Edgy, cunning, and pacey!

Your Truth or Mine? is a character-driven, domestic thriller that delves into the question how well do you really know anyone and highlights just how many secrets and lies people keep and tell to those closest to them.

The prose is tight and intense. The characters are vulnerable, crafty, and troubled. And the plot starts off with a bang and quickly unfolds into an ominous tale full of love, life, loss, deception, desperation, familial drama, manipulation, jealousy, obses

A twisty psychological thriller and family drama here, highly readable and very engaging.
I really didn’t like EITHER of the people in this seemingly great marriage and for me that made the story beautifully addictive, also hugely real because we all have our faults and the fault lines in this particular relationship are fascinatingly dark.
Having said that I also came up with random moments of sympathy for both parties as a missing woman, hidden secrets and family loyalties divide the pair into s

This was a really good book. It started off really well and continued that way throughout the book. I didn’t really warm to any of the characters especially the two main ones but it didn’t change it for me. I’m glad that it was told by both Roy and Mia. It had a lot of twists and turns and it was very enjoyable. I can’t wait to read more from this author especially as the debut was so good. I’m interested to see what she comes up with next.

Wow! I thought this was such a chilling and riveting read! I had a hard time setting it down and needed to know more! It’s one of those that starts in a way that makes it impossible to put down and continues to make sure that it’s done throughout the book! Lots of suspense, chills, thrills, and shocks! And so well written, because you feel what the characters feel! Recommend to those who love ones that I love!

Your Truth or Mine is pacey and twisty and didn’t go where I thought it would - which is exactly what I want in a psychological.

To describe the web(s) of lies and deceit on offer here as complicated is to seriously underestimate this plot. I think I’m right in saying that every major character here is lying to at least one other character - as well as to themselves. I am trying to picture a Venn diagram of this and can only begin to imagine the plotting notes and diagrams that went into keeping

A big thank you to Pan Macmillan India for the copy! I know I'm way, way too late in reviewing this one but I finally finished it and all I can say is 'OMG'! :)

Well, not really that. But I have a few thoughts about this book.

Trisha Sakhlecha's 'Your Truth or Mine?' is the story of Mia and Roy Kapoor, who are apparently in a happy marriage. But things are not what they seem to be. When a young woman, Emily Barnett, disappears and the police end up at their door, questioning Roy about it, everythi

This domestic thriller has several layers to it than I'd expected and I'm not quite sure where to begin with.

The story revolves around Mia and Roy, a married couple based in London with Indian roots. As the story progresses, we get a glimpse of their marriage, the lies, betrayal, ignorance between the couple from each other's perspective, yet not so clearly. The tension between the characters are vivid and unavoidable and that suspense is enough to keep the readers hooked through the very short

Mia and Roy have been married for a while now. When they got married they promised to have and to hold each other in the good times and the bad. Sure their love has had its rocky moments but on the whole it has been a happy marriage. They tell each other everything and have no secrets. At least that’s what Mia thinks until that fateful day when they get a knock on the door and Roy is taken into custody over the disappearance of a woman that he knows.

Suddenly their life is unravelling at the sea

4/5 stars for Your Truth or Mine by Trisha Sakhlecha.

I was savoring every page of this book because it was the only one I'd brought with me to my move to Europe. I can't have many books on the boat (lack of space in my little cabin). So it took me a lot longer than usual to get through it. I was scared to finish it and not have another book to keep me going! The horror! But then I received a lovely gift, the first George R. R. Martin book, A Games of Thrones. A whopping seven hundred and somethi

My three-word description of Your Truth or Mine? by Trisha Sakhlecha is captivating, edgy and cunning.

I found this compelling and hugely entertaining. It is a delightful tale of fiction with frissons of suspense, chills and eeriness. Married couple Mia and Roy Kapoor are totally committed to each other. But when a young woman is found dead, Roy becomes the prime, and only, suspect. As Roy and Mia’s life unravels, they must question everything they know about each other if

Told between the alternating POV's between husband and wife Mia and Roy, Your Truth or mine is a twisty and addictive psychological thriller. Saklecha's debut has almost all the components I primarily look for in a moody mystery : be it an unreliable narrator, a well placed plot, adequate back story or an unpredictable climax.

The events that unravel in India and London take place in a duration of three months but are actually a repercussion of actions that have their roots sink in deep. The stor

Mia and Roy Kapoor are living somewhat happily in London, having been married for many years, when there is a knock from a police officer at the door. Suddenly Roy is being questioned about the disappearance of one of his younger, female coworkers. Mia finds out that he lied to her about where he was last week and he knows more than he is letting on. What else is he hiding? I can't say much more about this book without giving it away! It's best to go into it not knowing what to expect, and just ...more

Your Truth or Mine? Is an excellent novel by Trisha Sakhlecha. I have to admit I am not a major fan of thrillers, but when I started reading this book, I was so hooked, I sat for twelve hours straight to finish it.

What I particularly love about Your Truth or Mine? is how it switches the narration between its lead protagonists, literally giving you their respective versions of truth. The writing is very creative, full of powerful imagery and has an interesting play with paradoxical language. My

Your Truth or Mine? by Trisha Sakhlecha is an impressive debut. Told from alternating perspectives in a 'he said/she said' format, I was fully engaged as a witness to the marital discourse of Roy and Mia Kapoor.

Roy and Mia entered into their marriage, as most do, believing that it would last forever. But when a young woman is found dead, Roy becomes the prime, and only, suspect. The cracks in the marriage are fully exposed, and the secrets and lies hidden within are laid bare. Is Roy guilty of t

I love psychological thrillers to the point where I've become quite adept at guessing the ending right in the beginning. But in Your Truth or Mine, I did not see the final twist coming at all.

This is the kind of book you read when the weather's chilly and you have a lot of time. You just won't be able to put it down until the last page is turned!

I was blown away by this deceptively slow burning psychological thriller. Similar to Clare Mackintosh’s “I Let You Go”, this novel’s first part isn’t very suspenseful, but trust me you need to savor every word to properly appreciate Trisha Sakhlecha’s debut. Part Two gives you bunch of surprises, but throughout the author doesn’t give you a single hint to prepare you for the shocking ending. A solid 5 star book. #YourTruthOrMine

Mia and Roy are an Indian British couple who are hiding secrets from each other. It’s your typical domestic thriller with plenty of family drama, infidelity and secrets of course.

I liked the multicultural characters and the unexpected ending.

ried guessing the end, but no way. Truly an amazing book.
I have been on a break from domestic thrillers recently and decided to pick this up. I was interested mainly because it features an Indian or inter racial couple, I could not tell from the summary at the back.

As I delved in, I really enjoyed the parts of Indian culture and their weddings. Mia and Roy seem like a happy couple until Roy cheats on her and things start going downhill. This book is very dramatic and to the point of feeling sensationalised. I was reading it the way I would watch real

I was enjoying this and got in to it straight away. Chapter after chapter kept me interested and I liked how short they were. The ending was a big let down though, very disappointing and such an anticlimax. Spoilt it for me.

The plot unravels when Roy is questioned for the missing of a woman. As the investigation proceeds, Mia realises that she doesn't know the man who she loved madly loved. She realises that while she took all the preparations to give him a warm and sensuous welcome post his business trips, he was not truthful her. On the other hand Roy loves Mia and considers her the priced possession in his life. The matters gets further complicated as Mia had her demons to fight with, those that she had hidden f ...more

3.5* rounded up.

This opens with the police coming to question Roy about the disappearance of an assistant he has worked with called Emily. Immediately there are clues that Roy has been lying to Mia. Then the narrative flashes back a few months to Mia and Roy helping to host the wedding of Mia's sister in India.The author gradually describes the deceptions Roy practises on Mia, but also the secrets Mia has been keeping from him (and

There was only one prevailing thought that came to mind upon completion of this book and it was one that said “Thank God it’s over” as I laid it to rest.

Like all novels involving paper thin marriages built upon rocky foundations and self-effacing lies, the beginning of an end that always starts with a casual knock of the door. The one thing that got me intrigued enough to want to read it was the very vague and elusive picture the synopsis had painted in my head.

What I particularly liked about Your Truth or Mine? is how it switches the narration between its leads, literally giving you their respective versions of truth. The writing is very creative, full of powerful imagery and has an interesting play with language.

The plot is sharp and consistent, carefully weaving together all the different strands of the story. The final twist is cleverly built up and therefore unforeseeable. Through the characters’ journeys, the writer gives a deeper and almost scar

Your Truth or Mine is a really interesting debut novel. I think for me this read more like a family drama/fiction than a thriller, for a majority of the book anyways.

The story begins with Ray, Mia’s husband, being questioned over the disappearance of Emily, a woman they both know. From there we are taken through Roy and Mia’s marriage, family dynamics and lies and how everything begins to unravel. You will not like a single character and it is very hard to pick a side but that doesn’t really mat

This book had a really promising start, I loved the setting in India and all the detail of the wedding. It was completly different to the usual start of these types of books.
The story itself was about a woman who has disappeared and an affair, usual run of the mill storylines really, it was enjoyable however when i reached the end and everything was brought to a conclusion i felt that the actual main story could have had such a more in depth storyline. All Mias issues for example werent really

A psychological thriller full of twists and turns that have your head reeling with disbelief, never knowing who is telling the truth. Exactly what I expect from this genre of book.

I admit neither of the characters in the forefront, Mia & Roy, actually appealed to me, I wasnt particularly rooting for one or the other but I think that made it all the more addictive.

I only gave 3 stars as for once I just couldn't fully picture the characters in my imagination which made it hard for me to fully imme
