Publisher's Summary

 Secrets. Lies. A man. There's always a man. And there's always a truth to be told.
 

I'm Hailey Anne Monroe. I’m 28 years old. An artist, who found her muse on the canvas because I wasn’t allowed to have friends or even keep a journal. And yes, if you haven’t guessed by now, I’m that Hailey Anne Monroe, daughter to Thomas Frank Monroe, the man who was a half-percentage point from becoming president of the United States. If you were able to ask him, he’d probably tell you that I was the half point. But you can’t ask him, and he can’t tell you. He’s dead. They’re all dead and now I can speak.

Narration was above and beyond!

This is just what I needed after reading heartbreaker after heartbreaker. I have read a couple other Lisa Renee Jones romance books and they're always fantastic. The Perfect Lie has to be my favorite book written by this author though. From the very start of this book it was impossible to put down. I was wrapped up into Hailey's life. Hailey was groomed her entire life to be the President's daughter, to be the people's first daughter. She was expected to be more... to be the best and to never make a mistake. The problem is, Hailey is only human.

Miss Jones weaves a masterful story. It's a story that's surround by an intriguing and deception. I loved the way this book reads like a journal with a now and before. I feel like we get a bit more out of Hailey's mind with this method of writing. The writing is done perfectly. There's a smidge of romance... which is the perfect amount because murder always brings out sex, money, and politics. I felt like the author really captures how badly children want to make their parents happy, to make them proud. Poor Hailey must have felt like she was up against an impossible task with her father. Hailey is a likable character. I really rooted for her. I disliked most of the other characters and like Hailey, I didn't trust anyone! Love the twists and turns... I still have a few questions. I do hope we get a bit more from Hailey!

The narrator, Eva Kaminsky, was seriously a 5 star narrator. She gives us Hailey's side of the story with this quick and no-nonsense voice that I couldn't help but love it! Her pacing and tone throughout the entire nearly 10 hours made me unable to pause. This is definitely a narrator to watch for!

Loved the story line

I do not normally read books like this but I was sucked in from the 1st sentence. This book was in my recommended to read section and I am so glad that I did. Eva Kaminsky did an amazing job. She made this audible book come to life and the narration was on point. This book had me guessing at every turn. Hailey Ann Monroe has become one of my most favorite characters now. She is strong willed and very likeable.

LR Jones did an amazing job letting you get into Hailey's head and let you know what she was thinking. I really wanted Hailey to come out on top and get her HEA. There were times when I listened to this story and my stomach turned for her and it really pulled at my heart strings. I highly recommend this book.

Meh...

Although the book has positive ratings, I found it to be repetitive, slow, and predictable. I was anxious to get to the end.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Definitely 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was such an unexpected storyline that kept and held my interest the entire time. Yes it was a little long but don't skip any chapters, as you will miss important parts of the story. Hailey the heroine of the story was a character you had to admire and root for; there was so much deception and too many untrustworthy characters in her life but she played her part well. The narrator was fantastic and it was such a pleasure listening to this suspenseful story. Another refreshing story by Ms. Jones!!!!

Fantastic Read.

What a great book. I was on the edge of my seat, and didn’t know who was trustworthy 90% of the time. I highly recommend.

Awesome!!!

I was very intrigued with the main character. She is my new superhero. She was able to overcome a lot and gained back her life.

Not my cup of tea

Narrated in the first person, this is a story of a young woman raised in a political family full of deception and tragedy. From the beginning she takes the position that personal decisions are irrelevant as our fates are inevitable. In spite of this theme being repeated over and over, there was little support in the story itself and so it seemed tacked on. Her relationships with men were all expedient rather than loving even to the last notwithstanding her protestations to the contrary she admits that she doesn’t really love him. Personally, I did not find her likable which meant that there was little to inspire me to finish the book.

Up In the Air

It was a good listen, kind of long winded for my taste. I kept waiting for the story line, which you don't get until the end (my opinion). There were times when I wanted to stop listening but, I didn't turn it off, I would recommend reading/listening to a friend, so I guess it wasn't all that bad.

The only downfall is the girls talking about the Cliff. It hints around what happened but, never really spells it out which I really wish it would have. I made an assumption but, not sure if accurate.
