In order to claim her inheritance, Leslie must track down her runaway sister Robin who she hasn't seen since they were teens and they must both appear before the attorney administering the will. Leslie is stunned when she finally tracks her down only to discover Robin dead in her apartment. Reeling from the experience, Leslie escapes as quickly as she can and drives a short distance to a restaurant. As she leaves the restaurant, she runs into a woman named Mary. The two women strike up a conversation and the story takes off from there. Leslie realizes that Mary resembles Robin, possibly enough to convince the attorney she is Robin, and suddenly Leslie hatches a plan to claim her own inheritance and help Mary realize her dream of going to California to be an actress as well.
The author does a stellar job in keeping the reader off balance as to who is being truthful, who has secrets and who to trust. You really do wonder who is the better liar in the book. The story takes many twists and turns throughout the pages. The Better Liar will draw you in and keep you guessing.
