The Last Lie by Leann Harris

In this inspirational romance suspense, when Catherine Lyons comes home from college at Christmas she discovers her family has disappeared, vanished, leaving her alone.

Fifteen years later when Catherine is on vacation in France, she sees her father getting on a bus, but he's had a stroke. When she tries to talk to him the nurse taking care of him won't allow it. Cat shows up at the clinic the next day, but the people there claim to know nothing of the man. This time Cat isn't going to give up. She learns the nurse she talked to and goes to her apartment and finds her dead.

Colin Montrose is with MI-6 and doesn't know who this woman is who has stumbled into his operation, but he wants to know. He follows Cat and asks is she murdered the nurse. Before she can answer, they hear police sirens and flee. Together, Cat and Colin chase after Cat's father, trying to discover the truth behind her life and her parents' lives. 


I don't normally read suspense but I was asked to review this book and I know the author's work, so I didn't hesitate. I found myself caught up quite quickly trying to unravel the mysteries at the same time the characters did. I loved Cat and Colin and some of the secondary ones. Cat is strong and smart. She doesn't miss a trick. And Colin is good at what he does. He is quick to make up stories to explain why he is someplace and why he knows certain people. But Cat is quick to see through his lies. Even though she knows he is lying, she can't help feeling that there is more to it. 

If you like suspense and intrigue you will love this book. It has some romance but there is nothing inappropriate for younger readers so I would recommend this book to any age, teen and up.
