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.

Chasing Truth by Julie Cross is the first book in the Eleanor Ames series. This series is a bit of a young adult mystery/thriller mixed with some romance.

Eleanor Ellie Ames is a teenage reformed con artist now living with her older sister. Ellie has never known any other life than that of a grift... ...more

Julie cross is quite easily becoming one of my favourite authors. Chasing Truth is my 3rd book by her and it was really good. Now is the time to read this book as the sequel Hiding lies is out in April 2018.

Eleanor is living with her sister after her life got turned upside down. Her normal is tot... ...more

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

By Kristy April 16, 2018

Every time I think Im getting too old for YA, a book like this sucks me in. I was hesitant the first few pages when our main character, Ellie, waxes poetic about the new boy next door, Miles. But once that finished, a fun, fast-paced, twisty little YA mystery began. It reminded me a bit of Jennif... ...more

4.5 stars!

I really love Julie Crosss 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 Ive seen every episode. I... ...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 Amess 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' is the explosive first installment in a new young adult thriller series. I've read several of the author's other books and really enjoyed them, so I was excited to get my hands on this one. I was not disappointed. This novel lived up to my hopes and expectations - and the... ...more

4.5/5 stars!

I am a huge fan of veronica mars and when the author of this book offered me an ARC of the second book in this series I became interested and decided to pick up this book when it was on sale. BEST DESITION EVER!!! I LOVED THIS BOOK! The author said that as a fan she wanted to write a... ...more

By Rebekah August 22, 2017

As soon as I saw the possible hate-to-love vibe from the synopsis I immediately went searching and picked up the book.

Another thing that intrigued me about this book is the fact that its a bit longer than your typical YA which I LOVE because sometimes I feel like books in the YA genre are a lot s... ...more

Thanks so much to Entangled Teen via Netgalley for the free review copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

By now I've read a few of Julie Cross's books, and I've enjoyed them all, so I figured I was in safe hands by requesting this title. I was pretty confident I would enjoy "Chasing Truth", but... ...more

Eleanor had recently abandoned her past as a con artist to reunite with her sister. Just when she seemed to be settling into her new life, her only friend allegedly committed suicide. I say allegedly, because Ellie doesn't believe Simon would kill himself, and she was determined... ...more

Eleanor goes to school with the rich kids, but she isn't one of them. She's magnificent at pretending though. At Holden Prep many of the students are keeping secrets. When her best friend Simon dies Eleanor doesn't trust the outcome of the police investigation. Something doesn't add up and she ow... ...more

By Siobhan September 27, 2016

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!

Jason Bourne has met his match in sharp, feisty Eleanor Ames. What a fantastic leading lady! Ellie is a su... ...more

Thank you to Andye from 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

This was almost too easy. Here I thought Miles might provide a real challenge for me, given his no-bullshit approach to every situation. I mean, Im pretty much 90 percent bullshit.

Why have I put off reading this for so long?? I honestly have no idea why it took me forever to finally read thi... ...more

Engaging story. It kept my mind off the real world and was just what I needed. You have to be able to turn a blind eye to the improbability and just go with the flow and have fun with the story or you won't enjoy it.
