The Lies We Told by Camilla Way ~ Publication Day 10-9-18 @BerkleyPub @CamillaLWay
Beth has always known there was something strange about her daughter, Hannah. The lack of emotion, the disturbing behavior, the apparent delight in hurting others…Sometimes Beth is scared of her and what she could be capable of.
Luke comes from the perfect family, with the perfect parents. But one day, he disappears without a trace, and his girlfriend, Clara, is desperate to discover what has happened to him.
A life built on lies
As Clara digs into the past, she realizes that no family is truly perfect, and uncovers a link between Luke’s long-lost sister and a strange girl named Hannah. Now Luke’s life is in danger because of the lies once told and the secrets once kept. Can Clara find him before it’s too late?
This book has every ingredient that a recipe for a fabulous thriller should have! It was based on lies, played on the sympathy of the reader, made everyone a suspect in a mystery that will have you guessing until the end, and wrapped up with an incredible plot twist that will leave you breathless!
Camilla Way created a storyline that wasn’t entirely unbelievable which made the characters seem real and everyday. She wrote a story from different perspectives that left me questioning myself as I read and my suspicions as the plot unraveled. I absolutely love a thriller that can keep my guessing until the end. (doesn’t happen often)
I loved loved loved this book and will no doubt read more of her work. The Lies We Told will most certainly make our top reads of 2018!
