    I chose this book on the description given by the publisher, I just could not resist it. The first line of the book is a killer, it just draws you into this extraordinary dark and disturbing psychological thriller. It is set in 1980s Dublin. The characters are loathsome, yet you cannot...

    Loved this book! If there were ever a book to capture dark, comedic noir, this would be the one for 2018. This book is incredibly twisted, and yet there was levity and humor despite the darkness of the book. I felt ?WTF?!? in the best way when reading this! Liz Nugent really has...

    Insidiously dark, an undertone of creepiness, and all done without graphic gore. This is my kind of psychological thriller, one that keeps you guessing, proving one wrong when I was sure I knew where this was going. Oh, the chains that bind, the relationships that corrupt, the hope tha...

    Lying in Wait by Liz Nugent certainly starts off with a bang (and on my birthday no less) that gets one?s attention, a husband and wife are out late one night and the husband strangles a young women with the wife coming in to finish her off. WHAT?? A murder duo? At that point the boo...

    What a chilling and well-crafted novel! "My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it." That is the first line of the book and what follows is a captivating and engrossing novel. Lydia Fiztsimons is the wife of a respectable Judge and loving mother...

    The best part of this novel is the first sentence and it?s a doozy. It?s downhill from there. I enjoyed Nugent?s first novel, Unraveling Oliver, her second lacks tension. Told from the points of view of a mother, a son and a dead girl?s sister it reads like a sophomoric high sc...

    Where do I start with Lying In Wait?! What a book!!! I?m going to keep this short, because it?s all good and I don?t want to ramble on! I knew from the very first line (which is awesome) that I was going to enjoy this book. Once I started, I didn?t want to put it down, it w...

    "My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it." Seriously, with an opener like that, how could I not keep reading? Who in the world says ?the lying tramp deserved it?? Who is this person?! I must follow her around. I must! And I mean immediately. ...

    Liz Nugent you are one crafty lady. *claps hands* A husband and wife. A son. A murder. I'm not going to rehash the plot but just know this: I thought this book was brilliant. It was so much fun and I raced through the pages. I'm a little up in the air on the ending. I can't ...

    I was super eager to read this after loving Unravelling Oliver so much. How did it compare in my opinion? This new book from Liz Nugent is good, I really enjoyed it but I did not feel it quite had the wow factor that Unravelling Oliver did, nevertheless it's a really good read! A ...

    5 Fabulously Chilly Stars I LOVED this book!!!! I find myself unable to justify any rating other than five stars. SUMMARY The book opens with bang - a man and his wife murdering a young girl and covering it up. With that kind of start, you know it?s going to be quite a ride. ...

    Do you ever finish a book and have so much to say, but you are so mind f*@*%# that you don't even know what to say about it? Well that is how I feel after this book. I am speechless. The dysfunction, the ending, pretty much everything about it. I LOVED this book. A troubled girl nam...

    Liz Nugent has a very original approach to psychological thrillers. I don't think this book is a thriller as you know from the start what has happened. But psychological it certainly is. The end is very unsuspected. This tale is extremely well and believably told. ...

    What an excellent book! And an excellent audio book. I think I have to give it 5 stars just for the messed up mother/son relationship. I loved getting into the minds of these people and knowing what makes them do what they do, how they can be so bad and still make excuses for themselve...

    Liz Nugent you are one crafty lady. *claps hands* A husband and wife. A son. A murder. I'm not going to rehash the plot but just know this: I thought this book was brilliant. It was so much fun and I raced through the pages. I'm a little up in the air on the ending. I can't ...

    I was super eager to read this after loving Unravelling Oliver so much. How did it compare in my opinion? This new book from Liz Nugent is good, I really enjoyed it but I did not feel it quite had the wow factor that Unravelling Oliver did, nevertheless it's a really good read! A ...

    5 Fabulously Chilly Stars I LOVED this book!!!! I find myself unable to justify any rating other than five stars. SUMMARY The book opens with bang - a man and his wife murdering a young girl and covering it up. With that kind of start, you know it?s going to be quite a ride. ...

    Do you ever finish a book and have so much to say, but you are so mind f*@*%# that you don't even know what to say about it? Well that is how I feel after this book. I am speechless. The dysfunction, the ending, pretty much everything about it. I LOVED this book. A troubled girl nam...

    Liz Nugent has a very original approach to psychological thrillers. I don't think this book is a thriller as you know from the start what has happened. But psychological it certainly is. The end is very unsuspected. This tale is extremely well and believably told. ...

    What an excellent book! And an excellent audio book. I think I have to give it 5 stars just for the messed up mother/son relationship. I loved getting into the minds of these people and knowing what makes them do what they do, how they can be so bad and still make excuses for themselve...

    Thanks to Goodreads giveaways for the chance to read and review this novel! Liz Nugent is back after her hugely successful novel, ?Unraveling Oliver?, with an amazingly un-putdownable tour-de-force, ?Lying in Wait?. Lydia Fitzsimmons is living the good life; she has a s...

    Nugent is the queen of the opening liner. In both Unraveling Oliver and Lying In Wait, she draws you right in from the very first sentence. While the former was a bit of a slow burn for me, the latter was quite the opposite. With this particular book, she drew me in and then never let ...

    Having been a huge fan of Unravelling Oliver I really wanted to see what Liz Nugent would come up with next and that would be this - Lying in Wait. If you thought Oliver was a nightmare wait until you meet Lydia... What I loved about this, and indeed about Unravelling Oliver, is the...

    Wow, what a crazy story! The murder is announced in the first sentence: "My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it." The speaker is Lydia Fitzsimons, the wife of Andrew, a respected judge in Dublin. She is not exactly a reliable narrator; in fact, she...

    I chose this book on the description given by the publisher, I just could not resist it. The first line of the book is a killer, it just draws you into this extraordinary dark and disturbing psychological thriller. It is set in 1980s Dublin. The characters are loathsome, yet you cannot...

    FIVE PERFECT STARS Go ahead, click on Want to Read. Because you do. You will. You must. I?m at a loss here. Positively verklempt. How do I tell you how perfect this book is without gushing? When other books fail to reach my expectations, I can rattle off the reasons I didn?t ...

    Loved this book! If there were ever a book to capture dark, comedic noir, this would be the one for 2018. This book is incredibly twisted, and yet there was levity and humor despite the darkness of the book. I felt ?WTF?!? in the best way when reading this! Liz Nugent really has...

    Insidiously dark, an undertone of creepiness, and all done without graphic gore. This is my kind of psychological thriller, one that keeps you guessing, proving one wrong when I was sure I knew where this was going. Oh, the chains that bind, the relationships that corrupt, the hope tha...

    Lying in Wait by Liz Nugent certainly starts off with a bang (and on my birthday no less) that gets one?s attention, a husband and wife are out late one night and the husband strangles a young women with the wife coming in to finish her off. WHAT?? A murder duo? At that point the boo...

    The best part of this novel is the first sentence and it?s a doozy. It?s downhill from there. I enjoyed Nugent?s first novel, Unraveling Oliver, her second lacks tension. Told from the points of view of a mother, a son and a dead girl?s sister it reads like a sophomoric high sc...

    I chose this book on the description given by the publisher, I just could not resist it. The first line of the book is a killer, it just draws you into this extraordinary dark and disturbing psychological thriller. It is set in 1980s Dublin. The characters are loathsome, yet you cannot...

    FIVE PERFECT STARS Go ahead, click on Want to Read. Because you do. You will. You must. I?m at a loss here. Positively verklempt. How do I tell you how perfect this book is without gushing? When other books fail to reach my expectations, I can rattle off the reasons I didn?t ...

    Christmas Day is Lydia?s only son, Lawrence?s birthday, and the day her husband, Andrew died.....displacing a turkey carcass from its serving platter, falling face down across the table, his hair in turkey grease. ...Andrew drove a vintage jaguar sedan... wore a trilby hat. He ...

    Loved this book! If there were ever a book to capture dark, comedic noir, this would be the one for 2018. This book is incredibly twisted, and yet there was levity and humor despite the darkness of the book. I felt ?WTF?!? in the best way when reading this! Liz Nugent really has...

    Insidiously dark, an undertone of creepiness, and all done without graphic gore. This is my kind of psychological thriller, one that keeps you guessing, proving one wrong when I was sure I knew where this was going. Oh, the chains that bind, the relationships that corrupt, the hope tha...

    Lying in Wait by Liz Nugent certainly starts off with a bang (and on my birthday no less) that gets one?s attention, a husband and wife are out late one night and the husband strangles a young women with the wife coming in to finish her off. WHAT?? A murder duo? At that point the boo...

    Well this is amazing, a psychological thriller that really delivers and definitely lives up to the buzz and reviews that are generating for this book. It was crazy creepy, sometimes almost made me gasp (I?m not kidding here), this is one heck of a good read. This book features a t...

    What a chilling and well-crafted novel! "My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it." That is the first line of the book and what follows is a captivating and engrossing novel. Lydia Fiztsimons is the wife of a respectable Judge and loving mother...

    The best part of this novel is the first sentence and it?s a doozy. It?s downhill from there. I enjoyed Nugent?s first novel, Unraveling Oliver, her second lacks tension. Told from the points of view of a mother, a son and a dead girl?s sister it reads like a sophomoric high sc...

    What lies beyond the kitchen window?  Here we have a mum who will do anything to hang onto her boy, Lawrence, despite the fact that he is grown now, and raring to get out on his own.  Who else would take care of her?  Mum is used to getting her own way.  Is she insane or merely...

    I think there should be a new fiction genre called The Best Books Ever. If there were a genre called The Best Books Ever this book would be the Best Book Ever in the genre Best Books Ever. This book is so much dark and creepy fun. I absolutely loved it from the starting line "My hus...

    Liz Nugent you are one crafty lady. *claps hands* A husband and wife. A son. A murder. I'm not going to rehash the plot but just know this: I thought this book was brilliant. It was so much fun and I raced through the pages. I'm a little up in the air on the ending. I can't ...

    I was super eager to read this after loving Unravelling Oliver so much. How did it compare in my opinion? This new book from Liz Nugent is good, I really enjoyed it but I did not feel it quite had the wow factor that Unravelling Oliver did, nevertheless it's a really good read! A ...

    5 Fabulously Chilly Stars I LOVED this book!!!! I find myself unable to justify any rating other than five stars. SUMMARY The book opens with bang - a man and his wife murdering a young girl and covering it up. With that kind of start, you know it?s going to be quite a ride. ...

    Do you ever finish a book and have so much to say, but you are so mind f*@*%# that you don't even know what to say about it? Well that is how I feel after this book. I am speechless. The dysfunction, the ending, pretty much everything about it. I LOVED this book. A troubled girl nam...

    Liz Nugent has a very original approach to psychological thrillers. I don't think this book is a thriller as you know from the start what has happened. But psychological it certainly is. The end is very unsuspected. This tale is extremely well and believably told. ...

    What an excellent book! And an excellent audio book. I think I have to give it 5 stars just for the messed up mother/son relationship. I loved getting into the minds of these people and knowing what makes them do what they do, how they can be so bad and still make excuses for themselve...

    Thanks to Goodreads giveaways for the chance to read and review this novel! Liz Nugent is back after her hugely successful novel, ?Unraveling Oliver?, with an amazingly un-putdownable tour-de-force, ?Lying in Wait?. Lydia Fitzsimmons is living the good life; she has a s...

    Nugent is the queen of the opening liner. In both Unraveling Oliver and Lying In Wait, she draws you right in from the very first sentence. While the former was a bit of a slow burn for me, the latter was quite the opposite. With this particular book, she drew me in and then never let ...

    Having been a huge fan of Unravelling Oliver I really wanted to see what Liz Nugent would come up with next and that would be this - Lying in Wait. If you thought Oliver was a nightmare wait until you meet Lydia... What I loved about this, and indeed about Unravelling Oliver, is the...

    I chose this book on the description given by the publisher, I just could not resist it. The first line of the book is a killer, it just draws you into this extraordinary dark and disturbing psychological thriller. It is set in 1980s Dublin. The characters are loathsome, yet you cannot...

    Loved this book! If there were ever a book to capture dark, comedic noir, this would be the one for 2018. This book is incredibly twisted, and yet there was levity and humor despite the darkness of the book. I felt ?WTF?!? in the best way when reading this! Liz Nugent really has...

    Insidiously dark, an undertone of creepiness, and all done without graphic gore. This is my kind of psychological thriller, one that keeps you guessing, proving one wrong when I was sure I knew where this was going. Oh, the chains that bind, the relationships that corrupt, the hope tha...

    Lying in Wait by Liz Nugent certainly starts off with a bang (and on my birthday no less) that gets one?s attention, a husband and wife are out late one night and the husband strangles a young women with the wife coming in to finish her off. WHAT?? A murder duo? At that point the boo...

    The best part of this novel is the first sentence and it?s a doozy. It?s downhill from there. I enjoyed Nugent?s first novel, Unraveling Oliver, her second lacks tension. Told from the points of view of a mother, a son and a dead girl?s sister it reads like a sophomoric high sc...

    Liz Nugent has a very original approach to psychological thrillers. I don't think this book is a thriller as you know from the start what has happened. But psychological it certainly is. The end is very unsuspected. This tale is extremely well and believably told. ...

    Nugent is the queen of the opening liner. In both Unraveling Oliver and Lying In Wait, she draws you right in from the very first sentence. While the former was a bit of a slow burn for me, the latter was quite the opposite. With this particular book, she drew me in and then never let ...

    I chose this book based on the description of the cover with this opening line "My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it"... I was gravitated to this little baby right away and was anxious to dive right in. I have read many disappointing psycholo...

    Well this is amazing, a psychological thriller that really delivers and definitely lives up to the buzz and reviews that are generating for this book. It was crazy creepy, sometimes almost made me gasp (I?m not kidding here), this is one heck of a good read. This book features a t...

    What a chilling and well-crafted novel! "My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it." That is the first line of the book and what follows is a captivating and engrossing novel. Lydia Fiztsimons is the wife of a respectable Judge and loving mother...

    The best part of this novel is the first sentence and it?s a doozy. It?s downhill from there. I enjoyed Nugent?s first novel, Unraveling Oliver, her second lacks tension. Told from the points of view of a mother, a son and a dead girl?s sister it reads like a sophomoric high sc...

    Liz Nugent's opening line in this twisted and devious page turning mystery certainly creates an impact. My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it. Having loved Liz Nugent's previous novel Unravelling Oliver I was thrilled to get an opportunit...

    I think there should be a new fiction genre called The Best Books Ever. If there were a genre called The Best Books Ever this book would be the Best Book Ever in the genre Best Books Ever. This book is so much dark and creepy fun. I absolutely loved it from the starting line "My hus...

    4 wow this was quite the creepy story stars! My reviews can be found here: https://yayareadslotsofbooks.wordpres... "Determination becomes obsession and then it becomes all that matters." Lydia has it all or so it seems. She is married to a judge, Andrew, has a son. Lawrence,...

    Where do I start with Lying In Wait?! What a book!!! I?m going to keep this short, because it?s all good and I don?t want to ramble on! I knew from the very first line (which is awesome) that I was going to enjoy this book. Once I started, I didn?t want to put it down, it w...

    "My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it." Seriously, with an opener like that, how could I not keep reading? Who in the world says ?the lying tramp deserved it?? Who is this person?! I must follow her around. I must! And I mean immediately. ...

    Liz Nugent you are one crafty lady. *claps hands* A husband and wife. A son. A murder. I'm not going to rehash the plot but just know this: I thought this book was brilliant. It was so much fun and I raced through the pages. I'm a little up in the air on the ending. I can't ...

    I was super eager to read this after loving Unravelling Oliver so much. How did it compare in my opinion? This new book from Liz Nugent is good, I really enjoyed it but I did not feel it quite had the wow factor that Unravelling Oliver did, nevertheless it's a really good read! A ...

    5 Fabulously Chilly Stars I LOVED this book!!!! I find myself unable to justify any rating other than five stars. SUMMARY The book opens with bang - a man and his wife murdering a young girl and covering it up. With that kind of start, you know it?s going to be quite a ride. ...

    Do you ever finish a book and have so much to say, but you are so mind f*@*%# that you don't even know what to say about it? Well that is how I feel after this book. I am speechless. The dysfunction, the ending, pretty much everything about it. I LOVED this book. A troubled girl nam...
