This Is How I Lied

Title: This Is How I Lied

by Heather Gudenkauf 

Genre: Psychological Thriller

Pages:325

Rating: 4

Everyone has a secret they’ll do anything to hide…

Twenty-five years ago, the body of sixteen-year-old Eve Knox was found in the caves near her home in small-town Grotto, Iowa—discovered by her best friend, Maggie, and her sister, Nola. There were a handful of suspects, including her boyfriend, Nick, but without sufficient evidence the case ultimately went cold.

For decades Maggie was haunted by Eve’s death and that horrible night. Now a detective in Grotto, and seven months pregnant, she is thrust back into the past when a new piece of evidence surfaces and the case is reopened. As Maggie investigates and reexamines the clues, secrets about what really happened begin to emerge. But someone in town knows more than they’re letting on, and they’ll stop at nothing to keep the truth buried deep.

 

My thoughts

Would I recommend it? Yes, in fact I did this as a buddy read with some of the my friends when I told them I was reading it.

Would I read more by this author? Yes in fact I have have one other of her books of her's to read and that is Before She Was Found.

WOW what a great start to a new to me author, I should have already read her because as I said before I still have her other book Before She Was Found to  read, but after reading this one I can't wait to pick that one up and read it. This one had me from the start and it wouldn't let go, it seemed right from the start that everyone had a secret and that it was darker then the last one that was found out, so you couldn't tell who was telling the telling the truth or who to trust, and every time I thought I knew who the murder was something would come alone and there went that idea out the door. Another thing I liked was how it made you see the darkness in some of the characters which in turn made them creepy, with that said I wan to thank NetGalley for letting me read and review it .
