The Lie She Told
All Kate wanted was a peaceful life.All Ryan wanted to do was destroy it. Living in the remote Scottish Highlands under Witness Protection, life is finally happy for Kate Ward and her young son Joe, until someone from Kate’s past appears. Ryan Albright is the only person that knows all of Kate’s secrets, and what she had to do to escape her previous abusive relationship. Ryan is determined to complete the mission set for him by Kate’s ex-husband. Systematically and violently, he pulls Kate’s new world apart with devasting consequences for everyone around him, including Kate who must face up to the lie she told.
A thriller set in the Highlands of Scotland which for me is always such a great setting. The story follows Kate and her son Joe, who move there after her husband is jailed. Their life in their new home seems to be going well until a face from the past appears, Ryan. I thought the book had a great sense of location, it was well-paced and the plot flowed well. I like tension throughout and this book had that for me. I didn’t like the character – Ryan but it was his presence that kept the tension in the plot and for me this was a great thriller and one I would recommend. As the title states there is a lie which has been told and I enjoyed the reading journey to see how the story wrapped up in the end.
4 stars from me.
