At Holden Prep, dirty little secrets always have a way of coming to the surface.
Eleanor Ames has never been what she seems. Average high school student on the outside, but reformed con artist trying to break free of her past on the inside. When Eleanor receives startling news about someone from her previous criminal life, plans for a new operation coinciding with her school's upcoming field trip quickly consume her.
But operations rarely go according to plan. And this is one her irresistible teen FBI agent boyfriend, Miles, would never approve of.
Now, more than just Ellie's reputation is at stake. If she fails, it could be her life.
Hiding Lies by Julie Cross
The premise of this series is there is a group of teens who have been recruited or are attending a specialized school to make them into spies.
Eleanor’s family made up of criminals. She was used by the FBI to entrap her father, but this plan backfired, and her mother was sent to jail. Eleanor would do anything to get her mom free, including working with the FBI again to capture her father.
But her father now has some very unsavory partners that are extremely dangerous. Putting Eleanor, her boyfriend and fellow spy in training, and classmates all in the sites of this extremely volatile criminal empire. All the while there are still rogue agents and they don’t know who they can trust and whether they can even trust each other.
This would of been straight out 5 stars for me but in the end it lost 1 stars and I think its because of my personal life experiences. Being a parent of recent teens, I had a hard time getting past 16-18 yr old, one minute talking about breaking a group rogue FBI and others in the government with the FBI and CIA... and then talking about mom and dad. I know, I know fiction... But once I got past that, Cross provided an amazing, riveting and well balanced conspiracy, secret agent, romantic thriller.
I received this ARC copy of Hiding Lies from Entangled Publishing, LLC. This is my honest and voluntary review. Hiding Lies is set for publication April 17, 2018.
