About this deal

After locking Joely in a tower to die and acting all menacing toward Marianne AND Holly, Freda is somehow forgiven as though she was just having a bit of a moment. The story begins with Joely, a former journalist who is dealing with the fact that her husband has moved in with her best friend, Martha the meat-eating man stealer. My second Susan Lewis read of the year and whilst there were large sections of the book that held my attention, on the whole it didn't quite hook me like Home Truths had done. Beautifully written, I love the way Susan Lewis explores her characters emotions, bringing them to life.

Joely is sure she can uncover the truth but as the story unravels, she is spun deeper and deeper into a world of secret and lies. Although most cases of sexual interest in any children below the age of consent is often labelled as pedophilia.

As this is a psychological thriller type book this review may contain accidental spoilers, you have been warned!

Breathlessly intriguing from the first page to the last, My Lies, Your Lies is a gripping novel that intertwines the tumultuous past of one mysterious woman to the present of another with a harrowing, unexpected twist. If you like books with a larger-than-life character and enjoy unraveling family intrigue and drama, then I suggest you consider My Lies, Your Lies. I think you’ll enjoy 'My Lies, Your Lies' if you can suspend disbelief and go in expecting this as more of a “suspense for part one and then it turns into a family drama for part two” book! Peppered throughout are the memoir entries written in the first person narrative, leaving the reader pondering who she may well be.The memoir sections are written like amateur porn and I kept thinking THIS IS ABOUT A 15YR OLD GIRL. I recently read a novel about a schoolgirl and teacher having a sexual relationship which I found to be a really well-written novel so while I was keen to read this particular book I tried to leave some space between so I didn't compare. A family drama full of unexpected twists, with a huge amount of optimism and warning that there are two sides to every story.
