State of Lies Book Tour

If you’ve been following me for a while you know that this past year has been a difficult one for me, writing-wise (see my posts, HERE and HERE), but I’m getting back on track this fall, and boy do I have some fun things planned! I will be doing several book tours (like the one today) some of which will include giveaways! Woot! Woot! I’ve also got a few author interviews lined up, a new thing for me, but I hope it will be a fun addition to our time together. All the exclamation points!!

The exclamation points don’t stop there. Today, I am reviewing State of Lies, a mystery/thriller by Siri Mitchell. Yep, Siri Mitchell, one of my favorite authors, wrote a novel in one of my favorite genres!!

Honestly, I went into this one with a little trepidation, not a little nervous that the book wouldn’t live up to my expectations. Thankfully, my worry disappeared the more I read. While State of Lies is a huge departure from Mitchell’s usual work (see these favorites of mine for example: The Cubicle Next Door, She Walks in Beauty, and A Constant Heart), her writing shines. Full of twists and turns, State of Lies kept me guessing until the final line.

Perfect for fans of mystery, suspense, and political thrillers. Rated PG-13 for adult content, but nothing super graphic.

About the Book

Book: State of Lies

Author: Siri Mitchell

Genre: Suspense

Release Date: August 13, 2019

Months after her husband, Sean, is killed by a hit-and-run driver, physicist Georgie Brennan discovers he lied to her about where he had been going that day. A cryptic notebook, a missing computer, and strange noises under her house soon have her questioning everything she thought she knew.

With her job hanging by a thread, her son struggling to cope with his father’s death, and her four-star general father up for confirmation as the next Secretary of Defense, Georgie quickly finds herself tangled in a political intrigue that has no clear agenda and dozens of likely villains. Only one thing is clear: someone wants her dead too.

The more she digs for the truth, the fewer people she can trust.

Not her friends.

Not her parents.

Maybe not even herself.
