I know your name’s not really Jane Hughes . . .
Jane Hughes has a loving partner, a job in an animal sanctuary and a tiny cottage in rural Wales. She’s happier than she’s ever been but her life is a lie. Jane Hughes does not really exist.
Five years earlier Jane and her then best friends went on holiday but what should have been the trip of a lifetime rapidly descended into a nightmare that claimed the lives of two of the women.
Jane has tried to put the past behind her but someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Jane and everything she loves . . .
I have looked forward to reading The Lie for ages and I was not disappointed. I gave an ooooo of excitement at the end of the first chapter. The Lie is about four friends who all have secrets and those secrets are about to be uncovered.
The Lie is beautiful in its description of Nepal and although is fairly slow paced held my attention. I could not wait to find out what this tale was all about. The story dips between what happened five years ago and the present day, but without giving away spoilers I can’t say a lot, other than how much I enjoyed it.
It is a tale of friendship and betrayal. A super dark, gripping thriller with twists and an ending you don’t see coming.
