‘The Lies I Told Me’ By Paula Shablo

Fanny and Emma share a secret from the past. It is NOT the fact that Emma sees and speaks with the dead on a regular basis. After all, as Emma could tell you, ghosts are not scary–it’s the living you have to watch out for.

There is danger lurking, and it must be dealt with. Will two women with clashing personalities and a shared experience be up to the task?
