Awarded 1st Place in the Chanticleer Blue Ribbon Mystery & Mayhem Awards, Humor Category. In this award-winning humorous chick-lit mystery, a former best-selling romance writer tries to pick up the pieces of her life after getting her heart stomped on by her lying, cheating boyfriend, and returns to her hometown in Florida where she contends with family, reporters, hurricanes, wildlife, a hunky Texan cowboy, a drop-dead gorgeous doctor ... and murder. What readers are saying about RULES OF LYING: "Absolutely, unequivocally LOVED it ... Had me laughing uncontrollably and reading out loud to my co-workers." "This book had it all-humor, mystery, suspense, and romance. I can't wait to read the next book in this series" "I couldn't stop reading on the IPad, it was hilarious. I really enjoyed this writer. She is up there with the top notch best sellers. I can hardly wait to read more from this author. She gives Janet Evanovich some good competition." "This book made me laugh, it made me dream, it made me cry (just a little) and made me take a look at myself. A little bit mystery, a little bit romance, a little bit chic-lit, Rules of Lying is a lot of entertainment.

About the Author

Stephie Smith was born in Parkersburg, West Virginia, the fifth of six girls. Early years were spent making mischief and, in general, driving her parents crazy while the family migrated between Ohio, West Virginia, and Florida. In fact, her family moved so often--18 times before Stephie finished sixth grade--that some people suspected they were running from the law. Stephie left home at 14, finished high school at 16, and joined the Air Force at 18, graduating with honors from the USAF Schools of Electronics and Instrumentation. After attending several colleges and universities around the country (switching majors from Chemistry to Art to English to Psychology but never figuring out what she wanted to be when she grew up), she followed her sisters to east central Florida and settled there. She remains there today writing historical romance, humorous women's fiction, and computer how-to books. You can contact her through her website She loves to hear from readers.
