What a fabulous thriller Secrets, lies and betrayal The perfect, juicy recipe The twists in this book take you in directions you could never imagine So good Ethan returns home to find his wife Sutton, missing After exhausting all connections with friends and family, he s at a complete loss Should he take the next logical step and call the police Or just keep looking on his own After all, isn t the husband the first one on the police radar when a spouse goes missing Ethan also has an image to protect he s a best selling author His current project is based on his wife, and in fact, their life Probably a mere coincidence right Hhmmm.Told in two time lines THEN When Ethan and Sutton were first falling in love NOW When their marriage is falling apart He said she said Who hasto hide More to lose There are so manylayers of deception that will keep you guessing right to the end I thought I had it all figured out, too A couple times, in fact Ha Hope you will end up with the same surprise I had Highly recommended for all thriller fans A traveling sister read with Norma, Brenda and Susanne Thank you to NetGalley, HQ Digital and J.T Ellison for an advanced copy to review in exchange for an honest review.For this review and our full traveling sister review please visit Brenda and Norma s Fantastic Traveling Sister Book Blog ONE STARMy official first book to finish in 2018, but I actually started this freak show in 2017 So, I m mentally tossing it in my smallish pile of 2017 disappointments I have got to start my reading challenge on apositive note I m at a complete loss as to the rave reviews this book has received I believe the author was trying for a shock factor and she succeeded in garnering some early excitement A hollow victory, the book is not worth reading and will not stand the test of time or months.Hey, no one loves plot twiststhan me But, just because a story has outrageous twists from every direction does not make it interesting Plot twists must be executed correctly to work And this book fails miserably Not since Behind Her Eyes has a twisty book gotten me so cranky The twists are so ridiculous and convoluted in LIE TO ME that they have the opposite intended effect The curve balls in this story wear you down to numbness I truly felt nothing after each increasingly, shocking reveal Twists should be supported by narrative and evidence, maybe even hinted at with foreshadowing In this way the reader does not feel cheated when the plot twist is revealed A badly supported twist only makes the author appear lazy I mean, heck, just pull anything out of the air and throw it in the kitchen sink This novel is all over the place and uses every plot device known to mankind I seriously do not think the author left out a single whodunnit cliche It s never a good sign when you constantly check to see how manyhours are left on your audiobook This is a long ass book I did listen to the entire thing, right to the stupid ending, hoping for a nugget of something believability Nada Those are 11 hours and 36 minutes I will never get back So many characters and I could not conjure a connection to a single one Sad.Psychological suspense is my go to genre Yes, this genre is for entertainment purposes But, dear fiction writers, please do not assume that readers are so hungry for amusement as to buy into any trash you put out there We do have brains and we like to use them while reading Even in this genre.SMART PEOPLE READ Thank you for letting me preach a minute I m bracing for the disagreements now The world breaks everyone, and afterwards, some are strong at the broken places Ernest Hemingway and some are just broken Lie to Me opens with the words You aren t going to like me very much Truly, you are going to despise me I am the rot that lives in the floorboards of your house I am the spider that shuttles away when you shine a light in my corner, ever watching, ever waiting I am the shard of glass that slits the skin of your bare foot I am all the bad things that happen to you I was hooked from the first page Sutton and Ethan Montclair both love and hate each other Their jealousy and rivalry is both personal and professional On the anniversary of the death of their baby, Sutton disappears Was Sutton Montclair responsible for her baby s death Or was it Ethan Did she kill the baby, lose her mind, fake her own death, set up her husband Or has Ethan orchestrated the whole thing to make her look mentally unstable People have done worse.I love the writing style The chapters are short, gritty and to the point Chapter titles not numbers are enticing eg DID SHE OR DIDN T SHE The pace of Lie To Me by J.T Ellison is frantic It doesn t allow you to draw a breath It twists and turns and twists again Every time I thought I was even close to sorting it all out, Ellison would turn everything on its head It was like trying to read a kaleidoscope the picture kept changing, but it was never pretty I told you at the beginning you weren t going to like me very much You really don t like me right now, do you Am I a horrible person A loathsome creature You bet I m evil to the core And I warned you I warned you, and you didn t listen And now a warning from me don t miss reading this book Lie to Me must be one of, if not THE best psychological thriller of 2017.Thank you to Harlequin Australia via Netgalley for providing a digital copy of Lie To Me by J.T Ellison for review All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
