The Lies I Tell by Julie Clark

Meg definitely knew how to lie and to con people.

She knew how to con because of her rough childhood and having to live in a car after her mother's boyfriend conned them out of their house. 

She made it her goal to ruin him.

In the meantime, Meg would research someone in the news that had troubles, but she also made sure they had a nice place to live and money that she could make disappear into her own account. 

She always made sure her past was covered up and no one could really find out who she was.

But Kat did find her and did know her and made it her goal to ruin Meg’s life the way Meg ruined Kat’s life ten years ago.  She wants to expose Meg by writing a book about her cons. 

Can Kat do it?  Or does Meg have a plan of her own for Kat?  Meg is pretty cunning.

We follow Kat as she makes friends with Meg, as Meg investigates Kat because she doesn’t believe the story Kat tells her, as Meg keeps conning, and as they both try to seek revenge on who they want to ruin.

Will they both do what they sought to do?

My money was on Meg. She really was a major con artist with cons that were ones difficult to believe people would fall for.

Kat seemed too naive to trip up Meg.

THE LIES I TELL is a psychological thriller that will keep you guessing, have you shaking your head, and one that you won’t want to put down.  5/5
