Lies She Told
By Cate Holahan
Reviewed by Heath Henwood
A trilling book that was hard to out down, once I got started. The first couple of chapters were confusing though, switching between Liza and the character in the book she is writing Beth. Once I got my head around the continual swapping, the book made more sense, and hooked me in.
The characters are well developed and believable. The plot generally flow along smoothly.
The book blurs the line between reality and fiction as the characters try to determine the truths of the lives around them.
Liza Jones has thirty days to write the thriller that could put her back on the bestseller list. In the meantime, she’s struggling to start a family with her husband, who is distracted by the disappearance of his best friend, Nick. With stresses weighing down in both her professional and her personal life, Liza escapes into writing her latest heroine.
