The Lies We Hide - Blog tour.jpg

The truth can set you free, or make you a prisoner…

Thirty years ago, Nicola Watson lived with her parents and older brother in a respectable suburb. At ten years old, she didn’t yet understand why her stomach tightened when she heard her father’s heavy tread as he returned home late at night, or why it made her brother Graham’s stammer get worse, or why one night her mother Carol woke them both, wide-eyed and whispering, and took them out of their home and into the unknown.

Now a successful lawyer in the city, with a life poles apart from her dark beginnings, Nicola has returned home for her mother’s funeral. But as she stands in her mother’s house, remembering the woman who sacrificed everything for her children, Nicola has to confront the guilt that she feels for leaving her family behind. And the belief that she played a part in the events that led to her brother going to prison for murder.

All Carol wanted was to protect her children, but escaping her husband was only the beginning of the story. And when Nicola learns the truth of what her mother did, it will change everything she thought she knew about herself and her family.

A gripping, emotional story of family secrets, and the strength of a mother’s love in the darkest times. The next powerful read for fans of The Silent Wife, Kerry Lonsdale and Emily Bleeker.

Oh my, this author knows how to write a gripper thriller that has you hooked!
As soon as I started reading this story I knew it was one that I would not want to put down and I was completely drawn in.  The plot moved at an excellent pace and I flew through the pages – I was determined not to stop reading this one until I had finished and stayed up later than planned to finish it off and genuinely felt a little bereft when it was over!
The plot is so well developed, I was kept completely on my toes.  I loved the twists as the book progressed and I was doubting what I was certain I knew – and I loved the book for that!!  The characters were superb, so well developed and they worked brilliantly with the plotline.
It is 5 stars from me for this one, it is another brilliant release from this author and I cannot wait to see what she releases next – very highly recommended!!
