Blog Tour Review: The Lies We Told by Camilla Way


I'm so excited to be a part of this tour because this is one book that all fans of mysteries needs to read, young and adult alike. I had so much fun with it, seriously pick it up and give it a try.

Book Description:
The highly acclaimed author of Watching Edie returns with a new novel of dark psychological suspense that explores how those closest to us have the most to hide...

When Clara's boyfriend, Luke, disappears, everyone believes that he's left her, but Clara thinks she knows the truth. Recent evidence suggests that Luke had a stalker, and Clara worries that he's been kidnapped. Then Luke's older sister, Emma, who vanished twenty years ago, suddenly reappears.

Emma wants to help Clara with her search for Luke, but she refuses to talk about what happened--even though it nearly destroyed her family when she vanished. And the deeper Clara digs into Luke's mysterious disappearance, the more convinced she is that the two incidents are connected.

Exciting, intense, thrilling, and enthralling are all adjectives I would use in describing exactly how wonderful The Lies We Told is.

It completely took me by surprise and from the very first chapter had me captivated.

With the back and forth of the past and present slowly unfolding, each mystery had me spellbound until I was hooked and couldn't put it down. I read each page not only as fast as I could but as intently as I can remember reading a mystery in a really long time.

With fascination and slight horror of what would happen next and how the two stories merged, I was so transfixed by the stories that I couldn't even decide which one I liked more and as they slowly, meticulously came together, I decided I liked them both equally for all the same horrifying reasons.

Wonderfully put together and executed, The Lies We Told will leave you chilled to the bone by the very last page and completely in awe over its greatness.
