Luna and the Lie by Mariana Zapata


The problem with secrets is that they’re too easy to keep collecting.

Luna Allen has done some things she would rather no one ever know about. She also knows that, if she could go back in time, she wouldn’t change a single thing.

With three sisters she loves, a job she (mostly) adores, and a family built up of friends she’s made over the years, Luna figures everything has worked out the way it was supposed to.

But when one of those secrets involves the man who signs her paycheck, she can’t find it in her to regret it. Despite the fact that he’s not the friendliest man in the world. Or the most patient.

Sometimes there are things you’re better off keeping to yourself.

ellie’s $0.02:

To say I’m giddy is a drastic understatement.

And I guarantee this review will not give due credit the book nor the author deserves.

The author spins a slow simmering love story with an epic new fave of a hero of mine. I felt every ounce of dislike I was supposed to feel for him, but couldn’t hate him like I was supposed to. I could talk about the characters all day and all week long, even though it is near the end of the week. But this one is all about the author. So many feels.

Mariana’s words are impacting, her characters are strong, her plot is a force not to be reckoned with. And Luna and the Lie is no exception to Mariana’s history of talented storytelling.

This author is for the reader that wants a build-up. That wants the detail. That wants to know the characters. This is not your afternoon-tea-time-romp-in-the-park read. Give it time that it deserves and enjoy the depths of Mariana Zapata. It’s a crockpot read, not an Instapot read. Sit back, bring to a slow boil and enjoy.
