Peek Inside Chasing Truth

When former con artist Eleanor Ames’s homecoming date commits suicide, she’s positive there’s something more going on. The more questions she asks, though, the more she crosses paths with Miles Beckett. He’s sexy, mysterious, arrogant…and he’s asking all the same questions. Eleanor might not trust him, but they can’t keep their hands off of each other. Fighting the attraction is almost as hard as ignoring the fact that Miles isn’t telling her the truth…and that there’s a good chance he could be the killer.

When former con artist Eleanor Ames’s homecoming date commits suicide, she’s positive there’s something more going on. The more questions she asks, though, the more she crosses paths with Miles Beckett. He’s sexy, mysterious, arrogant…and he’s asking all the same questions.

Eleanor might not trust him – she doesn’t even like him – but they can’t keep their hands off of each other. Fighting the infuriating attraction is almost as hard as ignoring the fact that Miles isn’t telling her the truth…and that there’s a good chance he could be the killer.

By Melissa (YA Book Shelf) July 27, 2016

This is a long(er) book for a YA novel, but it was so good that I dropped everything I had to do, or at least pushed it aside until later, to read this novel in pretty close to one sitting. It's so compelling and the story keeps you guessing (and turning pages) well beyond the normal amount of ti... ...more

4.5 stars!

I really love Julie Cross’s writing so I was super excited to see that she was writing a mystery, suspense YA series! First of all, you have to know that I am obsessed with crime and suspense stories. I could watch Investigation Discovery 24/7… Dateline, I think I’ve seen every episode... ...more

I love crime shows. My mom and I are either bingeing a new drama on Netflix or watching episodes of Elementary on Hulu. This was a combination of both.

Eleanor Ames’s entire life was a con. She had no real identity and picked a name that reminded her of the life and family that she knew. Then her... ...more

Chasing Truth was an exhilarating read chock-full of action, suspense, intrigue, and a smattering of swoon-worthy romance. I loved every intense, pulse-pounding, heart-clenching second of it!

Thank you to Andye from readingteen.net for letting me read this!!!

The cast the cast the cast THE CAST! I want to either be Eleanor's best friend. Or BE her. She was wonderfully sarcastic and manipulative, I loved her development. I also liked that Ellie was a bit of an unreliable narrator. She d... ...more

So, mystery/suspense isn't one of my go to genres, but when I heard one of my favorite authors was writing a series that was Veronica Mars-esque, I knew I had to read it. It was a long book, so I was slightly intimidated in the beginning, but it w... ...more

Julie Cross writes one of my favorite characters of all time, so I was legit jumping up and down when I got the advanced copy of Chasing Truth, the first book in her brand new suspense Eleanor Ames series.

By Suzana July 03, 2017

If Veronica Mars were a con artist, she would be Ellie. She is just as smart, sassy, and quick-witted. She is a gem of a character who retains her intelligence even while falling in love. She never gets stupid over the guy. And Miles is actually worthy of her. He's an intelligent, decent guy. The... ...more

This book was great. The last time I read a series about espionage and mystery, it became one of my all-time favourites, so I was a little apprehensive about this one.
