Her name was Summer during her childhood, and she changed her name to Rainy as an adult - we meet Summer as she and her mother left their home and moved into an old prison that was turned into a compound controlled by an abusive man named Taured.
We now meet Rainy as an adult who moved from New York to Washington to be with her boyfriend and lives in an exclusive neighborhood called Tiger Mountain.
The women in Tiger Mountain pretended to want to be friends with Rainy and invited her to go to Las Vegas for a girls' weekend. Rainy didn't want to go because of bad memories from her childhood.
Her gut feeling about something going wrong and not wanting to go to Vegas turned out to be exactly what she thought....a bad situation.
Rainy was a very strange girl and a very strong woman. Her past keeps her from being able to make friends and to trust anyone.
I definitely didn't like Taured, and the women she went to Vegas with all seemed fake.
AN HONEST LIE is very intense, dark, and chilling.
Be aware that a cult and disturbing situations are in this book.
Well written and definitely for those who enjoy thrillers, tension, and an evil male character. 4/5
This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.
