Review: Every Last Lie
Title: Every Last Lie
Author: Mary Kubica
Publication Date: June 27, 2017
Genre: Psychological Thriller/Suspense
Recommended If You Like: psychological suspense, family-driven drama, use of flashbacks
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review itself.
Clara's seemingly perfect life is turned upside down when her husband dies in a car crash. Their young daughter, miraculously physically unharmed, seems to remember something from the crash that suggests it wasn't an accident, but a murder.
What I Liked:
Kubica always does an excellent job of exploring the complexities of human relationships. Her characters are never one-dimensional, and neither are their connections to each other.
There are lots of twists and turns in this read, which definitely keeps up the suspense. The use of flashbacks ups the ante even more.
Anything I Didn't Like?
This book did seem to move at a slower pace than I would have liked. Kubica's The Good Girl predominately took place in one isolated location, and it still had a much quicker and more engaging pace.
While this is not the best book I've read in this genre, it is still a quick and interesting read. Kubica is a really good author, so even her books that aren't her best work are still good.
