My Review: 4/5
This is one of those books that I can say, “well I certainly didn’t expect that”. I get tired of books being so predictable and easy to figure out. Liars was a pleasant change from the predictability.
Liars started out slow for me. However, about a quarter of the way through it picked up. Jenny learns her mother has died from an accident. When the police question her, an unexpected witness appears stating he saw her the night of her mother’s death taking all suspicion off Jenny. Soon, the witness (David) becomes attached to Jenny and things start to take a curious turn.
Jenny’s best friend Freddie is suspicious of David, and when he starts uncovering hidden secrets he does everything he can to protect Jenny.
This is the beginning of the suspense and questions arise. Who is David? How long has he really known Jenny? The story unfolds and more and more secrets come out…just when I thought I knew the truth, more and more discoveries were made.
While the beginning of the book we a little confusin for me, the writing did a great job of pulling the story together. The characterization was superb, revealing each character just a little bit at a time, keeping the suspense alive.
If you want a story that will surprise you until the very end, pick up Liars today!
