TRUTH BE TOLD by Hank Phillippi Ryan

Know what I love?

I love that I know smart people who write terrific books.

Especially when it's a book that I can squeal about, not because a friend happened to write it, but because it's so damned good.

I've been a fan of Hank's since her first Charlotte novel (which I'm still hoping to see more of).

Her newer series, the Jane Ryland/Jake Brogan series showcases Hank's talents in her writing world and in her world of Emmy winning investigative reporting.

TRUTH BE TOLD is my favorite in the series, so far.

It starts with a middle-class family evicted from their suburban home.  Jane discovers more than she bargained for while digging into this.  

Ms. Ryan has a particula writing style that keeps me on the edge of my seat and turning pages late into the night.

The relationship between Jane and Jake is never easy, and is fraught with frustration.  They're both so likable, we keep pulling for them both.

And along the way we meet some interesting characters - one in particular I hope pops in again (and maybe again) as the series continues.

Another well plotted, twisty, full of surprises novel from Hank Phillippi Ryan.  The woman is amazing.
