Tell Me No Lies - Lisa Hall || Netgalley Review

From the bestselling author of Between You and Me don’t miss Lisa Hall’s new gripping thriller. Don’t. Trust. Anyone. It was supposed to be a fresh start. A chance to forget the past and embrace the future. But can you ever really start again? Or does the past follow you wherever you go…


REVIEW

I read this along time ago, when i started delving into thrillers. I was drawn to request this, because really - it gives absolutely nothing away with the synopsis. It is so vague that i immediately wanted to know every single thing about this family.

Steph, Mark and their young son Henry have just moved house ready to start again with Steph pregnant again and still on uneven ground after Mark had an affair, it was always meant to be a new chance for the family to start again. 

Of course, it was never going to be that smooth sailing was it? When dead flowers start turning up at the house, things of Stephs are going missing and she feels as if she is slowly loosing the plot after suffereing post natal depression after the birth of Henry she really is worried. With new friends surrounding Steph to help her out, its another case of trust no one.

Lisa Hall has created a wonderfully creepy book that leaves the reader really unsure of what is actually happening, it makes us question what everyones motive is, but most of all it made me suffer with Steph. This book was brilliant, until the End - i felt it never finished - i didnt get my answers! I remember at the time i read it feeling incrediably frustrated, but maybe thats the point - it was nail biting right until the last page.

Rating
3.5/5

Author Info

Lisa loves words, reading and everything there is to love about books. She has dreamed of being a writer since she was a little girl – either that or a librarian - and after years of talking about it, was finally brave enough to put pen to paper (and let people actually read it). Lisa lives in a small village in Kent, surrounded by her towering TBR pile, a rather large brood of children, dogs, chickens and ponies and her long-suffering husband. She is also rather partial to eating cheese and drinking wine. Readers can follow Lisa on Twitter @LisaHallAuthor
