The Lie – CL Taylor

I know your name’s not really Jane Hughes… 

Jane Hughes has a loving partner, a job in an animal sanctuary and a tiny cottage in rural Wales. She’s happier than she’s ever been but her life is a lie. Jane Hughes does not really exist.

Five years earlier Jane and her then best friends went on holiday but what should have been the trip of a lifetime rapidly descended into a nightmare that claimed the lives of two of the women.

Jane has tried to put her past behind her but someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Jane and everything she love.

My Review: This was a gripping psychological thriller examining the fragility of friendship between 4 young women each emotionally damaged in their own way. I literally could not put this book down and read it within a day whilst cooking and stayed up most of the night to finish it. CL Taylor has a fabulous talent of describing places and people which meant that I could visualise everything as I read it. Highly recommend this book.
