Book Review: The Lie

The Lie


BOOK: The Lie

AUTHOR: C.L. Taylor



I actually read this book a few years ago, but for some reason the review never posted. So I am redoing it now. 


I love mystery thrillers normally. But this book kind of confused me. The timelines jumped back and forth, the plot was far reaching, and the characters seemed completely out of their mind. That being said, it is a fairly easy read, it just left me feeling like it wasn’t as grounded as it could be. I can’t really say much more than that about it without giving more away.


Short Synopsis (from Goodreads):

I know your name's not really Jane Hughes...


Jane Hughes has a loving partner, a job in an animal sanctuary and a tiny cottage in rural Wales. She's happier than she's ever been but her life is a lie. Jane Hughes does not really exist.


Five years earlier Jane and her then best friends went on holiday but what should have been the trip of a lifetime rapidly descended into a nightmare that claimed the lives of two of the women.


Jane has tried to put her past behind her but someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won't stop until they've destroyed Jane and everything she loves.

I received this book for review purposes from NetGalley. ⠀
