Mini REVIEW: Lies She Told

Lies She Told by Cate Holahan
Release Date; September 12th 2017 by Crooked Lane Books

Sometimes the truth is darker than fiction.

Liza Jones has thirty days to write the thriller that could put her back on the bestseller list. In the meantime, she’s struggling to start a family with her husband, who is distracted by the disappearance of his best friend, Nick. With stresses weighing down in both her professional and her personal life, Liza escapes into writing her latest heroine.

Beth is a new mother who suspects her husband is cheating on her while she’s home alone providing for their newborn. Angry and betrayed, Beth sets out to catch him in the act and make him pay for shattering the illusion of their perfect life. But before she realizes it, she’s tossing the body of her husband’s mistress into the river.

Then the lines between fiction and reality begin to blur. Nick’s body is dragged from the Hudson and Liza’s husband is arrested for his murder. Before her deadline is up, Liza will have to face up to the truths about the people around her, including herself. If she doesn’t, the end of her heroine’s story could be the end of her own.

Liza a thriller author whose husband is distracted by the disappearance of his best friend and Beth is one of Liza’s characters who suspects her husband of cheating. Told in alternating chapters between Liza and Beth, the lines become blurred as to what happened and who did it.

They say authors put pieces of themselves into their characters but how alike are Liza and Beth?

Liza and Beth were such an interesting duo, both woven together until you couldn’t tell them apart.

Ohhhhhh I do love a bit of unreliable narration especially with such and exciting premise. If you can’t trust the narration, who can you trust?

I loved this book, it was so tense and confusing (in a good way) that I tore through the pages at an alarming rate. I would recommend to any fan of thriller looking for a quick easy tense read with a brilliant plot.

Thank you NetGalley, Crooked Lane Books & Cate Holahan
