Synposis: In the playground it’s the law of the jungle But at the school gate, there are no rules at all… When Sadie Roper moves back to London, she’s determined to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. First, she needs to get her daughter settled into a new school-one of the most exclusive in the city. Next, she’s going to get back the high-flying criminal barrister career she sacrificed for marriage ten years earlier. But nothing goes quite as planned. The school is not very welcoming newcomers, her daughter hasn’t made any friends yet and the other mothers are as fiercely competitive as their children. Sadie immediately finds herself on the outside as she navigates the fraught politics of the school gate. But the tide starts to turn as Sadie begins to work on a scandalous, high-profile case that’s the perfect opportunity to prove herself again, even though a dangerous flirtation threatens to cloud her professional judgment. And when Julia, queen of the school moms, befriends Sadie, she draws her into the heart of the world from which she was previously excluded. Soon Sadie and her family start to thrive, but does this close new friendship prevent her from seeing the truth? Sadie may be keeping her friends close, but what she doesn’t know is that her enemies are closer still… Dark, addictive and compelling, The Lies You Told is a compulsive psychological thriller from a master storyteller.
I am huge fan of domestic thrillers. Always have been and lately I have been reading more and more of them. This was one I had a hard time to put down because I had to know what was going to happen next. I was up late two nights to finish this book, and I loved every fast paced and crazy minute. I was just blown away by the story and can see why so many people are talking about it.
This book contain layers and my best advice is to just read it. This is one that if I talked about all of the things going on, something would be ruined. Just the words on the cover alone should be enough to hook someone, and the rest of the story will keep you going until you are done. I was very intrigued by how this book played out and look forward to more from this author in the future.
This is a great thriller for parents and non parents. It deals with real life issues and how to live in the world we are in. How it is hard to be a parent who works and all of that pressure kids are under all of the time. Tough and important issues I was glad were brought up in this book.
Highly suggest to fans of domestic thrillers and those who want to try out the genre. This book was great, and I cannot wait for more from Tyce in the future.
