Review for One More Lie by Amy Lloyd

Paperback, 331 pages
Published May 28th 2019 by Hanover Square Press

A thrilling new novel of psychological suspense from the award-winning, internationally bestselling author of The Innocent Wife 

Charlotte wants to start fresh. She wants to forget her past, forget prison and, most of all, forget Sean. But old habits die hard. Despite the ankle monitor she must wear as part of her parole agreement and frequent visits to her therapist, she soon finds herself sliding back toward the type of behavior that sent her to prison in the first place. The further down that path she goes, however, the closer she gets to the crime that put her in prison all those years ago. And that's the one memory she can't face. Until, one day, Sean tracks her down.

My Thoughts…

One More Lie is a psychological thriller that tells the story of a young girl (8 years old) who has led a life full of upheaval, struggles, and trouble.    Along with her best friend Sean, they managed to get in trouble repeatedly but always seem to find their way back to each other.   I am not sure, even after finishing the book, if Sean was the reason for the trouble or if he just never stopped it from happening.  

The story was told from both Sean and Charlotte’s points of view with flashbacks to the past and the present.     I never really was sure what was the truth and what was part of their memory remember wrongly.    The story seemed broken up and didn’t flow as seamlessly as I would have liked it.     The ending left me wondering what was happening and it didn’t tie the story together like I expected. 

I enjoyed reading One More Lie but it isn’t a book I’d rave about to my friends.   It is easy to read but it isn’t as gripping as I like a thriller to be.
