✱✱Book Review✱✱ Truth, Lies, and Second Dates by MaryJanice Davidson


Truth, Lies, and Second Dates is a sweet and sassy contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author MaryJanice Davidson.

Captain Ava Capp has been flying from her past for a decade. She’d much rather leave it, and her home state, behind forever. But when she finds herself back in Minnesota, against her better judgment, everything goes sideways in a way she never expected it to.

M.E. Dr. Tom Baker has never forgotten Ava and the cold case she ran away from. When she shows up unexpectedly in town, in spite of himself, sparks fly. Which is terrible because he can’t stop his growing attraction to her. Can these two Type-A’s let their guards down and work together to put Ava’s tragic past behind her for good? And keep their hands off each other at the same time?

Momma Says: 1 star⭐

A "sweet and sassy contemporary romance." That's what's promised in the first line of the blurb, and maybe I'm just naive, but I expected that when I started reading. What I found was... well, it was a hot mess. I think there was an attempt to make Ava come across as quirky, but her dialogue, her thoughts, her actions were all just a big ball of confusion much of the time. The story is all over the place, and it reached a point where I was setting it aside far too easily. To be honest, a lot of the story felt like it was still in the development stage, and it just fell flat. This is my first experience with this author, so I don't know if this is typical of her writing style, but the storyline seriously lacks continuity, and the whole thing feels scattered to me. Maybe it's just me, and this is only one person's opinion, but this book did not work for me.
