One More Lie by Amy Lloyd | Review

One More Lie| Amy Lloyd| HarperCollinsPub: April 4, 2019| Pages: 400

My friend read this book and absolutely adored it, so I had very high hopes for this novel. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy it as much as she did.

The book was pretty slow and had lots of character development. It took almost 60% for the story to pick up a bit. There was also no crazy twist and turns that you would probably expect from a thriller. Which was kind of disappointing.

The story is told from two different perspectives and goes back and forth from past to present. I did enjoy some of the past chapters as we gained a little bit more insight into the incident that happened to our main character when she was younger.

The ending fell flat, and I was not as engaged in the story as I could have been.

It was a quick and easy read though, just not for me. I prefer high-paced, suspenseful, twisty books!

Thank you to HARLEQUIN – Trade Publishing for providing me with the audiobook ARC via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


Charlotte wants to start fresh. She wants to forget her past, forget prison and, most of all, forget Sean. But old habits die hard. Despite the ankle monitor she must wear as part of her parole agreement and frequent visits to her therapist, she soon finds herself sliding back toward the type of behavior that sent her to prison in the first place. The further down that path she goes, however, the closer she gets to the crime that put her in prison all those years ago. And that's the one memory she can't face. Until, one day, Sean tracks her down.

Amy Lloyd won theDaily Mail First Novel competition for her debut, The Innocent Wife. Now she returns with a chilling portrait of a woman trying to be good, even when she isn't sure she wants to be.
