Everything But The Truth by Gillian McAllister


Book Description:

It all started with the email.

It came through to her boyfriend’s iPad in the middle of the night. Rachel didn’t even mean to look. She loves Jack, and she’s pregnant with their child. She trusts him. But now she’s seen it, she can’t undo that moment, or the chain of events it has set in motion.

Why has Jack been lying about his past? Just what exactly is he hiding? And doesn’t Rachel have a right to know the truth at any cost?

My Thoughts:

Everything but the Truth is a story full of suspense and intrigue.

Rachel’s mind goes into over drive after seeing an email come through late at night on Jack’s ipad. I have to say it’s quite obvious that Rachel has some trust issues, from that point on she makes it her mission to find out exactly what Jack is hiding.

Throughout the story I kept wondering whether sometimes it’s better to not know the truth, though like Rachel, I was desperate to know. The further into the story it’s obvious that Rachel was right to go with her gut instincts.

Other than Jack’s secret, him and Rachel make a great couple. They are expecting a baby which both are excited about and I was really hoping that what ever it was, wasn’t going to be enough to split them up.

I have to say when it all comes out, whilst it didn’t shock me, it certainly wasn’t what I was expecting. Some parts, if anything, were extremely thought provoking which I liked as it really puts you into the characters shoes and makes you think about what you would do if you were them.

Everything but the Truth is without a doubt a read that will have you totally engrossed in it. The author weaves a story that will have readers hooked from start to end. I’m not sure what I was actually expecting from this book as I thought it sounded like it could be a psychological thriller from the description, which it isn’t by the way. What it is though is a story that is shrouded in lies and suspense and without a doubt makes for an engaging read. Hard to believe this is the authors debut novel and very excited to read more by her in the future.

My thanks to Netgalley and Penguin UK – Michael Joseph for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.

Everything But The Truth is out on the 9th March and available to pre order on Amazon.
