The Lies You Told by Harriet Tyce
About The Book
Can you tell the truth from the lies?
Sadie loves her daughter and will do anything to keep her safe.
She can’t tell her why they had to leave home so quickly – or why Robin’s father won’t be coming with them to London.
She can’t tell her why she hates being back in her dead mother’s house, with its ivy-covered walls and its poisonous memories.
And she can’t tell her the truth about the school Robin’s set to start at – a school that doesn’t welcome newcomers.
Sadie just wants to get their lives back on track.
But even lies with the best intentions can have deadly consequences…
When life crumbles around your feet, the only way to recover is to return home, even if you promise to never come back again. What you don’t expect is that your life will be much worse than the one you left behind…
This is the story of Sadie Roper and her daughter who decided to return from US after a long time living there; Sadie needs to reconstruct her life at her mother’s house, with all the hunting memories falling from the walls. As you can imagine life will not be easy, a “new” house, a new school and some new people who will start appearing in their life. They are both strong and hopefully they will survive everything that future will prepare for them… or not? The school will be full of bullies, the students and the mothers, and the first case that Sadie works again will seem too easy.
This is a story with multiple layers; the personal story of Sadie and her past, the ending of her marriage, the mothers at the “posh” school, the case… I can’t say that any of them wasn’t interesting, they all had their dark side and keep the reader wanting to know more. I discovered the truth of the story early on the book, but there were so many secrets hidden on the story that it didn’t matter, it was only one secret in a sea full of lies!
If you are looking for a gripping and addictive read, this is be your delight; well written and with complex story you’ll not be able to put it down.
