Between The Lies is a classic psychological thriller that I read just at the right time. I loved Michelle Adams’ debut novel: My Sister, so of course, I was super excited to read her second novel. The verdict? It was even more addictive than the first one and I read it in one day!
I hadn’t really enjoyed this kind of books lately, so I was glad when Between The Lies grabbed from the very start. I remember loving the prologue so much! This book was definitely more straight-forward and faster-paced than Michelle’s previous novel (which was also darker), but despite being so different, I actually liked both a lot.
The plot here isn’t the most unique ever, and I’ve definitely read similar stories in the last few years, but it was nevertheless well-written, captivating, and fans of the genre will definitely enjoy it. The book has all the ingredients that you could ask for in a story like this. It’s twisty, the characters are all mysterious and you don’t know who to trust. What’s more, you don’t even know if the main character is telling the truth.
Between The Lies reminded me of one of my favorite psychological thrillers, Before I Go To Sleep. And that’s a great thing. Michelle Adams clearly knows how to write unputdownable novels and I can’t wait to keep reading everything she writes!
Michelle Adams grew up in the UK and now lives in Cyprus, where she works as a part-
time scientist. She read her first Stephen King novel at the tender age of nine, and has been addicted to suspense fiction ever since. BETWEEN THE LIES is her second novel following the acclaimed psychological thriller MY SISTER.
