Ll around you by the time you start to realise that however painful the truth might be it's the lies that cause the real damage well by then it could just be too late Longlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Shortlisted for the British Book Awards Crime Novel of the Yea. Lie With Me by Sabine Durrant is a thriller that upon first glance sounded like it would be one of those completely compelling reads However for me it just never grabbed me at all so I seem to be in the minority for this one being one that didn t really care for itWe start off with meeting Paul whom I would probably best describe as a freeloading womanizer that is also a compulsive liar Strike one for me personally since I just didn t care for him at all right from the beginning but I believe this is one of those books where you are not meant to fall in love with the main character so the author certainly succeeded thereAfter getting to know Paul we find that he has a run in with an old friend or someone he doesn t really remember really This leads to him attending a get together and meeting a lady friend whom he thinks he s way too good for but sees anyway This leads to inviting himself along on a trip with this group he s lied his way intoSo we have some things happen here and there We have Paul lying through his teeth at every chance he gets to interact with anyone it seems And we have myself wondering what in the heck is the point to the book by this point So we ll definitely say this is one that is a sloooooowwww burner which most that read my reviews know I usually have very little patience with so that on top of disliking the main character and not finding any other to connect with either really didn t help my opinionBut after all that is said I will say when eventually the entire idea of the book comes to focus to tie up the story at the end I actually kind of enjoyed it But when it took probably 90% to get to that section it was a tad too little too late to raise my rating and to be honest the wrap up felt a little rushed after the slowness of the rest of the story So this one just wasn t for me but others have enjoyed it so if a fan of a extremely slow building psychological thriller you may still want to give this one a shotI received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalleyFor reviews please visit

I have been holding on to this book for nearly 6 months and have no clue why I put it off for so long Being swamped with arcs has really put a damper on my reading for fun stack but I m glad that I made a goal this year to incorporate of my fun pile regardless of deadlines and reuests Though it took longer than I would have liked to get to it this book was a gripping read that held my attention from beginning to end I read my friend Jo s review and was worried I might not connect with the book as the main character is so unlikable but she assured me it was all part of the story and I m very glad I trusted her The book is under 300 pages and the pacing is uick and suspenseful that gorgeous cover really drew me in and just added bonus points to how much I loved this bookThere is a reason that the plot description is so vague and slim you really just want to read it without knowing anything prior This was a traditional psychological thriller with a slow building sense of dread like a spider building a web around it s prey and then by the time the victim is aware of the plan it s far too late to escape While I haven t read her second thriller I read the first titled Under Your Skin and while it was a bit predictable found it an enjoyable read with fleshed out characters Once again Durrant shows that her writing is high uality due to her excellent development of a character driven plot We get to know these friends well without loads of boring details included just to fluff up the page count Many aspects of the ending surprised me and I felt like the author did a fantastic job of setting everything up so that it connected well in the end and made senseI d highly recommend this thriller to readers who enjoy a British setting with a bit of Greece thrown in as well those who enjoy a building sense of dread in lieu of action packed scenes will thoroughly become engrossed in this read This is the type of book that makes me grateful for the people in my life that I know I can trust or can I It s the type of read you can blow through easily in a single sitting I found myself at the end of the book flipping back through to the beginning checking a few details I love it when a book causes me to do that Whether you bring it to the beach or a cabin by the fire this is the perfect read to take along on a vacation as it s easy to get lost in
