My review of After the Lie by Kerry Fisher

One little lie can make one big difference …

Lydia has the ‘right’ kind of friends, her children are at the ‘right’ kind of school and she’s married to the ‘right’ sort of man – kind, steady, reliable Mark. Her wedding business is flourishing and even though she is at loggerheads with her mother, she couldn’t ask for anything more from life.

But the truth is that Lydia has been lucky. She has been living a lie for years and Mark has no idea who he is really married to. But nothing lasts forever and the past has a funny way of catching up with the present. When the person who knows all of Lydia’s dark little secrets turns up at the school gates, his presence threatens to blow Lydia’s life apart.

What is Lydia’s terrible truth? Once the secret is out, you can’t put it back …

This was plugged as an addictive and gripping read about love, life and living a lie.  I couldn’t agree more, I read the book in two sitting as it firmly gripped me and I NEEDED to know what happened!  I had wanted to read it nearer to the publication date but it was far too tempting!!  For once, this was a difficult book for me, I don’t think I have ever disliked some of the main characters so much, I even took a dislike to the dog!!  I can happily report though that by the end of the story, all but one of the characters was back on the likable list – but don’t think I could ever like Lydia’s mum – sorry!

Really enjoyable read,  there were a few twists and turns but I did think it was a waiting game through the book for the secret to come out, I was really surprised it was hidden for as long as it was but boy did it come out with a bang!  I did guess part of the ending but that didn’t detract at all from the story – 5 stars from me 🙂
