Happy Friday, all! Today I am super excited to share my review of another book I group read, The Lies We Told by Camilla Way publishing on October 9, 2018 by Berkley.

My Thoughts:

I am double checking my review by the synopsis so I do not risk any spoilers. You deserve to have every bit of this book to discover for yourself should you decide to read it!

What you absolutely need to know: 

Clara is dating Luke, and he vanishes. Most everyone believes he has just walked out on her, but Clara thinks otherwise. The small clues he left behind point to a possible stalker. 

Emma, Luke’s older sister, who also vanished, but twenty years earlier, is now present and attempting to help Clara find Luke. She won’t tell anyone where she’s been or even what happened. 

Somehow Luke’s disappearance in the present, and Emma’s in the past, are connected. The convergence is masterful! 

Camilla Way weaves a sticky spider web from the start. I was caught in the web, feeling its tension, due to the massively addictive plot line and exceptional pacing. I took a peek at Lies We Told much earlier than when I could actually read it, and I had the shakes putting it down. I needed to pick it back up and find out what happened. I don’t get the shakes often! 😂 

Huge kudos to Way! I am on board for Watching Edie and any other book she writes!

Thanks to Berkley for the physical ARC. All opinions are my own. 


The highly acclaimed author of Watching Edie returns with a new novel of dark psychological suspense that explores how those closest to us have the most to hide…

When Clara’s boyfriend, Luke, disappears, everyone believes that he’s left her, but Clara thinks she knows the truth. Recent evidence suggests that Luke had a stalker, and Clara worries that he’s been kidnapped. Then Luke’s older sister, Emma, who vanished twenty years ago, suddenly reappears.

Emma wants to help Clara with her search for Luke, but she refuses to talk about what happened–even though it nearly destroyed her family when she vanished. And the deeper Clara digs into Luke’s mysterious disappearance, the more convinced she is that the two incidents are connected.
