  • Mayra

    Secrets and Lies is the second installment in the Cassie Scot new adult paranormal mystery series. Though there’s a bit of backstory in this novel, it’s preferable to read the books in order, if only to find out from the beginning who Cassie is, how she got started as a detective and, especially, how her romance with Evan evolved. Also to understand the animosity between their families.In Secrets and Lies, two girls have gone missing from a summer camp and although the local police have alre [...]

    I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.4.5 StarsSecrets and Lies is the second book in the Cassie Scot series. It's not a standalone novel, so be sure to read Cassie Scot ParaNormal Detective first. I enjoyed this novel as much as the first, though I think this one was a tad darker, with quite a bit more angst. The angst was flying at Cassie from all directions this time; I'm somewhat surprised she was still sane by the end. I found it almost impossible to put it d [...]

    ***I was gifted a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review***To start off, you need to have read Book 1 (Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective) to be up to speed on what’s happening in Cassie’s world. If you haven’t read it, I suggest you stop reading this review until you have :POk, sooooooo Cassie and Evan are still at the “will they, won’t they” stage due to neither knowing if the other is showing their true feelings due to the Life Debt Cassie owes. Cassie rea [...]

  • Sheila

    If you didn’t read Cassie Scot, ParaNormal Detective, you missed a fun paranormal mystery romance set in a fascinating town where para is the norm. But Secrets and Lies, second in the Cassie Scot series, starts with enough hints and memories to bring characters and situations into immediate and enticing focus. Evan’s still following Cassie around. Cassie’s still struggling with being the only normal in a family of powers. And Evan’s family and Cassie’s are still at odds with each other [...]

  • Jonel Boyko

    This story is naturally and fluidly written in a manner that draws you in. It follows in the same tone and style as the first novel in the series, adding a sense of continuity to the saga. That said, I’d highly suggest reading the first novel first. Her explicitly visual descriptions bring everything to light in a very vivid way. Amsden does a great job of introducing new and unique concepts as part of the story’s action rather than as a separate narrative. She keeps you guessing and on your [...]

  • Runningrabbit

    Let me start by saying that this has to be the the No. 1 worst cover, subject to its competitor book 3, in the history of paranormal cover art. I’m sorry if I’ve hurt someone’s belief in their nebulous artistic venture. If you put your work out there in the public arena, you’re going to meet with some critics.The book itself is a really well done novel. The first novel is good value at the moment, and well worth the go. The main character is someone that I think most of us can relate to. [...]

  • Calatasde

    After reading first book,I was so curious about what's going to happen about Cassie and Evan's Relationships.Lucky I have the second book but I wish I have the third book who even not published or doesn't exits. Cassie and Evan's families are like enemies. They have never gotten along or haven't for a very long time. They can't stand the fact that Cassie and Evan have been friends since childhood. This kind of stories always reminds me Romeo&Juliet. Forbidden Love.But also there's a differen [...]

  • Laura

    So far for me this series is fairly enjoyable. I think I might have liked this book more than the first except for a very distinctive theme I see developing that I am not really happy about. Cassie Scot lives in a society made up of magical and non-magical all trying to co-exist in one small town. Cassie comes from a very powerful magical family made up of her parents and her 6 brothers and sisters. Of the seven of the siblings, Cassie is the only one who has no magic. Her family's biggest rival [...]

    Disclosure: I received a review copy from the author in exchange for a honest review.Secret and Lies is the second book in Amsden’s spellbinding Cassie Scot series. Secrets and Lies take place exactly where the first book left off, with no amount of time passing. Cassie comes from one of Eagle Rock most powerful and prominent family of sorcerers, but is the only one in a family of seven kids without magic. In the last book, Cassie was disowned by her family and was left to fend for herself wit [...]

    I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review. I rated it 4.5 out of 5 Stars.Set in a fictional small town in Southern, Missouri, Secrets and Lies, the second book in the Cassie Scot series by Christine Amsden, picks up shortly after the events taking place in Cassie Scot: Paranormal Detective. Cassie, still lacking in magical abilities, and now without “protection” due to being disowned by her parents, is trying to put her lif [...]

    Originally posted on The Canon! canireadeverythingI received a copy of this book from the author for review. This did in no way affect my review. Promise!I read the first Cassie Scot book as a part of a blog tour in the past year and fell in love with this detective. Her personality and self-imposed role as the only 'normal' one in the family made me laugh from the first page. When I was offered the opportunity to read the next installment of Cassie's journey, I jumped at the chance! Here's wh [...]

    Original review here: offbeatvagabond/2013/11/secrets-and-lies-blog-tour-reviewmlSecrets and Lies is the sequel to Amsden's Cassie Scot series. This book picks up where book 1 left off.

It will be hard, but she will do what she can. So on top of trying to figure out how she will get her next paycheck, she has to figure out [...]

    My review of Book 1 can be found here: saphsbookblog/201Secrets and Lies is the next installment in the Cassie Scot series by Christine Amsden.Please note:There will most likely be Book 1 spoilers.Cassie is still trying to accept that her parents have disowned her and she owes a life debt to Evan. She can't fathom the idea of seeing either of her former-parents, which has unfortunate affects on her siblings. Cassie's obligations to Evan have her so tied up in knots that she can't see straight.

    My ****4 Star**** ReviewFirst, let me say that this is the second book in the Cassie Scot series. If you haven’t read the first book – STOP HERE!! This book picks up right after the first and will definitely spoil things for you. You can check out my review on the first book HERE.So, after the big cliffhanger at the first one, things start pretty calmly in book 2. Evan’s father, Victor, and Evan’s best friend/cousin, Scott Lee, both think that Evan should just force Cassie to marry him. [...]

    I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.In ParaNormal Detective we met Cassie Scot who unlike other members of her family she has no magic and needs her family or someone for protection. In ParaNormal Detective Cassie's parents did a disownment spell and kicked her out of the house on the same day. They didn't even give her a chance or the time to find somewhere to live. But luckily Cassie has some very good friends. One of her friends Kaitlin let her stay with h [...]

  • Mike

    This one nudged over the four-and-a-half-star threshold because of a moment near the end which made me say "Yes!" aloud and pump my fist on behalf of the protagonist.Cassie Scot is more than worthy to stand beside Kitty Norville, Joanne Walker or Mercy Thompson in the urban fantasy genre. She's smart. In fact, she's primarily smart. She doesn't have any supernatural advantage going on, and is surrounded by people who do. She isn't big and strong and kickass; she's been a sherrif's deputy and can [...]

    Okay I have to say this first. My plea and begging to ms. Amsden.

The secrets that come out are incredible and ones I never would have guessed. Her writing style is one that entrances you into the story and gets you involved. Evan is my new book boyfrie [...]

    I received this book from the author as a First Reads winnnerThis review contains spoilers and I apologize if it is not well written. I'm not so good at focusing thoughts in my head onto paper. This book was engrossing and easy to read.

    In the first book of this series, we found magic, mystery, danger, and vampires. Well, take out the vamps, add a werewolf, up the danger, and you've got a good idea of this sequel.This book starts off right where the first one ended. With Cassie's family relationships strained, and her romantic life complicated beyond sanity, her world feels even more out of control than ever. Taking a case with Evan sets events in motion that cause even more danger, mysteries, and swirling confusion to surround [...]

  • Gena

    What the heck did I just read? How did this book get so highly rated? The writing was repetitive, how many times did i read "my father, make that former father"? Too many times, the reader gets it already! And suddenly Cassie starts talking directly to the reader about some magic info. There is too much detail about stuff I didn't care about (everything ordered for lunch at MickeyDs, like I care if they ate salad, and fruit, and yogurt). And this book has a big pet peeve of mine: no one talks th [...]

    I really enjoyed the first book in Christine Amsden's Cassie Scot series and was excited to read the next instalment Secrets and Lies. It's difficult to review book 2 without mentioning the events in the first book so if you haven't read Paranormal Detective then be warned!The story picks up right after the events of Paranormal Detective with Evan sorta owning Cassie and her trying to deny any feelings for him. Cassie's avoiding her family and is trying to find her place in the world; she's the [...]
