This Is How I Lied

Summary: Gudenkauf proves herself the master of the smart, suspenseful small-town thriller that gets right under your skin.” —Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of The Nanny

Everyone has a secret they’ll do anything to hide…

Twenty-five years ago, the body of sixteen-year-old Eve Knox was found in the caves near her home in small-town Grotto, Iowa—discovered by her best friend, Maggie, and her sister, Nola. There were a handful of suspects, including her boyfriend, Nick, but without sufficient evidence the case ultimately went cold.

For decades Maggie was haunted by Eve’s death and that horrible night. Now a detective in Grotto, and seven months pregnant, she is thrust back into the past when a new piece of evidence surfaces and the case is reopened. As Maggie investigates and reexamines the clues, secrets about what really happened begin to emerge. But someone in town knows more than they’re letting on, and they’ll stop at nothing to keep the truth buried deep.

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I think it was The Baking Bookworm that made me get really interested in reading this book. She had been talking it up quite a bit and I have enjoyed the Heather Gudenkauf books I have read- so I eagerly reached for my Kindle one night and began reading.


What I liked:

That cover is pretty spooky 🙂

How the story was told- we get to hear from Eve in the time before she is killed and see the how to unfold a little at a time.

The ending. I felt it was good and solid ending!


Bottom line: This book will keep you reading just to see how Eve’s final moments really play out….
