A PROMISE OF SAFEKEEPING by Lisa Dale

Congratulations
Your Invisible Pixie
Please send your mailing address to stephanieelliot@gmail.com so you can receive your copy of 
A Promise of Safekeeping!






Surprise, I’ve got ANOTHER book for you this week. I thought this might happen - I think there will be many weeks where I'll feature more than one book!

(Please don't forget about yesterday's book, Beautiful Disaster, and make sure to go HERE to enter to win that book as well!)

A Promise of Safekeeping by Lisa Dale is another page-turner, full of suspense and surprises. When Lauren Matthews wrongfully sends an innocent man to prison, the one thing she desperately wants to do when he is released is ask forgiveness. He’s lost nine years of his life because of her error in judgment. How can she give him back that time she’s taken from him?

But in order to get forgiveness from Arlen, the man she’s wrongfully prosecuted, Lauren must get through his best friend, Will. He remembers Lauren from those long ago days and will do anything to protect Arlen from Lauren. 

Lauren prides herself on being able to read people, but when she gets to Virginia to seek forgiveness from Arlen, she’ll discover more than the importance of interpreting body language – she’ll learn about long ago kept secrets, redemption, friendship, forgiveness and love.

Get the book on Amazon: A Promise of Safekeeping



In A Promise of Safekeeping, the book deals with interpreting a person’s body language to tell if that person is telling the truth or lying. Promises are hard to keep, and it’s also hard to tell a lie. Do you sometimes feel like a little white lie is a necessary evil? Tell me how so, and you’ll be entered to win a copy of A Promise of Safekeeping! Or tell me that lying is completely evil and you’ll still be entered to win a copy! Remember to leave an identifying/unique name or email address on your comment entry! 

MaNiC MoMMy is aiming to feature great books each and every week this year, and you’ll have a chance to win it as well! Please stop by often as I’m now posting new books more than once a week! Open to US/Canada residents only, and thanks to all the participating authors and publicists for providing the books. You can check back on this post over the weekend to see if you’ve won the book!

Lying is definitely necessary sometimes when it comes to sparing the other persons feelings. Or if you don't feel like sharing something with someone.

sometimes it's necessary to lie in order to spare someone's feelings!

susieqlaw said...

Human nature causes us when put on the spot, to react and sometimes tell a lie. What I have found and try to do, is answer without giving an excuse.

Crystal said...

Depends on the situation. Sometimes it's in everyone's best interest to hear a white lie than the truth.

As long as it doesn't hurt anyone.

Sometimes it's necessary to tell a lie. I don't like it but if no one gets hurt-then it makes it somewhat OK.

definitely sometimes necessary!

IandSsmom said...

I try not to lie and I really don't like it when others lie so I guess that's why I try not to but on the other hand I'm a mom and sometimes lies are a necessary! My son thought the car wouldn't move unless he was in his car seat for way longer that he should have!! :)

Jeffie T said...

Depends. Most of the time it's better to tell the truth, but occassionally the little lie is necessary.

Melissa said...

I think lying is okay when you're trying to protect someone's feelings and it's not a big deal when they won't know the truth.

A little white lie can be necessary to spare someone's feelings. I don't particularly like to lie but something it is necessary. It depends on the situation!!

Margaret said...

Little white lies can turn into big ones quite easily however if it is an innocent white lie that can honestly make some one happy I think it is acceptable. It is a fine though.

Little white lies are ok to avoid hurting someone's feelings. I don't feel you should always tell the truth if you are just doing it because you feel guilty and nothing will be changed because of the truth....you will feel better for having told the truth, but the other person will feel like crap....not cool. Or even for simple things ie. you're in a bar with your best girlfriend and a guy comments on the vastness of her butt. When she asks you to confirm what he said because she can't believe her own ears, you LIE, and say you heard him say she has a lot of class!! :D

I little white lie is fine...like when your hubby asks how much your new purse, shoes, etc...costs!

I think little white lies can be ok when it comes to sparring peoples feelings from hurt. Some situations you really shouldn't lie and suck it up and tell it like it is.

A white lie is acceptable if the truth will hurt someone. Then again, we lie to our kids about Santa, the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny, to name a few. I try to be honest, that way I don't have to remember what "story" I made up!

I am incapable of lying, however, sometimes I just omit the truth in order to spare feelings

I think sometimes a white lie is Ok to avoid hurt feelings, but I still try to avoid them, I'm more one to 'spin' the truth or 'lie by omission'. ;-)

Bridget said...

I think I little white lie is sometimes necessary, when feelings are involved. But, other than that, no.

Ally said...

I do it to my kids...A LOT. Sometimes it's time saving, or necessary, sometimes I'm just lazy. An example would be when they want to call Grandma. Sometimes I just say she is busy or sleeping because I don't want to do the phone thing.

TaraUB said...

Lie, lie, lie, then deny. Not really but I had a male roommate in college and that was his motto when it came to cheating on his girlfriend.

ludy2288 said...

If telling a white lie will spare someone's feelings and there is no harm done from it then yes, it is necessary at times.

Kelly said...

sometimes you have to lie to prevent hurting someone.

Melissa said...

Well I think lying is wrong, but sometimes people just don't want to hear the truth. But I only think that's okay on little things, not major life moments. Melissa Rem

Nearl said...

Yes I do think that little white lies are needed at times. I know I have been told them and I''m ok with it cause I'm sure it spared me some hard times.

Read Baby Read said...

When your young children ask you how babies get in their mommy's tummies, a white lie is called for! Other than that, only to protect someone's feelings.

Denise said...

White lies are totally ok, especially when the truth is just going to hurt feelings unnecessarily.

Emma S. said...

I think a white lie isn't an evil when it won't harm others. Sometimes when a girlfriend asks how she looks in something, sometimes it is better to sugarcoat than be completely honest.

ncsuloges said...

I have to say I am bad at lying when I am trying to make a good story better. :)

LizzybethDJ said...

Some small white lies are OK ... but... I'm also not someone to lie to a friend and say an outfit looks good when it doesn't (I'd want someone to tell me if my clothes look bad on me - we all want to look our best).

Leslie said...

I believe that white lies are vital. Can you imagine being absolutely truthful all the time like that in the movie Liar, Liar? You would hurt so many feelings. However, lying about the big stuff is just unacceptable. LeslieGC

BrendaL71 said...

You have to do white lies, there is no such thing as no lying. when my daughter draws something that I have no idea what it is I tell her she was very creative and it look great. When my new friend has a new baby, we always so how cute even if we make not think so. when she also asks if she looks ok and we are already at the party, I have to tell her she looks great.

Bernadette7 said...

White lies can be used but not abused. The thing to watch out for is the root of why your are lying- is it to spare you or someone else?

accidentalgypsy said...

when I'd rather keep something to myself or if the truth would really hurt someone, I do tell little white lies.

buttah said...

I think sometimes it is necessary to protect people's feelings with little lies. You just have to be careful that those little lies don't grow into monsters and come back and bite you in the ass!

CAnative said...

somtimes it's necessary whether we like it or not.

Krystal said...

I think telling lies is wrong. Though, I think we tend to do it because it's usually the easy way out, especially if we justify it.

Katie said...

It depends on the lie. I always am afraid I am going to get caught in my lies so I try not to do it anymore (got caught alot in college...my mom was too smart!)

lizett34 said...

I do not agree with lying. I believe that there is a better way to tell something rather than lying about it.

equinn726 said...

Like many other comments here, I do think little white lies are sometimes necessary to spare feelings.

Neckmeat said...

It's totally necessary...just not in excess. But it's true that one little white lie can tumble into LOTS of little white lies. It's just part of life & I choose to believe what I want when I want to regardless. LOL

Lindsay Elizabeth said...

Lying is only necessary for positive surprises such an engagement, Santa Claus etc. Other than that lying is evil evil evil!

Anonymous said...

I am a horrible liar. I really can't do it. I can, however, skirt around a topic to evade lying. Is that lying by omission?

Juliet Farmer said...

it can be a necessary vice--i try to only do so to hurt spare feelings

Susan @ The Book Bag said...

Little white lies are necessary sometimes, especially to keep from hurting someone.

Melissa said...

totally depends on the situation, but sometimes they're a good technique for saving face or covering your a$$.

EBrowning said...

I hate lying! But I do think sometimes it is easier to lie than to hurt someone's feelings.

Anonymous said...

I think lying is okay if it is to keep from hurting someone's feelings. Lying to save your own @$$, is never acceptable.

faithspage said...

I am such a hypocrite when it comes to white lies. Of course if I told one it's ok. But, watch out if I am told one. Liar Liar Liar.
At least I admit I am wrong (is that a good thing?)

The occasional little white lie is necessary. Especially if telling the truth is only going to be hurtful to someone unnecessarily.

Kelleyc said...

Sometimes little white lies are necessary (like when my daughter asks if she sings well!! Lol) but in life it's better to tell the truth. That's what we teach are kids so we need to lead by example. It's not always easy but it's easier than trying to remember your lies!

I have no problem with little white lies, if the end justifies the means.

Ready To Be A Momma said...

It's definitely necessary to tell a white lie on occasion. It's much better than ruining someone's day over something silly.

This will make you sad . .

little white lies become vital when dealing with a loved on with dementia . . . :(

Yes...little white lies are a necessary evil. If only to spare someone else's feelings.

Lilian said...

It is estimated the average person lies five times a day, many times unconsciously. Honestly, I don't view lying as an evil, more like a tool for conversation...people don't alway take honesty well. Not myself either.

White lies are definitely necessary, like when the kids might not be ready to hear the exact truth or when you are keeping a secret to respect someone else's privacy, or even it's just not always necessary to be truthful if it's going to be hurtful to someone.

I think a white lie to spare someone's feelings is sometimes a good thing. I see many others have this same idea, but that's the first thing that came to mindd.

I absolutely believe that we sometimes have to lie - in order to protect someone's feelings, maintain a professional relationship if you're talking about lying to someone in the workplace about something personal that isn't their business...I could go on and on. :)
