His name is Michael Carmody.
He is a writer and a father.
His son is lying in a coma, fighting for his life.

Her name is Lorraine Cheevers.
She is an artist and mother.
An illicit affair has destroyed her marriage.

Michael is desperate to find the couple who left his son for dead, a victim of a hit and run.

Lorraine is desperate to start a new life for her and her daughter.

Michael and Lorraine are about to cross paths – damaged souls, drawn to one another.

They don’t know that their lives are already connected.

They don’t know the web of lies surrounding them.

They are each searching for the truth. But when they find it, it could destroy them both.

An illicit affair, a car robbery and a hit and run. Fragile Lies hooked me from the very beginning.

Lorraine’s marriage is over and Killian is fighting for his life deep in a coma.

Fragile Lies is beautifully written, my favorite line is.. In Venice, she drew a dancing woman whose madness was a living dream.. Melodic and poetic.

This tale is about broken families and broken lives. Killians decent is heartbreaking to read and all to real for some people. I read most of this book with heart full of anticipation. When you read Michael’s words as he talks to his son in hospital, full of regret and hope, as a parent I could only imagine what he is going through. I practically lived this read.

I loved Emily, her fierceness and rebelliousness were refreshing in a funny sort of way. Her relationship with her mother is very authentic.

Fragile Lies is not a happy read, it doesn’t even have an happy ending really, but I loved it. It is a wonderful insight into deceit and secrets and how people’s choices relate to what happens around us.
