My Review - 4 Great to the Last Drop
Wow, now this is an edge of your seat thriller. Exciting from page one, I enjoyed the Epigraph it definitely made me more anxious to read this story. Beautiful Lies was more like Deadly Beautiful Lies and the main character Ridley put herself at risk with her own naive interpretations.
I loved that this was about family and friends, those that you love and trust the most and then because of 1 small choice made you don't know who to believe and who to turn to or even consider turning yourself in to a mental institute because maybe you are just going crazy.
This book was fascinating, and a really different style to me as Lisa Unger had the main character Ridley talking directly to the reader. eg. The way I saw it, there were a couple other biggies. Tell me if you agree. First was: Who the hell is Jake? I was thrown first, like she is talking to me, lol, but I enjoyed it, it made you feel like she was pulling you in so she didn't feel alone going through this train wreck of lies and was it really lies, hmmmm.
This thriller has action, storyline, great characters, hot romance moments and lies and lots of them. You will never figure out what the heck is going on. I haven't decided if I like the idea that everything wasn't answered, seems like reality but I still wanted something answered, this was a small issue.
Lisa Unger is new to me but another author I will be adding to my must read list. Do you have any recommendations on others I should try? This one is 79c on Kindle right now if interested.
Julie P (Reading with Restraint) is one of my favourite trusted bloggers, she recommended this one and I am glad she did, go have a read of her review. Many What are you Reading on Monday's commenter's recommended this one also, so thank you.
I read this one for my Thriller and Suspense Challenge
