The Lies I Tell
The Lies I Tell | Julie Clark
From the instant New York Times bestselling author of THE LAST FLIGHT She's back. Meg Williams. Maggie Littleton. Melody Wilde. Different names for the same person, depending on the town, depending on the job. She's a con artist who erases herself to become whoever you need her to be--a college student. A life coach. A real estate agent. Nothing about her is real. She slides alongside you and tells you exactly what you need to hear, and by the time she's done, you've likely lost everything. Kat Roberts has been waiting ten years for the woman who upended her life to return. And now that she has, Kat is determined to be the one to expose her. But as the two women grow closer, Kat's long-held assumptions begin to crumble, leaving Kat to wonder who Meg's true target is. The Lies I Tell is a twisted domestic thriller that dives deep into the psyches and motivations of two women and their unwavering quest to seek justice for the past and rewrite the future.

I think I‘m in the minority here, but I was really disappointed by this. It did not read like a thriller at all, and was incredibly dull. It IS a revenge story, but lacking on twists and turns. I couldn‘t care less about the details of a real estate shell game/dupe, and I found Kay‘s motive for revenge on Meg flimsy and lacking in logical sense. Ultimately, I just didn‘t really care about the characters and the dumb choices they made. 😂 2⭐️

I quite enjoyed this one! A quick paced thriller about a con artist and the reporter investigating her. If I didn‘t have so much going on right now I probably could have finished in a sitting or two. #bookspin for September

I loved The Last Flight, so I was super excited for this, but it was a disappointment. The writing is good and I like the story, but there are just too many holes. The two main characters blend together and one major plot point is just left dangling. What a bummer.

This was a good read! You really felt for both Meg and Kat as they got closer to one another. It was entertaining to see their agendas unfold as Kat tried to keep tabs on Meg & as Meg tries to keep Kat at a distance, knowing she‘s a reporter. Kat‘s boyfriend being a recovering gambling addict adds for an interesting layer. I was pleased with the ending.

Another irresistible page turner from Julie Clark! I knocked out the first 200 pages in one day as I could not put this down. While it didn't have as many twists and turns as I was expecting, this story of two women, one a con artist and the other a reporter, definitely kept me entertained and eager to see how this tale of righteous vengeance played out.

“Reliable narration doesn‘t exist”

Definitely the kind of book that can be read through in a day. Great pacing. Dual storylines, a con artist seeking revenge & a woman who was collateral damage in one of her previous cons. A few things seem preposterous. With all the “Two women together can do anything” rhetoric, there‘s an undercurrent of internalized misogyny, i loved the con & the twists but I question some of the execution:
Spoilers below:

5feet.of.fury You‘re telling me this guy wouldn‘t remember that the kid who he stole the house he‘s living in from and his realtor had the same name? 4mo
5feet.of.fury Kat blaming Meg? Kat not wanting to write the book because men wouldn‘t understand it? As if there‘s no money in writing books for women 🙄 I‘m sure that was the author making a dig about her publisher or something, but man was Kat unlikable. 4mo

📣Fantastic Narration😍
I loved this…I was completely engaged throughout the entire book. The characters were flawed but relatable. I couldn‘t stop listening, not until I knew who was lying, and who was telling the truth. And the ending…was actually quite perfect. I highly recommend this to everyone…but especially to Jane Doe fans. Like that book, it has just the right amount of right to make the wrong feel totally justified.

Megabooks Going to see if my library has this! 5mo
AUDIOBOOKINGWITHLEAH @Megabooks They probably don't...I kind of covered it up...but it does have an "only on Audible" sash on it. It was totally worth the credit, though. 5mo

“A good story can be seductive. Most people are inclined to believe one rather than examine the evidence piling up in front of them. But what they don‘t know is that no one is a reliable narrator. Reliable narrators don‘t exist.”

I love a good cat and mouse story, and a lovable con artist. The Lies I Tell delivers! I flew through this plot driven novel in 2 sittings & could hardly put it down! One of my most entertaining reads of the year.

Been MIA for awhile. I figured with school being out, I‘d be able to read more. But then work has gotten in the way. And now Covid. Truly thought I could avoid it forever, but who was I fooling? I couldn‘t read yesterday because the headache felt like death. Today isn‘t as bad so I‘m reading while I can. I‘m enjoying Meg‘s POV/chapters.

Karisa I couldn‘t read while I had it either. Brain was too tired. Ended up binge watching Downtown Abbey. 😊 Hope you‘re feeling better soon! 💗 5mo

If I‘m being honest this books is about a 3.5/5 for me as a reader. I enjoyed the different voices through the book as we switched between Kat and Meg; however, the story had a slow start. I felt like I wasn‘t truly pulled in until about page 150-160 which leaves the last 126 pages to be a fun whirlwind but I would‘ve loved to have that pacing occur sooner.
