Tell Me Something True is the third book in the Truth In Lies series and cannot be read as a standalone. Please read This Much Is True and The Truth About Air & Water, books 1 and 2 in the Truth In Lies Series, first.

The star ballerina finally marries the major league baseball player and the truth about Linc and Tally—his being her air and she being his water—becomes clear after the couple finally realize that their love is all that matters.

But that was the first day. The day they said, “I do." The day the demons seemed to leave them alone, at least, for a little while.
Nevertheless, there were other days, when all the lies of the past and their ways of coping with their fears caught up to them.

And, this is that story.

"If you believe in fairy tales and happy endings,
and you want to stop right here and bask in the wonderment and joy of it all, please do.
If you want to know the rest of our story,
you need to take a deep breath
and tell yourself that everything will be okay,
that everything works out,
and life happens,
and in the end
love is all you need.
Someone has to tell you these things,
just like someone had to tell me.
All I know is that the truth never dies,
and it does set you free, whether you want it to or not.
And in the end? All you have is love.
Love is all there is."
~ Talia Landon Presley

Author’s note: Tell Me Something True CANNOT be read as a standalone novel. There are two books in the Truth In Lies Series before this one. Those books are: This Much Is True, Book 1 - Truth In Lies and The Truth About Air & Water, Book 2 - Truth In Lies.

Lord! I didn’t think things could possibly get worse for Linc and Tally, but Katherine Owen proved me wrong. In the worst way.

The third book in the Truth in Lies series was a test of emotional grit for me. Linc and Tally have never had anything easy in their relationship. Their demons, the emotional barriers they put up and the other people they let in between them often derail their faith in each other and their relationship more times than they don’t. I thought with their wedding at the ending of book 2, maybe they’d finally get their act together. WRONG! They’re forced to deal with the ultimate test of their relationship and, at times, fail miserably. As their relationship is ripped through the ringer, we’re right there with them. I spent a lot of time wanting to slap or hug Tally and/or Linc. And I truly wondered if they were ever going to figure out how to balance their important careers with their equally important family life. But in the ugliest fashion ever, this couple proved why I’ve re-read the first two books twice in the last few months. Despite how emotionally stunted both of them are, they are a couple who are worth it. Worth the love they have for each other, if they could only both learn to love themselves and accept each others faults. We finally get that with this book and when I got to “The End” I truly believed this couple would have their happily ever after.

TELL ME SOMETHING TRUE is a tough, tough read. Katherine Owen rips readers through an emotional roller coaster of lies, devastation, and the fortitude to believe love will conquer all.

  1. Thank you so much for taking the time to read the series (more than once!) and write a review of my latest novel in Truth In Lies with “Tell Me Something True” and the continuation of Linc and Tally’s love story. Thank you also for “seeing it through”. I know it’s a tough read, (believe me it was a challenge to write as well!) but you stayed with it and I truly appreciate that. #gratitude #lovemyreaders! ♥ ♥ ♥

    Best to you,
