Review: Seven Lies by Elizabeth Kay

It all started with one little lie . . .

Jane and Marnie have been inseparable since they were eleven years old. They have a lot in common. In their early twenties they both fell in love and married handsome young men.

But Jane never liked Marnie’s husband. He was always so loud and obnoxious, so much larger than life. Which is rather ironic now, of course.

Because if Jane had been honest – if she hadn’t lied – then perhaps her best friend’s husband might still be alive . . .

This is Jane’s opportunity to tell the truth, the question is:
Do you believe her?

Jane is a wonderful narrator and so far very believable even though by her opinion on things. We know she lies, she says so herself – only she doesn’t usually lie to her best friend Marnie.

Seven Lies is the story of the lies Jane told Marnie.

Heartbreaking in places and oh so achingly spot on about the way the ‘forever’ friendhips of our teenage years can drift apart. 

This was one of those books that had me continually wanting to know what was coming next.

Jane’s lies get increasingly more twisty as we follow her story and I read her seventh with my heart in my mouth.

An engaging and clever novel, I really enjoyed it.

With thanks to the Sphere for a copy in exchange for honest review.

Seven Lies is available now.
