You guys! I’m so excited to be an official stop on the blog tour for Lies, Lies, Lies, by Adele Parks, which releases….today! And even more exciting? I’ve got the goods for you on this one (thanks to the fine folks at MIRA Books.)
Lies, Lies, Lies is a full of, well, lies. It’s an excellent cautionary tale of what happens when you maybe keep a few minor details hidden from your spouse. Okay, maybe these lies weren’t so minor, but you’ll see. Rather than have me go on and on about this one, I’m going to let it speak for itself.
Read an excerpt here.
Still need more? Check out a Q&A with Adele Parks here. I told you I had the goods. Side note, in her Q&A, Parks talks about her latest favorite read she brings up The Guest List by Lucy Foley which is sitting half read on my nightstand right now as I type. So funny!
Let’s get to my review!
From the Publisher:
After years together, the arrival of longed-for daughter Millie sealed everything in place. They’re a happy little family of three.
So what if Simon drinks a bit too much sometimes—Daisy’s used to it. She knows he’s just letting off steam. Until one night at a party things spiral horribly out of control. And their happy little family of three will never be the same again.
In Lies, Lies, Lies, #1 Sunday Times bestselling author Adele Parks explores the darkest corners of a relationship in free fall in a mesmerizing tale of marriage and secrets.
Lies, Lies, Lies starts out innocently enough. We meet Daisy and Simon. They seem like a fine couple, on the surface. And it isn’t until we spend a bit of time with them that we realize, all is not okay under the surface. Not at all. And I loved the way their relationship was written, because that’s so real life. We can hide things and justify, but eventually, “it” hits the fan.
So one little lie, turns into quite a big lie. And the fallout compounds upon itself. And still, no one talks about it. They sweep the issues under the rug, where they simmer, and grow, and become bigger and bigger and bigger.
There actually isn’t much I can say here, because no spoilers. But I can tell you that this one isn’t your typical quick read. It’s a page turner, but it follows Daisy and Simon for not days or months, but years. And it all comes to a shocking conclusion. This one is meaty and long, but pays off long after you read the last page.
