“I found her.” One phone call and three whispered words is all it takes for Paige Fischer to risk everything - including her own life.

One missing sister...
Twelve years ago, Paige Fischer's identical twin, Jessica was kidnapped. Blaming herself, Paige never gave up hoping Jess is still alive, despite everyone else in her life insisting it’s time to move on.

One devoted fiancé...
Jamie is the perfect partner, and father to their son, but when he asks Paige to set a date for their wedding, she tells him she can't, not until her sister is found. Every step forward Paige takes with her life feels like a betrayal to Jess and until Paige knows for sure what happened to her, she can't settle down.

One fateful lie...
There's been a sighting and all it takes is one phone call, one betrayal and one whispered threat for Paige to throw caution to the wind and do what nobody else could: rescue Jess. But what if Paige doesn't make it in time? Is Jess still alive? Or is someone playing a twisted game with Paige?

Whatever outcome, the only thing Paige knows is that she's willing to risk it all, even her own life, to save her sister.

Lies and secrets collide in this page-turning suspense you won’t be able to put down, written by the NYT bestselling author who brought you Finding Emma and The Perfect Secret

My thoughts about Lies We Tell Ourselves ~~

(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 lines.)

First lines—"Everyone lies: the doctors who say I'm safe, the nurses who promise I'm protected, the police who swear to find my abuser. Everyone is lying—to themselves, to me"

OMG! This book had me spellbound from the very first, intense, heart-pounding chapter. I knew I was in for a roller-coaster ride when I came to the end of those first few pages. And it didn't let up—there where multiple times that my heart was racing just like the characters' were. So intense and scary!

Like a lot of other thrillers that I have read, there are so many twists and turns to the storyline, as well as being full of those characters that you aren't sure if you can trust. Who is the bad guy, and how can he really be that evil? So many questions and doubts. But Steena has woven a story that is impossible to figure out until you get to the end of this exciting story and everything you thought you knew is wrong. 

I love this dark side to Steena's writing that we've been seeing lately and these dark stories of hers just keep getting better and better. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next! 

I highly recommend Lies We Tell Ourselves! If you're up for an amazing thriller, this is definitely the one you should dive into. 

I received a copy of Lies We Tell Ourselves from the author and this is my honest opinion.
