Kisses and Lies by Lauren Henderson

I'm feeling lazy again today, so here's the synopsis from

After discovering that someone saw what looked like Dan’s emergency EpiPen in A-lister Plum’s designer handbag, Scarlett and her tough American sidekick, Taylor, sneak into a posh London nightclub, where Plum has a private table. Scarlett is stunned to discover a piece of evidence that might implicate another girl in Plum’s exclusive circle, Lucy Raleigh. Which means Scarlett must cast a wider net in order to catch the right suspect. Back at school, groundskeeper Jase is hoping to take Scarlett’s mind off her troubles with some heart-stopping kisses. Scarlett can’t help but feel guilty for indulging in romantic rendezvous when she should be hunting down Dan’s killer. However, once Scarlett finds out how Lucy is connected to Dan, she knows she must drop everything and travel to the McAndrew estate in Scotland to hunt for more clues. But when she arrives, Scarlett becomes the target of a dangerous hunt herself.

I loved Kisses and Lies even more than I loved Kiss Me Kill Me. And I REALLY liked Kiss Me Kill Me. You can read my review of that here.
I was really surprised by who Dan's murderer turned out to be. The person's reasoning behind it was also rather shocking. Like I said in my review of Kiss Me Kill Me, I can't get enough of the British dialect. It's just fascinating to me for some reason. The ending was quite satisfying and even made me laugh a little. This novel definitely kept my attention all the way through. I recommend Kisses and Lies if you liked Kiss Me Kill Me. Also, general chick lit or mystery fans will eat this book up.

5 out of 5 stars


  1. I got this one in the mail so I got Kiss Me Kill Me at the library and can't wait to begin. They both look amazing!

  2. The reasoning for the killing really shocked me too. I liked this book too but I preferred the first one. I can't wait to find out what happens next!

  3. I really want to read this! Nice review!
