The Plot (from Goodreads):
From author Julie Clark comes a twisted con-woman thriller about two women out for revenge―or is it justice?
Two women. Many aliases.
Meg Williams. Maggie Littleton. Melody Wilde. Different names for the same person, depending on the town, depending on the job. She’s a con artist who erases herself to become whoever you need her to be―a college student. A life coach. A real estate agent. Nothing about her is real. She slides alongside you and tells you exactly what you need to hear, and by the time she’s done, you’ve likely lost everything.
Kat Roberts has been waiting ten years for the woman who upended her life to return. And now that she has, Kat is determined to be the one to expose her. But as the two women grow closer, Kat’s long-held assumptions begin to crumble, leaving Kat to wonder who Meg’s true target is.
The Lies I Tell is a twisted domestic thriller that dives deep into the psyches and motivations of two women and their unwavering quest to seek justice for the past and rewrite the future.
How did The Lies I Tell end?
The Lies I Tell is a quick, compelling read about a grifter and a journalist determined to take her down. I was hooked–I love reading about grifters, like in Pretty Things and The Last Mrs. Parrish. This was one of those books where I couldn’t decide who I should root for–I sympathized with both Meg and Kat, even though they were on opposite sides!
While this book is thrilling, it wasn’t exactly a thriller. There’s no big reveal, the reader just steadily finds out what happens and why. The pages turn quickly, though, and I was excited to see how Meg’s con would turn out.
I haven’t read The Last Flight yet (although I own it!), but I will certainly be jumping in soon after enjoying this one.
