TRUST ME, I’M LYING, by Mary Elizabeth Summer


The story: When Julep’s father, who’s been teaching her the business of the con for years, goes missing, he leaves a trail of clues that will explain the reasons and help her find him. Julep has to use all her grifting skills to follow the trail–and has to involve several friends at her exclusive private school to help her. But when the trail leads straight into the arms of the Ukrainian mob, even best friend Sam’s hacking skills and hottie-boyfriend-wannabe Tyler’s family political connections may not be enough to keep her from following her dad’s example…right into the same set of cement shoes.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you like this one, there’s no need to wait for the upcoming sequel–instead, check out “Loot” by Jude Watson and “Con Academy” by Joe Schreiber.  Cons galore!
