Maddie Faraday discovers her husband, Brent, is a lying cheat when she generously agrees to wash his car for him. She finds a pair of black lace crotchless panties under the front seat. One of her first thoughts is that now she can leave him.

Leaving a man who doesn't beat you or drink up his paycheck isn't easy in the small town of Frog Point, and Brent is running for mayor so he's careful to keep his reputation spotless. Maddie needs to find out who the other woman is.

Before she can, Brent is murdered and Maddie becomes a suspect. Gossip labels her a murderess and when her old high school boyfriend shows up in town, adulteress is added to her list of sins. The school bad boy when he deflowered Maddie in high school, C. L. Sturgis is as sexy as ever after twenty years, and he's a changed man, ready to take on the town to help Maddie.

Crusie is at her best in this romantic romp with a mystery thrown in. If you're in the mood for light and humorous, Tell Me Lies won't disappoint.
