Truth Stained Lies (Moonlighters Series) by Terri Blackstock

Book Description:  Cathy Cramer is a former lawyer and investigative blogger who writes commentary on local homicides. When she finds a threatening note warning her that she's about to experience the same kind of judgment and speculation that she dishes out in her blog, Cathy writes it off as mischief ... until her brother is caught in the middle of a murder investigation---the victim is his ex-wife. As her brother is tried and convicted in the media, and bloggers and commentators like her have a field day, Cathy wonders if she should have taken the threat more seriously. Cathy and her two sisters, Holly and Juliet, moonlight as part-time private investigators, working to solve their brother's ex-wife's murder. Juliet, a stay-at-home mom of two boys, and Holly, a scattered ne'er-do-well who drives a taxi, put aside their fear and lack of confidence to learn the art of investigation. But will it be too late to save their brother from a murder conviction, or his five-year-old son who's the killer's next target?

My Thoughts:  I love to read books authored by Terri Blackstock.  
I liked this read for two reasons:  It's a suspenseful thriller mystery and Cathy and her two sisters are moonlighting as private investigators.  Have you ever seen three sisters in action?  Well, while reading this novel I could only imagine the catastrophes and feelings that these sisters are dealing  with, as each sister brings her own truth to help the brother.
And the title!  Truth stained lies?  This title seems like such an oxymoron to me...somewhat like, the deafening silence of injustice!
Cathy is an investigative blogger (didn't know this existed!), Holly is oh!so! funny!  She drives a taxi!  And Juliet is a stay-at-home mom.
The sisters come together with all their gifts to try  and save their brother.  
A remarkable story!  One of Terri's finest works ever!  I'm {im}patiently waiting for the next moonlighters read!
A fun, not.so.light read {kinda.scary! we share so much personal info on the net now and don't even realize it!} but with escapades and godly influences around every corner!
