I just finished reading “The Lies I Tell”, by Julie Clarke. Thank you to Net Galley and Sourcebooks Landmark for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is a story of revenge and how nothing is quite as it seems. The story is told from the perspective of the two female lead characters Meg and Kat. Meg is a conwoman who was conned herself as a child with devastating results. This event has shaped her future. Kat is a reporter who was a victim of a crime and holds Meg responsible and she wants revenge on Meg by exposing her cons.
The two women meet and form a fake frienship each knowing what the other is up to and then…Le’ts just say that thats when things get complicated.
I really liked this book. Well written with interesting characters and plots. While there was no WOW moment or huge cliffhangers, it flowed well and was so intriguing that I read it in one day. I liked all the characters and felt like I knew them well.
I love books that have strong female characters that can also be vulnerable at times. I absolutely loved the ending. The last page was AWESOME. Girl Power!!!!
The only little thing was that sometimes the timeline confused me so I had to go to the beginning of the chapter to see where in the timeline it was.
Overall though, an excellent read. This is my first read by this author, and I will be sure to read more.
