Nadene's Satin Sheets Review of Cradle of Lies by Rebecca E Grant

GENRE:  Contemporary Western Romance
LENGTH:  211 pages

BLURB:  What can a man hope for when he’s spent the first sixteen years of his life forced to witness some of the most heinous murders ever committed?

When Cord Archer first meets Mattie Rayne, her smile heats him like the summer sun, bleaching him clean. Nothing else matters except to make her his. Before he can do that, his conscience compels him to explain why he entered an institution at age sixteen and spent five years learning to read, write, and function in mainstream society.

Upon learning that Cord is the son of a notorious psychopathic serial-killer, Mattie realizes how miraculous it is that he survived, much less made it all the way back from crazy. The knowledge only makes her love him more. Just when it would seem Cord is finally about to know love, two phenomenally staggering events irrevocably change the course of his life. First, a sociopath becomes fixated on him. Next, his daddy escapes from prison with the sole intent of tracking him down. 

Now, anyone in Cord’s life is at risk because the only thing deadlier than a psychopath is the random unpredictability of a sociopath. God help the man who has to contend with both.

NADENE'S REVIEW:  After completing this title I was a bit skeptical as to whether I would be able to write a review that would be worthy of such an awesome, exciting and riveting read.  I am still trying to recover from the emotional ride that the author took me on.  I experienced quite an array of emotions while reading this title. I experienced moments of sadness, happiness and fear. 

This was a quite an interesting read which had my attention from the very beginning.  The story was well paced.  Character development was quite good.  I particular liked Cord the main male character. He had been through a lot and yet he chose not to follow the path that had been set by his dad who was serial killer. He, however had to live with the stigma which had a serious effect on his relationship with others.

It was good to see him find love with Mattie and be able to overcome his past.  
My least favourite character is Riley. 

She was a manipulative and sick person. She was intent on destroying Cord and any happiness he may experience.  Due to his experience with his father he was able to recognize what a sick person she really is.

Cradle of Lies is filled with drama. suspense, mystery and romance.  It had me turning the pages as I could not wait to find out what was going to happen next.  This is a book that keeps you guessing and the answers are quite shocking.   It is one of those stories that you will have you talking about it days after you have finished reading.

Cradle of Lies shows that with love, support and determination we can overcome our past and become the best we can be.  This is definitely a must read and I would  recommend that you get a copy as you will enjoy every moment.
