She Who Lies by Alex Kane @HeraBooks @AlexKaneWriter

Book Description:

Blood is thicker than water, the family bond stronger than any other.

think it’s all forgotten.

But I don’t forget.

The Laird-Shaw family live a life most only dream about. Self-made millionaires Gavin Shaw and Stevie Laird built their business from humble roots to global turnover, Stevie’s wife – and Gavin’s sister – Eva is never out of the style pages, while daughter Carla has used her huge following as an Instagram influencer to shine a spotlight on mental health issues.

But behind the glamour lies a web of lies; hidden secrets so explosive that they would bring this family dynasty crashing down. But someone out there knows the truth…and now they’re stepping out of the shadows to reveal the dark heart of the Laird-Shaw family. Because when the truth comes to light, there’s nowhere to hide…and all the money in the world can’t save this family from themselves.

A gripping psychological thriller that will hook you from page one – the perfect read for fans of C.L. Taylor, T.M. Logan and Adele Parks.

My Thoughts:

Alex Kane is an author who just goes from strength to strength.

If you love stories full of deceit, lies, twists and turns a plenty, well look no further than She Who Lies. The Laird-Shaw’s on the surface have it all. Love, health, wealth, they are the perfect picture of the complete family package that have done well for themselves. They are bound to have people that are envious about them living the good life.

On the surface, it looks like they have another troll on their hands but this is one that isn’t going away. The cracks within this family start showing making the reader wonder just what this family have to hide and whether the cracks will be able to be repaired or blown apart.

Flicking between past and present and key characters, we start to discover just what this family is covering up. It gives food for thought about the choices we make and just how strong a family bond can be.

She Who Lies had me hooked from the very first page. I couldn’t devour the pages quickly enough whilst the Laird-Shaw family’s world starts to fall apart. Just when you think you know everything, the author throws another curve ball that sent me reeling. An intense page turner of a read.

My thanks to Hera Books and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

She Who Lies is available to purchase from Amazon.
