Sorry for posting later than normal, but I haven’t had the chance to sit down in front of my laptop much recently. August has been a whirlwind. Schools go back this week in Scotland! The summer holidays are coming to an end and everything still feels strange – I also hate the phrase ‘new normal’ but it does describe our new everyday life.
I was delighted to be asked to join the blog tour for One White Lie by Leah Konen. I read a lot of thrillers. Thrillers seem to have dominated my reading of 2020 and I love them. And I am surprised by how often I am still surprised by twists and turns – but I am. And One White Lie was good – or at least it is so far because I haven’t quite finished it.
Argh… that seems to be the story of my life **dramatically wipes forehead** Too little reading time and so many great books to read!
I knew I wanted to read One White Lie as soon as I read the synopsis (below) – I think it is one of the better synopsis I’ve read recently and I love the Imagine/What if element of it – it is CLEVER.
IT’S ONLY ONE SMALL LIE . . . UNTIL SOMEONE TURNS UP DEAD
2020’S MOST GRIPPING DEBUT PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER, perfect for fans of Samantha Downing, Rachel Caine or Shari Lapena’s The Couple Next Door
Imagine you’ve finally escaped the worst relationship of your life, running away with only a suitcase and a black eye.
Imagine your new next-door neighbours are the friends you so desperately needed – fun, kind, empathetic, very much in love.
Imagine they’re in trouble. That someone is telling lies about them, threatening their livelihoods – and even their lives.
Imagine your ex is coming for you.
If your new best friends needed you to tell one small lie, and all of these problems would disappear, you’d do it . . . wouldn’t you?
It’s only one small lie, until someone turns up dead . . .
And so far One White Lie has a clever plot, great writing, short and snappy exciting chapters and I am invested in the lives of the characters. ALL OF WHICH IS GREAT.
One White Lie by Leah Konen is an easy book to want to read and I am trying to squeeze in as many chapters as possible around a very busy life. I can’t wait to have a solid afternoon to sit down and finish it because I am sure the ending is going to deliver a great twist.
Have you read it? Do you want to?
I also love the title – I feel that it is so simple yet it catches my attention! It’s good, right?
I received a copy of One White Lie by Leah Konen for review from the publisher – Thank you!
Now I am off to finish reading it…
