The Lies We Told
The Lies We Told | Camilla Way
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.

TBR search for one book and you find another that‘s just right. The author has a backlist that I will now have to explore. Lies are never a good idea. In this mystery/thriller, they have devastating consequences. Seesawing between past and present, first person and third person, loaded with unreliable characters, twists and turns, unknown relationships, murder(?), and an open ended ending, it is a fast and thoroughly enjoyable read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was what a good tale of an evil child should be, surprising and twisted. It kept me engaged the whole way through.

I enjoyed this one. I really liked how the story came together and how everyone connected. I didn‘t like how the beginning seemed to be completely different stories from the different times until they started to connect. I‘m glad I didn‘t give up on the book because of the disconnect in the beginning.

Here is my #BookSpin list! I'm late, I know. I only just found out about it today. Sounds exciting @thearomaofbooks! Hopefully, I haven't missed too much. 😁

I went in numerical order, starting with A Princess in Theory going down.

My BookSpin is The Lies We Told, and my Double Book Spin is The Girl with the Louding Voice.

Must read thriller! I loved it from the start to the end. There was a few twist I predicted, but the delivery was great. Definitely recommend if your in a mood for a sociopathic thriller.

If you‘d asked me a week ago what books I thought I‘d start the month out with, I wouldn‘t have named these. This is why I don‘t commit to TBRs! My mind is constantly changing! I wanted to dig into Playing Dead. I‘ve put it off for too long! And I‘ve been dying to get into The Lies We Told after reading the creepy opener. And Untamed... Well, I read the beginning when I got it & I didn‘t really want to put it down so here we are.

There were several titles that I wanted but couldn‘t get due to Covid-related measures that BOTM has put in place. But I did grab one add on.

Still in my Covid-related reading slump anyway so this will do.

I finished my #BookSpin #TripleSpin with my little reading buddy. This was a really good thriller. There were an insane amount of twists and turns but they wrapped up pretty nicely. It starts when Clara's boyfriend goes missing and we also get flashbacks from a woman whose daughter is showing early signs of being a sociopath 💜

As predicted, spending the day curled up with this was perfect. It‘s a psychological suspense novel with parallel plot lines that asks the question how many secrets can you hold before people and relationships break. It was a quick, captivating read. #wintergames #tbrread #jingleballers @FantasyChick @StayCurious @Clwojick

My husband pulled this out of my TBR bookshelf and wrapped it up as my Jolabokaflod book this year. In some ways, this was a perfect book--it was entertaining and kept me going to the point that I read the whole thing on Christmas day. Yet, I still felt it didn't quite rise to the level I expected. The plot seemed a little too ambitious and I never felt that we got to know the people we needed to know.

A fun, quick, twisty read. Nothing earth shattering but I enjoyed the overall story and parts of it definitely had me on the edge of my seat. I did figure out some of the smaller twists but not all of twists, especially not the major ones. Would recommend for an easy thriller.

This was okay. It seemed to put forth plot twist after plot twist for their own sake instead of a cohesive story with any basic verisimilitude. I‘d compare it to American Idol—big on vocal pyrotechnics & most people love that 🐂 but I got better ways to spent my Sundays.

(Yes, I do have a dog named Aiken but he came with that name.)

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 was actually a good book. The first book I read by Diane Chamberlain was only so-so (The Midwifes Secret) but this book caught my attention from chapter one. It was about two sisters and the secrets they kept from each other only to be revealed after Maya the baby sister was feared dead in a plane crash only to be actually alive stuck on a deserted island by people whom she doesn‘t know if she can trust

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!
