    Loved!!!!!

    What a wonderfully, beautifully written book. It was a real tear jerker. It had me in tears for days. This book was definitely different then her other dark hearted mystery books that she normally writes. I really thought she nailed it with this one. This book was about a woman and her children stuck in a dark past that shaped their future and how they all overcame it. A family trying to put back the pieces that were broken such a long time ago. It was a subject that we as society should talk more about. Violence is with us all but it’s how we deal with it that makes a difference. It was very near and dear to my heart. I want to start off by saying I normally do not read this type of book but the description had me hooked and I’m so glad it did. I finished this book in two days. I couldn’t stop reading, I was highly addicted to this book. As each chapter went on I couldn’t get enough n really felt each characters pain. It was an emotional roller coaster that I never wanted to end. The best part was all the confessions at the end. I couldn’t believe the twists. I did not see any of that coming. Wow, what a great ending to a great book. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Unputdownable!

    First time I’ve read a book by this author but it won’t be the last. I really enjoyed it and although it was difficult to read about domestic violence, drug addiction etc, there was always hope of lasting love. The many unexpected twists and turns kept me reading into the early hours.

    Rather boring

    The book was okay but very long and predictable. Also quite depressing. Not something to read during these trying times.

    Unforgettable

    This is a book which will be hard to put down and will stay with you long after. It is like watching a car wreck on the should of the road - you have to look no matter how uncomfortable or sad. I struggle to find the words to convey what I've read - it is intense, real, heartbreaking and almost unbearable. This should be required reading for anyone interested in human nature, psychology, sociology and the human condition.

    Heartbreakingly Brilliant

    Known for her work in the psychological thriller genre, The Lies We Tell is new territory for Susie in the literacy fiction world and she definitely nails it! There are not too many books that get under my skin and stay with me long after I have finished them, but this book really got to me and will be forever engrained in my memory. I will always be shouting it from the rooftops that you need to read this book when I’m asked for a recommendation on what to read! However, *Warning* Make sure you have the tissues handy though when reading this as you will need them! Susie has created a compelling and highly addictive story that took me hostage right from the start and completely blew me away. It is a story that involves domestic abuse (trigger warning) and its effects on not just only the victim, but how it also effects the children in the family and how it can shape them as adults. It is a compelling story that is also confronting but these moments are handled with sensitivity through beautiful writing. Although it is dark in parts, it is also a story about healing and love. Told from the perspective of the three main voices of Carol, Nicola and Richard, the story is told over the course of three different timeframes which I really enjoyed. I don’t want to say any more on the plot as I believe the blurb gives enough details and this is one best read without too much information on it. All of the characters have been developed perfectly and written so well in the parts that they play and are brought to life beautifully. It goes without saying that the standout character for me is definitely Carol. At times, it was quite difficult to read her parts of the story and my heart just went out to her. The inner strength she is able to find and her determination in trying to provide a better life and safe environment away from the despicable human being that is her husband while still dealing with his abuse, just made me in awe of her and the women who deal with this everyday in the real world. My heart just breaks to know that this happens and that there so many women that aren’t as lucky as Carol is in being able to escape from her abuser. Susie’s writing is absolutely flawless in this book. It is raw, engaging, fluid and highly emotive. I wasn’t joking when I said have the tissues ready. On a number of occasions throughout, I gave Kim Kardashian a run for her money in the ugly crying stakes, which just reinforces how beautifully written this book is and with Susie making you also feel a part of the story. Make sure you also read the acknowledgment at the end of this story where Susie explains how this story came about and how that experience impacted her. Although this is not a true story, I loved how Susie wrote this straight from the heart with compassion as for some readers this could really be their story. Susie Lynes you are a superstar and I absolutely adore your work and this book! You always raise the bar higher and higher with each book that you release and exceed all expectations every time. You truly are a gifted and insanely talented author. I love your psychological thrillers, but I do hope you will also write in this genre again and I can’t wait to see what you come up with next. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to read and review The Lies We Hide which I cannot recommend highly enough. Thank-you to NetGalley, Bloodhound Books and Susie Lynes for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Lies We Hide which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
