Garden of Lies by Amanda Quick, published 2015

I absolutely loved this book. I might be a bit biased considering it’s historical fiction, romance AND a mystery, but either way I fully recommend it. I was so in the mood for a mystery too, and this one was really great. The twist ending was unpredictable and exciting. You never really knew what was going to happen next. 
While this isn’t the most exciting mystery I’ve read, it was definitely up there in terms of quality. It was really well written, and I thought it had the perfect amount of characters. Not too many characters that you don’t remember who everyone is, but not so few characters that the story isn’t interesting. And credit to the author, because she introduced the new characters at just the right time to make them memorable. 
Some of the scenes I found tedious to get through, but I know that they were there to show traits and symbolize a few things, along with adding clues to the plot. I enjoyed how the author gave the reader all the clues that the main characters were picking up on so the reader had a chance to solve the mystery alongside the characters. All in all, I recommend this book, have already reread it, and fully plan to read other books by this author.
