Lies Come True (The Avery Hart Trilogy Book 1) by Emerald O’Brien – Review by Jana Teppih

Lies Come True (Avery Hart Trilogy, #1)Lies Come True by Emerald O’Brien
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lies Come True is the opening act of Emerald O’Brien’s Avery Hart Trilogy. It is like sitting down and watching a British serial crime drama television series (think of Broadchurch…) that is taking place in Birch Falls, Ontario.
The writer is masterful in keeping you at the edge of your seat and as Lies Come True is the first of the trilogy then she will leave us with one heck of a cliffhanger that I am sure I am not the only one impatient to read!
We have Avery Hart who survived an attack when she was fourteen. Wind forward ten years and another woman has been attacked and she survives as well … are these cases related? Enter Inspector Noah Cotter who is keen on solving the case while also being attracted to Avery … the writer gives us some intense and detailed police investigation descriptions, a puzzle that I was not able to solve until the pieces had been put together and actually, there are still some things up in the air … I have a slight feeling that we need to get to the end of the trilogy to be able to solve it all!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lies Come True is the first book in the Avery Hart series by author Emerald O’Brien. As a fourteen-year-old girl, new student at a new high school, Avery Hart is attacked on her walk home from school. For the past ten years Avery has struggled to get over what happened in the past. Nobody believed her story when she was young, now the attacker is back and coming for her.
I enjoyed this story for the most part although I did struggle from time to time. The story got disjointed at times making it kind of hard to follow. The storyline was a good one and I didn’t see the twist at the end coming so now I look forward to reading the next book to see what happens next. Hopefully book 2 doesn’t leave me confused, ties up some loose ends and flows better than the first.

Lies Come True is the first book in the Avery Hart Trilogy by Emerald O’Brien. It is the first book I have read by this author but I loved it. The cover art drew me in, and the suspense filled story line kept me engaged until the end. I cant wait to read book 2. Avery Hart escapes an attack in the woods as a teenager, and spends years in therapy as a result. Just when she has a handle on life, the killer turns back up. First a body of a young woman is found in a park in the same town. Then a second victim manages to escape, and the stories are eerily similar. Avery works with the detectives and victim to try to help solve the crime and put her fears to rest. Very intense suspense filled book, but I loved it!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lies Come True is one very fast paced read that kept me flipping the pages. I found this book to have a lot of twists, I was always on my toes trying to figure out the mystery but sometimes it could be just a little bit too much. This is the first book in the Avery Hart Trilogy and I think that it set you up perfectly for the next installment. Emerald O’Brien did a great job with the characters and interweaving them so subtly throughout the lives of Avery and Noah, I was never sure where they stood in the story and I appreciated that. I questioned my instincts a lot while I read this story and not a lot of books make me do that. While I think that it may have been a bit overwrought at times, like too many twists, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read the second one and find out some answers.

If you come to the reviews before you grab a novel then, please let me be the first to tell you DON’T skip this book if you just sincerely don’t like cliffhangers. It is worth it I promise and you can run right now and grab the next one, and the next one… You don’t want to miss this book! I absolutely love a good and twisty murder mystery and this right here has all the pieces necessary for just that. An A++ perfect twisty murder mystery. There is quite a bit going on in this story and we are introduced to several characters so you will want to dive in for the good details on all that. I am going to go jump into book two now and see about finding out what will happen next! Thanks for the fantastic read Ms. O’Brien!

5-Stars

Lies Come True is an exciting crime/thriller novel. I love how the book begins with the reader in the midst of one of the crimes. It immediately caught my attention and I had to know more. Avery is the main female lead character in this novel who has developed what seems to be a complex because no one believed her story from when she was chased at a young age. Her experience was terrifying and traumatic. I loved how Noah believed her and began checking into it. They had a strong connection as soon as they met. The storyline was exciting and interesting. I can’t wait to read more in this series.

Lies Come True by Emerald O’Brien is the first book in the Avery Hart series and a book that I could NOT put down!! This page turner was filled with such suspense and mystery that it grabbed me at the beginning and held my interest in the two sittings that it took me to finish. This is a trilogy and you will be left with a cliff hanger, and I know I will be reading all book as I want to know more about what happens to the character’s and what happens with the story line.
Avery escaped a horrible attack ten years ago, and there seems to be a connection to current attacks and the cops are worried there is a killer on the loose. Noah, a new investigator is drawn to this case as his attraction to Avery intensifies. Now Noah must find out the truth!
This book will make you think and think hard and it what will draw you more into the story and make you want to dive right into the next two books! I give this book 4 stars and look forward to reading the next two books.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lies Come True by Emerald O’Brien is the first book in the Avery Hart Trilogy. I will warn you that this is a book that has a “to be continue” feel towards the end of the book. In other words, if you do not like cliffhangers this book may not be for you. I on the other hand love cliff hangers. This is my first book by Emerald O’Brien and it was a great suspenseful mystery. Not only is this book a great suspenseful mystery, but also a thriller, drama, and the occasional right hook out of nowhere. Avery Hart is the main character that had a traumatic experience about 10 years prior and it appears as if the attacker has come back to attack again. With the recent events happening in town, will Avery be able to put the past in the past and help with the new cases? Noah is the local inspector who is looking into the crimes. Every time I thought I had a grasp of what was going on here comes that screwball out of left field. I love that this story kept me guessing. I cannot wait to read the next book to continue the story on.

4 Stars!!!!

I do like to mix it up a bit and read a bit of a mystery sometimes. This was a new author and a new series to me and I was not disappointed. I really found this to be a refreshing change and well written. The book grabbed me from the beginning and held me till the end.

I found myself really drawn to Avery’s character. The fact that her case was indirectly tied into the new ones just brought a real good twist to the book. I really found myself feeling the emotions as she was going through them as she found out the truth of what really happened. Then the author does a good job of throwing in just that little twist to keep the book flowing and I found myself then really drawn to Charla’s character. I must admit that I cannot wait to read more from this author and this series to see how things turn out.

I give Lies Come True (The Avery Hart Trilogy Book 1) by Emerald O’Brien, 4 stars.

10 years ago, Avery was a young teen who barely made it out of a harrowing event. She was chased by what she at the time thought was a monster. She felt she just got lucky to make it out alive. Now, other girls aren’t that lucky. The current attacks remind Avery of what she went through. She knows she has to tell someone. So she turns to a new inspector, Noah. There is something about this young woman that intrigues him. He is drawn to find out more about the currents cases. But they can’t seem to catch the attacker, and he has already killed. Can they stop this person? How many more have to suffer first? Does this have anything to do with Avery?

This was a very good book. You get drawn into the action and suspense right away. I really felt for Avery, both for what has happened in the past and in the present day. She is the main character, well her and Noah, but the secondary characters are wonderful too. They each have their own personality. The story itself is gripping and does not let go. You are left puzzling things out the whole time. I really like this in a suspense book. I don’t want to have all the answers, I like to be kept guessing. This is the beginning of what seems to be an exciting trilogy and I anxiously await the next book.
