Those Who Lie by Diane Jeffrey @dianefjeffrey @NeverlandBT #Review #BlogTour


Thank you for joining me for my stop on the Blog Tour today, I am delighted to be bringing you my review of Those Who Lie by Diane Jeffrey. There is also a brilliant giveaway to enter too! 

First of all let's take a look at the description for the book.

BLURB

Emily Klein doesn’t know she has killed her husband until the day of his funeral.

At first, signs point to a tragic accident. Yet, as Emily pieces together the events before his death – events which led to her own memory loss – she begins to suspect that her husband’s death may have been the result of more than a terrible twist of fate…

But the accident is only the beginning. Because while Emily’s physical scars will heal, the trauma of the accident has awakened old ghosts. She hears strange sounds, catches things that can’t possibly be there in the corner of her eye. Before long, everywhere she looks, she seems to see her husband.

And suddenly, Emily finds herself asking the most dangerous question of all.

Can she really trust herself?

My Review

The first thing I want to mention is that this story gets going right from the start and to be honest the momentum just doesn't stop. We follow Emily on her journey as she tries to recover her memories and then onto finally discover the truth. Emily is an intriguing character and she has faced some tough things in her life so you instantly feel for her character. 


I found Those Who Lie had an almost eerie and unsettled feeling to it at times as I never knew what to trust or who to trust. There were also a couple of tense moments in this book and this was mainly due to some great twists and turns!

I couldn't put this book down especially as it got near to the end, I just had to know what was happening. It would have been lovely to sit and read this in one go but life does get in the way especially with two small children. However as soon as it was my little ones bedtime I had my nose in this book!


The different timelines that feature within the book were a brilliant addition as I felt that you got to know Emily's character so much more. Not only did you get to know her in the present but also in the past too. Moving from one timeline to another is smoothly done with more questions being raised as information is revealed from the past. I thought this was a great way of moving the plot on and giving the reader even more to think about.

Everything is revealed slowly but surely and I couldn't help but want to turn the pages. I loved joining Emily as she tries to discover the truth and along the way I had a couple of theories about what was actually happening. Although trying to put all the information together was one of the things I enjoyed most about this book. 


With plenty of tension and intriguing characters Those Who Lie is a brilliant debut! 

Thank you to Jenny at Neverland Blog Tours, Diane Jeffrey, HQDigitalUK & Netgalley for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
