Lies, Lies, Lies by Adele Parks
Print & e-book, 384 pages
Expected publication: August 4th 2020 by MIRA

Daisy and Simon’s marriage isn’t what it seems…

After years together, the arrival of longed-for daughter Millie sealed everything in place. They’re a happy little family of three.

So what if Simon drinks a bit too much sometimes—Daisy’s used to it. She knows he’s just letting off steam. Until one night at a party things spiral horribly out of control. And their happy little family of three will never be the same again.

In Lies, Lies, Lies, #1 Sunday Times bestselling author Adele Parks explores the darkest corners of a relationship in free fall in a mesmerizing tale of marriage and secrets.

My thoughts about Lies, Lies, Lies ~~ 

(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 line—"May 1976: Simon was six years old when he first tasted beer."

There are a lot of books out now that are about lies.... and secrets.... and more lies. It seems to be a trend, or maybe they're just the types of books that are grabbing my attention right now. I do love how each author puts their own spin on their characters' packs of lies.

Lies, Lies, Lies is full of secrets and lies—and characters I liked and then didn't like—because of the lies and secrets they were keeping. Simon and Daisy definitely have problems in their marriage. Drinking is Simon's escape but it makes Daisy question why she stays with him. Then one night, everything comes down on both of them and their lives are changed forever. More secrets and lies come out. Will that be what finally ends it for them?

This was an intriguing story with it's share of twists and turns. I was drawn into the story from the start and quickly devoured it—very satisfying. This is the first book by Adele Parks that I have read but she is definitely be on my radar now and I'll be eagerly awaiting her next book. 

I received an ARC of Lies, Lies, Lies from the publisher and this is my honest opinion.
