On my way to New York and the Book Expo!!

Lying In Wait by Liz Nugent


Was his life and his family made of secrets?  That is what it seemed like to Laurence.

Laurence found out that his father had killed someone because she was blackmailing him.  What his parents did with the body and the fact that Andrew killed a woman was a huge secret his father had to keep. 
This secret took its toll on Andrew and Laurence.

His mother actually was not fazed by it perhaps because of a deep, dark secret from her childhood that neither Laurence or Andrew knew about and which was another secret that didn't bother Lydia. 

Their home and this totally dysfunctional family was a house of secrets and lies. 

And the lies continued as Lydia thought of ways to hide what happened and how to protect herself.  Lydia was a very cunning woman who made sure everything benefited her.

LYING IN WAIT had a sinister tone from the start, and it continued to grow in intensity and suspense with a chilling ending.

Ms. Nugent has written an engaging, can-this-really-be happening, pull-you-in psychological thriller.


If you enjoy a book that has you biting your nails and wondering what other evil deeds Lydia is planning, LYING IN WAIT will be for you.  5/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by NetGalley and Gallery/Scout Press.
