Welcome to my spot on the blog tour for The Lies I Tell by Joel Hames. Thank you to Zooloos Book Tours for the spot on the tour. Read on for more info and my review!



From the bestselling author of Dead North, a tense, claustrophobic psychological thriller perfect for fans of Lucy Foley, Claire McGowan and Clare Mackintosh.

Meet Polly.
Meet Emily.
Meet Belinda.

They’re all me.

My name is Lisa and I’m an identity thief. If I’m not inside your system stealing your money, I’ve probably already stolen it. I’m your friend. I’m a thief. I’m gone. I’m in control.

Only now, the tables have been turned. I’m in danger. My son is in danger. And I don’t know where that danger’s coming from.

Any friend.
Any enemy.
Any stranger.
Anyone from the past I’ve been trying to outrun for years.

The Lies I Tell by Joel Hames is an edgy thriller that head me on the edge of my seat. I love the short chapters and the dual timeline. The pacing was perfect for this story, and I was invested from beginning to end.

When dual timelines are written well, I am always so.impressed. I love the experience of following Lisa now vs the past. It is a unique way to build a character and it was done well.

Suspenseful and snappy, The Lies I Tell is a great read with great characters. I enjoyed this and will keep an eye out for more from this author.

Thank you to Zooloos Book Tours for the review copy and the opportunity to honestly review this book on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.



A Londoner in exile, Joel Hames lives in rural Lancashire with his wife and two daughters.

His works of fiction include the bestselling Sam Williams trilogy Dead North, No One Will Hear and The Cold Years, and the standalone psychological thriller The Lies I Tell.

When not writing or spending time with his family, Joel likes to eat, cook, play the piano, and make up excuses to avoid walking the dog. There’s the MMA thing, too, but he doesn’t like to show off.
