Blog Tour - Portrait of Lies Review and Giveaway



About the book: It was a robbery gone bad, or so they said. For Detective Trey Shotwell, the murder of his mother, a prominent artist, was the catalyst for setting aside his own artistic aspirations to pursue a career in law enforcement—despite the opposition of his father, also a famous painter. When he agrees to attend an art auction featuring his father’s work, the cruise ship locale provides the relaxation Trey needs. And when he meets stunning fellow passenger Aariah Stanton, the undeniable chemistry they share is an unexpected bonus.

But the tranquil voyage quickly turns into a nightmare at sea. The Shotwell paintings have disappeared, and amidst the chaotic hunt for the thief, a murderer is free to roam the halls of the ship. Aariah finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time and miraculously escapes the murderer—for now. But another victim is not so lucky . . .

The crime is eerily reminiscent of the death of Trey’s mother so many years before. But this time, the young detective has the resources he needs to track the killer. As the pieces of the puzzle begin to come together, they paint the chilling picture of a sinister plot years in the making. In a manhunt that takes him from the high seas of the Pacific to the wilderness of Australia, Trey will stop at nothing to solve the crime and protect the woman he loves.

My review: I loved this book! Clair Poulson writes the best suspense novels! He does a really great job with the characters and the suspense. I thought that Trey was a really well-written character. He seemed like he could be someone that I knew and liked. I liked that he wanted to find his mom's killer as a child and he really never wavered from that desire, even though his dad would have loved for him to become an artist. I also liked that he joined the LDS Church, again against his dad's desires, at least initially. And then there's the way that he treats Aariah. He is a true gentleman who notices a pretty girl and goes out of his way to help her when she mentions something that makes her uncomfortable.

I loved the setting of this book, I would love to be on a cruise between Australia and New Zealand. They are both on my list of places I want to visit! 

This book scared me just a bit, because who wants to be stuck on a cruise with a killer??? Not me! Another thing that was kind of crazy was just how many suspects there are for the murders. Any one of them could have done it, but just who could Trey and Aariah trust?

This book is a great one that will keep you up at night trying to figure out just who the thief and killer is!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
