Happy Release Day!


Let Me Lie

Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh
Print and e-book, 384 pages
Published March 13th 2018 by Berkley

In the newest psychological thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of I Let You Go and I See You, Clare Mackintosh brings us a gripping story about how those who love us never really leave us…

Two years ago, Tom and Caroline Johnson committed suicide, one seemingly unable to live without the other. Their adult daughter, Anna, is struggling to come to terms with her parents’ deaths, unable to comprehend why they chose to end their lives. Now with a young baby herself, she feels her mother’s presence keenly and is determined to find out what really happened to her parents. But as Anna digs up the past, someone is trying to stop her. She soon learns that nothing is as it seemed.


My thoughts about Let Me Lie ~~ 

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First lines—"Death does not suit me. I wear it like a borrowed coat; it slips off my shoulders and trails in the dirt. It is ill fitting. Uncomfortable."

Oh my, so many lies. So many. A whole story full of lies. I was never sure what to believe. But Clare's books are like that, full of twists and turns and truths and lies. And once again, I was totally taken in by this story, continuously trying to figure it all out.

Let Me Lie will keep you guessing and it will keep you turning the pages, as you work to find out what are the real lies and what is the truth. It is definitely a page-turner and a wonderful read!

I received an ARC of this book from Berkley Publishing Group via NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.
