Book review: Seven Lies

By Elizabeth Kay
Published by Little, Brown

Synopsis: Jane and Marnie have been inseparable since they were eleven years old. They have a lot in common. In their early twenties they both fell in love and married handsome young men.

But Jane never liked Marnie's husband. He was always so loud and obnoxious, so much larger than life. Which is rather ironic now, of course.

Because if Jane had been honest - if she hadn't lied - then perhaps her best friend's husband might still be alive…

How did this book end up in my hands? I read a serialisation of this novel via The Pigeonhole app, which I am ever so grateful to.

Was it a page-turner? I almost tripped over the words in my rush to read on! Hadn’t this been a serialisation, it definitely would not have taken me 7 days to finish reading it. Although 7 days for 7 lies has a good ring to it!

Did the book meet my expectations? I don’t think I expected something quite so breath-taking! Jane is an extremely interesting character and – despite her actions – I didn’t find it in myself to dislike her… which has me quite worried about the kind of person I am! 

Three words to describe it. Twisted. Addictive. Unputdownable.

Do I like the cover? Yes, it’s remarkably bold, just like the book itself.

Have I read any other books by the same author? This is author’s debut novel and I genuinely can’t wait to read what she writes next.
