Distasteful characters are full of Lies Lies Lies in this new domestic suspense tale.
Daisy and Simon should be happy. They’ve been married since their youth. After some fertility issues, they were blessed with the perfect daughter, six-year-old Millie. Sure, Simon likes a drink, or ten, in the evening. And Daisy has some secrets of her own. But they are comfortable with each other—flaws and all.
However, they disagree on having another child. After all, with Daisy at forty-five and with their infertility history, a good result is unlikely. Over Daisy’s objections, Simon insists that they visit a fertility clinic, where Simon hears disturbing news.
Lies Lies Lies is an entirely appropriate title for a book so full of liars. There are also drunks and cheaters in the mix. Overall, every major adult character is morally or ethically challenged. I, personally, need at least one hero to root for in a family drama. I failed to find one here, which makes my rating 3 stars.
Thanks to MIRA, Harlequin Books, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
