Book Review Of “The Lies We Told” By Camilla Way @BerkleyPub @CamillaLWay
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.
Thank you Berkley Pub and Netgalley for gifting me a copy of this book, in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 Stars.
Hands down one of my favorite psychological thrillers I’ve read this year. I love the dark, disturbing nature of this book. There were so many twists and turns I had no clue which direction it was heading, I couldn’t predict anything, and was left completely flabbergasted during several points, whilst reading it.
I loved the two timelines, I think they were executed well, and were very captivating. I had been in a Thriller rut lately, and had started reading more YA, but this book sunk its dramatic, crazy little claw’s in, and would not let me go.
I did not expect to love this book so much, I had seen so many other Bookstagrammers and Bloggers love this book, so I had high expectations, and they were exceeded. I am so excited for anything else that Camilla Way will write, because I have a feeling, I am a fan for life!
This book is out Oct. 9th. I will include some helpful links below.
