    Not the most thrilling but extremely enjoyable.

    I was sent an eARC of this book from Netgalley to give a full and honest review. For a thriller that turned out not to actually be much of a thriller, I actually really enjoyed this book. This book centres around two women, Stella and Eve, and with alternating chapters we find out just how much their lives are intertwined and how history has a way to catch up with you. Part of this book was set in Newcastle which is the city I grew up and and absolutely love. The vivid descriptions of the quayside and especially the Baltic added so much to the story for me and I kept hoping it would go back to that setting. The reason I didn't find this book as thrilling as I thought it was going to be is because I did predict the biggest plot twists quite early. However this didn't deter me from wanting to devour this book. I was still anticipating just as much for the big reveal as I would have if I didn't know. I was so happy that the ending was... not over the top happy but left me feeling satisfied. I've read many thrillers and mysteries recently where a plot twist will be thrown in at the very end and leave an open ending which I really don't like. This book gave me closure to the story and I will happily read any of Chris Currans work.

    Not The Best

    So, here’s the deal. I wanted to like this book. I really did. But, sadly, I didn’t. I mean it was a horrible book. There was some page turning suspense and wondering what was going to happen, especially the very begininng. However, the writing style fell flat for me. One minute we were reading Eve’s part of the story and next was Stella, right in the middle of the chapters. Another minute we were reading about Maggie, Ben, and David and how they fit into the story. It got way too discombobulating and by the end of the story, I was left back pedaling trying to find out what I just read and why it ended the way it. However, that is just my opinion. I do encourage you to read this as it may be one that you would enjoy and find the writing style is good. I will, in the future, try more books from this author as even authors can have some off days. This is a high 2.5 star rounded up to a 3 rating for me. *I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley, Killer Reads (Harper Collins) and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.*

    Wow! What a read

    Thank-you to #HarperCollins and #Killerreads as well as #Netgalley for giving me the opportunity of being able to read an advance copy of this book. A great read with a twist that I did not see coming! This is the first book I have read from Chris Curran and it won’t be the last. I was hooked from the start and I was caught between wanting to find out the answers but also not wanting it to end. So many twists and turns as well as lies and deceit kept me gripped until the end. An email from a friend to the main character Eve, who was adopted not long after her birth, sparks this whole journey when she sends Eve a link to a story on an artist named Stella Carr who bears a remarkable resemblance to herself. Confronting her adoptive parents, she soon comes to the realisation that her life with them has been a lie. Chris tells the story through a dual narrative, which I enjoyed, giving the reader insight into Stella’s life then taking us back to Jill’s life in the present day where she tries to put together all of the pieces. But with so many lies and deceit being uncovered who is Jill to believe? The more that she discovers, the more she could be putting her life as well as her new born baby’s in danger. This is a great psychological thriller that I highly recommend.

    loved it

    Title: All the little lies Author: Chris Curran Genre: thriller February 15th 2019 After a lifetime of secrets how far would you go for the truth? An unputdownable new psychological thriller, full of twists you won’t see coming, from Chris Curran. Your whole life has been a lie… One email is all it takes to turn Eve’s world upside down. It contains a picture of her true birth mother, Stella, and proves that Eve’s entire life with her adoptive parents has been a lie. Now she must unravel the mystery of Stella’s dark past. But what Eve finds will force her to take enormous risks, which put her – and her new-born baby – in immediate danger My thoughts Rating:5 Would I recommend it?yes Would I read anything else by this author? yes first off the story is told in two different narrators Eve and Stella, so you get Eve's story as well as the back story of Stella ,and a mystery , As Eve finds out more about her mother ,she starts to see the people in her life in a hole new light , as the more she learns about Stella , the more it becomes clear that there is more to the story then what people are telling her , because more dark secrets and lies come out in the oping , you begin to wounder if Stella's death was an accident or if it was murder. Not only that but you start to wounder about Eve as well because strange things start to happen when she's along with her new born baby.So to find out what you have to read the book yourself . With that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion.

    Good Story

    Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me to read this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I mostly enjoyed this book. You go between the two main characters - Stella, the mother from the past and then Eve, the daughter from the current time. I definitely find myself wanting to dive back in to see what happened, which is always a good sign the book is doing its job! The story was slow at parts but I did enjoy the characters.& felt a connection with them. The husband could have been a bit more developed - some of the details regarding him seemed extraneous. I did figure out the end before it happened but still very much enjoyed the story. Plus, I figured it out later than I usually do for most books - as it was happening - so I'd still call that a win for the author. If the author chose to do another book that included the story of what happened after the fire, I would love to read it to see where the character went during that time (beyond what is mentioned).
