Heather Bentley’s ‘Beautiful Lies’ reads quick and fast, one of those ‘suspenseful romance’ movies that probably would be good for a lifetime movie starring Tiffany Amber Thiesen. That’s not an insult, by the way. I got into the story way more than I care to admit, and finished it quickly because I just wanted to know what would happen to Christina and CJ, the star-crossed lovers of this novel. I don’t want to say that this is mindless fun, but it kind of is. This novel will not make you think about love and life – it’s really about rich people’s problems – but I don’t think it is pretending to be anything else but that.
