YOU KNOW SHE’S LYING . . . BUT SO ARE YOU

Two women are staying in Willowmead House.

One of them is running.
One of them is hiding.
Both of them are lying.


Emily made one bad decision, and now her career could be over. Her family home on the Cornish coast is the only place where she feels safe. But when she arrives, there’s a stranger living with her father. Emily doesn’t trust the beautiful young woman, convinced that she’s telling one lie after another.

Soon, Emily becomes obsessed with finding out the truth . . . But should some secrets stay buried forever?

I received a copy of this book from the publisher.

My Thoughts…

Emily is a midwife, dedicated but overworked, and when she makes a mistake, she runs to her Cornish childhood home. Her elderly father has dementia; she has avoided going home in the past, but now she has nowhere else. Francoise is her father’s carer. Her presence undermines Emily. Told from Emily and Francoise’s viewpoints, the reader is immersed in their emotions and motivation but are their perceptions of the situation reliable? Harold’s viewpoint from 1945 gives the reader insight into his younger self and the events that shaped his character.

The author builds a domestic world full of mistrust and simmering anger. All the characters are hard to empathise with at some point in the story. I enjoyed the detailed characterisation, the plot’s originality and the emotion woven into the story. The quality of the characters and clever plot twists make this an addictive domestic suspense.
