it's just that good. Normally, I despise stories dealing with cheating spouses, but this book managed to get around my standard objection and keep me turning the pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ness | 12/7/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherryl | 2/24/2011

    " This book took me a while to get through, not because it was difficult to read, but because it was like so many other books I have read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 1/8/2011
