The Lies We Told Review

Title: The Lies We Told
Author: Camilla Way
Type: Thriller, Mystery 
Pages: 336
Rating: 3.5/5
Method Read: Physical

Thrilling and chilling novel told in two different timelines and perspectives. In the past, Beth, realizes her daughter Hannah isn’t like other children and soon her behavior becomes unbearable. It begins to put a strain on her marriage as she worries for her other child, Toby, and what Hannah might do to him. In the present, Clara’s boyfriend, Luke, goes missing and soon she finds he had received threatening stalker emails. As she begins to look into where he may have gone she finds he has secrets. One can assume that these two stories will collide but when and where will leave you speeding though this story super fast!

This story is super fast paced, kept me engaged but in the end I didn’t love it. I didn’t feel connected to the characters at all and the story was a bit predictable at times which made the story feel juvenile. I don’t regret reading it and will recommend it to anyone who is looking for a typical thriller that won’t make your brain hurt as you try to find out what’s going on. I’m willing to give this author another try.
