Everyone liked her - it was a shock to the small town of Grotto.
Her troubled sister, Nola, and best friend, Maggie, found her.
There were quite a few suspects, but not enough evidence so the case was dropped.
The book opens to a grizzly scene of Eve running out of a cave, but not being able to escape.
Twenty-five years later, new evidence is found. Maggie is now a police officer and takes over the case. What will she find?
We go back and forth from 1995 to 2020 and see Eve's life as a teenager and then in 2020 we see the investigation taking place again with we the readers trying to guess who the killer is.
You will say it's her, no it can't be, it has to be him, no it might be that person. You will go back and forth trying to figure it out, and I bet you will guess incorrectly unless you are a super sleuth.
THIS IS HOW I LIED is very engaging, tense, and so good you won't want to put the book down.
Suspense and thriller fans will not be disappointed.
Ms. Gudenkauf will keep you on the edge of your seat and wondering, wondering, wondering.
A twisty, fantastic, unpredictable tale with characters that lived with secrets and lies and that made me nervous at what they were doing.
Do not miss it. You will be on the edge of your seat by the end. 5/5
This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
