All The Beautiful Lies by Peter Swanson Review

This was an interesting book,  to say the least! This is a psychological thriller, that revolves around step-parents/step kid’s sexual relationships. Which honestly didn't bug me that much, however, is very disturbing!! The story was very unexpected, I didn't see the ending coming. Great ending, I must say!!!

The stories were told in multiple POV's and kept going back and forth from the past to the present. I did enjoy this, it made you understand the whole story. I seem to really enjoy books that have multiple POV'S.

However, as much as the story is creative, I didn't really like any of the characters. Even the main character Harry. I just felt like he was always doing nothing, never reacting, and just a monotone character. Overall, I really did enjoy this book and would recommend for a twisted read!

Thank you to Harper Collins for providing me with an ARC of this book. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.

Harry Ackerson has always considered his stepmother Alice to be sexy and beautiful, in an "otherworldly" way. She has always been kind and attentive, if a little aloof in the last few years.

Days before his college graduation, Alice calls with shocking news. His father is dead and the police think it’s suicide. Devastated, Harry returns to his father’s home in Maine. There, he and Alice will help each other pick up of the pieces of their lives and uncover what happened to his father.

Shortly after he arrives, Harry meets a mysterious young woman named Grace McGowan. Though she claims to be new to the area, Harry begins to suspect that Grace may not be a complete stranger to his family. But she isn’t the only attractive woman taking an interest in Harry. The sensual Alice is also growing closer, coming on to him in an enticing, clearly sexual way.

Mesmerized by these two women, Harry finds himself falling deeper under their spell. Yet the closer he gets to them, the more isolated he feels, disoriented by a growing fear that both women are hiding dangerous—even deadly—secrets . . . and that neither one is telling the truth
