A special post for today, firstly a Happy Mother’s Day to all those mummies out there, I hope you’ve all had a lovely day! For today I am going to be sharing with you my thoughts on Those Who Lie by Diane Jeffrey. Hosted by the amazing Neverland Blog Tours, I am the seventh stop on the amazing Those Who Lie Book Tour.
Those Who Lie? Let me tell you a little bit about it;
Emily Klein doesn’t know she has killed her husband until the day of his funeral
At first, signs point to a tragic accident. Yet, as Emily pieces together the events before his death – events which led to her own memory loss – she begins to suspect that her husband’s death may have been the result of more than a terrible twist of fate…
But the accident is only the beginning. Because while Emily’s physical scars will heal, the trauma of the accident has awakened old ghosts. She hears strange sounds, catches things that can’t possibly be there in the corner of her eye. Before long, everywhere she looks, she seems to see her husband.
And suddenly, Emily finds herself asking the most dangerous question of all.
Can she really trust herself?
At first I was a little unsure about the book, as it’s not my style of reading but I thought I would give it a go! I actually fell in love with it and couldn’t put it down, there is so much suspense throughout the book, of course you don’t know much more than Emily knows. It’s amazing the changes you read, first it starts off being a murder mystery but then turns into something frightening, with murder, stalking and harassing.
I just couldn’t put the book down, I love Emily as a character, she truly doesn’t know what is going on in her life as everything keeps changing. There’s so many questions going around in her head, is it actually her husband she keeps seeing and who’s the one that is sending her mystery text messages. Of course the questions all get tied up in the end and I’m actually surprised!
As the reader you never received the full story, with things being hinted at but never confirmed. I loved the idea that you floated between the past and present, it helped you to understand why certain things was happening, it tied up all the lose ends. With Emily not understanding what was going on, it was hard to create a relationship to the other characters, as it seemed they were all some part of the mystery.
How about a little about the author, Diane Jeffery;
Diane grew up in North Devon. She lives in Lyon, France with her husband and their three children, black Labrador and kitten. Those Who Lie is her debut psychological thriller.
