Thanks to Isabel Smith and HQ for organising this blog tour and to Adele Parks for a copy of this novel in exchange for an unbiased review.



Daisy and Simon’s marriage is great, isn’t it? After years together, the arrival of longed-for daughter Millie sealed everything in place. A happy little family of three. And so what if Simon drinks a bit too much sometimes – Daisy’s used to it, she knows he’s letting off steam. Until one night at a party things spiral horribly out of control. And that happy little family of three will never be the same again.

In Lies Lies Lies, Sunday Times bestseller Adele Parks explores the darkest corners of a relationship in freefall in a mesmerising tale of marriage and secrets

My Thoughts

On the surface Daisy and Simon have it all but not everything is as it seems.  Simon and Daisy have secrets and when things begin to spiral, their marriage unravels in a spectacular way.

Lies Lies Lies is one of those novels that is difficult to review in depth because anything I say about the plot or characters will pretty much be classed as a spoiler.  The biggest advice I can give you is to just read it!  You won’t be disappointed!

From the very beginning I couldn’t put this down.  Once the story began to unfold it just continued util the very end with surprises in every chapter. The more I read, the more I changed my opinions and thoughts about each character.  Just when I thought I knew which side I was on and that I knew the truth, BAM! Something else was revealed that sent my mind spiraling into indecision again.

This novel confronts a variety of genuine issues experienced by many families and I found it incredibly thought provoking – an exercise in judgement and choices.

This is a superb thriller for fans of domestic psychology with added suspense and twists.
