Lie #1 was to my new friends, about why I moved here.
Lie #2 was to my husband, about who I was before I met him.
,Lie #3 was to myself, that I would get away with what I’ve done.
When I met Seb, it was like everything fell into place.
My daughter Evie finally had a proper dad, and I had found the husband of my dreams
And what Seb didn’t know about my past wouldn’t hurt him.
But lately he’s been acting strangely.
He won’t look me in the eye, he keeps coming home late and the other day at the school fair I saw him arguing with an unknown woman – the same woman I’ve seen hanging around outside our house.
And just as I start wondering whether I’m not the only one with a secret, Evie goes missing…
What was it all about
A mother with secrets hidden. Someone spying on the family. Messages filled with threats.
Anna had everything going for her with a perfect father to her daughter and a perfect husband to her, who seemed to love her more than ever.
With the threatening calls, came the threads that were slowly getting frayed when it felt someone knew her secrets.
How it made me feel
I was excited, no doubt, when I started reading this thriller by author Lesley Sanderson. I enjoyed the feeling of the noose getting tightened around Anna’s neck, the prickling feeling of being watched. The author managed to bring the atmosphere that the story demanded.
Every little lie had the hidden secrets that Anna didn’t want anyone to know, but that made me all the more eager to know.
The play on my senses was great. The aura in the book made me feel I was right there with Anna. The missing child arc pulled me in, making me eager to get to the finish line, to know the secret and the perp. The curiosity bubbling in me made me stick to my kindle the whole afternoon. I liked feeling alive while reading the book.
The plot felt to be familiar and formulaic. It was easy to guess, and with dual POVs, some sections felt repetitive. Intrigue and suspense and twists could have be tightly formatted.
I liked the comfort the book provided as sometimes I needed something familiar to get me through the day. This book provided a couple of hours of suspenseful fun.
Publication Date: October 2021
I downloaded the digital version of the book from an online retail, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
