Adele Parks is back for another thrilling tale (pun intended – sorry, not sorry) in Lies, Lies, Lies. This is a novel that will send chills down your spine, I promise!

From all appearances, Daisy’s life is pretty perfect. She has the man of her dreams, and together they just had their first child. But appearances can be deceiving, and Daisy is slowly coming to terms with the life she has.

That is – she was slowly coming to terms with it. Then something happened that wrenched control away and altered her family – permanently.

“Do we still live in a world where being polite keeps order or does it leave you vulnerable?”

So, I would hope that the title makes it obvious, but Lies, Lies, Lies is a novel full to the brim of secrets, deception, and revelations. Not all of them are good, naturally. It’s a thrilling and compelling tale, carried forward nicely thanks to Adele Parks’ writing style.

Though admittedly, this was not my favorite thriller. It wasn’t bad. It had a solid foundation, interesting plot points – the works. There was just something about it that kept me at arms’ distance, and ultimately that impacted my reading experience.

One thing I did enjoy about this novel is that it did showcase many harsh realities that come with life: addiction, depression, fertility issues, and more. However, I just couldn’t get over one scene in particular (spoiler warning: that poor kitten!).

Thanks to MIRA and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
