The sequel to TRUST ME, I’M LYING
Staying out of trouble isn’t possible for Julep Dupree. She has managed not to get kicked out of her private school, even though everyone knows she’s responsible for taking down a human-trafficking mob boss—and getting St. Agatha’s golden-boy Tyler killed in the process. Running cons holds her guilty conscience at bay, but unfortunately, someone wants Julep to pay for her mistakes . . . with her life.
Against her better judgment, Julep takes a shady case that requires her to infiltrate a secretive organization that her long-gone mother and the enigmatic blue fairy may be connected to. Her best friend, Sam, isn’t around to stop her, and Dani, her one true confidante, happens to be a nineteen-year-old mob enforcer whose moral compass is as questionable as Julep’s. But there’s not much time to worry about right and wrong—or to save your falling heart—when there’s a contract on your head.
Murders, heists, secrets and lies, hit men and hidden identities . . . If Julep doesn’t watch her back, it’s her funeral. No lie.
Behind the Scenes Excerpt from Trust Me, I’m Trouble
For this excerpt, I wanted to pick a scene that gave a good flavor of both the plot and Julep's character without giving too much of the story away. In the end, I chose this scene, because it was a fun one to write, and because it's one of the few scenes for which I used something I already knew versus something I had to research.
If you've read Trust Me, I’m Lying, then you probably already know that I like to set as many scenes as possible in unusual places. This scene is no exception. You’ll see once you start reading it.
