Book Review: Lie With Me by Sabine Durrant

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this ebook  free of charge,from Mulholland Books, via netgalley for blog review purposes on this blog. No compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it,  all opinions are my own.

And we're going to end up in Greece today!

This may be the last book of the day, which comes out next week,  but it is one that will be talked about for months!

lie with me cover


It starts with a lie. The kind we've all told - to a former acquaintance we can't quite place but still, for some reason, feel the need to impress. The story of our life, embellished for the benefit of the happily married lawyer with the kids and the lovely home.
And the next thing you know, you're having dinner at their house, and accepting an invitation to join them on holiday - swept up in their perfect life, the kind you always dreamed of...
Which turns out to be less than perfect. But by the time you're trapped and sweating in the relentless Greek sun, burning to escape the tension all around you - by the time you start to realise that, however painful the truth might be, it's the lies that cause the real damage...
... well, by then, it could just be too late.

There is a reason that this book is longlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year and shortlisted for the British Book Awards Crime Novel of the Year! It is one you will NOT be able to put down. Which is an anomaly really, as most of the characters really aren't likable. They're not the sort YOU would want to vacation with. And even though Paul started off a little interesting, he soon wasn't. And yet....one can feel the bad thing coming around the corner. Like an old Hitchcock film, or a motor accident about to happen. you keep turning the page to see the WHY, even if you have a hint what is coming, that keeps you reading til the end of the book.It may not be the book of the year, but everyone will be talking about the ending!
