Elizabeth Ludwig and Janelle Mowery's Where the Truth Lies ~ Reviewed

Where the Truth Lies
By Elizabeth Ludwig & Janelle Mowry
Published by Heartsong Presents
ISBN 978-1-59789-530-9

Back Cover:

A case of suicide leads an amateur sleuth on a trail of deceit and corruption...
Casey Alexander refuses to believe that her aunt committed suicide. Convinced a murderer is hiding out in her aunt's sleepy hometown, she'll do anything to uncover the truth. But as her personal investigation produces mounting evidence, the danger to Casey grows. Now she'll be forced to trust certain residents of Pine Mills for help, including local nursery owner Luke Kerrigan...the man with whom shells falling in love...and who may be stalking her.

Prompted by strange clues and a mysterious stranger, Casey does a little more digging. The secrets she unearths will turn lives upside down and threaten the peace ion Pine Mills' small community—especially when she discovers that the truth can sometimes be hidden in a lie.


Where the Truth Lies has more twists that a bag of rotini. You won't guess the end of this quirky mystery, and when you get the answer to one clue, it merely opens the door to more secrets. The surprises keep coming right up to the end.

Well written, Ludwig and Mowery have blended their personal styles seamlessly in this fast-paced mystery. I'm looking forward to more from this talented team. Novel Reviews gives Where the Truth Lies a high recommendation.

What has four arms, four legs, four eyes, and one heart. Lisa Ludwig and Janelle Mowery! (Better known as Liselle in some circles.) These two will masterfully manipulate your mind along the garden path to crime resolution. But what a ride. Great job on your book girls. Can hardly wait for the sequel.

What a great review! I am enjoying the Heartsong books so much and can hardly wait to get my hands on this one.

Great job, ladies!

Another great read coming up in my stack of HP Mysteries. Who knew so many different plots could be fashioned into fun reads!
Great job Liselle. Thanks Ane for telling us more.

Great review and right on target! I think I'm almost as thrilled as Lisa and Janelle to see this book in print. After all, I feel like I helped birth this baby. I'm anxiously awaiting the sequel, Liselle.

LOLOL!! Y'all are so funny. You know this whole "Liselle" thing is going to explode and pretty soon people are going to start pyscho-analyzing us--wondering why we have this alter ego.

Marcia, we (Janelle, Liselle, and I) blame you.
