Tia never harmed anyone. So why does someone want to destroy her?
Tia is walking home with her children, along the lakeside of their quiet, safe town, when she realises something is wrong with her five-year-old daughter, Rosie. She seems troubled, not at all her usual happy self.
But when Tia finally coaxes Rosie to open up, she wishes she hadn’t. Because her sweet daughter asks a question Tia never thought she’d hear.
‘Mummy, why did you kill someone?’
Tia knows how rumours spread around her small town. She just can’t understand who would have shared such a horrible story. Or why.
It can’t have anything to do with what happened. Only her two best friends really remember that…
Tia thought she could trust Fiona and Kelly with her life. They’ve been through so much together. But when she’s sent photos of herself that could tear her whole world apart, she starts to wonder. Someone is determined to punish her. But who? And will her friends stand by her, or will the past destroy all of their lives?
From the million-copy-bestselling author of The Secret Mother and The Perfect Family, this absolutely addictive psychological thriller is guaranteed to make you gasp. If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and Big Little Lies this book is for you.
This is a story that flicks between three friends, Tia, Fiona and Kelly. All three women are quite different in personalities. Whilst their lives may not be exactly perfect, I am sure others would be quite envious. It doesn’t take long before their friendship is put to the test.
Kelly was the one that I felt most connected to. I felt a certain amount of empathy for her and her character appealed to me the most. It was good to get to know the women better and to see that the lives of people that we can be envious of, isn’t as gold tinted as we think they are.
The story line had me hooked, just as I would expect from this author. There is always something going on, making sure it gets my full attention. I can never read her books quick enough, waiting for the shocking revelations to hit me. Those moments have me re-reading and taking delight in the excitement it brings.
One Of Us Is Lying is an enthralling story that leaves you gasping for air. It will consume you until you know just who is behind all the strange going on’s. If you haven’t read anything by this author, then you really should. Be warned though as her books are highly addictive and when you start one, you won’t be going anywhere until you get to the last word.
My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
One Of Us Is Lying is available to purchase from Amazon.
