Chasing Truth (Eleanor Ames #1)
by Julie Cross
Publication Date: September 27, 2016
Publisher: Entangled TEEN
At Holden Prep, the rich and powerful rule the school—and they’ll do just about anything to keep their dirty little secrets hidden.
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 thinks she’s the killer.

The Cover: I wasn't a huge fan of the cover. It just seemed kind of boring considering the book itself was far from it.
The Plot line: Chasing Truth was a well written mystery adventure, that was highly action packed. Several times I thought I had it all figured out. But then there would be a major plot twist and I would be guessing again. Even in the end, I kept expecting some last twist or turn to throw me off. Guess I have to wait for Book 2.
The Characters: All of the characters in Chasing Truth were fantastic. I was never quite sure who the villain was and honestly, I think I like that in a story. Ellie was terrific and definitely bad ass. I loved Harper and Adian, as well. Especially Harper's cooking attempts!
Was it Worth Reading? Definitely! It is actually worth a reread. Chasing Truth is one of those books that will go on my read over and over and over again shelf. Between the engaging characters and the nonstop plot, I highly recommend this book to readers of action, mystery and contemporary and give it 4 out of 5 crossbows(tipped with CIA truth serum of course).
