Publisher's Summary

When her dating app decides she's a man, what's a lonely lesbian to do?

Jamie Richards is a scientist who embraces reason - except when it comes to romance. Tired of her impulsive streak leaving her heartbroken, she's determined to do everything right the next time she's in love. But her resolve crumbles when a technical glitch matches her with perfection in Claire, a woman who lives on the opposite side of the country. Who is straight. And under the impression that Jamie's a guy. But Jamie can't help being smitten. Would one tiny lie be so terrible if it gets her closer to the woman of her dreams?

Claire Flores is a dreamer and a believer in signs, but she has a secret that keeps her cautious about love. All she wants is a picture-perfect family of her own, but she's never met a man who attracts her. Until now. Throwing caution to the wind, she goes from Portland to Boston to meet Jay, her online love. Instead, she meets Jamie, his work colleague, who befriends her in Jay's unexpected absence. Claire's heart is aflutter. Jamie stirs up feelings Claire never knew possible, but how close can she get without having to admit that she's been lying to herself about her dreams all along?

What starts as a simple fib soon snowballs as Jamie fabricates increasingly ridiculous tales to keep her identity as Jay under wraps, until a comedy of errors threatens to topple the whole charade to the ground. Can true love prevail when it's founded on a lie?

Cute and happy

Miranda MacLeod’s books always leave me feeling good after a great story and a few laughs. This one was no different. Though both main characters can be frustrating I couldn’t help but love them

Mistakenly Happy

enjoyable with a few cringey moments of being dumb and in love. So worth it.

Light romance

The book was light romance with a w|w twist, nothing spectacular, but still worth listening.

Telling Lies Online

If you could sum up Telling Lies Online in three words, what would they be?

Take a chance.

Have you listened to any of Stephanie Murphy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've never listened to her other books, but I thought she did a great job on this one.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Lying is bad?

Fun,Sweet, and Touching

For the first two thirds of the book you get a sweet and funny romantic comedy. Jamie, Paul and Clair are great characters and you enjoy seeing how this one unfolds into love. The final third is an amazing roller coaster that tugs at our heart strings, great twists and turns with an ending that leaves you smiling. Highly recommended for book that made laugh out loud multiple times and still brought forth a touching story that will linger with you.

Plot Writer Please

This one began as a good original story; a love story between two PHD's. Then they veered off into a weak movie, no make that television plot. You see one of the women decides to lie about something important, that is totally stupid because if they ever meet the lie will be all too obvious. So of course the liar is soon confronted by the the one lied to (the Liee maybe?) So of course now another lie is the obvious thing to do and of course it's just as ridiculous as the first lie and, oh never mind, you get the picture. Obviously I wasn't at all impressed by this effort; it's a shame too because certain elements of this piece of lesbian fiction were excellent. There was no reason why the author should have chosen to fall back on such a weak worn out plot device.

another good listen from MacLeod

I enjoyed listening to this book even though there were moments when i was tired of Claire being so dumb and gullible ,but, in the end, it all ended nicely.

should be a YA book

Story line felt really Juvenile. Narrator's choice of voice for Claire felt like she was a twelve-year-old and very whiny. I couldn't make it thru the entire book. love scene and build up sounded like 2 16 year olds. Don't waste your money

LIght and funny

Any additional comments?

This was a light and fun listen, with a really improbable story that had me groaning at times because of the lies that Jamie Richards was telling. However you might normalise her behaviour, it was mostly irrational and made an honest person like me quite uncomfortable. That said, the scrapes she got herself and Claire into were interesting and I spent some time waiting for the denouement, having expected it all to unravel some time before it did. If you want something to listen to that entertains, at the same time makes you squirm with embarrassment and have you wondering how this is all going to pan out, then go buy this.
