The call comes on an ordinary Sunday afternoon to say your sister has been admitted to hospital with a serious head injury. But you don’t have a sister… do you?

You’ve never doubted your parents. You’ve loved them without question your whole life. But your stepmother is uncharacteristically speechless, and your father isn’t well enough to understand.

So you get in your car.

Turn the key in the ignition.

Knowing everything behind you is a lie.

Not knowing what lies ahead: the truth… or something far darker?

A deliciously dark and twisty tale of deception, secrets and family ties, The Liar’s Daughter is perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, The Woman in the Window and The Family Upstairs.

My Review:

Wow! This book will grab you and not let you go until the very last page, it is so compelling and addictive.

I absolutely love Rona Halsall’s books, but I think this one is the best one yet. If I had the misfortune to have to put it down and return to real life for a while, I found myself thinking about it, and trying to figure it out, and guess what would happen next.

There are some books that are so difficult to review, because the plot is so twisty that you might give something away. This is one of those books. Everything was screaming at me that Eva was making a mistake taking off to meet the sister that she’d never known. The whole atmosphere is tense and creepy from the moment she arrives. The isolated location, the spooky farmhouse, even the weather contributes to the eerie feeling.

The plot has three sections, I can’t say anymore than that for fear of spoiling it, but it will make your head spin! There is absolutely no way of second-guessing this plot, and the short chapters kept me turning the pages relentlessly. I just could not put it down.

A dark and compulsive read, with such a multi-layered plot and authentic characters, this book is an absolute must-read for anyone who enjoys a thrilling, twisty and chilling book. It will blow you away.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Author Bio:

Rona lives on the Isle of Man with her husband, two dogs and three guinea pigs. She has been a bookworm since she was a child and now she’s actually creating stories of her own, which still feels like a dream come true. 

She is an outdoorsy person and loves stomping up a mountain, walking the coastal paths and exploring the wonderful beaches on the Island while she’s plotting how to kill off her next victim. She also makes sure she deletes her Google history on a regular basis, because… well, you can’t be too careful when you spend your life researching new and ingenious ways for people to die.

She has three children and two step-children who are now grown up and leading varied and interesting lives, which provides plenty of ideas for new stories!
