It sometimes feels impossible to keep anything hidden in a place like Great Rock. But now they have found that poor girl down on the beach, I realize just how many secrets we’ve been keeping all along.
Evvy has lived on the island of Great Rock all her life. Every year, after the holidaymakers have departed, storms begin to roll in off the Atlantic and the island returns to the small group of locals who, like her, have decided to make it their home.
When a body is found on the snow-covered beach it sends shockwaves through this tight-knit community and rattles Evvy to her core.
The dead woman worked on the island the previous summer and it seems strange she would have been visiting so out of season. What drew her back and who was she meeting? When Evvy learns that her partner,Ian, was the last person to see her alive, the shadow of the murder falls far too close to home.
As the icy weather closes in, the island is cut off from the mainland, and Ian is taken into custody. Rumours about what is really going on in Great Rock reach fever pitch, as Evvy works to prove Ian’s innocence before it’s too late.
But there are things about the people she loves that Evvy doesn’t know or has chosen not to see. The truth might not save the life she has worked so hard to build for herself. Instead, it might tear it apart…
A tense and atmospheric emotional drama that will keep you guessing. Perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty, Diane Chamberlain and Sally Hepworth.
I absolutely loved this book. It really got under my skin and is one that will always stay with me. It is captivating, compelling, powerful and so heartbreaking. It was one that I could not tear myself away from, which resulted in my reading it in one sitting and is one that gave me a massive book hangover when I was done!
Emily has crafted a tale that grabbed my attention right from the outset. I was lost in its pages as I found myself also a member of the tight-knit community on the Island of Great Rock, watching from the sidelines as the drama all unfolded. I thought the book was very well structured as the story is told from the points of view from three of the characters and everything flowed as it should in the lead up to its emotional outcome that I did not see coming.
The characters have been perfectly created and apart from one, I found myself able to resonate with each in some way. They have been written so well and each brings to the table their own set of secrets that have been well hidden, but now threaten to rise to the surface. The setting of Great Rock is also like a character in itself and with its wintery and stormy weather sets the atmospheric tone brilliantly.
This is the first book that I have read from Emily Cavanagh and I need more! I immediately connected with her writing and I think that she is such a gifted storyteller. She has really put her heart and soul into this book, which shows all the way through from start to end and I didn’t realise how much the story and its outcome effected me, until the end as I felt the tears streaming down my face.
Everybody Lies is a stunning piece of work that is perfect in every way. It has been beautifully written and it is definitely up there with one of the best books that I have read this year. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. It was my absolute pleasure to read and review Everybody Lies which I can not recommend highly enough.
