The sequel to TRUST ME, I’M LYING

Staying out of trouble isn’t possible for Julep Dupree. She has managed not to get kicked out of her private school, even though everyone knows she’s responsible for taking down a human-trafficking mob boss—and getting St. Agatha’s golden-boy Tyler killed in the process. Running cons holds her guilty conscience at bay, but unfortunately, someone wants Julep to pay for her mistakes . . . with her life.

Against her better judgment, Julep takes a shady case that requires her to infiltrate a secretive organization that her long-gone mother and the enigmatic blue fairy may be connected to. Her best friend, Sam, isn’t around to stop her, and Dani, her one true confidante, happens to be a nineteen-year-old mob enforcer whose moral compass is as questionable as Julep’s. But there’s not much time to worry about right and wrong—or to save your falling heart—when there’s a contract on your head.

Murders, heists, secrets and lies, hit men and hidden identities . . . If Julep doesn’t watch her back, it’s her funeral. No lie.

I’ve always had a thing for movies and books now involving con, heists,etc… That is what first caught my attention with this series last year. Trust Me, I’m Trouble is the sequel to Trust Me, I’m Trouble. Julep is dealing with the aftermath of everything that happened in the first book, while still attempting to pull of cons.

Julep is witty, smart, crafty, and has a multitude of skills at her disposal. Plus it seems like she has grown up a little more since the first book. Her choices so far may have been a little questionable, but she isn’t going to let them stop her from doing what she does best. A gifted manipulator, she has a way with words and getting people to say or do what she needs them to.

I really liked the mystery portion of the story. It wasn’t predictable and there were plenty of twists and surprises to keep me interested in reading. I ended up enjoying this book a little bit more than I did the first one. The writing and pace of the story was done well….I never got bored with the storyline and I liked how everything wasn’t easy to guess.

If you like stories involving schemes, con artists, and some mystery thrown into the mix, then I would recommend this series to you. And if you have read the first book you need to pick up this one when it releases on Tuesday! To find out more about Mary Elizabeth Summer and the previous books in this series, see below.
