Sabine Durrant ´ 5 Summary

Nd you by the time you start to realise that however painful the truth might be it's the lies that cause the real damage well by then it could just be too late Longlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Shortlisted for the British Book Awards Crime Novel of the Year. This book is the definition of a slow burn Though it was meandering along it kept my attention because I needed to know exactly where it was going While not my usual kind of book I m glad I read it mostly because of that ending which was unexpected My armchair detective skills fail me again I d definitely recommend considering the pace of this book before you pick it up It s of a character study than a thriller and it won t keep you on the edge of your seat but it is interesting It features a large and uniue cast of characters I often read stories with a female protagonist who is damaged but likeable so reading a story with a middle aged male character who is very hard to appreciate was something new He made me literally shake my head sometimes He s pervy manipulative and seems to be a bit of a pathological liar Will you root for him Probably not If you listen to Paul Morris you ll assume a lot of things because he ll tell you He s successful well off a celebrated author good looking intelligent sexy While his looks have granted him some luck with the ladies in his life he s not successful and is in fact between places to stay as a middle aged man He gets by with help from friends and when that fails manipulating new ones He almost seems to have no conscience seducing a widow for a place to stay and creature comforts while admiring the body of her seventeen year old daughter What a skeez It s not long before he manipulates his latest conuest into giving him an invitation to vacation in Greece with her family and friends and lie piles on top of lie He s basically making things up as he goes along making it hard to keep track of who he s told what This vacation isn t a normal one however It s the ten year anniversary of the disappearance of a teenage girl The group was there when it happened and widow Alice has made it a personal crusade to find out what happened to young Jasmine and who is responsible Tensions are high and this is bound to be a vacation no one in the group will forget I received a copy of this book from Net Galley and Mulholland Books thank you My review is honest and unbiased

Wow talk about a SLOWWWWW read Surprise Surprise I am in the minority again on this bookLie With Me by Sabine Durrant sounded like a compelling and addicting read that I had to get my hands on Well my hands were greedy and not pleased to say the least Honestly I feel like this is going to be a book that you love or completely hate I unfortunately am in the dislike categoryPaul our main character yikes What a womanizer and an ass wipe Can we say Paul I m not exactly sure what came out of your mouth that wasn t a lie But props to the author because I think this was her intention for the readers to hate the main character Paul is introduced the story and he runs into an old friend The old friend invites him to a get together and Paul ends up meeting another fellow lady at the get together Paul selfishly invites himself on a road trip with this group and lies his way into everything I was asking myself seriously what the point is this After the final reveal at the end I just wasn t having it It felt extremely rushed at the end with the amount of boredom in 85 percent of the book 2 stars for me on this one I think if you have the patience and are a fan of slow building thrillers then this may be the book for you Overall I cannot recommend this one and it was just not for me This is solely my opinion Thank you so much to Netgalley and the publisher for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest reviewPublication date 11118Posted to GR 12118
