If you could sum up Ring of Lies in three words, what would they be?
Intriguing, page-turner, well-written
What other book might you compare Ring of Lies to, and why?
I would say this genre is simliar to Mary Higgens Clark's books - and just as well done! The writing flowed seamlessly, the dialog felt completely natural, the suspense never let up, and the action scenes were riveting. I loved listening to this book!
What does Michelle Ford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I fell in love with Michelle Ford's female English accent. It was gorgeous, and reminded me of a grown up Haley Mills based on my childhood memories of PollyAnna. (Not that this book is anything like PollyAnna!) Her voice is lyrical, warm, and simply beautiful. Ms. Ford's American male accent was a bit "nasal" sounding for all of the American men in the story, and once in a great while she slipped from one accent to the other in the wrong places, but it was rare and didn't bother me. I could NEVER do what this amazing narrator did, which is hold up a conversation with a Brit and an American all the way through the book. I imagine it might be very difficult to do, and I bow down to her immense talent.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
An innocent woman discovers shocking secrets about her husband after his death, aided by an FBI agent she can't resist, and who has his own share of troubles to hide.
Any additional comments?
I really loved the main character, Grace. She was well-rounded and quite believable. Jack...well, I'm a guy. At first he ticked me off because of his situation at home. I believe in family first and no fooling around! But then more came out about Jack's true situation (no spoilers here!) and in the end I empathized with him and was cheering him on.
I particularly loved the action scenes - there is a swamp scene where Grace and Jack are on the run from villains, dashing through the cold swamp waters...phenomenal! Also thoroughly enjoyed the description of the house in Florida. Wouldn't mind going there right about now!

Michelle Ford does a great job narrating this book. Her voices for both male and female characters were good and I believed in the chemistry between the main characters.
How well do you know your spouse? With multiple secrets being exposed after Grace’s husband Daniel dies, it’s clear the answer is she didn’t know him at all.
This story begins in London and takes us across the Atlantic to Florida as we follow Grace on her journey to uncover all the lies and discover who Daniel really is.
Her partner on this journey is Jack West, FBI agent and a man she met 6 months prior when they were allocated seats next to each other at a tennis tournament. From the outset, it’s clear Grace and Jack are attracted to each other.
If you’re looking for a complicated whodunit, this is not the book. Even I, a person who tends to miss the obvious when reading mystery books, was able to identify who the murderer was early on.
The book delivers a good dose of mystery, suspense and romance and I enjoyed listening to it. I will be adding this author to my want-to read list.

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
HONESTLY LOVED THIS!!!!!!!!!!! I was drawn in and captivated from chapter one....Grace is a character you immediately want to like..she seems very delicate and you feel sorry for her...You can tell she is a really good person, who has been taken for granted for a very long time. Grace's husband dies suddenly in a freak car accident, and she all of a sudden is thrown into a web of his lies and deceit....She learns he has a home in Miami, and leaves London to settle his affairs...well Grace is prone to anxiety attacks...and calls the only person she knows there Jack to help her...Grace had met Jack several months prior and they had an instant attraction, but Grace is a good woman, and stayed faithful...Jack reluctantly agrees to help her, as he had moved on and now has a new baby and a not so nice girlfriend who really wants nothing to do with him or the baby...Well as Jack and Grace start to dig deeper into her dead husbands affairs they uncover a whole dangerous web of lies, deceit, infidelity and lots of heartache for Grace....this is one story you will NOT want to put down...and it really did leave me wanting MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Highly recommend, well worth a listen and a credit!

I received this audio book as a gift in exchange for a honest and unbiased review. This audio book "Ring of Lies" is about a woman who discovers everything she ever knew about her man is based on lies. It is well written. It is dangerous and suspenseful and even a little romantic. This book really made me wonder what I would do if this happened to me... I just don't know. I would have to say, I 'd have to wait till it actually happened to know how I would react.
The author, Victoria Howard did a great job writing this story. It has danger, excitement, police and investigative work. the plot is well written too! The narrator, Michelle Ford, did a fine job delivering this story to us with her multiple voices and accents. She was able to add emotions in her content as well. Great job both of you!
