Review: The Second Lie
The Second Lie by Anna Richland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
It's been a while since I red the first installment of the series, but it didn't seem to have any impact on my enjoyment of this one. In fact, if you wanted to, you can probably just dive right into the series from here. While there is a larger storyline at work, there is certainly enough detail to help you catch up.
Stig is the central character in this one. He's masquerading as the imaginary partner to one very determined woman. Christina didn't realize how much trouble she'd be inviting into her life by making a fake male business partner. She's hid behind him countless times to gain entrance into the "boys club" world of wine. Now, when she's trying to track down who is counterfeiting bottles of wine she procured, she's confronted with her imaginary boss.
Christina and Stig's fun cat and mouse game quickly spirals out of control when other members of the immortal vikings club show up to force Stig back into a life of more dangerous crime. It would be easy enough for him, if he hadn't already forged a bond with Christina and developed a bit of flexible morals. There is a lot of action jammed into the continuous getaway schemes and a lot of fun along the way. The book reads like one big heist with the twist of having the thief be an immortal. The pairing of a paranormal genre with a more typical thriller story read like a non-stop action film. Oh, and there's romance. And sizzling scenes that will set your kindle on fire. And some heartache, but we get a very satisfying HEA in the end. For fans of action, drama, or even history, this could be a great book to get your feet wet in the paranormal genre.
