The Lies That Bind - a new romance, a tragic day, lots of deceit.

Cecily and her boyfriend Matthew have just broken up. While in a NYC bar, Cecily meets Grant. A man who seems too good to be true. The immediate chemistry between the two of them was instant and a romance begins. While Grant quickly declares his love for Cecily, things are just a little off with Mr. Perfect.

The tragedy of 9/11 ends everything and Cecily and Matthew find their way back to each other. New lies are told. Old lies are uncovered. I’ll leave it at that as anything more would be a spoiler.

The Lies That Bind describes the horror, chaos and grief surrounding 9/11. Any book that involves that terrible day stirs personal feelings. It’s a touchy subject to tackle. The events in the book are a bit far fetched but I felt this was a worthwhile read. You’ll want to know how it all turns out. I'm conflicted by this book as I wanted to love it. Instead, I liked it enough to share it but only with reservation.
