The Lies We Told | Camilla Way
109 posts | 78 read | 4 reading | 104 to read
The highly acclaimed author of Watching Edie returns with a new novel of dark psychological suspense that explores how those closest to us have the most to hide... When Clara's boyfriend, Luke, disappears, everyone believes that he's left her, but Clara thinks she knows the truth. Recent evidence suggests that Luke had a stalker, and Clara worries that he's been kidnapped. Then Luke's older sister, Emma, who vanished twenty years ago, suddenly reappears. Emma wants to help Clara with her search for Luke, but she refuses to talk about what happened--even though it nearly destroyed her family when she vanished. And the deeper Clara digs into Luke's mysterious disappearance, the more convinced she is that the two incidents are connected.

Ehhh. The book was very slooooow paced. It was suspenseful and it kept you wanting to find out what happened and what the true story was but it just didnt do it for me. The ending was full of twists and turns but still everything felt predictable. Wouldnt recommend.

Great engrossing read. Give yourself some time because the moment you pick this up you'll want to read in one sitting. Characters may be not so likable but the plot is so good and the mystery element will keep you guessing and there's plenty of surprises along the way.

This book had so many surprises inside! This book starts out in the 1980s but the very next chapter is set in 2017 and it keeps going back and forth between every chapter. At first the 2 stories seem unrelated but slowly pieces start to fit together and you make connections. Psychological thrillers have been my most enjoyable reads lately and this one sits towards the top of my favorites!

Luke‘s sister, Emily, disappeared years ago and now Luke himself has disappeared. This is a good, dark, twisty thriller with a wicked ending. It had me saying, “wait, what?” at least once and I didn‘t figure it out early. I would definitely read this author again. #botm

I am trying to clear my #unreadbotmbooks from my tbr. This is a short 300 pages so should be a quick forgettable thriller. I don‘t have very high hopes for this one.

I tore through this book. The mental illness was represented so realistically there was nothing to critique. The ending was perfectly realistic as well; it wasn‘t too happy which is my style! I appreciated this story.

An unputdownable pych thriller with multiple twists following two narrators and time periods. I loved its clever storyline and found it intriguing trying to figure out the puzzle pieces. And that Hannah was so deeply demented she gave me the chills. I highly recommend this #botm club pick - chalked full of disturbing secrets and lies it‘ll sure keep you guessing, it did me! 👍🏻 4.5 stars

Clara's boyfriend Luke goes missing one night. When Clara realizes he hasn't come home, she goes looking for him, trying to figure out what happened. As she digs, she gets drawn deeper and deeper into numerous mysteries, including what happened to Luke's sister Emily who disappeared twenty years before. This is a twisty, turny thriller that kept me reading late into the night. #TheLiesWeTold #CamillaWay #NetGalley

While I had a hard getting into this book, I did end up liking it by the end. When is the sequal due to come out?

OriginalCyn620 Sorry you didn‘t like it more! Not sure if there will be a second book, but I thought the ending was definitely set up for one, should the author decide to go that route. 7mo
cwarnier Don't feel bad, not every book is everyone's cup of tea. It is good for me to read things that are not norm for me. With that said, I would totally read a sequal. 7mo

I did enjoy this book, however I had higher hopes for the ending. It lacked structure for me. I found myself identifying with Clara the more I learned about her as a character. I felt her emotions on every page... almost like I'd been there before personally.
Moral of the story: Be careful who you trust - no matter who they are.

Clara‘s boyfriend, Luke, goes missing. There are many layers to get to the bottom of everything in this one. It started out slow for me but then it is twist after twist and a straight up moment when I said “Holy Sh*t” out loud while reading. I can‘t say I was really rooting for any of the characters but getting to the bottom of the mystery was more than enough to keep me engaged throughout.

Average thriller. Pretty insane and reasonably creepy ‘bad‘ guy (girl). Most of the characters were fairly unlikeable; the main character wasn‘t particularly objectionable but she wasn‘t very interesting or sympathetically written, either. A few twists, mostly uninteresting secrets...but fast-paced enough to not pan it all-together.

This was my #BOTM pick for October. Overall, it was an engaging book that I enjoyed reading. It was actually pretty perfect for me right now, as I am having trouble reading anything too heavy. This one kept me interested and turning pages. It was fun to try and figure out the mystery as I read.

Holy smokes! The Lies We Told is a rollercoaster of a ride with so many twists and turns. I devoured the book in one day. All you need to know is that Clara‘s boyfriend, Luke, goes missing. Sorry for being brief, but the less you know the better the book will be.

I read an e #arc of it, but it was good enough to own so I ordered a physical copy for my bookshelf! I highly recommend #thelieswetold! #70kgiveaway
