Hi and welcome to my stop on Ronnie Turner’s Lies Between Us blog tour! I am absolutely OVER THE MOON to be a part of this tour. It is going to be epic!!
Check out how many awesome book bloggers are taking part, throughout October ⇓⇓⇓
Lies Between Us is a very cleverly written psychological thriller and one which is likely to stay with me for a long time to come. It’s hard to believe this is a debut novel!
I’m going to find it quite hard to review I think as I don’t want to give anything away and I’m pretty sure nothing I say will do this book the justice it deserves, but I hope I can convey how much I have enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone looking for a unique and compelling story in this genre.
The story is told from three perspectives. John is married to Jules and they have a little girl. Their life is a happy one until their daughter goes missing and they struggle to piece the clues together to find her, all the time being tortured with horrifying images sent by the kidnapper to make sure they suffer the worst thing any parent could possibly go through. They quickly realise this must be someone obsessed with John, looking for some kind of revenge, but who and why? He can’t think of anyone from his past who would be capable of such an horrendous act and time is running out.
Maisie is an ICU nurse, taking care of her current patient, Tim, who was attacked and left for dead. She gets caught up in the life of his family and friends, always wondering if there is more to their story than his wife seems willing to let on. Maisie also has her own difficulties and she’s an intriguing character. It was hard to see her significance to the story initially, but I still found myself intrigued by her and this family she is caring for.
Miller is a disturbing character. This is a child with some serious issues and his chapters made for uncomfortable reading, but he is fascinating and I couldn’t help being intrigued by him. The characterisation throughout this story is amazing!
I had SO many questions forming in my mind as I was reading this book as I had no idea where the story was going, although I had a feeling it would be nothing like I was imagining. It was clear the obvious was not going to be the truth, but finding out what on earth was going on and how these people could possibly be connected made for a very tense and exciting read. I’m pretty sure I held my breath towards the end and was absolutely blown away. Jaw dropping would be a bit of an understatement!
Excellent writing! I can’t wait to read whatever Ronnie Turner writes next.
Many thanks to the author and publisher for my ARC. I highly recommend!
