Get to Know a Good Liar

Want to get to know a liar? There are plenty of them around. But one in particular is well worth spending some time with. And the best way to get to know her is to read her steamy diary.

I recently put down The Liar's Diary by my friend and fellow author Patry Francis. It really was the kind of book that was hard to put down, each chapter ending on a cliffhanger that made you want to read on.

The story may sound usual enough on the surface: Jeanne Cross is a suburban wife in a dead-end job living in the shadow of a successful husband and in fear of her teenaged son getting into trouble. But when the main character gets to be friends with the scandalous new music teacher, the story proves anything but normal.

Patry has written a novel that is both a page-turner and of literary quality. She even got the attention of bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard, who said "The Liar's Diary twits and turns but never lets go." And bestselling author Tess Gerritsen said, "This is one of my favorite reads of the year!"

Learn more about The Liar's Diary by visiting Patry's website below. Then take the next step and order a copy for yourself.
