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!
SHE’S WATCHING YOU,
BUT WHO’S WATCHING HER?
From the bestselling author of Dead North, a tense, claustrophobic psychological thriller perfect for fans of Lucy Foley, Claire McGowan and Clare Mackintosh.
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.
Anyone from the past I’ve been trying to outrun for years.
NOBODY CAN BE TRUSTED.
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.
