They built a life on lies
Sutton and Ethan Montclair's idyllic life is not as it appears. They seem made for each other, but the truth is ugly. Consumed by professional and personal betrayals and financial woes, the two both love and hate each other. As tensions mount, Sutton disappears, leaving behind a note saying not to look for her.
Ethan finds himself the target of vicious gossip as friends, family and the media speculate on what really happened to Sutton Montclair. As the police investigate, the lies the couple have been spinning for years quickly unravel. Is Ethan a killer? Is he being set up? Did Sutton hate him enough to kill the child she never wanted and then herself? The path to the answers is full of twists that will leave the reader breathless.
My Review - 4 stars
Another great one by my favourite author. The Dr. Samantha Owens series books are my #1 favourite but I enjoyed this standalone also. Nothing is as it seems but this goes with the title Lie to Me. One lie continuous into life and death consequences. What is the lie - you will never figure it all out and the little part you do, HA, nothing to do with what it really is, this was executed well.
The ending is shocking but I really don't think believable but the ultimate retaliation plan gone wrong on so many levels. Betrayal, murder, lies, marriage, friends, relationships and more lies.
Sutton and Ethan are successful writers, but there a marital problems, deciding to have a baby, possibly some abuse and it all becomes to much. Does Sutton leave, get murdered or did she commit suicide? She leaves a note saying do not look for me but Ethan knows something is wrong. The police are unsure who to believe.
Ethan calls his mother in law and all the best friends with worry only to be accused by many on hurting Sutton. There are so many lies and you want to blame someone, but who is to blame. Another exciting part of the book is you hear from a voice, but whose, who are unsure.

When it comes to lies, everything you read is a clue. Sutton reads this.
"Life is full of confusion. Confusion of love, passion, and romance. Confusion of family and friends. Confusion with life itself. What path we take, what turns we make. How we roll our dice."
This is the perfect, who did it book for those that love a good psychological read. There is so much going on something that pulls at your heart, I'm sure you won't figure it all out.
This has been the year of marriage, dark, disturbing relationship reads. I have enjoyed them. Which one was your favourite?
Thanks NetGalley for another amazing read.
