It’s my turn on the blog tour for the brilliant Liar, by K.L. Slater today …
Here’s the blurb …
How far would you go to protect your family?
Single dad Ben is doing his best to raise his children, with the help of his devoted mother Judi. And then Ben meets Amber. Everyone thinks this is a perfect match for Ben but Judi isn’t so sure…
There’s just something about Amber that doesn’t add up. Ben can’t see why his mother dislikes his new girlfriend. And Amber doesn’t want Judi anywhere near her new family. Amber just wants Ben and the children.
The further Judi delves into Amber’s personal life, the closer she gets to shocking secrets that could change everything. And Judi must make a decision that could lead to the most disastrous consequences.
Liar is a compelling psychological thriller with a breath taking twist that will keep you awake until the early hours. Perfect for fans of Behind Closed Doors, The Girl Before and The Sister.
My thoughts …
When a book starts at the end you can be forgiven for thinking that you know too much, too soon.
Not when you’re reading this one! Do not be fooled!!!
Starting at the end is pure genius, it makes this book stand out and gives it an edge that you just don’t see all the time – brilliant!
When single dad Ben starts dating Amber, his mother doesn’t like her. Not much of an issue right? I mean, Judi has had her son and grandchildren all to herself for a while now – she’s clearly jealous and taking everything to heart with Amber.
From the off though Amber is a bit of a strange one, Slater has a wonderful way of creating characters who I love to hate. She grips you in with some of the most despicable and manipulative people, the most horrifying, gut-wrenching and nervy scenarios and she has this unbelievable ability to actually make you feel scared! I found myself wondering if I needed to close my curtains on numerous occasions reading this one!!!!
Once again, Slater has hit it outta the park, like we ever doubted she would! She is a fantastic writer and Liar is a book full of unreliable characters, underhand goings-on and the most unexpected outcomes!!
I highly recommend you read this one folks! It’s another Bookouture belter!
