Buried secrets can be deadly.
Becky Morgan has a life most women would envy until a car accident lands her in the hospital. She insists she’s fine, but it quickly becomes clear she’s changed. She’s forgetful, paranoid, short-tempered. Her husband wants to write off her change in personality to the IVF hormones she's taking in an attempt to get pregnant.
Becky's best friend, Jules Dalton, is a gorgeous, single woman, with a habit of sabotaging relationships. When Jules loses the man who could have been “the one,” she confronts the realization that being adopted at birth is contributing to her trust issues. She’s obsessed with finding out why she was given up and turns to DNA testing in hopes her matches will lead to her birth parents.
As Jules dives into her DNA results, Becky’s life soon becomes one she doesn’t recognize. Those closest to her are accusing her of things she simply can’t explain or remember. She’s terrified of losing everything: her career, her marriage, and her dream of becoming a mother.
Desperate to put the pieces of her shattered life back together, Becky needs her best friend more than ever. What she doesn’t realize is that Jules knows something that could explain everything away.
Becky has a dark past she’s unaware of. A darkness that’s coming for her.
It could also get her killed.
As a young girl, Donna Thomas tragically lost her mother and sibling. Her wealthy father has been emotionally absent ever since. As an adult, he refused to help, insisting she had to find her own way in life. When he dies, Donna’s convinced this is her chance to get what she deserves. After all, there is no other family.
But then his will deals her an unexpected blow. The estate is to be shared, not only with a mysterious stranger, but also a half-sister Donna didn’t know existed. It’s bad enough she has to share her father’s money, but his last words stipulate she doesn’t get a penny of her inheritance until she locates her half-sister.
Angry and bitter, Donna turns to Becky and Jules who’ve just opened the doors of their new detective agency. Having solved family mysteries of their own, they’re now ready to help others. As they follow the trail Donna’s father left behind, it becomes clear someone else is on the hunt as well. One accidental death in their path could be coincidental, but when it looks like the mystery beneficiary has been murdered, they don’t know who to trust.
As Becky and Jules scramble to find the connection behind Donna’s father and the murdered stranger, they worry time is running out. If they want to find Donna’s half-sister alive, they had better find her fast, because someone else seems to be one sinister step ahead of them—they want what’s theirs, and they’re prepared to kill anyone who gets in their way.
Where the Truth Hides (book 1) is the prequel to The Investigation Duo Series.
Next up, Becky and Jules team up and open a detective agency to helps others solve their family mysteries. Expect a bit of DNA and a lot of good old-fashioned detective work. Just get ready. Much like real life, sometimes their searching doesn't go quite as they hoped. There might even be a murder or two. I’m just sayin’. Book 2, The Dark Inheritance, will be out December 1st.
WHERE THE TRUTH HIDES
Where the Truth Hides is a real nail-biter throughout and downright creepy toward the end -- just the way I like my domestic suspense. When you think you know the answer, you don't, but Liane Carmen deftly sets the story and its surprises in the light with a satisfying conclusion. Settle in for a riveting read!

I'm so excited to have found this great new author. This novel took me by surprise. I absolutely loved it and highly recommend it. The author has several twists and turns that I didn't see coming, and that final scene was amazing. Cannot wait for anything else this author writes. Amazing!
