I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
As an award-winning investigative journalist, Jake Kavinsky is used to cracking mysteries and finding the truth. So when a mysterious envelope with a criminal investigation report (and let’s be honest, the picture of a stunning woman) ends up in his hands, he is definitely intrigued.
Someone seems to think Jake should be looking into that old case. But why? Why him? And why can’t he shake the weird feeling he gets every time he looks at her picture or reads the case? Something doesn’t seem right and Jake is determined to get to the bottom of it.
Not knowing he is about to embark on a journey of investigation, self-discovery and love, Jake will soon learn that the truth is not always so obvious…
Before I was a romance reader, I only read crime books. I spent an entire summer devouring John Grisham’s backlist so when The Other Truth dropped into my lap I was so excited. It seemed like the perfect combination and I wasn’t wrong. As a book and movie buff, I love the storylines of “who did it” and this book was a great addition to that genre.
Jake Kavinsky is an investigative journalist for the Post who gets an anonymous case file about a murdered young man. Sharon Trenton is a woman who is in prison for a murder she claims she didn’t commit. This is a very different set up for a romance. Most romances are written in the female point of view and this is written from Jake’s point of view; this gives the story a fresh twist.
Though the storyline sometimes were a little obvious, the overall plot, the characters and the writing was so well thought out. But what the really surprising factor was your romance. The subtle descriptions of their interactions and the evolution of their relationship is so well written that it kinda creeps up on you, and you hadn’t noticed it at all. The fact that it is such an unusual relationship just makes it work so much better for the overall story.
This was certainly a gem and a solid 4-star book for me. The Other Truth was the first book I have read by H.K Abrahams but it certainly won’t be the last.
