Tangled Lies by Connie Mann

Tangled Lies was a treat to read! I've read Mann's work before, so I knew to expect solid writing and great chemistry between the main characters. What I didn't expect was how deftly she wove the plot. It kept me guessing! I love thrillers and mysteries and romantic suspense, but I can usually guess who the villain is, what they want, etc, before the end of the book. Not so with this one. Mann dropped enough hints so that I was constantly formulating theories, but I could never exactly solve the mystery. Kept me hooked!! And yet, when I reached the end, everything just fell into place.
I also love Mann's ability to show sexual tension in a clean way. She writes CLEAN romances that are great for spiritual and nonspiritual audiences. She knows how to write realistic passion without overstepping the boundaries of her genre. I really, really enjoyed this book. Great characters and I hope that the heroine's sisters will get their Happily Ever After in future books! I'm eagerly awaiting those stories.

Review by Amy at Building Life's Library and seeing things I've never seen

Amy at Building Life's Library did a wonderful review of The Matchmaker's Match!

It always surprises me when people pick up on things about my characters that I didn't even realize were there. I'm not a plotter nor do I plan in-depth characterization. My characters come to me and I do my best to write them as they are but then...I have to edit a lot. ;-)

I'm so happy she liked Amelia and Spencer!

Do your characters ever surprise you? Do people see you differently than you see yourself?
