Alyssa Hillman thinks she may have killed her husband Willy. And she’s not sure how she feels about that. On one hand she loves him and is just too nice a person to be a killer, even if in self-defense. On the other, she also hates him a little because he’s an abusive brute from whose savage rape attempt she’s barely escaped with her life. So Alyssa comes to Harry and Dee Shalan, private eye team extraordinaire, for help. At first they’re trying just to find out if Willy is alive, but it isn’t long before he proves himself not only alive but also quite unhappy and more than a little insane. In the course of the investigation, Harry and Dee meet Willy’s younger brother Happy, Willy’s opposite in nearly every way. Happy’s wife Marissa is not only Alyssa’s best friend but could pass for her twin sister. Happy is forced to choose between two unthinkable options. Does he help his sociopathic sibling? If not, he risks bringing public shame to his beloved wife. In this modern re-imagining of the parable of the prodigal son, brothers battle over family honor, respect, and even the women who love them. Kisses and Lies is the follow up to Joe Stephens’ critically acclaimed debut novel, Harsh Prey.

From the Author:

This is the second in series, The Shalan Adventures. The first was Harsh Prey. You don't need to have read the first book to understand this one, but, as with all series, reading them in order helps you understand the greater arc of the central characters. This book went in a very slightly darker direction than the first, with Harry struggling with feeling responsible for the injuries and deaths of people about whom he cares. Stay tuned, because book 3, In the Shadow gets grittier still. I hope you like it and, if you do, you'll consider writing a review, either on Amazon or Goodreads. Or both. :)

About the Author:

Joe Stephens is a nationally recognized English teacher, but his secret identity is intrepid author of the Shalan Adventures, a series of books about the husband and wife detective team of Harry and Dee Shalan.

When he's not teaching America's youth or spinning yarns of his favorite romantic private eye duo, Joe is also a contributing writer on ClutchMOV, an online and print lifestyle magazine for his hometown of Parkersburg, WV and the entire surrounding Mid-Ohio Valley.
