I felt this one dragged on a bit long and could have used some tightening up. The story is told from several viewpoints, first person as well as third, and bops along between each person's viewpoint for a little too long. The ending was a bit of a disappointment in many ways. However, still a decent read.

After reading I Let You Go, I was excited to read Let Me Lie. But. . .

I just couldn't get into it. I started the book a couple of times and put it aside. This morning I decided to either read it or bring it back to the library.

My recommendation is that y'all read the first few chapters until you get bored. Then, skip to chapter 24 on page 142 and brace yourself for the bombshell plot twist at the end of Part One. Chapters 24-26 have important clues. The only thing you might miss is that Uncle Billy loved Caroline first, and he's never gotten over her.

My plans for the afternoon got cancelled as I raced to finish the book before the start of the UW football game. Wow! This would have been a terrific book if the beginning had been as well-crafted and action-packed as the ending.

Will I read I See You? Dunno.

Excellent book! Her books are very complicated and yet easy to read. One of the better psychological thrillers recently read. Exciting to the very end.

This book was a great read. There were so many twists and turns right up to the very last page. This was my first time reading this author and I will be looking to read more.

Plot. New beginnings aren't immune to the past.

I really enjoyed all the twists and turns. Nothing is as it first seems and it is very easy to to make assumptions. Just when I thought everything was resolved, there's that end! Claire Mackintosh may be a little formulaic but if it works, why not?

I really loved the author's first book, I Let You Go. However, her two most recent novels have been a big disappointment. This book, like the others, was a quick and easy read, but the storyline was a bit convoluted and the conclusion felt like it did not add up in the end. I probably won't be reading any more of her books, sadly.

A thrilling read that keeps you on your toes, guessing at possible theories along the way. Some drastic plot changes along the way to keep things interesting. I couldn’t put the book down!
