Book Review – Lie To Me by Kaitlin Ward #BookReview #BookBlogger #suspense

A murder mystery at the core.

Amelia had a fall, but she was sure she was pushed. Girls were being killed and that scared her. Had she been the target of a serial killer or was that an accident?

My first book by Kaitlin Ward, the book was fast paced. It had hints of murder mystery, but it was basically a high school drama with rampant hormones in most parts. Amelia was a typical teen. Her relationship with mom and brother was good. Rest had too much drama.

Liam as the boyfriend felt supportive. Characters were few, with not many red herrings so it was easy to guess. Only the killer understood reasons for murder and justified it. I didn’t!!

Then came my niggles, writing was juvenile. Where the blurb said thriller, the book had more of romance. Ugghh!! What a waste of good cover.

Overall, the book is good only for teenagers.

I received a free ARC from Edelweiss and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

NEAR DNF 1 star 🌟

Ever since Amelia woke up in the hospital, recovering from a near-death fall she has no memory of, she’s been suspicious. Her friends, family, and doctors insist it was an accident, but Amelia is sure she remembers being pushed. Then another girl is found nearby — one who fell, but didn’t survive.

Amelia’s fears suddenly feel very real, and with the help of her new boyfriend, Liam, she tries to investigate her own horrific ordeal. But what is she looking for, exactly? And how can she tell who’s trustworthy, and who might be — must be — lying to her?

The closer Amelia gets to the truth, the more terrifying her once orderly, safe world becomes. She’s determined to know what happened, but if she doesn’t act fast, her next accident might be her last.

    1. Hahaha my first draft was more critical… I became diplomatic in this. This has been published by an established publisher. How can they accept a writing which feels like a 13 year old has written it?
