When Milla Graham arrives in the picture-perfect village of Buckley she tells everyone she’s investigating the murder of her mother, who died eighteen years ago. But there’s already one Milla Graham buried in the churchyard and another about to be found dead in the derelict family mansion.

Obviously she’s lying.

Detective Inspector Ben Taylor has no life outside the police force. Even his own colleagues think he’s a boring stick-in-the-mud. But now he’s met Milla and his safe, comfortable life has been turned upside down. She’s crashed his car, emptied his wallet and is about to get him fired.

He knows she’s a liar because she cheerfully told him so.

Unless she’s lying about that too …

My thoughts:

The characters in this book are well developed and entertaining. Milla was very intriguing and she was well written. She was witty, feisty and she kept me on my toes. At times I wondered if what she was saying was the truth, lie or a half truth. I thought Ben was great, I loved their interactions together. He was solid, strong and determined. 

I loved the mystery running throughout the book it kept me wondering and questioning things. I didn't know what to believe half the time. I kept trying to guess how it would all end and this was half the fun. It was suspenseful at times and I was nearly on the edge of my seat at one point. The story kept my interest and I thought everything came together brilliantly. Bits and pieces are revealed along the way that kept me hooked!


I am so happy that I got the chance to read this book. There is a little bit of everything to enjoy - mystery, suspense and a bit of romance. I will definitely be reading more books by Louise Marley. 

Trust Me I Lie has great characters and is full of mystery!

Five stars from me!
(If I could give more stars I would)

Thank you to Louise Marley who kindly sent me a copy in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
