Kelly Irvin
Bestseller Kelly Irvin is the author of fourteen books, including Amish romance and romantic suspense. Publishers Weekly called A Deadly Wilderness “a solid romantic suspense debut.” She followed up with No Child of Mine. The two-time ACFW Carol finalist worked as a newspaper reporter for six years writing stories on the Texas-Mexico border. Those experiences fuel her romantic suspense novels set in Texas. A retired public relations professional, Kelly now writes fiction full-time. She lives with her husband, photographer Tim Irvin, in San Antonio. They are the parents of two children, two grandchildren, and two ornery cats. Visit Kelly online at her website

From the back cover:
Even the most admired families have secrets to hide…

Nina Fischer carries a camera wherever she goes—so she can view life through a filter. Safely. After her mother abandoned her to the streets, Nina has kept people at a distance, including her uncle, who adopted Nina and her sister. Wealthy and proud, he is a good man, a fair judge, and someone many in San Antonio admire.

But when he is murdered, and the detective assigned to the case accuses Nina of the crime, she knows she must act. She’s determined to use her journalism background to find the real killer. The two men in her life want to help, but can she trust them? She’s known Rick since they were children, but now he’s an attorney whose political aspirations seem more important than Nina’s tragic loss. And then there’s Aaron, a news videographer; using their friendship could break the biggest story of his career.

Following the evidence leads Nina on a journey of discovery into her father’s shocking masquerade as a law-abiding, family-loving Christian. Unlocking these secrets could prove fatal, but it’s the only way Nina will ever be able to trust love again.

Combining romance and suspense, bestselling author Kelly Irvin’s Tell Her No Lies is a high-stakes race for the truth.

From Jo:
This is the first romantic suspense novel by Kelly Irvin I have read. I enjoyed it very much, just as I enjoy her Amish novels. The suspense kept me turning pages and at times I wasn’t sure I knew who the criminal was. The suspense continues in Nina's choosing between the two men in her life.

I’m offering a paperback copy of Tell Her No Lies to one commenter to this blog post.
