Will Lies Prevail?

Cathy Cramer is a former lawyer and investigative blogger who writes commentary on high-profile homicides. When she finds a threatening note warning her that she’s about to experience the same kind of judgment and speculation that she dishes out in her blog, Cathy writes it off as mischief . . . until her brother’s wife is murdered and all the “facts” point to him. The killer has staged the crime to make the truth too far-fetched to believe. Truth Stained Lies by Terri Blackstock has proven to be another great book for our Sweet Inspiration Book Club. The discussion will be March 19 at 2:00 PM.
