She never thought it would go this far.

It started out so innocently, but now has taken on a life of its own. Problem is, Lindsay Palmer doesn't know how to stop. Even worse, she doesn't want to stop. Her daily deceit has become both her greatest pleasure and deepest shame. Thousands of people love her, but would they if they knew the truth.

A simple favor for his baby sister brings Lindsay into Luke Jamieson's life. There's something about this girl that keeps her on his mind hours and days after each time they meet. Now here he is, falling in love with a liar. All he wants is for her to let him in, and maybe together he can lead her out of the cage of her own construction.

Will the truth set her free, or have her lies already destroyed everything?

My Thoughts:

After devouring the first book in the Carolina Days series, I couldn't wait to read the next one. I had several review books that I needed to read when I decided I wanted to get a taste of this story. What happened instead was me spending an entire night finishing the book because I couldn't get enough of it.

Lindsay isn't the usual heroine. In fact, she's facing some very serious issues--ones that cause her to avoid people. When she and Luke first start talking, it's very innocent and friendly. As time goes by, though, Luke is drawn to Lindsay in a way he didn't realize or expect. She finds it difficult to open up to him, but he's not about to give up on her. He grows to care for her, and she's starting to let him in, which is something she hasn't been willing to do for a long time. Pretty soon, the truth starts to come out, and it's up to Lindsay to be strong like Luke knows she can be.

Yesterday's Half Truths was such a lovely, wonderful, beautiful, and gorgeous book. It's not a conventional romance by any means, but oh boy, was it an amazing romance. Carey Heywood blew me away with it--the emotions brought the feels so much I was nearly sobbing by the time I finished. And half of the crying wasn't even from sadness, it was from how happy the story made me. For crying out loud, I'm tearing up as I type this. Please, please, please keep these stories coming!
