One of Us is Lying by Shalini Boland

I’m so pleased to be part of the book tour today for this amazing book. Thanks to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Tia never harmed anyone. So why does someone want to destroy her?

Tia is walking home with her children, along the lakeside of their quiet, safe town, when she realises something is wrong with her five-year-old daughter, Rosie. She seems troubled, not at all her usual happy self.
But when Tia finally coaxes Rosie to open up, she wishes she hadn’t. Because her sweet daughter asks a question Tia never thought she’d hear.

‘Why did you kill someone?’
Tia knows how rumours spread around her small town. She just can’t understand who would have shared such a horrible story. Or why.
It can’t have anything to do with what happened. Only her two best friends really remember that…
Tia thought she could trust Fiona and Kelly with her life. They’ve been through so much together. But when she’s sent photos of herself that could tear her whole world apart, she starts to wonder. Someone is determined to punish her. But who? And will her friends stand by her, or will the past destroy all of their lives?

From the million-copy-bestselling author of The Secret Mother and The Perfect Family, this absolutely addictive psychological thriller is guaranteed to make you gasp. If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and Big Little Lies this book is for you.

My Review:

What a compelling thriller this book is!

There’s an almost surreal and dreamlike atmosphere created by the setting, and initial pace of the book. Ashridge Falls is so beautiful, but almost too perfect to be true. And Tia, Fiona and Kelly seem to have it all. But beneath the surface, each of them has a secret, and suddenly someone seems to be using these secrets against them.

The cleverly woven plot flicks between the points of view of all three of them, interspersed with a flashback from the past, we don’t know who this relates to until nearer the end. The short chapters make this an impossible book to put down.

As the pace increases and the tension builds, it grips the reader even more. I stayed up late to finish this one, I just couldn’t wait to find out the ending.

I love Shalini Boland’s books, and they just keep getting better and better. Can’t recommend it highly enough. Superb.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
