I post book reviews as often as possible but at least once a week every Wednesday! I hope they help you to find some new books that you'll love as much as I did!
Today is my stop on the blog tour for Between the Lies by Michelle Adams. Thanks so much to Anne for organising the tour.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the stops!
The truth is hiding between the lies.
A page-turning psychological thriller with twists that keep the reader guessing until last page, this addictive read will be loved by fans of Shari Lapena's A STRANGER IN THE HOUSE and Liz Lawler's DON'T WAKE UP.
What would you do if you woke up and didn't know who you were?
Chloe Daniels regains consciousness in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. She doesn't recognise the strangers who call themselves family. She can't even remember her own name.
What if your past remained a mystery?
As she slowly recovers, her parents and sister begin to share details of her life.
The successful career. The seaside home. The near-fatal car crash.
But Chloe senses they're keeping dark secrets - and her determination to uncover the truth will have devastating consequences.
What if the people you should be able trust are lying to you?
After reading and loving My Sister last year (and choosing it as one of my books of the year) I was absolutely delighted to be invited to take part in the blog tour for Between the Lies and I couldn't say yes quickly enough! I'm so glad I did say yes, because this is another brilliant book from Michelle Adams.
Chloe is a character who is easy to like and I felt as though I went on her quest for the truth with her. Adams is an expert at making the reader feel part of the journey and I thought that the way I experienced the flashbacks and memories starting to come back alongside Chloe worked really well. I really felt her confusion and desperation to know the truth about her old life just as much as she did.
It's emotional at times and the complicated relationships Chloe has with others are really well developed and put across, another thing Adams does brilliantly.
The story is packed with secrets and lies at every turn and you end up wondering whether anyone is telling the truth at all! I loved the addition of the narrative from an unnamed person because it added a lot of intrigue for me.
I did guess who had been involved in the crash about 2/3 in, but this didn't have a negative effect on the book for me because I enjoyed reading on to see if I was right just as much.
Overall, I'm giving Between the Lies 4 out of 5. It's intriguing, engaging and packed with secrets.
