Sabrina Sullivan received a call in the middle of the night that changed her life as she knew it. Her father, Sully, had been murdered, and now she and her sister, Michelle, could be next. Sabrina always protects her sister, and instead of going after the man who killed her father, they go into RAP, a relocation assistance program, that would give them new identities.

Sabrina is one tough cookie, and she doesnít let anyone get in her way of doing what she must to rescue Michelle. Michelle is kidnapped, and so Sabrina goes back to the one place she knows where she can get the answers she needs, Perimeter. Perimeter is where her father worked when he wasnít working with the CIA.

She meets a man who seems to be her match in more ways than one, Zach, the man who now has her fatherís job and canít seem to get past the fact that Sabrina is Sullyís daughter. Zach is gruff, but he really loved Sully and will do anything to help rescue Michelle, even working with Sabrina although he is not happy about it at all.

Parallel Lies has so many lies throughout the story that you arenít sure who to believe and just what is happening to Michelle is also a mystery. Can they, Zach and Sabrina, trust each other, and if they do, just how much? What about Uncle Theo, not really their uncle, who owns Perimeter? What roll does he play in all of this? What about the man, John, who kidnapped Michelle? Will Michelle be okay? We canít forget the man who murdered Sully; is he behind the kidnapping? These are just some of the questions that will have you thinking and trying to solve the puzzle and rescue Michelle as well as a few others.

From the moment I started reading, I was hooked. I was drawn into the story, and the pages just seemed to fly by and before I knew it the story was over. I was disappointed to see the story end. I was so happy with the outcome, and these characters were so engaging that I would love to see them again. Hopefully I will get to know a few of them a little better in other stories. Donít pass up Parallel Lies; you wonít be disappointed.
