Let Me Lie Reviews
I feel really bad. I loved this authors first book and was very fond of her 2nd but I have so many problems with this one - not to do with the writing obviously she can write - and not even with the addictive quality it's not like I threw it aside, I wanted to know what happened - but I found the plot and execution disappointing considering it came from such an obviously talented author so rather than my *rating reflecting the writing quality this is ALL about everything else.
There are so many ...more

Something to ponder.......Your tickets are marked Disney World.......only your final destination turns out to be a neighborhood carnival. More on that later.

It's coming up on the one year anniversary of an unspeakable tragedy. Both of her parents committed suicide.....one right after the other.

My review www favouritenovels.wordpress.com
I loved every page of this psychological thriller, but then again I’m a big fan of Clare Mackintosh. Let Me Lie is now my favourite novel by Clare Mackintosh. With excellent twist in I highly recommend this book. Nineteen month ago Anna’s father took the newest and the most expensive car from the forecourt of his own business. He drove it to Eastbourne to be Beachy Head and parked it in the car park and threw himself off the clif ...more
Both parents committing suicide at the same exact spot seven months apart seemed a bit strange. Anna extremely missed both her parents but didn't know how much until a horrible reminder arrived in the mail.
This horrible reminder had Anna rethinking the possibility that her parents really didn't commit suicide but had been murdered. She never thought her parents would kill themselves and leave her without them.
Anna asked for the case to be reopened, and a retired policeman, Murray, was taking on ...more
Clare Mackintosh is one of those authors that is just such a genuinely great writer that I would read literally anything she puts out there. There is something about her style that never fails to reel me in and then she also comes up with these deeply complex characters that pull on your heart in a emotional way which is odd for a psychological thriller. On top of all of that, she never fails to surprise me with a multitude of twists and even though I may have figured out part of what was going ...more
Clare Mackintosh and I have a very interesting relationship; I have strong opinions about her novels....and she has no idea who I am. When I started reviewing thrillers, one of the first big stories I reviewed was I See You, and it just wasn't my favorite story. I do know that the author spent over a decade on the police force and it has become some sort of a muse for her widely popular thriller novels. When I received my advanced copy of Let Me Lie from Berkley (thank you!), I wanted to give ...more
I read Ms. Mackintosh’s book “I Let You Go” and enjoyed it. I was looking forward to another great read in “Let Me Lie”. Although some reviewers seem to be disappointed in this book I liked it. Here’s why:
The story is told from multiple points of view which is always interesting and since one of the narrators is not identified I found it that much more enticing.
The writing is very good. It flowed well and kept me reading. It had plenty of twists and lots of lies, lots and lots of lies! The main ...more
