Sometimes I Lie

ISBN:  9781250144843

Publisher: Flatiron 

Publication Date: 3/13/2018

Format: Hardcover 

My Rating: 5 Stars

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me: 

1. I’m in a coma. 
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore. 
3. Sometimes I lie. 


Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?

Praise

 

“A serpentine tale of betrayal, madness, and murder.... Feeney is definitely a writer to watch.” ―Publishers Weekly

 

“Faster and more twisted than a roller coaster with an ending that’ll make your stomach drop, Alice Feeney’s Sometimes I Lie is not to be missed. I loved it!” ―Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl and Every Last Lie

 

“A gripping debut with a brilliant twist, I LOVED it!” ―BA Paris, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors

 

 

 

“I read this in one compulsive gulp in one day. It’s SO fiendishly clever―an absolute masterclass in plotting and narrative design.” ―Richard Skinner, author of The Mirror

 

“A bold and original voice―I loved this book.” ―Clare Mackintosh, New York Times bestselling author of I Let You Go and I See You

 

“Tightly plotted, superbly written, this is a thriller that grabs you and holds you in its thrall. This story of a woman in a coma recalling the violence in her life gave me just enough information to remain entirely gripped yet sufficiently little that I didn’t know where I’d find the answers, or even the questions at times. I was led―completely willingly―in various different directions and until the final few pages I was baffled yet engrossed. And then, suddenly, at the very end, everything became clear. A brilliantly assured debut and a real achievement.” ―Nicholas Searle, author of international bestseller The Good Liar

 

“Exceptional in plotting…Expect perfectly embedded twists and sharply drawn characters. A brilliant thriller.” ―Ali Land, author of Good Me Bad Me

 

“Boldly plotted, tightly knotted―a provocative true-or-false thriller that deepens and darkens to its ink-black finale. Marvelous.” ―AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window
