Book Review: Shroud of Lies by Nancy Straight

Published March 21, 2016 by adventuresinbooklandblog




Mark believes he has finally shed his destructive past. Reunited with the brother he had believed to be dead for most of his life, Mark’s life detours again when he learns of a younger sister also abandoned by their parents. Desperate to find her, Mark and Davey travel thousands of miles turning over the rocks of their past. Discovering the truth veiled behind layers of lies is daunting, but the Brewer brothers vow to leave no stone unturned. As Mark begins to peel back the layers of his past to locate his sister, he is jerked back into his criminal life and risks losing Libby and everyone he loves forever.

Old friends and enemies insert themselves in Mark’s new life; he must choose between the life luring him back and the future he desperately wants. Mark attempts to keep those he loves from being caught in the cross fire of old enemies vying for position.




I first became a fan Nancy Straight when I read His Frozen Heart. I not only became a fan of Nancy, but I also became a fan Dave Brewer. Then I read Fractured Karma and became a fan Mark Brewer. I was sad to see both of their stories end. Then I was given a chance to read, Shroud of Lies by Nancy Straight!

It’s a little hard to write this review because so much happens, but there’s a chance I will give it all away it I write too much (I will try my best to leave out any spoilers!). Like all of Ms. Straight’s books, Shroud of Lies, grabbed me from the very first page. I couldn’t wait to find out who Mark and Davey’s sister was and the journey was full of surprises. I loved uncovering all mysteries with both brothers. Even though, I enjoy Mark, I missed seeing more of Davey, but this was Mark’s journey and the story focused around it.

As sad as I am to see this series go, I cannot wait to see what Nancy Straight creates next. I know it will be just as great as the rest of her stories!




Nancy was born in Sioux City Iowa, left the cold of the Midwest in 1991 and only returns to see family in the summer time. She spent ten years traveling the world as a US Marine and settled in rural SC with her husband and two children.

She has written ten novels (3 x Paranormal Romance, 4 x Mythological Romance and 3 x Suspenseful Romance). Nancy enjoys reading all types of Paranormal and Young Adult literature.
