Living Lies Book Review


 About the Book

In the little town of Walton, Georgia, everybody knows your name--but no one knows your secret. At least that's what Lane Kent is counting on when she returns to her hometown with her five-year-old son. Dangerously depressed after the death of her husband, Lane is looking for hope. What she finds instead is a dead body.

Lane must work with Walton's newest deputy, Charlie Lynch, to uncover the truth behind the murder. But when that truth hits too close to home, she'll have to decide if saving the life of another is worth the cost of revealing her darkest secret.

Debut novelist Natalie Walters pulls you to the edge of your seat on the first page and keeps you there until the last in this riveting story that will have you believing no one is defined by their past. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

As a debut novel I am never sure what to expect. I love suspense and the cover pulled me in. I will say while the start of the book started out with a bang it slowly got less intriguing for me. I think the main issue is that I just didn't like the characters much. I liked the setting and the plot was alright but the characters were not for me. I appreciated the depression story line but the entire combination just didn't click with me. However I will be wanting to read her next novel as I think her writing is promising! Also, many others have loved this book so if you enjoy suspense, this could be the book for you. 
Three stars. 

"I received this book from Revell for free. All opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review."
