The Lie by C.L. Taylor

The LieThe Lie by C.L. Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


After reading "The Accident" which kept my blood pumping fast way into the night I have been silently stalking C L Taylor. From afar I have been waiting for this book to come out, and way hooooo, it came out on Net Galley. I also heard from her publishers in my email account, so hey, I guess they knew I couldn't wait.

I have purposely waited until now to get my reading matter done on this new book from this author as I know many would grab and start reading it right away. I wanted to wait. I wanted to wait for the hype to simmer down so that I could chill out......they hype this book up again where it deserves to be.

We have a bunch of friends who go travelling, it was meant to be three destinations, but they only got to two.

This book is written where we have 'up to date NOW' and PAST 5 years ago....
You need to keep up as the book reflects back on the past.

Jane Hugh works and loves being in the animal sanctuary. She has a steady man in her life, she seems to be happy.
But Jane cannot be happy because as we all know, the past can come back to bite you on the bum! And that is exactly what happens to her.

There are a series of events that take place in the PRESENT DAY and then we go back to the PAST where we are told and experience what happened with her friends.

We not only have LIE'S we have SECRETS, and we know secrets come out too and get revealed when we least expect them.

The ones we thought we could trust, can we? The ones we thought we couldn't trust, can we not?

I adored this authors last book, and I loved this book.

I really don't know how authors dream up these stories, they are enthralling, compulsive, addictive and my time just flies when reading books such as this.

My thanks go to C L Taylor for yet another compulsive read I won't forget. And to HarperCollins UK, Avon via Net Galley for my copy to read and review

I know your name's not really Jane Hughes...

Jane Hughes has a loving partner, a job in an animal sanctuary and a tiny cottage in rural Wales. She's happier than she's ever been but her life is a lie. Jane Hughes does not really exist.

Five years earlier Jane and her then best friends went on holiday but what should have been the trip of a lifetime rapidly descended into a nightmare that claimed the lives of two of the women.

Jane has tried to put her past behind her but someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won't stop until they've destroyed Jane and everything she loves...

“The Lie felt to me like a Black Narcissus for the Facebook generation, a clever exploration of how petty jealousies and misunderstandings can unravel even the tightest of friendships. Claustrophobic, tense and thrilling, a thrill-ride of a novel that keeps you guessing.” – Elizabeth Haynes

“The Lie is absolutely brilliant – The Beach, only darker, more thrilling and more tense. It’s the story of a twisted, distorted friendship. It’s a compelling, addictive and wonderfully written tale. Can’t recommend it enough.” – Louise Douglas

“C.L Taylor delivers another compelling read that’ll keep you turning pages way too late into the night. Warning: may cause drowsiness the following day.” – Tamar Cohen 

“Tense, menacing and utterly addictive, The Lie is a superbly crafted thriller. I loved it!” – Miranda Dickinson

“A real page-turner, with two storylines: one of growing menace in the present, and a past narrative of a girls-only holiday that goes horrifically wrong. Creepy, horrifying and twisty. CL Taylor is extremely good at writing stories in which you have no idea which characters you can trust, and the result is intriguing and scary and extremely gripping.” – Julie Cohen
