For fans of Megan Miranda and Sally Hepworth, BETWEEN LIES AND REVENGE is a gripping debut of domestic suspense, where a daring jewel heist becomes a lifeline for two women entangled in a web of deceit, pushing them to the brink of trust and betrayal in their quest for redemption and survival.

Years after the death of her brother and the theft of her heirloom jewelry, ex-con Elle is on the run ... until she spots a stranger wearing a signature piece. Determined to take back what is hers, Elle stalks and befriends the woman, using her gemology skills as a ruse. Elle offers to appraise and clean the jewelry, replicating and replacing the pieces instead.

Olivia is drowning. She maxes out credit cards behind her financially-strict husband's back in order to pay for fertility treatments, keep her blackmailing father at bay, and maintain appearances with her wealthy friends and their cultist MLM social circles. When Olivia meets Elle, she finally feels understood ... and inspired.

With Elle’s expertise and Olivia’s connections, the two start a side-hustle by way of home jewelry appraisal parties. When this isn't lucrative enough, they develop the perfect con: switching rich housewives’ gems with fakes. But their hidden truths get in the way of their success, and each other. Before their secrets bury them, they must confess their lies to one another and trust their final con will exact the revenge that’ll secure their freedom, and their lives.

This was such a suspenseful novel, it had everything that I was looking for from the description and from the cover. The cover had that mystery element and worked with the story being told. I enjoyed the way the characters were written and it left me wanting to read more from Hannah D Sharpe.

This is the first book in a long, long time that pulled me in immediately. The writing and planning of the plot was extremely well done, and although I kind of knew where the story was heading, there were literally small (or large) revelations up until the very end. I think Sharpe did a wonderful job fleshing out her characters- I felt sympathy for Elle, and wanted her to get what was rightfully hers- even though she was morally questionable. It says a lit about an author when you want the (sort of) bad guy to win. Also, the MLM theme was on POINT. There was a time in my early 20s that I had no true friends, only friends wanting me to buy whatever new miracle cure or candle or leggings they were selling that month. I don't want to give anything away, but I will sawnthat I found the ending deeply, deeply satisfying. Definitely will be recommending this book, and I look forward to what the author produces next!

Two women from completely different worlds become thrown together due to circumstances neither foresaw. Elle lost her brother who was her only true friend in the world, the only one she felt close to and had a strong bond with even when they were separated throughout their childhood. She makes her living as con artist and is currently on the run. While out one day Elle spots a woman who has the most beautiful necklace on, not only is it beautiful, it is hers and she wants it back. Olivia looks like she has it all but unbeknown to many she is extremely unhappy, all she wants is a baby but numerous attempts of fertility treatment have so far proved unsuccessful, all done without her husbands knowledge. Her credit cards are all past their limits and her husband does not believe in financial credit. Elle befriends Olivia and offers to appraise the jewelry, soon this will lead to a relationship between the two that neither of them could have foreseen.

I thoroughly enjoyed going on this journey with these women. the premise is intriguing and before I knew it I was already half way through the book. The pacing is excellent along with the portrayal of each character. The book is told in dual POV's and this really works enhancing the story. Themes of friendship and revenge are strong throughout the book and I am sure if you give this one a try you too will be as engrossed as I was. Five stars.

Thank you to Netgalley, the author and publisher for an advanced copy, all opinions expressed are my own.

If I could give the book 10 stars I would!! The first half of this book had me hooked but that last half was even better!! Lies and revenge was a suspense filled book that I couldn’t put down!! Two strangers who meet and become friends go on a journey scheming, and seeking revenge together.
