    9. "Tell Me No Lies" is the best yet from Lynn Chandler Willis. Many women will identify will the strong character she has created in Ava Logan. She puts her readers right in the heart of small town drama and shady politics. The story is both heart-wrenching and heart-warming but never boring. It will keep you guessing. I look forward to the next mystery.

    10. Lynn had me hooked from page 1! Ava Logan is just a small-town single mother who doesn't seem to be able to catch a break. This book had me in tears, laughing, falling in love and unable to put it down! Set in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, it was a quick read that had me disappointed it ended.

    13. “Well-drawn characters, a dash of romance, and enough logically constructed red herrings to keep the reader guessing right up to the end distinguish this tightly woven tale.” – Publishers Weekly

    14. This first book in the series is an enjoyable book with interesting characters. The story flows well, there is enough 'mystery' in it to keep the reader interested. The author also put in a generous amount of love and a touch of humour. Ava Logan promises to be an interesting main character of a nice readable series, although I hope the author will broaden the background a little. Since Ava is living in a small village, with only so many people in it, it would be awkward is she was to find a dea [...]

    15. This is the first book in the series and the first book I have read by the author Lynn Chandler Willis. I found this first book in the series to be an enjoyable book with interesting characters. The story flows well, and the mystery in it to keep the reader interested. I did love that the chapters were short since I usually only have 15 minutes a day at lunch to read from a book.

    16. Awesome read!! I love a good mystery & Tell Me No Lies delivers a gripping story. This is the first in the Ava Logan series & I am so excited for the next book.I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    17. The cozy mystery crowd will probably like this. It's a basic mystery with a lot of home life thrown in. The plot, tightly woven. The characters, not all that likeable. The writing, rather prosaic. I did finish it, though.

    18. I could not put this book down. It kept me guessing right up to the end. I loved the characters in this book.

    19. I do enjoy a good who-done-it! The story itself was interesting, and I didn't quite see the end coming - always a plus. My main complaint will be silly to some, but here it is:: I'm all about a fictitious town/setting, even within a real area - in this case, Jackson Creek (fake) set in the High Country/BRP area (real, I live there). BUT!! She also created a "fake" county - Jackson County which does exist in the mountains of NC, but 2 hours SW and in the Great Smokies, not the Blue Ridge. And sin [...]

    20. Small town thriller that packs a big punch. I was very quickly caught up in the story. Ava Logan is a well written everyday woman trying to juggle work, kids and now her friends murder. You won't be disappointed in this book.

    21. An extremely enjoyable and well-written read. The first-person, conversational tone made me feel as if Ava was a friend of mine – telling me her story.  She is easy to identify with – a caring mother with a complicated past of her own that shapes her decision making.  You can feel her attachment to Ivy growing, and know she would do whatever she can help ensure the child’s safety and future well-being.  At the same time, her feelings of guilt over something in her past keep her f [...]

    22. The first book that I read by this author was "Say Nothing" I enjoyed it very much and gave it a 5 star rating. I highly recommend it. Naturally I was very happy to learn her next book would be the start of a new series. Buy it, or borrow it you will enjoy it. Tell Me No Lies is terrific start and I predict it will have you eager for her next entry in the series. It is an atmospheric page turner set in Appalachia and populated with a host of interesting characters. I expect that "Tell Me No Lies [...]

    23. ****Copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review****Ava is a single mum who runs a local newspaper while bringing up her two children. One day she's been looking after her best friend's baby when she discovers her friend's body. Suddenly she's caught up in a murder investigation rather than reporting on one and it brings her into contact - and conflict - with the local sheriff, who was her late husband's partner on the police force. Soon Ava herself is a target as she tries to juggle her w [...]

    24. Tell Me No Lies is an outstanding mystery. While marketed as the first book in the Ava Logan Mystery Series, it reads as a standalone. If the author Lynn Chandler Willis has more adventures in mind for the main character Ava, I am excited at the prospect.A woman is brutally murdered as Ava Logan, a widowed mother of two, babysits her adorable toddler, Ivy. Who would murder this beautiful, young artist and why? Representing law enforcement, handsome Sheriff Grayson Ridge, and Ava, small town news [...]

    25. 3.75 starsThis debut series novel was a gripping read. The characters are real, and they manage to capture our interest with their flaws, bad decisions, and heartache.

    27. Wow! This book was AMAZING. I could not put it down. It starts off by introducing Ava , and her children. While doing what seems to be like a favor by babysitting for a friend turns into a suspenseful, mystery of who dun it. This was a fast paced mystery, where I could not quite put my finger on who the murderer in this little town was. I am super excited about it,and hope their is more Ava mysteries ahead. If not, the book had a ending that closed up loose threads. So you don't have to worry ab [...]

    28. So happy to see this is the first in a series. I was immediately drawn into the story and did not want to quit turning the pages. Clever mystery with several viable suspects. Romance, children and a dog add to its charm. Friends, co-workers, and neighbors add interest and heart. I shed many tears throughout this story. I am eagerly awaiting Ava Logan Mystery #2. The publisher provided a copy via NetGalley for my voluntary review. I will be looking for other books by this author. She grabbed my h [...]
