As the cracks began to appear, both welcomed Jerry into their family, hoping that by fixing him they could fix themselves. The story idea was good and while it jumped around alot, I enjoyed reading it! She never believes that she is good enough and is always comparing herself to others. Murder is the MacGuffin that drives the book, but this is not a simple murder mystery or courtroom drama. When Katie realizes this, she tries to hold on to Nick by intruding in his job.

In chapters alternating between the past and present, Lies of the Heart unravels the truth behind the mourning widow's grief. The author continually threw information at you and you have no idea if it was relevant to the story or not.
It felt real to me, though, and all the more important for a reader: it was fascinating. But I wouldn't say it was a bad book. Lies of the Heart is the intimate telling of Katie Burelli's struggle to make sense of the tragic loss of her husband, their relationship, and events past and present that shaped their life together. Although the Cohens have died, the film is always present tense. As the trial progresses and Katie searches her own recollections for answers, she begins to confront the truth about her marriage and her own responsibility for its dissolution. I appreciate the attention to detail taken in creating Katie. I wish I could give it a 4.
Great condition for a used book! Laurie eventually encourages her teenage friends to kill him. It kept my interest and I enjoyed the courtroom stuff, but I think it was supposed to be heart-tugging and my heart remained stubbornly un-tugged. By the end I could not put it down. Thought I was going to stay up all night reading this one. Katie struggles to understand her purpose in life, allowing the movements and actions of others to gage her own. I received a copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads.

You can't make someone love you. To view it, I finished the book last night and I'm really torn on it. As the trial progresses and Katie searches her own recollections for answers, she begins to confront the truth about her marriage and her own responsibility for its dissolution. It took me a while to get through this book, it doesn't immediately drag you in - but about halfway through it got a little more interesting. Unfortunately, the book ended up being about the main character's bizarre obsession with her husband, who was actually very cruel and didn't love her, and trying to figure out who she was, which I just didn't get, and perhaps didn't care to, because Jerry and Dana were probably the only two characters who I cared about.
For days I was only able to stand a few pages at a time until I got past page 150. He has outgrown her,and wants her to get alife of her own.

Nick has been murdered in a gym by his patient who is mentally ill. It really took me a while to get into this book. I really enjoyed the first part of the book. Unfortunately, the story really did not hold me the way I wanted, the ending was very confusing and I had no idea really what happened in the end, and I just was ready to move on to another read. I won this in a goodreads giveaway.
Right in the middle I had cataract surgery, giving me time to think about what I already read. Katie Burelli's basic problem is that she has always felt undervalued by her friends, her family and her husband and protects herself by watching life go by rather than participating in it. Fully optimized for all platforms - no additional software required! I really was drawn in to the story line. I felt like the marraige was a character in itself that was carefully developed over time. Her husband, Nick, a speech therapist, has been killed, shot at point-blank range by Jerry, one of his mentally handicapped patients.
