Tia never harmed anyone. So why does someone want to destroy her?
Tia is walking home with her children, along the lakeside of their quiet, safe town, when she realises something is wrong with her five-year-old daughter, Rosie. She seems troubled, not at all her usual happy self.
But when Tia finally coaxes Rosie to open up, she wishes she hadn’t. Because her sweet daughter asks a question Tia never thought she’d hear.
‘Why did you kill someone?’
Tia knows how rumours spread around her small town. She just can’t understand who would have shared such a horrible story. Or why.
It can’t have anything to do with what happened. Only her two best friends really remember that…
Tia thought she could trust Fiona and Kelly with her life. They’ve been through so much together. But when she’s sent photos of herself that could tear her whole world apart, she starts to wonder. Someone is determined to punish her. But who? And will her friends stand by her, or will the past destroy all of their lives?
From the million-copy-bestselling author of The Secret Mother and The Perfect Family, this absolutely addictive psychological thriller is guaranteed to make you gasp. If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and Big Little Lies this book is for you.
It is always a great day when Bookouture announces a new Shalini Boland book and it is even better when the advanced reader copies are sent through. It is like Christmas Day, receiving the best present ever! So how does One Of Us Is Lying stack up? Read on to find out…
Shalini has crafted a thrilling plot with one of the most chilling lines ever uttered by a five-year child, spoken to their mother that I have ever read! “Why did you kill someone”! It is goosebump worthy and throws the story and its characters into total chaos as only Shalini can masterfully do. There is enough in the blurb for me not to discuss anymore on the plot. As always it is best going into a book of Shalini’s with what has been given.
The characters of Tia, Kelly and Fiona have been very well developed and each is brought to life through the pages beautifully. One of Shalini’s strengths is her characters and she has done such an outstanding job with these ladies. They are believable and I could completely resonate with each of them.
Shalini never disappoints and delivers to her readers each and every time a fantastic piece of work. I have never reviewed a book from Shalini that was not 5 stars! She draws you into her wicked web and holds you captive as you race through the pages to endings that are always done in spectacular fashion and One Of Us Is Lying is no different.
One Of Us Is Lying is a fast-paced psychological thriller with a strong plot, great characterisation, full of suspense, twists and turns, with writing that is second to none and it is a contender to be part of my best books for 2020! It was an absolute pleasure to read and review One Of Us Is Lying which I highly recommend.
