Blog Tour And Book Review Of “The Lying Room” By, Nicci French @FrenchNicci @TLCBookTours @WmMorrowBooks

It should have been just a mid-life fling. A guilty indiscretion that Neve Connolly could have weathered. An escape from twenty years of routine marriage to her overworked husband, and from her increasingly distant children. But when Neve pays a morning-after visit to her lover, Saul, and finds him brutally murdered, their pied-à-terre still heady with her perfume, all the lies she has so painstakingly stitched together threaten to unravel.

After scrubbing clean every trace of her existence from Saul’s life—and death—Neve believes she can return to normal, shaken but intact. But she can’t get out of her head the one tormenting question: what was she forgetting?

An investigation into the slaying could provide the answer. It’s brought Detective Chief Inspector Alastair Hitching, and Neve’s worst fears, to her door. But with every new lie, every new misdirection to save herself, Neve descends further into the darkness of her betrayal—and into more danger than she ever imagined. Because Hitching isn’t the only one watching Neve. So is a determined killer who’s about to make the next terrifying move in a deadly affair….

Thank you TLC Book Tours and William Morrow Books for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

So, we know that I read a lot of Thrillers, and we also know that there are a lot of Thrillers right now in the book world, and it takes something big to make them stand out from each other. Did this book succeed at that? I am not sure. However, I did still enjoy it. I felt like maybe some of the characters were lacking development, and that pulls from the story a bit. (in my opinion)

I really did like the twists, and turns, and shocking surprises that this book dished out. I had zero idea that Nicci French was actually two Authors and not just one, so that was a really neat thing to learn. This is also my first read of theirs. I like that the undertone of this book is a bit more mature, the writing style shows that the Authors have a great deal of experience. It wasn’t super unrealistic and full of things just tossed in for added shock value. This was well-plotted and well-executed.

I love the cover and I had fun trying to remake it!
