    When I saw the tag line of ?Stranger Things meets Men in Black? I was 100000% here for it. Sadly, it was fairly disappointing for me. I liked Penny well enough. Her struggle to fit back into a small town life felt realistic and I really enjoyed her tenacity. Dex was sort of ado...

    Penny is back in her hometown of Bone Lake, Michigan for the summer prepared to write her college essay on the decline of the town after the military pulled their major contract causing the local factory to close several years ago. Her dad doesn't show to pick her up at the airport...

    I must admit that this just hasn?t been the best reading year for me so far. Many of my recent reads have turned out to be disappointing to put it kindly. Sadly, The Truth Lies Here was not the exception. The story follows Penny, she needs a big story to include in her college app...

    Did anyone else grow up listening to Art Bell and his conspiracy theories about monsters and aliens late at night on the radio? If you did, this book might interest you. Penny?s dad, a conspiracy and cryptid journalist, stumbles onto a dangerous secret and disappears. Penny is co...

    I feel like I just watched a mediocre teen sci-fi/mystery movie that I'm gonna forget in a week. The premise sounds cool, but the book itself is nothing special. The plot wasn't that slow, but we still don't get much info until the end. It's mostly just Penny telling everyone how he...

    I excited by the premise of The Truth Lies Here: a girl who wants to get into journalism school and has a father who is a conspiracy theorist. Penny Hardjoy (lol - does she sound like a Bond Girl or what?) leaves Chicago to spend the summer with her father in the small midwestern town ...

    I really liked this creepy book. This book was the perfect Halloween book. The author made it subtle which many thriller books have trouble with. Also that there was more development in characters through the book. Horror books usually focus on the plot than the characters which made m...

    9/14/18 Review: Oh, look, a highly anticipated read that didn't fail me. Call me impressed. As you can see, my pre-read review was allllllllllllllllll the fangirl feels since the premise was literally alllllllllllll of my buzzwords? I was like, all this book needs is some Bigfoot ...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars A throughly compelling coming-of-age story laced with mystery and a touch of Sci-fi. Confession: I read this one by accident, so it will be quite a while before I post my full review. Until then, know that I only have good things to say about this book. Full ...

    I really dug this book. A little bit strange, but a lot of fun, I kept reading up until the wee hours to see how everything was going to be resolved. The sci-fi angle was written in a way that made the book feel grounded. I loved the main character and enjoyed the mystery as well as he...

    ARC provided by the publisher vis Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. 4/5 stars for The Truth Lies Here! I had so much fun reading this book! I'm not going to lie, I requested this book 100% based on the fact that it's set in Michigan. That being said, I could not remember ...

    *Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!* ?To believe blindly is to get burned, and I was smarter than that now. I knew better.? Along with openly being a love letter to her childhood growing up in Michigan, this book was also a ...

    This was like reading a classic 80's Sci-Fi movie, with a tinge of Stranger Things thrown in, I loved it. The small town vibes, mixed in with an intriguing mystery, with just the right amount of terror thrown in. For once, a cover buy has paid off, because the content lived up to the a...

    Penny is supposed to spend summer vacations with her distant supernatural journalist father. When she reaches the small town she grew up before the nasty divorce, he is nowhere. She's sure she's been ignored or forgotten because of some unbelievable story but things in town seem too ou...

    Loved this book! It has such a Stranger Things vibe. So fun! ...

    Stranger Things, The X-Files and Men in Black make a compelling mix in The Truth Lies Here. ...

    Penny Hardjoy is spending the summer with her father in Bone Lake, Michigan, while her mother is on sabbatical in Spain. Until she was ten years old, her father was her hero. She went with him on hunts for Bigfoot and loved all of his stories about supernatural creatures. But seeing hi...

    Penny's parents are divorced after she discovered something that destroyed her friendship with her best friend. She gets to spend her vacation time with her father in the small town she grew up, but when she arrives she finds out her father isn't home. At first she believes he is hunti...

    It was creepy with a hint of romance and I LOVED IT! Best bit was the MASSIVE plot twist which I don?t think anyone could see coming! Honestly amazing. Definitely has a spot as one of my favourite reads ever! ...

    What a strange, fun read. As a cryptid, I want to believe-er, when this book popped up on my shelves, I had to read it. And while the search for the Visitors is a big part of the book, the other story lines of family, and suspicions and truth and lies makes for a very compelling read. ...

    I just read the first two chapters via the Epic Reads Sneak Peak and HOLY CRAP. Does pre-ordering a book two days before release count as not breaking a book ban? Asking for a friend. ...

    First of all. I felt like parts of this were a love letter to Michigan. Which I'm here for; I'm most prone to homesickness during this time of year (Fall/Winter), and simple things like lakes, Superman ice cream, M66, and such warm my soul. Second and rest of all, this isn't my nor...

    (Received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.) I saw this book described as Stranger Things meets Men In Black, which guaranteed that I would read it! I hope to like every book I read, but I...

    Y'all. this book was SO good. I didn't get this ARC from a publisher or anything, I actually got it for free from a little indie bookstore in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina while on Vacation because when you buy from them, you can choose to pick out an ARC. This one seemed the most promisi...

    Plot: Penelope, who prefers the nickname Penny, lost faith in her father, Ike Hardjoy, at ten years old. When she used to believe all the fairy tales he told her, about werewolves, Nessie, fairies, all wandering around the woods waiting to be discovered. When hunting for Bigfoot, and ...

    When Penny thinks of her hometown, she thinks of the local ice cream shop, her childhood crushes and her father, a reporter who specializes in the paranormal. When she was little, she believed in her father and his outlandish claims, but since her parents' divorce and her subsequent mo...

    THE TRUTH LIES HERE by Lindsey Klingele is a young adult, sci-fi novel set in Bone Lake, Michigan. This little town is the last place Penny wants to spend her entire summer, but her mom?s on a sabbatical in Spain and Penny needs quotes from Bone Lake residents for her college admissi...

    This was so disappointing. I was really in the mood for a mystery in genericville, America. The town of Bone Lake should have felt like its own character, and yet the descriptions of it were bareboned. How hard is it to put in descriptions? Tell me what it looks like from the shades an...

    The weather is cooling off (well...sort of), the leaves are beginning to change color, and Pumpkin Spice is reaching epidemic proportions. It is around this time of year when I stop wanting to read fun, beachy stories and begin to reach for those that are more dark and suspenseful. Wit...

    This was so disappointing. I was really in the mood for a mystery in genericville, America. The town of Bone Lake should have felt like its own character, and yet the descriptions of it were bareboned. How hard is it to put in descriptions? Tell me what it looks like from the shades an...

    I really liked this book, which is a little surprising because it?s got an X-Files vibe, and I was never much into X-Files. But, in all fairness, it?s set solidly in Michigan (and I love Michigan), and it?s about a budding journalist (my husband?s a journalist and I spent last ...

    I feel like I just watched a mediocre teen sci-fi/mystery movie that I'm gonna forget in a week. The premise sounds cool, but the book itself is nothing special. The plot wasn't that slow, but we still don't get much info until the end. It's mostly just Penny telling everyone how he...

    I excited by the premise of The Truth Lies Here: a girl who wants to get into journalism school and has a father who is a conspiracy theorist. Penny Hardjoy (lol - does she sound like a Bond Girl or what?) leaves Chicago to spend the summer with her father in the small midwestern town ...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars A throughly compelling coming-of-age story laced with mystery and a touch of Sci-fi. Confession: I read this one by accident, so it will be quite a while before I post my full review. Until then, know that I only have good things to say about this book. Full ...

    I really dug this book. A little bit strange, but a lot of fun, I kept reading up until the wee hours to see how everything was going to be resolved. The sci-fi angle was written in a way that made the book feel grounded. I loved the main character and enjoyed the mystery as well as he...

    ARC provided by the publisher vis Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. 4/5 stars for The Truth Lies Here! I had so much fun reading this book! I'm not going to lie, I requested this book 100% based on the fact that it's set in Michigan. That being said, I could not remember ...

    *Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!* ?To believe blindly is to get burned, and I was smarter than that now. I knew better.? Along with openly being a love letter to her childhood growing up in Michigan, this book was also a ...

    This was like reading a classic 80's Sci-Fi movie, with a tinge of Stranger Things thrown in, I loved it. The small town vibes, mixed in with an intriguing mystery, with just the right amount of terror thrown in. For once, a cover buy has paid off, because the content lived up to the a...

    Penny is supposed to spend summer vacations with her distant supernatural journalist father. When she reaches the small town she grew up before the nasty divorce, he is nowhere. She's sure she's been ignored or forgotten because of some unbelievable story but things in town seem too ou...

    Loved this book! It has such a Stranger Things vibe. So fun! ...

    Stranger Things, The X-Files and Men in Black make a compelling mix in The Truth Lies Here. ...

    Penny Hardjoy is spending the summer with her father in Bone Lake, Michigan, while her mother is on sabbatical in Spain. Until she was ten years old, her father was her hero. She went with him on hunts for Bigfoot and loved all of his stories about supernatural creatures. But seeing hi...

    Penny's parents are divorced after she discovered something that destroyed her friendship with her best friend. She gets to spend her vacation time with her father in the small town she grew up, but when she arrives she finds out her father isn't home. At first she believes he is hunti...

    It was creepy with a hint of romance and I LOVED IT! Best bit was the MASSIVE plot twist which I don?t think anyone could see coming! Honestly amazing. Definitely has a spot as one of my favourite reads ever! ...

    What a strange, fun read. As a cryptid, I want to believe-er, when this book popped up on my shelves, I had to read it. And while the search for the Visitors is a big part of the book, the other story lines of family, and suspicions and truth and lies makes for a very compelling read. ...

    I just read the first two chapters via the Epic Reads Sneak Peak and HOLY CRAP. Does pre-ordering a book two days before release count as not breaking a book ban? Asking for a friend. ...

    First of all. I felt like parts of this were a love letter to Michigan. Which I'm here for; I'm most prone to homesickness during this time of year (Fall/Winter), and simple things like lakes, Superman ice cream, M66, and such warm my soul. Second and rest of all, this isn't my nor...

    (Received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.) I saw this book described as Stranger Things meets Men In Black, which guaranteed that I would read it! I hope to like every book I read, but I...

    Y'all. this book was SO good. I didn't get this ARC from a publisher or anything, I actually got it for free from a little indie bookstore in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina while on Vacation because when you buy from them, you can choose to pick out an ARC. This one seemed the most promisi...

    Plot: Penelope, who prefers the nickname Penny, lost faith in her father, Ike Hardjoy, at ten years old. When she used to believe all the fairy tales he told her, about werewolves, Nessie, fairies, all wandering around the woods waiting to be discovered. When hunting for Bigfoot, and ...

    I really liked this creepy book. This book was the perfect Halloween book. The author made it subtle which many thriller books have trouble with. Also that there was more development in characters through the book. Horror books usually focus on the plot than the characters which made m...

    9/14/18 Review: Oh, look, a highly anticipated read that didn't fail me. Call me impressed. As you can see, my pre-read review was allllllllllllllllll the fangirl feels since the premise was literally alllllllllllll of my buzzwords? I was like, all this book needs is some Bigfoot ...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars A throughly compelling coming-of-age story laced with mystery and a touch of Sci-fi. Confession: I read this one by accident, so it will be quite a while before I post my full review. Until then, know that I only have good things to say about this book. Full ...

    I really dug this book. A little bit strange, but a lot of fun, I kept reading up until the wee hours to see how everything was going to be resolved. The sci-fi angle was written in a way that made the book feel grounded. I loved the main character and enjoyed the mystery as well as he...

    ARC provided by the publisher vis Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. 4/5 stars for The Truth Lies Here! I had so much fun reading this book! I'm not going to lie, I requested this book 100% based on the fact that it's set in Michigan. That being said, I could not remember ...

    *Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!* ?To believe blindly is to get burned, and I was smarter than that now. I knew better.? Along with openly being a love letter to her childhood growing up in Michigan, this book was also a ...

    This was like reading a classic 80's Sci-Fi movie, with a tinge of Stranger Things thrown in, I loved it. The small town vibes, mixed in with an intriguing mystery, with just the right amount of terror thrown in. For once, a cover buy has paid off, because the content lived up to the a...

    Penny is supposed to spend summer vacations with her distant supernatural journalist father. When she reaches the small town she grew up before the nasty divorce, he is nowhere. She's sure she's been ignored or forgotten because of some unbelievable story but things in town seem too ou...

    Stranger Things, The X-Files and Men in Black make a compelling mix in The Truth Lies Here. ...

    Penny Hardjoy is spending the summer with her father in Bone Lake, Michigan, while her mother is on sabbatical in Spain. Until she was ten years old, her father was her hero. She went with him on hunts for Bigfoot and loved all of his stories about supernatural creatures. But seeing hi...

    Penny's parents are divorced after she discovered something that destroyed her friendship with her best friend. She gets to spend her vacation time with her father in the small town she grew up, but when she arrives she finds out her father isn't home. At first she believes he is hunti...

    It was creepy with a hint of romance and I LOVED IT! Best bit was the MASSIVE plot twist which I don?t think anyone could see coming! Honestly amazing. Definitely has a spot as one of my favourite reads ever! ...

    What a strange, fun read. As a cryptid, I want to believe-er, when this book popped up on my shelves, I had to read it. And while the search for the Visitors is a big part of the book, the other story lines of family, and suspicions and truth and lies makes for a very compelling read. ...

    I just read the first two chapters via the Epic Reads Sneak Peak and HOLY CRAP. Does pre-ordering a book two days before release count as not breaking a book ban? Asking for a friend. ...

    First of all. I felt like parts of this were a love letter to Michigan. Which I'm here for; I'm most prone to homesickness during this time of year (Fall/Winter), and simple things like lakes, Superman ice cream, M66, and such warm my soul. Second and rest of all, this isn't my nor...

    When I saw the tag line of ?Stranger Things meets Men in Black? I was 100000% here for it. Sadly, it was fairly disappointing for me. I liked Penny well enough. Her struggle to fit back into a small town life felt realistic and I really enjoyed her tenacity. Dex was sort of ado...
