Generous Lies by Robin Patchen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is book three in Robin Patchen’s “Hidden Truth” series. They are all good! One of the things I love about this one is that it tackles the very timely – and scary for parents – issue of teenage drug addiction. Opioid addiction is on the news every night. People are dealing with this all across the country and all across the economic spectrum. Patchen does a very credible job of exploring how it can affect a family.
Aside from that important issue, the story is engaging from the start, picking up from the previous book. Any of these can be stand alone stories, but I recommend reading them in order. Garrison and Sam are introduced in the previous books, but in “Generous Lies” it’s their story. We liked them before, but now we really get to know them. And they don’t disappoint! No spoilers here but I highly recommend reading the whole series.
