Happy Monday and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for All The Little Lies by Chris Curran! My thanks to the author for the invitation to join and to the publisher for my review copy.
| ABOUT THE BOOK |
One email is all it takes to turn Eve’s world upside down. It contains a picture of her true birth mother, Stella, and proves that Eve’s entire life with her adoptive parents has been a lie.
Now she must unravel the mystery of Stella’s dark past. But what Eve finds will force her to take enormous risks, which put her – and her new-born baby – in immediate danger…
| MY THOUGHTS |
After having really enjoyed Chris Currant’s previous novel, Her Deadly Secret, I was delighted to be asked to read her next offering and discover what devilish plot she came up with this time.
Eve has always known she was adopted. But when she receives an email from a friend about her birth mother, Eve’s world is completely turned upside down. Her adoptive parents have been lying to her for years and now Eve is determined to find out the truth.
And off we go on a thrilling ride with so many twists and turns, it almost left me with whiplash. There are so many questions that need answers, so many lies that need to be discovered and just when you think there couldn’t possibly be any left, up pop a few more. Nobody in this story can be trusted to tell the truth about anything.
The chapters alternate between Eve in the present day and her birth mother, Stella, in the past. Slowly but surely a picture starts to form of what happened back then and why Eve may now find herself in danger. Because some people will stop at nothing to stop the truth from coming out. Now, I must admit that the chapters filling us in on Stella’s life were the ones that really gripped me. I truly felt for her and all the things she went through and as I am an incredibly impatient person, I just wanted to get to those reveals. That’s not to say Eve’s chapters don’t make for compelling reading either. It’s just the way my brain is programmed.
There was one event I figured out but there was a heck of a lot more that I didn’t see coming at all. All The Little Lies is a well-paced and gripping read full of untrustworthy characters. Maybe not quite for those with trust issues but for those who enjoy a twisty psychological thriller, I have no doubt you’ll enjoy this one.
All The Little Lies is available to buy!
| ABOUT THE AUTHOR |
All the Little Lies is Chris Curran’s fourth psychological thriller for Harper Collins Killer Reads. She lives in East Sussex and writes, standing up, in a room with no view. When inspiration falters she finds tea (Earl Grey, hot) and a bout of ironing are very therapeutic. In breaks between books she dusts, cooks, walks by the sea and reads – but mostly reads.
