Lies We Live
Brenda St John Brown, author
Twenty-nine-year-old Ella Ingraham is a best-selling novelist. She's also a murderer. At least that's what most of the world thinks after her bastard ex-boyfriend brought a tabloid frenzy and a civil suit down on her for "negligence" following the stillbirth of their unplanned child at eight months. Her New York - California drive is meant to be an escape after the hell of the trial, and Horatio, AK is just another random exit off the highway. Until she meets Josh Devereaux, part-time farmer, full-time tech genius holed up in his hometown after a few years in New York turned him into a bigger asshole than he ever thought he'd be. Ella finds Josh Fascinating, capital "F". Followed immediately by unnerving. He knows too much about her and, quite frankly, he tries too damn hard. That's a red flag if she's ever seen one. Or at least it would be if she were thinking with her head and not the more irrational parts of her anatomy. Like her heart.
