I've never lived in a small town where everyone knows everyone else but based on this novel, what happens in a small town stays in a small town, whispered from ear to ear over every back fence. Makes me a bit glad that I live in the 'burbs where exactly the same thing happens except that it's at little league games and "back to school" nights. OTOH, I now wonder what it would be like to grow up in a town like Frog Point, Ohio; I'm probably too old now to ever find out.

This is a well-written book by Jennifer Crusie (not her first by a landslide). The plot is tightly woven, and the characters distinct (except for the dead ones - they seem all alike). I liked C.L.'s aunt Anne and uncle Henry and their farm; I wished Maddie and Em had started going out there earlier and more often. I liked Maddie's sub-compacted Honda Civic and C.L.'s red Mustang convertible; we never did find out what the rental car was. "Lies" was a pervasive theme throughout the novel and tied many things up together.

The author dexterously left the explanation of exactly what happened to the very end but, as far as I can tell, there were no extra parts left over.

I read this novel because it was referenced in Donald Maass's Writing the Breakout Novel. Now I wish I remembered why he mentioned the book.

This book frustrated me from start to finish. I didn’t love the premise, and was iffy about this from the first. But every single one of Jennifer Crusie’s books have drawn me in and I’ve loved them. Not this one. Bad decision on bad decision, serious gaps WAY too much gossip. This is much like Crazy for You where the chick went along with everything ‘cos it’s easier and then blames herself for everything that happens next. This one, far out. The chick doesn’t think clearly for more than two minutes the whole way through. I really had many moments when the dog looked at me to see why I was yelling. Ms Crusie is way better than this. I love her work, but go with the earlier books first.

*Tell Me Lies* is one of the first full novel-length Crusies, the canonical Crusie texts, so to speak. It still carries the taste of small-town Ohio that slowly vanishes from the later and imho best Crusie books like *Fast Women*, *Faking It* and *Bet Me*, and it doesn't quite manage the totally brilliant wisecracking in those 3 (like the exchange in *Bet Me* where Cal kisses Min in a (very) public bar for a bet, and the bystanders remark, among other cracks, that "The Russian judge thought you needed work. There was hooting.") It does have the frenetic tumble of Horrible but Horribly Comic Events that so charmingly enliven *Welcome to Temptation* along with the other three. On the other hand, the whodunnit plot shares the rather-grim-reality under stratum in *Crazy for You.* As there, the comic elements don't prevail overall, as they do, by and large, in Crusie's Big Three.
In this book, as in *Crazy for You* the "reality" that underlies the fiction, after stereotypic suburban smalltown housewife Maddie Faraday finds a pair of crotchless black underpants under the front seat of her husband's car, in a town so small and "inbred" as my brother used to call small Queensland towns, that a bad reputation lasts unto the third and fourth generation, never quite gets lost under the froth.

Not that the froth can't be rib-crackingly funny. It's just, as in the scene at the start, where Maddie has found the pants in flagrante, lied about them to her 8 year-old daughter, used them for a pan-cleaner, tried to find some chocolate for consolation, tried to toast a frozen Oreo, and ended up at the front door to meet her high school deflowerer for the first time in twenty years, with suds-soaked Bermudas and waving a large carving knife, that the funny has a very strong flavour of a hit on the funnybone, as painful, if hysterical, as Maddie's own.

There's no such thing as a bad Jennifer Crusie novel. All of the Crusie trademarks are here in spades - witty dialouge, great leading characters, love scenes that manage to be both steamy and hilarious at the same time. No one combines humor and romance better than Crusie. No doubt about it, you will enjoy this book. However, I must admit that as enjoyable as "Tell Me Lies" is, I think it is the weakest of Crusie's books. The female lead's life is so out of control - Maddie thinks her husband is cheating on her and preparing to kidnap their child - that I found it a more than a little difficult to believe that she was able to start a romance with her long-lost high school fling. I don't demand absolute plausibility in my romance novels, but this was just too much. The secret of this book is engaging in a little willing suspension of disbelief and just appreciate the humor in watching Maddie cope with her increasing bizarre and frequently funny life.

I love this book. I love Maddie and how her character is written. Funny, witty, great read. I put it in the top tier of the Crusie books. I have read it two or three times (once every 5 years or so, when I forget the plot).

I love all of Jennifer Crusie's books. I have read them all multiple times. Her writing is hilarious and fast paced to keep you reading. I usually skip the sexual content but her books are witty and laugh out loud fun to read.

This was a great book from a much loved author!
While this wasn't my favorite book so far I still enjoyed the book and the characters. I didn't agree with some of the life choices made by the heroine but it made for some very interesting drama. For the heroine (Maddie) or star of this slightly dark comedy life has been very blase and too perfect which changes with the arrival of her old high school love interest. The story begins with Maddie's discovery of her husbands cheating (again) and continues in some very interesting twists and turns.

If your a fan of Crusie's previous dark comedy/romance books then you'll love this book!
This was not your ordinary romance. The author brought us into a world of deceit, small town pettiness and a super-hot love interest. She kept the pace going, kept me guessing and did it all with a wonderful sense of humor. I enjoyed that the ending was not super-sappy but still satisfying.
