This thread is open to discuss Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh.

description

Synopsis
The police say it was suicide.
Anna says it was murder.
They're both wrong.

One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since.

Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to question her parents’ deaths. But by digging up their past, she’ll put her future in danger. Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie…

The stunning, twisty new psychological thriller from number one bestseller Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go and I See You.

Geri | 2042 comments There’s plenty of buzz for this book. Read about this and Sometimes I Lie in Entertainment Weekly. Really looking forward to this one!

Molly (mollyrotondo) | 135 comments Hi! I would like to participate in this Buddy Read if that's alright? I have never joined a Buddy Read before so I'm sorry if I"m intruding.

Brooke | 1199 comments The more the merrier! I should have a copy by the end of the week, so I am up for starting anytime next week.

Laura | 9707 comments Hey Molly, we are happy to have you join us!

@ Geri.. I saw you were reading that book. I had it on m OverDrive and returned it as I have too many books to try and get through. How is it?

Can't wait to get my copy of Let Me Lie

Sometimes I Lie was recommended by a goodreads friend months ago. Had to wait until this week for it to release in the U.S.. I’m about 20% done. It is good. I don’t know the twist yet. Will let you all know more later!

Hmm, maybe I should try again to get it from my OverDrive!

Kristie | 3279 comments My library just made this one available to me and I'll be picking it up in a few days. It seems all of my holds have come through at the same time. I may try to jump on if my brain doesn't melt from all the rapid reading!


message 11: by Molly (new)

Molly (mollyrotondo) | 135 comments Are we still on track to start reading April 1?


message 12: by Laura (new)

Laura | 9707 comments Hoping too, no copy yet for me and since I'm next in queue I'm not going to purchase this one.

LOL It does get easier with practice.

I will probably start a few days early. The first week of April I’ll be busy moving. But I will check in that week to chat about the book.

Thank you! I will start once I see your posts so I don't get too far ahead.


message 16: by Kristie (new)

Kristie | 3279 comments I'm going to pass on this one for now. I have too many to read all at once and there aren't too many holds at the library that I can't get it back pretty quickly later. Hope you all enjoy it!

Totally understandable! I'm still waiting for my copy to come in.


message 18: by Geri (new)

Geri | 2042 comments I have read the book. But bad me, never posted anything! I enjoyed this a lot! The author did a great job at making me care about the characters. I figured out one of the twists early on so rated it only 4 stars. Good writing, though! I will look for everyone’s posts and discuss the book with you all then!


message 19: by Laura (new)

Laura | 9707 comments I'm so tempted to buy it rather than wait but I'm being practical and waiting since I 'm working on the BOM!

yeah, glad you liked it Geri!


message 20: by Molly (new)

Molly (mollyrotondo) | 135 comments I started to read a little today.

Chapters 1 & 2

message 21: by Brooke (new)

Brooke | 1199 comments I was in a bookstore yesterday and came soooo close to buying this, but I resisted. If I don’t get a library copy soon, though, I might cave.


message 22: by Laura (new)

Laura | 9707 comments Ugh I might cave too! A Happy Easter gift to us Brooke? lol
My library is closed Monday. I may not even get it on Thursday. Yikes caving could be a definite possibility here!


message 23: by Geri (new)

Geri | 2042 comments Molly, I don’t want to spoil anything for you! But I do remember being drawn in right away into the mystery. (view spoiler) You are just beginning. Can’t wait to see what you think in the next few chapters!

Thanks, Geri! I'm glad I'm not the only one who was suspicious of Mark! I'm excited to keep reading. I'll let you know how my thoughts change as I continue.

I think I will give it until the end of the week....I have 4 different books in progress that I need to finish, but if I can't decide on what to read after that then I will end up caving on this one.

Haha I’m sorry for all the temptation! It’s just hard to put down, and I don’t want to forget my thoughts as I read. I’m excited to hear your thoughts when you get your copy.

No worries, it feels weird being on the other end and waiting to get a book rather than writing the spoilers and waiting for everyone else to get a copy! I can't wait to discuss with you. I like to do the same; read and write it down before I forget!

Me too, Laura. I still have 2 in progress, but I should be able to finish both of them by tomorrow night. I'm going to buy and start this one Saturday if I don't have a library copy by then.

Yayyy! I'm excited to read what you think! I have a little less than 100 pages left.

I am so happy I waited! I just got a notification from the library that my copy is available. I'm going to pick it up tonight also! I'll start either tomorrow night or Saturday.

I’m excited to hear what everyone thinks of the end when they get to it!


message 45: by Laura (new)

Laura | 9707 comments I 've fallen asleep on the couch two nights in a row! Reading has been slack. I just finished an awful book; I 'll start this one tomorrow. Looking forward to reading all your spoilers.

Anyone want to read this one next? Every Note Played by Lisa Genova (It's not going to win in the BOM nominations)

Brooke | 1199 comments I didn't get as far yesterday as I planned. I kept getting distracted by life stuff.

Chapters 14-27

I'd love to finish this today, but it depends on how distracted I get. It is tough to put down, though!

Sounds like you have been overworking yourself! It’s been crazy busy here too. My reading schedule is going very slowly. What book was awful? Just curious.

So sorry about your sister in law’s sister!
