LIES SHE TOLD by Cate Holahan
I didn't know what to expect heading into this book. LIES SHE TOLD is one helluva a psychological thriller. It's equal parts suspense and mystery. From the first page, the author reels you in tight and never lets you go. The cover caught my eye as I browsed the library shelves. It just called to me, you know what I'm saying?
What we have here is a great female protagonist who has been through a lot and is currently going through a lot. She manages here situation with style and grace. She is an author and a wife who is struggling to conceive. While all of this is going on, she is trying to write the next book in her series.
Her world starts unraveling quickly around her. She struggles to keep it all together. The past and present soon collide, making for one epic conclusion.
I didn't see any of it coming. This is a smart read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I read this one in one gulp. I like the way the story was told. Some parts of the book felt clunky. I dig the style and prose. The characters have depth. The character building was the best part. This story has the twists and turns, too. That ending was something else. I'm still thinking about it.
