Ruth Ware writes books that hook you at the first page and even when you think you have it figured out there is a twist that throws you off. Her latest novel , The Lying Game, attempts to do the same.
When do lies become the truth? For 17 years school friends Isa, Fatima, and Thea have been covering up a major lie to protect their friend Kate but now things are starting to unravel. A body has been discovered and Kate begs them to come. But is Kate telling them the truth and are their memories true or more lies? A story of family, friendship, loyalty, and finding the truth hidden in years of lies.
While this is an intriguing story with much going for it I was not as enthralled as I was with her first 2 book (In A Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10). Don’t get me wrong, it is an enjoyable book and I recommend it, I just prefer her earlier books more.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.
