REVIEW...Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

Hardcover, 400 pages
Expected publication: March 8th 2018 by Sphere

The police say it was suicide.
Anna says it was murder.
They're both wrong.

One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since.

Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to question her parents’ deaths. But by digging up their past, she’ll put her future in danger. Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie…

My Thoughts…

Let Me Lie is a true psychological thriller.     The suspense, the mystery, the secrets all feed into the story keeping the reader guessing as to what will happen next.  There were so many twists and turns that I found myself wanting to skip ahead and see where they were heading.    And oh the lies… so many lies.   Lies on top of lies on top of lies.     Sounds like it could get confusing but it was just the opposite.    They all played into the story perfectly. 

The story is told from multiple points of views.   I loved that one of the points of view was unidentified.   This kept me guessing as who was telling their story without revealing themselves.    From the different voices it was fun to try to tell who was lying, who was telling the truth, and who was telling the story as they knew it whether truthful or not.  

If you are looking for a psychological thriller full of twists and moment that will make you stop and think…Let Me Lie is the book for you.
