Book Review: Lie To Me

They built a life on lies

Sutton and Ethan Montclair’s idyllic life is not as it appears. The couple seems made for each other, but the truth is ugly. Consumed by professional and personal betrayals and financial woes, the two both love and hate each other. As tensions mount, Sutton disappears, leaving behind a note saying not to look for her.

Ethan finds himself the target of vicious gossip as friends, family and the media speculate on what really happened to Sutton Montclair. As the police investigate, the lies the couple have been spinning for years quickly unravel. Is Ethan a killer? Is he being set up? Did Sutton hate him enough to kill the child she never wanted and then herself? The path to the answers is full of twists that will leave the reader breathless.

LIE TO ME started out as a rather straight forward well written murder mystery but about half way through the book, it turned into so much more.  Then it became one of best written crime dramas I have ever had the pleasure of reading.

The pacing is tight and the characters are magnetic even when you are not sure whether they are the good guys or the villains.  All the clues fall quite nicely into place.  Perhaps a bit too nicely.  It sends up having so many false starts and twists that I needed a seat belt for my own safety.  I have to warn my readers to not start this book late at night as this is a story that demands to be read in one sitting.

I highly recommend LIE TO ME to any of my readers who enjoy suspense and crime dramas.  This is one of the best!  There is some sex and violence but nothing too explicit.  . 

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
