Yesterday's Lies Book Review

Every once in awhile you find a book that just grabs you and won't let go. Those are the books that force you to "waste" your day away reading a book and doing almost nothing else. That, my friends, was this book. Cover to cover, I read it in 7 hours straight, and immediately wished I could contact the author to write more.

The book starts out with the story, from their view point, of the guys, Darien and Vince, and the girls, Jada and Toni. The author uses the first few chapters to get you caught up in their stories. Each character has their own section in the chapter, so you can "hear" their thoughts while experiencing their actions. By the time the author introduces more characters, in the form of Benjamin, David Sr. and Jr., and Gina, you are already so wrapped up in the story you can't put the book down. Terri D. almost has the reader begging for more. She, the author, creates these amazing characters, that you feel you know, while creating a suspenseful story that keeps you page turning.

Yesterday's Lies is the story of a circle of friends who's lives are more intertwined then they realized. As each character, each lie, each new level is created, you are drawn deeper into the story and shocked by all the lies that have been hidden. After reading this story I actually contemplated, for a long time, how well I knew my friends and what lies might be below the surface.

I highly recommend this book. It's a quick read but at the end it leaves you wanting more character story. I, as a reader, am hoping that at some point the author will expand on the story of Vince and Gina, and hopefully update us on Jada. The book is available on Amazon.

With best regards, Melissa.
