The truth is, we all tell lies... take a deep breath and get ready for the most twisty, tense and unsettling book of the summer. 'If, like me, you have been longing for a psycho-thriller of genius since you finished Gone Girl, then the wait is finally over. There are very few books in this world that are impossible to put down. Lie With Me is one of them.' Tony ParsonsIt starts with a lie. The kind we've all told - to a former acquaintance we can't quite place but still, for some reason, feel the need to impress. The story of our life, embellished for the benefit of the happily married lawyer with the kids and the lovely home.And the next thing you know, you're having dinner at their house, and accepting an invitation to join them on holiday - swept up in their perfect life, the kind you always dreamed of...Which turns out to be less than perfect. But by the time you're trapped and sweating in the relentless Greek sun, burning to escape the tension all around 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.… (mer)

From the title, it's obviously clear that the reader is about to be plunged into a web of lies but what isn't clear is how intricate this story is. The characters are all introduced and first impressions are made but nothing is quite what it seems. This really is a unique book, I can't believe how much I enjoyed it when I didn't like one single character - that's the whole charm and addictive nature of the book.

Paul Morris is THE most shallow and deceitful man I have come across in a book. He is mean, selfish and lies every time he opens his mouth. He thinks he has landed on his feet when he meets Alice and pretty much invites himself to her friends and family gathering at her villa in Greece. Paul arrives later than the other guests after meeting with his publisher (not) and taking a late BA flight (not) and you really get the impression, even if he doesn't, that he is a bit of an unwanted guest. There just seems to be an air of tension around the place which is exacerbated by the 10 year anniversary of the disappearance of a 13 year old girl, Jasmine.

When another girl on the island gets attacked, I had several suspects in mind. All the time wondering what had happened to Jasmine 10 years ago and whether it was linked to this attack. The common denominator being the same group of guests on the island...yes, Paul was also there 10 years ago. Will we ever be able to separate the truth from the lies?

Sabine Durrant, you got me! I was played like a fiddle and completely sucked in, leaving me wide eyed and open-mouthed at the end. Lie With Me is a very clever book, you don't realise how hooked you are until you try to put it down.

I received this book from the publisher, Mulholland Books, via Bookbridgr in exchange for an honest review. ( )

very enjoyable, even though the protagonist is not really likeable ( )

What an absolute triumph of a novel. Character based fiction at its very best, narrated by the sort of unsavoury character you are never sure whether to trust or not. It’s got it all - a taut, incisive writing style, tension, suspense, and a bit of Mediterranean sun to provide some escapism in a murky December. The ending has everything fitting into place beautifully: not a thing was wasted. I had supposed this author was a purveyor of chick-lit, but I was so wrong. Just wow - one of my reads of the year.

A well laid out plot that intrigues and delivers.
