    An atmospheric tale of obsession, secrets and lies

    Firstly, thanks to NetGalley, PenguinRandomHouse publishing and the author for the opportunity to preview Everything is Lies. This is an unusual book of obsession, lies and secrets and I enjoyed it. I don't want to say too much about the detail as part of my enjoyment came from knowing nothing before I started. It's an atmospheric tale about a young woman and her discovery, through notebooks, of her mother's life before she was born. I particularly enjoyed the 2 voices in the book; that of Sophia, the daughter and her mother, Nina and the threads that wove throughout the book, all coming together nicely at the end. A really good read.

    twisted

    And I felt so very sorry for Jared after the first few chapters. Lying in the hospital, near death, having survived a brutal attack with garden scissors. After the last chapter, though, I can honestly say: What a mean, deceiving ***hole. After 27 years, Nina finally finds the courage to take on her life and make changes. Maybe she would have thought twice, if she’d known that she would never start this new life and end up being accused of murder - suicide. I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Penguin UK!

    Everything is Lies

    Interesting to start, then seemed a bit contrived at times. Always difficult to understand the naivety of some people, but suppose it is a reality of some. Her character would have been more believable if she hadn’t been described later as being beautiful. A shy, but unattractive person would have made more sense. However, good cover to have parents so disjunction which helped in the illusion. I think it was good enough a read to pursue Helen’s next book.

    A great read

    Completely absorbing - but every so often I would disconcertingly be jarred back to reality by a reference Scottish Heritage. There is no such organisation, theres English Heritage OR Historic Scotland, NO Scottish Heritage. For my enjoyment it would have been so much better if a truly original name had been created - this just seems like a juvenile mistake and clangours and jars every time I come across it.
