unfortunately not for all good reasons I ll start with the good stuff 1 Nicely paced I read through in 5 days, mostly over 3 sittings.2 Intriguing premise3 DRAMA But then oh man I knew I was in for something when the tech specialist was introduced, somehow multitasking crazy code and a violent video game on two separate PCs, with two separate keyboards, while talking on her headset Look, I m not saying it s IMPOSSIBLE but that is improbable Improbable would probably be my go to word for this one It requires an incredible suspension of disbelief I think I m pretty good at suspending my disbelief when enjoying books or films well, I hate it when my partner likes to point out things that don t make sense anyway , but it was really difficult to do with this book There was just too much.Many of the characters, like the hacker who is never introduced again , read as caricatures the incredibly sexy, smart, dangerous vixen the jaded older cop.If you want to read a maybe sexy question mark thriller without big expectations then this is one for you to read It s a quick read that has you asking a million questions and answers pretty much all of them But if you re not sure, I ll tell you this, because I feel like it gives you a bit of insight to the book s vibe The main character is a beautiful, smart, woman She worked as a financial advisor in an attempt to finance her career as a professional dancer As a VERY young child she was the best dancer who had ever stepped foot in any Hollywood ballet schools She had TALENT Her parents were famous film stars who turned into famous Hollywood porno stars , who only bought drugs, drink, and ballet lessons, until they died in a fiery crash while THEY were chasing the paparazzi Sounds wild, huh Well if you want of that, read this book Check out my other reviews here. 4.5 StarsWhen will I learn My head is spinning And, for me, that s always a sign of an excellent thriller Last One To Lie is wicked and CRAZY Kelsey is just about to pick up her daughter from day care when they inform her that there is NO record of her little girl ever being there, then she phones her husband at the school where he teaches, only to find out that yep, you guessed it he never worked there I enjoyed how the relationship between the protagonist and the detective offers intense Basic Instinct vibes yes, there were definitely some erotic moments in the story We follow the narrative through both of their perspectives The author maintains intrigue in every single chapter Our main character has an incredibly dark, ugly past And she s definitely hiding something The detective is even frustrated and shocked with how the case is unfolding A case that s almost impossible to solve.And just when the main questions are officially answered towards the end, there comes an even bigger mystery to unravel Someone is lying The other is telling the truth The final pages get twistier than ever Warning this book will mess with your head, and you ll find yourself holding your breath once you get to the final line I definitely recommend this and will be impatiently waiting for the author s next book Full reviews on Instagram ludwigreadsThe blog Ludwig s Thrillers 4 big stars This was such a great read The cover drew me to this book instantly and I can t say no to a book that has lie in the title The book starts off with mum, Kelsey Jennings, who has just moved to a new town with her husband and daughter Kelsey heads to her daughter s kindergarten to pick her up after a yoga session, only to be told by employees that her daughter has never attended this kindergarten Frantic, she calls her husband at his new job as a school teacher to find out what s going on Only to find that the school says they have never heard of a Malcolm Jennings This story is full of twists and turns that you don t see coming And when you think you can guess what s going to happen, it takes a completely different turn, which I love about a story The beginning of this book really drew me in and for the most part it was an extremely gripping and addictive plot When I reached about half way through I found some parts a little messy with unnecessary throw ins and relationships But the book wrapped up well and I enjoyed the ending Definitely a must read I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Oh my goodness, this is such a ridiculous book I literally laughed out loud a few times at the plot twists and tropes the author threw in At one point I actually stopped reading, looked at the ceiling, and thought, Really You re going to play THAT card and laughed Wow It s almost like one of those movies that s designed to be campy, only it s not.So why three stars It was still well written in the sense that the author who says she is well known under another name as a romance writer knows how to write dialog and keep the book flowing I was curious what on earth was going on She knows how to write a scene, in the sense that someone who is trained in a craft can do it well The author thanks two law enforcement officers in her acknowledgements I have a feeling they re going to be mortified thinking that people will think that they do this level of police work You re going to need an incredible amount of suspension of disbelief to go along with how this missing child case or even simple background check is supposedly worked by the police And then there are instances of the main police officer not being able to figure something out ever that has a ridiculously easy way to tell the answer I m honestly shocked nobody in editing picked up on this glaring mistake, but okay.Oh yeah, and there s lots of sex and the main character is absolutely beautiful with a perfect body, because of course she is All of it is just ridiculous Read this book the way you d watch The Bachelor, not because you care about any of the characters but because you want some mindless, inane fun I read a digital ARC of this book for the purpose of review.
