Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good summer read I enjoy Krentz's Arcane Society series, so I liked White Lies. The paranormal aspects are an interesting twist to the usual "romance novel" genre, and the fact that Krentz's heroines are always fiesty, and independently-minded and smart helps add to the interest as well. This book is set in present day, and has a fair amount of mystery and excitement surrounding the murder investigation. There's also a complicated family situation that adds to the tension levels and gives the protagonists something to work through. I liked this. If you're into the paranormal stuff this is a good beach or porch read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A thin line between lies and truths. Clare Lancaster is a level-ten parasensitive. She’s a human lie detector. She can detect the smallest whiff of a lie, even if wrapped in the truth. She’d saved her new-found sister from her now dead husband, knowing that he was doing Elizabeth harm - she wasn’t having a nervous breakdown, but he was doing everything in his power to make it appear so. She’d returned to save her sister, only to come upon his dead body. Now she’s back at the request of her new-found father, less than a year later. She doesn’t want to be there but when at her mother’s urging. He wants to offer her a job, similar to ones she’s held before, but she doesn’t want the charity - both butt heads too strongly to work side-by-side. But since she’s there, she’s determined to find out what happened to Brad to clear her name. Jake Salter is a business ‘consultant’ for her father. She asks questions where the answers surprise her: most of his answers are a mix of truths and lies. The more her life is threatened, the more determined Jake is to stick to her like glue. For Jake is an agent with Jones & Jones, the Arcane Society’s detective agency, and he’s now just as determined to find out what’s going on as Clare is. Right from the beginning, there is a pull between Jake and Clare. Jakes knows what he’s feeling, and is even more determined to keep Clare alive after two close calls. What I liked was how the characters communicated. Even though they had differences of opinions, arguments, issues, they talked them out, they listened to each other. Even though both are somewhat mule-headed, they still take into account the others feelings and opinions, and that was nice to read. And just when you think you’re getting what the mystery is, a twist brings it to a whole new level. I really enjoyed the banter with several of the characters, the mystery, the action, the love scenes. All well written. Krentz is one hell of an author.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from S'okay Although I've enjoyed several JAK novels, this one was only lukewarm. It was okay for a quick read (similar to a HQN type novel). There wasn't anything great about it but at the same time, it wasn't bad. I hope her next Arcane novel is better.

About the Author

Amanda Quick is a pseudonym of romance writer Jayne Ann Krentz. Historical fiction is the specialty of this particular persona; Krentz uses Jayne Castle for the author's name on her futuristic pieces. The first three Quick books, Surrender, Scandal and Seduction, launched a pattern of sets of three with the same letter beginning each title. Fans had great fun trying to anticipate what the next title would be, some expecting a particular word to be spelled out. Krentz spoiled the fun by following the book, Affair, with the title, With This Ring in 1998. Amanda Quick has plenty of company in the fertile mind of Jayne Ann Krentz. In addition to Jayne Castle and Quick, Krentz has also written under the names Jayne Bentley, Amanda Glass, Stephanie James and Jayne Taylor.
