BLOG TOUR: The Lies We Tell - Jane Corry

Sarah always thought of herself and her husband, Tom, as good people. But that was before their son Freddie came home saying he'd done something terrible. Begging them not to tell the police.

Soon Sarah and Tom must find out just how far they are willing to push themselves, and their marriage, to protect their only child . . .

As the lies build up and Sarah is presented with the perfect opportunity to get Freddie off the hook, she is faced with a terrifying decision . . .

Save her son . . . or save herself?

What did I think?

I love Jane Corry books as you're never quite sure what's going to happen next and that's definitely the case with her latest page-turner, The Lies We Tell.  Bursting with secrets and lies, there's an underlying tension throughout as the full picture is gradually revealed over the course of the novel.

Sarah and Tom have a marriage built on lies but love for their son has held them together...until one more lie threatens to tear them apart.  It's clear that they got married far too quickly without fully knowing each other inside out so Tom really does only have himself to blame.  I did feel sorry for him though as it felt like he was the third wheel in the family when their much longed for son Freddie came along.

At each twist and turn of the story, you can't help but wonder what you would have done in the same circumstances.  It's a mother's instinct to protect her child but at what cost?  Sarah is used to lying and burying secrets so one more lie isn't going to hurt, but it's never just's called a web of lies for a reason!  

Reading The Lies We Tell is like opening Pandora's Box as no-end of secrets and lies erupt from the page with earth-shattering consequences in this amazing page-turner from Jane Corry.  It's quite a chunky book at 512 pages but I read it much more quickly than I expected as I couldn't wait to discover every single secret it had hidden.

Tense, gripping and constantly asking the question: 'what would you do?', The Lies We Tell is another quality novel from the pen of Jane Corry.  I was hooked from the start and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I received an ARC to read and review for the blog tour; this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
