Something about this book caught my eye. Then the story was outrageous enough to catch my interest and get me reading. Truth, Lies, and Second Dates by MaryJanice Davidson was actually a fun read.
It is the third book in a series, but you do not have to have read the series to appreciate this book. There are some references to characters who may exist in other books, but nothing so distracting as to take away from the story here.
Lots of twists and unexpected quirkiness in this book. The MC is witty and amusing, but also admirable. Her love interest is unusual and improbable, but I enjoyed the interaction all the same.
The Book Blurb
Captain Ava Capp has been flying from her past for a decade. She’d much rather leave it, and her home state, behind forever. But when she finds herself back in Minnesota, against her better judgment, everything goes sideways in a way she never expected it to.
I suppose I would give the book a 4.5 stars if pressed–mainly because I am still puzzled at how young the primary characters are in the book. I am still processing how both could be the ages mentioned and have the careers they do.
This was a book I read in one long sitting, which is always a good sign. Enjoyable.
