“Keira walked out, and breath instantly expelled from my lungs. Tears flooded my eyes. It was an involuntary response. There was my sister. Alive. Healthy. No blood.”

Today I’m sharing an excerpt from another book I never got around to reviewing. Diana Rodriguez Wallach’s Proof of Lies was an enjoyable thriller/mystery about a girl trying to find her missing sister and the truth she uncovers along the way about her parents. I think if I was more a fan of the genre, I would have liked this one more. Still, I was impressed with the intricate plot and may continue the series at a later date. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

From the Goodreads Synopsis:

      “Some secrets are best kept hidden…
      Anastasia Phoenix has always been the odd girl out, whether moving from city to international city with her scientist parents or being the black belt who speaks four languages.
And most definitely as the orphan whose sister is missing, presumed dead.
She’s the only one who believes Keira is still alive, and when new evidence surfaces, Anastasia sets out to follow the trail—and lands in the middle of a massive conspiracy. Now she isn’t sure who she can trust. At her side is Marcus, the bad boy with a sexy accent who’s as secretive as she is. He may have followed her to Rome to help, but something about him seems too good to be true.
      Nothing is as it appears, and when everything she’s ever known is revealed to be a lie, Anastasia has to believe in one impossibility.
      She will find her sister.”
