Why do we cheat?

What are the countless ways in which we cheat others, even those we love?

Beth is a woman who (unbeknownst to her family and friends) has given up a free ride to Yale, rejecting her peers and instead marrying Mark, an unpretentious computer technician. Beth wanted salt-of-the-earth. She feared ending up erudite and alone, like Emily Dickinson. Yet she finds herself more isolated than ever as Mark’s wife.

Brad is a man who has married Kara, a promiscuous woman who is upfront about her past. They have a daughter, Katlin. Brad thinks he has outsmarted the competition who wrote Kara off as a common floozy. Eventually he realizes that he has been grading her on a curve--giving her bonus points just to make himself feel superior and wise.

Beth and Brad meet at a party, and their affinity is immediate. A few days later, Brad calls her, and their affair soon begins. As it progresses, they begin to take more risks to see each other.

It soon becomes clear that the events Beth and Brad have set in motion have much more serious ramifications than they could have ever realized.


My thoughts about Two Truths and a Lie ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"If Beth had known that such small things, a bathing suit or a pair of glasses, could change a life, she might have done things differently."

Two Truths and a Lie is an interesting look at the lives of two people who find themselves attracted to each other, and who eventually act on their attraction. As the affair progresses, it no longer becomes just a lark between two people, it affects all of those around them. 

There's a nice variety of characters in this story, some who will touch your heart and then others you just want to throttle. As the story comes to an end, the reader can't help but understand the true cost of an innocent flirtation that turns into so much more. 

Two Truths and a Lie is a great story about relationships, with believable characters, about a topic that is very real in our society. I look forward to reading more of this author's stories. 

Thank you to H.A. Price for a copy of Two Truths and a Lie. This is my honest review.
