Blog Tour: Review of State of Lies by Siri Mitchell

Author: Siri Mitchell
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Publication date:August 2019

The secrets of those closest to us can be the most dangerous of all.
Months after her husband, Sean, is killed by a hit-and-run driver, physicist Georgie Brennan discovers he lied to her about where he had been going that day. A cryptic notebook, a missing computer, and strange noises under her house soon have her questioning everything she thought she knew.
With her job hanging by a thread, her son struggling to cope with his father’s death, and her four-star general father up for confirmation as the next Secretary of Defense, Georgie quickly finds herself tangled in a political intrigue that has no clear agenda and dozens of likely villains. Only one thing is clear: someone wants her dead too.
The more she digs for the truth, the fewer people she can trust.
Not her friends.
Not her parents.
Maybe not even herself.
In State of Lies, Georgie's husband is killed in a car accident.  Months later, she begins to discover that her husband may not have been who she thought he was.  As she uncovers the many secrets he kept, she realizes that her son and herself are in danger.  I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book.  I'm not usually into spy novels, but I love to try out new books.  I am excited when they end up being as good as this one.

I read this book in one sitting.   I was sucked right in and didn't want to put it down until I found out the truth along with Georgie.  The plot was laid out very well with just the right amount of information doled out at the right time.  I was kept guessing, although I did call one plot line. But I didn't mind because there were still many surprises. I loved Georgie's character.  She came across realistically as a grieving widow trying to put her life back together and push forward for her and her child.  I could sympathize with her inner struggle about whether or not to delve into the things she had uncovered.  

I won't say much else about the book as I won't want to spoil anything.  I highly recommend this one.
