Surrounded by the whiteness of the blizzard’s snow, Theodora Hayes was determined to rekindle a love she walked away from many years ago. Instead, she found murder, betrayal, and, yes, love and its wicked dark past. The Lie is a story of many plots, all threading together in a mixture of romance, history, murder, mystery, and adventure, with a dash of humor thrown in for good measure.

Ms. Rose Gargiulo’s first novel, Love Lost Adventure, The Lie, whets your appetite with intriguing characters whose lives, though separated through the trials and tragedies of life, are deeply interwoven. Through thwarted desire and twists of fate, mysteries are solved and destiny speaks, leaving the reader totally and utterly satisfied, while concurrently wanting more. In short, Ms. Gargiulo keeps you totally hooked. Love Lost Adventure, The Lie, was such a joyful read, with just enough raunchiness to make your cheeks a little, dare I say, rosy. I cannot wait for the sequel. 5 stars.
