The Lie by Kathryn Croft
AD | book tour – It’s been a while since I jumped on a book tour but the blurb really drew me in with this one so when Bookature reached out looking for advanced readers to take part in the book tour for The Lie by Kathryn Croft, I jumped at the chances.
My son said he walked his girlfriend home. But now she is missing…
Our new home was meant to be a chance for us to start again, to make new friends and forget the past. And as I look around the barbeque we’ve thrown for our neighbours, I dare to dream that things will be all right. I watch my husband joking as he flips burgers and my daughter turning cartwheels on our sun-bleached lawn. And then my gaze falls on my son Jacob, and his new girlfriend Rose, in her light blue jeans and her green crop top. There is a worried expression clouding her beautiful eyes…
The next day I get a call from Rose’s mother that chills me to the bone. Rose never returned after our party.
I wake my still-sleeping son, who walked Rose home the night before, and beg him for answers. Jacob promises he saw Rose to her front door, and I know he would never lie.
But when the police find Rose’s house keys hidden in our garden and a witness claims to have seen them arguing in the street, everyone insists I can’t believe what Jacob is telling me.
I will do anything to protect my boy. But I need to find a way to make the questions stop. Because there’s something about our family that nobody can ever know. And as the search for Rose closes in, how can I keep him safe and keep our secrets hidden?
The Review of The Lie by Kathryn Croft
This is a good solid thriller read which keeps you guessing at every stage. It starts really strong as The Lie really throws you right into the action. Rose is missing and no one knows what happed to her after Jacob walked her home that night. Soon through it’s clear that Jacob is lying and everyone starts to question what actually happened.
The Lie got a little slow for me at around 40% when I wasn’t sure what would happen next to justify 60% of the book still to go, but it is a story which just keeps twisting. I was left realising that all my assumptions were wrong. It soon sped back up though and I managed to devour the rest of the book in a single night.
This is a great read for people who like their books to keep them guessing.
The Lie was released on April 20th and is currently available on Amazon for just £1.99!
