“If I hadn’t told that first lie [agreeing with my friend Marnie that Charles was perfect for her], would I have told the others? But surely the truth—that I had never hated anyone the way I hated him—would have destroyed our friendship. If I had been honest—if I had sacrificed our love for theirs—then Charles would almost certainly still be alive.”—the exact moment that I knew Seven Lies would be a twisty and thrilling treat of a tale.
Jane’s long-time best friend, Marnie, is also her roommate until Jane falls hard for Jonathan. Jane moves in with Jonathan and on with her life. But when Jonathan dies in an accident, Jane tries to rekindle her relationship with Marnie to tragic effect.
If you like your thrillers twisty and unexpected, Seven Lies is a must-read. Its characters are complex. Plus, watching all the plot threads coalesce into the surprising conclusion was great fun. 4.5 stars!
