Lovely and intelligent Madison Alexander wants one thing only; to live an honest life. So when she finds herself boarding a train with her con-artist father, having to leave behind the only normalcy she’s ever known at Miss Emma Willard’s School For Young Ladies, she can’t help but feel angry, disappointed, confused, and unsure about the future. Will the lies and broken promises ever end? How could Maddie possibly think clearly when she isn’t sure who might catch up with them first; The Pinkerton Agency or the vindictive Sicilian family? When her father dies suddenly from a heart attack, she’s left to figure it all out on her own. Still in shock, Maddie meets a handsome young doctor named David Reynolds and thinks that this may be the perfect way to blend in. When the train stops at Ketchum, will she start a new life that she can be proud of or be forced to carry on the legacy of lies and deceit to survive?
Redeeming Lies by Samantha St. Claire is the fourth installment in the Sawtooth Range Series. Samantha St. Claire delivers a well-researched historical romance mystery that had me smiling through tears as I turned the last page. The characters are likable and full of depth, and I thoroughly enjoyed the vivid descriptions of the terrain, era, and the overall canvas of the story. My favorite character, Maddie, is fiery, intelligent, honorable, and ready to handle anything that comes her way. A true survivor. I highly recommend Redeeming Lies to anyone who enjoys a smart, romantic read. Five stars!
