Who doesn't crave a little escape? Dreaming of small town life and rural charm, Alex and Rainey find a deal on an old rustic home they can't resist. But soon after Rainey moves, her preoccupation with weird local history and the complications of living alone in the woods take a toll. Alex worries that the long nights and growing isolation are driving her stir crazy. When the Sugar House is damaged and Rainey goes missing, Alex doesn't know where to turn. Was it a storm, vandals, or something worse? What happened at the Sugar House? The only thing worse than wondering is finding out.

Reviews:Lee Murray on Mini Reviews wrote:

Excerpt
"Liar is a disquieting slow burn tale, full of small town superstition and guardedness, and a startling study of isolation and otherness. Highly recommended."

IndieMuse (Richard Martin) on IndieMuse wrote:

Excerpt
"a character-driven, thoughtful and disturbing story all the more scary for how relevant it is for us all at this moment."
