I'm so thrilled to be one of the many wonderful bloggers taking part in the blog tour for Lies Between Us by Ronnie Turner and sharing my review today. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
Will they ever learn the truth?
Three people, leading very different lives, are about to be brought together – with devastating consequences . . .
John has a perfect life, until the day his daughter goes missing.
Maisie cares for her patients, but hides her own traumatic past.
Miller should be an innocent child, but is obsessed with something he can’t have.
They all have something in common, though none of them know it – and the truth won’t stay hidden for long . . .
A gripping psychological thriller for fans of Clare Mackintosh, Shari Lapena and Lisa Jewell.
(E-Book & Audiobook 1st October,
Paperback 13th December 2018)
So I hope I'm going to make sense and not ramble too much in my review but one thing I will try to do is that I will be as vague as I can in regards to the plot. This is because all of the little twists and turns are so worth discovering for yourself. Lies Between Us has a brilliant and tightly woven plot that had me questioning everything and everyone. I can't begin to describe how addictive I found the plot as I just had to know what would happen next!
You really are getting a perfect example of a book that will make you think, put you on edge and pull you in completely. If you prefer your psychological thrillers on the slightly darker side then I would definitely say you have found your book. I can't begin to describe how on edge some parts of this book made me with plenty of tension filled moments as well as being pretty chilling in parts.
I was so intrigued by the three characters of John, Maisie and Miller especially as they are seemingly unconnected. I loved the fact that I was kept guessing throughout making my own assumptions and trying to get my head around things. I thought that each character played their part and brought so much to the story whether it was bringing an emotional connection or completely creeping me out! One thing each character has in common is that I was intrigued by each one, sometimes when you have multiple perspectives one or more voices can get left behind. However I think Ronnie Turner created a brilliant balance making each voice as important and integral to the story.
I really didn't have a clue where I was being led and that made everything even more intense. I raced through this book in one day I just had to know how it would all end!
There are so many words that I could use to describe this book but edgy, dark and very clever seem perfect! Lies Between Us is a twisted tale of love, obsession and lies. Loved it!
