Book Review Of “Every Last Lie” By Mary Kubica
Clara Solberg’s world shatters when her husband and their four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. The crash is ruled an accident…until the coming days, when Maisie starts having night terrors that make Clara question what really happened on that fateful afternoon.
Tormented by grief and her obsession that Nick’s death was far more than just an accident, Clara is plunged into a desperate hunt for the truth. Who would have wanted Nick dead? And, more important, why? Clara will stop at nothing to find out—and the truth is only the beginning of this twisted tale of secrets and deceit. (from Amazon)
This story is told by present day Clara, and prior to the accident Nick. I think the Author really pulled that off quite well. I did find myself getting increasingly excited when it came to Nicks chapters. His side was so fascinating, that I would have loved more from his side.
I however could not relate to Clara, I felt like she let her obsession over Nick, take precedence over her living children, and that kind of infuriated me. I’m sure that was intentionally written that way, to get readers to react, however, I found myself angry at Clara through every one of her chapters.
I may have missed it, as I was reading the final few chapters, and figuring out how this was all going to end, but I feel like a few things were left open, and I was left with a few questions.
This was my first time reading anything by Mary Kubica. I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars. Solely because I wished a few smaller details would have been wrapped up in the end, as they were pretty prominent issues throughout the story. That being said, I still really enjoyed this book, and will continue to read Mary Kubica books!
