by Lisa Unger
Genre: Adult Mystery/Thriller/Suspense
Review: Unger's breakout novel, published in 2006. This book is as compulsively readable as a novel by Laura Lippman. It reminds me of Inception in the sense that the rug is pulled out from beneath the main character' feet. She can never look at the world in the same way again. Ridley Jones is a magazine writer who saves a young boy; her fame brings her: a mysterious love interest, a newspaper clipping, and a photo of a woman who looks exactly like her. Will she believe in the beautiful lies or search for the truth?
Song to Read By: "Part of Me" by Katy Perry

The sequel to Beautiful Lies is called Sliver of Truth, but I have not yet read this book. Currently I am reading Die for Me by Lisa Unger (review to come soon).
