Behind Every Lie
Summary: From the author of The Night Olivia Fell—an “emotionally charged mystery” (Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author)—comes a thrilling new suspense novel about the insidious nature of family secrets…and their deadly potential.
If you can’t remember it, how do you prove you didn’t do it?
Eva Hansen wakes in the hospital after being struck by lightning and discovers her mother, Kat, has been murdered. Eva was found unconscious down the street. She can’t remember what happened but the police are highly suspicious of her.
Determined to clear her name, Eva heads from Seattle to London—Kat’s former home—for answers. But as she unravels her mother’s carefully held secrets, Eva soon realizes that someone doesn’t want her to know the truth. And with violent memories beginning to emerge, Eva doesn’t know who to trust. Least of all herself.
Told in alternating perspectives from Eva’s search for answers and Kat’s mysterious past, Christina McDonald has crafted another “complex, emotionally intense” (Publishers Weekly) domestic thriller. Behind Every Lie explores the complicated nature of mother-daughter relationships, family trauma, and the danger behind long-held secrets.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
After loving The Night Olivia Fell, I’ve kept Christina McDonald on my radar.
I’m going to admit that I did not love Behind Every Lie like I did The Night Olivia Fell, but BEL is still worth reading.
What I Liked:
The cover. It’s interesting and eye-catching.
The secrets and dynamic between Eva and Kat. Mother/daughter relationships are goldmines for drama and this was no exception.
Bottom line: I would def recommend you check this book out- especially if mom/daughter stories are your jam.
