Another big author with a new release in June! EVERY LAST LIE (releasing June 27th, 2017) is the next thriller from Mary Kubica. Its also another June #CJSReads2017 title 🙂
My Thoughts: 5/5 stars!
This was my first Kubica book, and I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about her writing. I received a copy of her newest book EVERY LAST LIE and dove right into it without knowing much about it. I was not disappointed and I’m looking forward to reading her other books!
Clara Solberg’s world completely changes in an afternoon when her husband and 4 year old daughter are in a horrific car crash. The crash killed her husband, Nick, while her daughter, Maisie, was completely unharmed. The crash was ultimately ruled as an accident, but in the weeks following the crash Maisie starts having night terrors about a bad man coming for them. This causes Clara to try and find out what really happened that day of the crash.
So many questions in her search for what happened to Nick. Who would want him dead? Why would they want him dead? Why was Maisie unharmed? As she dives deeper into the search for the truth, she uncovers twisted secrets and deceit along the way.
Kubica writes in the alternating perspectives – Clara present day and then Nick in his last months leading to the car crash. I’ve always loved this style of writing because it answers questions as you go or explains events in a unique way. The characters were incredibly well-developed and Kubica does an incredible job weaving these stories and making the reader never stop guessing. I couldn’t guess the ending even if I tried! So many new theories and an interesting look into the mind of a grief stricken widow. One thing I also liked about this story is that it was completely plausible. This event could definitely happen and nothing was too outlandish. That makes it have an eerie feel.
I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future! If you want a good psychological thriller that will keep you guessing, then this is the book for you.
A big thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review!
