Daisy and Simon’s marriage isn’t what it seems…
After years together, the arrival of longed-for daughter Millie sealed everything in place. They’re a happy little family of three.
So what if Simon drinks a bit too much sometimes—Daisy’s used to it. She knows he’s just letting off steam. Until one night at a party things spiral horribly out of control. And their happy little family of three will never be the same again.
In Lies, Lies, Lies, #1 Sunday Times bestselling author Adele Parks explores the darkest corners of a relationship in free fall in a mesmerizing tale of marriage and secrets.
Much like the last book I read from this author you have to go into this with the right expectations in order to enjoy it, in my opinion. While it starts out in a fairly average way, after you get to about the halfway point things take a sharp turn and you definitely need to be able to suspend some disbelief in order to not drive yourself crazy trying to decide if things are actually possible or not. What begins as a look inside Daisy and Simon’s troubled marriage soon takes a really dark turn and things get intense and super dramatic.
Per the title the lies pile up throughout the book and as it flips back and forth between Daisy and Simon it was hard to tell who was lying, maybe both of them? Tons of unreliability and while I did see a few of the many twists coming, there were so dang many that I didn’t because they were WILD. Wild can be fun though and I mostly had a fun experience with this one, but seriously, one of the reveals was so bizarre I had to laugh. If you’ve read this DM me so I can see if you had the same reaction to it as I did please! I’ll definitely read more from the author, she writes pretty entertaining and original, of over the top books.
Overall rating: 3.5/5
