    I’m giving it up for TM Logan and his Lies.  They held me captive from cover to cover.WHAT IF YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS BASED ON LIES?First of all, I liked Joe Lynch.  Sure he was a little too trusting and naïve but pray tell, who among us has not been that, at some point or another.  And yes I wanted to smack him a couple times myself, you know, Pay Attention Buddy, type smacks. Have you ever dropped in unexpectedly on your spouse, when and wher...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review.Joe and Mel, happily married for 12 years.  They don't lie to each other.  Period.  Oh, wait. . . . yes, they do.  Lots o' lies, untruths by the score.  Social media and tech savviness play a big part in this tale of misdirection.    This was a real page-swiper for me.  Good tight writing, nicely paced.

    When picking up a book simply titled “Lies” it was pretty safe to go into this one expecting not to trust anything or anyone. The story got off to a decent start that got my curiosity up right away. Joe Lynch was traveling along with his son when they spot a mommy car but it’s not just any car that looks like it belongs to Joe’s wife but really her in her car. With his young son excited over the prospect of seeing mommy Joe follows his wi...

    4 incredibly hard to put down stars OH MY GOODNESS! This was a delicious rainy day read and I was completely captivated from beginning to end. Each chapter made my head spin as T.M.

    Lies is a novel about 2 adult couples, their interactions, and the impact of these interactions. What sets the novel apart is the role technology plays in the plot development. Without iPads and cellphones and their various apps, this would just be a novel like others we have read before.The novel opens very benignly and quickly devolves to threats, physical confrontation, lies and importantly loss of a cell phone. Next are the unanswered questio...

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions presented are my own.3.5 starsThis book was pure entertainment. It grabs the reader in chapter one and for the most part doesn't let go until the last page. I really enjoyed the story over all, it was well paced and well written. This is told from a single POV and it really worked in this because it kept me guessing and really connected me to the thoughts...

    See full review at: 5171 Miles Book Blog.Many thanks to St. Martin's Press and Netgalley for the chance to read and review this novel.Though I love reading, I often hate starting new books as it typically takes some time to get into the story and figure out the setting, characters, etc (I know, blasphemy), so when a book is able to grab me from the very first page I know I'm going to love it. It's always a relief to immediately find myself intere...

    Wow. This one grabbed me. It’s a straightforward psychological thriller, no clever devices, but that doesn’t mean it’s dull or boring by any stretch. Joe sees his wife pulling into a hotel car park and follows her in. The story builds and there appear to be a whole series of lies. I really felt for Joe. I’ve had a family member deceive me (luckily not my husband) and I know all too well that gut wrenching feeling of having the world fall ...

    Yawn. Dull dull dull. Another one to avoid - DNF @ 18% These best sellers are the worst for being disappointing. The only decent bit in the book is the beginning. All down hill from there, with the most wimpy male character ever. The most irritating dialogue between the father and son. Seriously worried about this in fiction. Can no one write men and children without descending to such lows? I gave up on this quite quickly.

    I received a free e-copy of Lies by T.M. Logan from NetGalley for my honest review.This was a crazy, exciting, psychological thriller of a book. The title is very appropriate for the book as there are lies on top of lies. My head was on a constant swivel. As soon as I thought I worked my way around a lie and had it figured out there were 5 more and they just kept coming. The outcome of the book I just never saw coming. A very intense read with ve...

    Lies by TM Logan is a fast paced psychological thriller that had me hooked from the first page. Logan didn't waste any time jumping right into the action and grabbing my attention with the deception and mystery surrounding Ben, Mel, and Joe. I flew through this book in one afternoon, needing to know how things would end. The plot kept me jumping from theory to theory with each new detail that was revealed. I was pleasantly surprised to find out t...
