Publisher's Summary

Raised in a tribe of street urchins, Maddie Grande was taught to be a thief and beggar on the streets of New Orleans. But Maddie doesn't know her real name or where she came from. Raised by Dexter Grande, Maddie and her twin "brothers" have recently left New Orleans and moved to the bayou. The twins are rarely there, but Maddie has come to love the swamp. She has learned to fish and trap and sell pelts at the local mercantile.

Maddie longs to change her life but knows that her brothers will never give up their lawless ways. When they kidnap the daughter of a wealthy carpetbagger, the twins force Maddie to hide the precocious eight-year-old while they return to New Orleans to wait for notice of a reward.

Pinkerton agent Tom Abbott is assigned to the kidnapping case in which Maddie has become an accomplice. In a journey that takes them to Baton Rouge, a mutual attraction becomes evident, but Tom and Maddie cannot trust each other. Will Maddie ever discover who she is? Will her real family ever find her? Will Maddie and Tom listen to their hearts? Or will they choose honor over love?

    Any additional comments?

    I loved this continuing story of sisters separated after their parents death. Each girl grows up in different circumstances. This is the story of Megan or "Maddie" who learns how to change her life for the better and find herself worthy to accept these changes. Im not going to ruin the story for anyone but if you enjoy family stories and struggles mixed with a tender love story then you will like this series. I look forward to book 3.

    "Heart of Lies: Irish Angel Series"

    Jill Marie Landis is a very talented author. Her writing style is unique and you feel as though you are part of the setting. The characters in this story soon become real and the personalities are depicted vividly. This is the first book that I have read by Jill Marie Landis and I purchased two others but found that the language and sexual descriptions were a little explicit for my taste. This was disapointing because I feel like her talent is so wonderful but I am afraid to invest in other books that may have content that makes me uncomfortable.

    "AWESOME Series!!"
    What did you love best about Heart of Lies?

    This series (all 3 books) is awesome. Although you think you know what will happen, there are always twists and turns to keep you guessing. The stories reflect past events, without dwelling of retelling every detail in each book - much appreciated. Each book brings the family closer to reunion without having them forget the life they have lived and the names they were given. Can't wait for Sarah's story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    See above comment.


    What does Renée Raudman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It was easy to visualize the people and the situation by the way it was presented.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely.

    Story
    "What a delight"
    Would you listen to Heart of Lies again? Why?

    I would listen again. The story held my interest throughout the series and I hope the author completes the series. The narrator was excellent and was able to give each character their own unique voise. I didn't know what to expect, because I purchased the third in the series first by mistake. When I discoverd what I had done, I went back and purchased he first two, so I could start from the beginning. My mom and I really enjoyed the series.


    What about Renée Raudman’s performance did you like?

    The was great at giving each character a unique voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't want to give anything away, but the entire subject moved me.

    Story
    "So So not my favorite"

    I went looking for something new in the christian novel genre, but this was just a bit too odd for me. The story was ok, but not really to my liking. Narrator was good. Not a bad story just not my cup of tea.
