LET ME LIE – Clare Mackintosh
Check back for the #CJSReads2018 thoughts 🙂
My Thoughts: 3.5/5 stars!
Who else is a Clare Mackintosh fan? I loved I SEE YOU when it released last year and I couldn’t wait to see what she came up with next. LET ME LIE is on the lighter side when it comes to a suspense novel with a slower build to it. So if you’re going into it expecting a crazy thriller, then you may come out disappointed.
Tom and Caroline Johnson committed suicide just two years ago. They couldn’t live without the other, so they went together. Anna, their daughter, is trying to come to terms with their deaths, but she has so many questions. Why did they take their lives? She begins to investigate into their suicides more, but there’s someone that wants the past to remain buried.
“The police say it was suicide. Anna says it was murder. They’re both wrong.”
There’s absolutely no denying that Clare Mackintosh knows how to write a story. The way she develops the characters and weaves the events always amazes me. So for the writing alone this was a great read. If you’re in the market for a slower burn read then this will be perfect for you! I can see this being one that Mackintosh fans will be divided on, but that’s what keeps this community so fun!
That last portion of the book will sink it’s teeth into you and you won’t want to stop reading!
What do you think of her books? Do you ever build up expectations too much when grabbing the newest release from a favorite author?
