New Release Review: The Lies We Told by Camilla Way

by Camilla Way
Release Date: October 9, 2018

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...

A daughter
Beth has always known there was something strange about her daughter, Hannah. The lack of emotion, the disturbing behavior, the apparent delight in hurting others...Sometimes Beth is scared of her and what she could be capable of.

A son
Luke comes from the perfect family, with the perfect parents. But one day, he disappears without a trace, and his girlfriend, Clara, is desperate to discover what has happened to him.

A life built on lies
As Clara digs into the past, she realizes that no family is truly perfect, and uncovers a link between Luke's long-lost sister and a strange girl named Hannah. Now Luke's life is in danger because of the lies once told and the secrets once kept. Can Clara find him before it's too late?

My review: 4 stars
I love a good psychological suspense novel and The Lies We Told by Camilla Way did not disappoint. The author gives us two story lines- one set in 1986 and the other in the present. I thought the dual story line worked *so* well- I was trying my best to figure out how they would be connected but will admit to not having it all figured out by the time it was revealed. I felt very invested in the characters- in particular Clara. There were so many twists and deep dark secrets! I really enjoyed this book and was quite surprised at the ending.
