Today, I'll be discussing October BOTM pick, The Lies We Told.
The Lies We Told by Camilla Way
A daughter: Beth has always known there was something strange about her daughter, Hannah. The lack of emotion, the disturbing behavior, the apparent delight in hurting others... Sometimes Beth is scared of her and what she could be capable of.
A son: Luke comes from the perfect family, with the perfect parents. But one day, he disappears without a trace, and his girlfriend, Clara, is desperate to discover what has happened to him.
A life built on lies: As Clara digs into the past, she realizes that no family is truly perfect, and uncovers a link between Luke's long-lost sister and a strange girl named Hannah. Now Luke's life is in danger because of the lies once told and the secrets once kept. Can Clara find him before it's too late?
I had a blast reading this twisted thriller with @thrilltalkbookblog. The Lies We Told is, without a doubt, an ideal, spooky October mystery.
Camilla Way's latest novel, The Lies We Told, features a compelling writing style, an immensely gripping storyline, and an incredible cast.
Way's diction is remarkable and detailed but also easy to follow. She gives just enough specifics to rouse interest in the audience without making readers feel overwhelmed.
The plot of this thriller is also quite fascinating. The author introduces the audience to the lives of two families which are later brilliantly connected. By introducing these families separately, readers become engrossed by every single character only to be awe-struck once their long-awaited connection is finally revealed. This perfectly developed plot works to keep readers engaged and enthralled until the very last page.
Besides the amazing writing and storyline, Way also creates an unforgettable cast of characters—all of which are one-of-a-kind. By the end of this novel, readers will come to learn that no one is as innocent as they appear.
