The Lies We Told by Camilla Way

Wishing for something and getting something unexpected happened to Beth and Doug.  They wished for a baby, and when she finally arrived, she was a frightening, evil child.

Wishing for a wonderful relationship was what Clara hoped for and thought that's what she had until Luke disappeared and she found out unpleasant things about him.

THE LIES WE TOLD has two stories which somehow are connected, but how they are connected is cleverly woven and a well-kept a secret.

Hannah, the evil child, was a very frightening story line.  The disappearance of Luke was not pleasant, but didn't seem as bad.  Hannah was the tie between both story lines, though.

THE LIES WE TOLD is so good you won't want to stop reading.  The plot is brilliant and tense in both stories and increases with each turn of the page and with each secret  and lie revealed.

The only way you can experience this amazing thriller is to read it yourself.  It is very twisted and very good, and you will be thrown off with each clue.

Those readers who like to figure out plots and usually do will most likely be baffled and incorrect in this case.

Read THE LIES WE TOLD so you can join in the discussion of this masterfully created book...the characters are quite cunning themselves...namely Hannah.  

Make sure you have a large block of time available when you start reading this book. 5/5

This book was given to me as an ARC by the publisher via NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.  All opinion are my own.
