House of Lies by Terry Lynn Thomas

Cat is a strong-willed determined and resourceful woman.

This is book three in the Cat Carlisle mystery series. Without having read the previous two books, I did just fine with the characters and plot.

Standalone vs. Series

That being said, there’s a lot of characters, relationships and backstory to keep track of. So, while this can be read as a stand-alone, it may be a more enjoyable read to start from book 1. There’s a lot of loose strings but everything comes together and is woven into a beautiful story.


Any BBC fan, Anglophile or history buff will eat up House of Lies by Terry Lynn Thomas. Even though this story takes place during WW II there’s a hint of the Me Too move my which I quite enjoy. Without giving anything else away, this is an imaginative, engrossing and fulfilling read.
