  • Clever plot twists

    Joelys husband, Callum, has just left her for her best friend, taking their daughter with them. She is offered a job with an eccentric reclusive author, to ghost write her memoirs. Grateful to have some time away from her own troubles, she takes the job, which is well off the beaten track in Devon. Freda, her client, seems to have revenge in mind, wanting to right wrongs from the past. Joely gets sucked into the story, trying to second guess where it’s going, but then things become very personal. There are some very clever plot twists in this book, which is very well written, and descriptive. I’m not sure that I would be quite as forgiving as Joely and her family, and I can’t feel much sympathy for Freda. However, a good read. Thanks to netgalley and the publishers for an ARC in return for an honest review.

  • Stylish & Spectacular

    😊 I always look forward to a novel written by Susan Lewis, knowing that I will be reading something pretty spectacular and I won't want to put it down. My Lies, Your Lies is a well written, emotionally-charged story, with the author's trademark flair and style. This is a drama based tale about ghost writer Joely, whose husband Callum leaves her for her best friend Martha. She is delighted to be given a writing assignment in Devon, so she can move away from London. An established author, F.M. Donahue, wants to tell her story to Joely, one that has haunted her for years. As Freda Donahue's memoirs start to feature a relationship between a young student and her teacher, so Joely starts to feel more and more uncomfortable with the situation. Is there something more to the memoirs and why was Joely chosen as the ghost writer? Told through different timelines dating back to 1968 and the present, and with its perfect pacing, there was never a dull moment. The dynamics of a dysfunctional family combined with a heady cocktail of passion, love, deceit, betrayal, lies, loss and duplicity among others, helped to make a captivating tale. One of Susan Lewis' strengths is her incredibly good characterisation - the blend of likeable, odd and obnoxious characters, with their vagaries and complexities was remarkable. The clarity of her writing made it an easy story-line to follow, and she was able to create a wonderful tones of doubt and unease that continued until the very last page. I loved the way the finer points of the story were sporadically fed to the reader as the story built to its satisfying conclusion. My Lies, Your Lies is an addictive, intricate and clever tale that highlights the complex relationships that often exist where emotional boundaries occasionally become blurred. An awesome book and a truly rewarding read! 😊 I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel at my request from HarperCollins UK, HarperFiction via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion. Thank you also to Pigeonhole and Susan Lewis for the opportunity to read this book!

  • a five-star read that will lie to you

    My Lies, Your Lies by Susan Lewis a five-star read that will lie to you. Susan Lewis always tells us a great story, but this time she told a great story, the intrigue, the mystery and twists will keep you guessing and wondering if you know left from right. Keep going with this story if like me the first chunk feels a little draggy and droll like, do not give up. As it just gets better and better till boom, you have been reading for hours without a drink or anything to eat and you finish feeling wrung out and wondering where you are. If you enjoy a good story, and great writing then pick this one up.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Very nearly five stars

    A very different sort of story - or at least differently told. Compulsive reading but the ending disappointed me, unless, of course, there is a follow-up to answer the unanswered questions.
