    4.5? Anna is trying to come to terms with her family?s tragic past. You see, she lost both parents to suicide. Adding to the unbearable pain, it was only within 7 months of each-other. Both having taken their lives in the very same way. Anna is starting over. She has a new boy...

    FOUR STARS With a smidgen of optimism, I finally decided on a 4 star rating for LET ME LIE. But, in all fairness of honest disclosure, at certain points in the book I felt the dreaded THREE STAR rating looming in the distance. My queen of plot twists, Clare Mackintosh, does not ...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review. Truth be told, Let Me Lie didn't do much for me.  As psychological thrillers go, this was tepid to the point of going cold.  Doubly disappointing as I thoroughly enjoyed the author's first novel, I Let You Go.   Mistakes ...

    It?s so hard to weed out the mediocre from the excellent when it comes to psychological thrillers ? hard enough that every now and then, it feels like it might be best to abandon the genre altogether. I?m not quite there yet, but Let Me Lie definitely gets tossed onto the mediocr...

    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 ...

    Anna's parents committed suicide. They both jumped from Beachy Head a few months apart. Close to the anniversary of her mother's death, Anna receives a cryptic note. Suicide? Think again. She begins to think that maybe her parents were murdered. Maybe they didn't both leap to th...

    My review www favouritenovels.wordpress.com Twitter @favouritenovels 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. ...

    4.5?s One year it had been ? one year since Anna had lost her mother; seven months after she had lost her father. Her grief was a constant, always by her side. Now with two-month-old Ella, she continued to feel the need to talk to her mum, to ask her advice. Anna also wished she...

    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 yo...

    Anna Johnson is having to face the one-year anniversary of her mother Caroline?s suicide...which came 6 months after her father Tom?s death in the same manner and at the same place. Anna lives in their old house with her partner, Mark Hemmings and their newborn daughter, Ella. She?...

    It?s no secret that I am a huge fan of Clare Mackintosh?s debut book I Let You Go and even now, years after reading it ? still think OMG what a twist, so you can imagine my delight to receive an early copy of her 3rd standalone psychological thriller Let Me Lie from her publisher...

    Having enjoyed both I Let You Go and I See You, I was so excited to tackle another mystery promising the twists and turns with which Clare Mackintosh's writing has become associated. The summary of Let Me Lie caught my eye right off the bat - if not suicide or murder, what could be ...

    I am a huge fan of this authors books so did a bit of a happy dance when I found out she had a new one coming out. The story flicks between different characters, this way we get to know more about each character. One of the characters we get to meet is Murray, a retired CID who take...

    4.5? Anna is trying to come to terms with her family?s tragic past. You see, she lost both parents to suicide. Adding to the unbearable pain, it was only within 7 months of each-other. Both having taken their lives in the very same way. Anna is starting over. She has a new boy...

    FOUR STARS With a smidgen of optimism, I finally decided on a 4 star rating for LET ME LIE. But, in all fairness of honest disclosure, at certain points in the book I felt the dreaded THREE STAR rating looming in the distance. My queen of plot twists, Clare Mackintosh, does not ...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review. Truth be told, Let Me Lie didn't do much for me.  As psychological thrillers go, this was tepid to the point of going cold.  Doubly disappointing as I thoroughly enjoyed the author's first novel, I Let You Go.   Mistakes ...

    2.5 stars rounded down First off I want to mention that I absolutely loved I LET YOU GO and was absolutely WOWED by that book and subsequently will read anything that CLARE MACKINTOSH writes! Even though this one didn't quite work out for me I will still read future books by this au...

    Clare Mackintosh is a brilliant writer. If she writes it, I will read it. I hate to compare author?s novels to each other and not take them as original works, but I struggled with that in this case. I Let You Go was an amazing book - it ripped out my heart and brought me to tears...

    I have read some emotionally driven thrillers in the past, but boy oh boy what the heat on in this one. I am definitely not going to go into this complex and cleverly written thriller. You need to go in blind with this one and enjoy the dynamics of this great book. About 3/4 o...
