If Ridley Jones had slept ten minutes later or had taken the subway instead of waiting for a cab, she would still be living the beautiful lie she used to call her life. She would still be the privileged daughter of a doting father and a loving mother. Her life would still be perfect--with only tiny cracks to mar the otherwise flawless whole. But that's not what happened. Instead, those inconsequential decisions lead her to perform a good deed that puts her in the right place at the right time to unleash a chain of events that brings a mysterious package to her door--a package which informs her that her entire world is a lie. Suddenly forced to question everything she knows about herself and her family, she has no idea who's on her side and who has something to hide--even, and maybe especially, her new lover.--From publisher description.

Review: Beautiful Lies (Ridley Jones #1)

User Review  - Jennifer Masterson - Goodreads

I really enjoyed this book. This was my first Lisa Unger book but it will definitely not be my last. Beautiful Lies was easy to get into and it kept my interest throughout. Just a fun mystery/thriller/romance and not to mention I absolutely loved the main character, Ridley. Read full review
