Book Review Of “Let Me Lie” By Clare Mackintosh @Berkleypub @claremackint0sh
In the newest psychological thriller from the New York Timesbestselling author of I Let You Go and I See You, Clare Mackintosh brings us a gripping story about how those who love us never really leave us…
Two years ago, Tom and Caroline Johnson committed suicide, one seemingly unable to live without the other. Their adult daughter, Anna, is struggling to come to terms with her parents’ deaths, unable to comprehend why they chose to end their lives. Now with a young baby herself, she feels her mother’s presence keenly and is determined to find out what really happened to her parents. But as Anna digs up the past, someone is trying to stop her. She soon learns that nothing is as it seemed. (Photo and Synopsis from Goodreads)
Thank you to Berkley Pub and Netgalley for this ARC, in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 4 out of 5 Stars.
I have gotten to review every one of Clare Mackintosh’s books, courtesy of Netgalley and Berkley. At the end of this review I will rank them in order of my favorite. I was excited when I saw this book pop up on Berkley’s Instagram page, I instantly went to Netgalley to request it.
I liked this book, I thought it was gripping from the start, and it stayed steadily good. There wasn’t really any lagging moments, so it was easy to just read though and enjoy the story as it progressed. I sort of went in to this book blind, because being written by Clare Mackintosh was good enough for me, I didn’t need to read the synopsis.
I loved the alternating chapters, and I though the way there were done was pretty genius. You knew when they were Anna, and you knew when they were another person (don’t want to spoil who, for those who haven’t read it yet) and then there are chapters written by mystery people. I thought who I knew who they were, but I was actually pleasantly surprised.
The one great thing Clare Mackintosh has going for her, is her element of surprise, and they way she can drop a plot twist. It’s always at the right time too. Just when you think everything is out in the open, Surprise, there’s more! It’s safe to say I enjoy her writing style, and I adore her books. This one was no exception to that. I believe that Clare has a long future ahead of her in the writing world, and I think spending so many years working in a police department is absolutely beneficial to her story telling.
