Review: Here We Lie by Sophie McKenzie

4 out of 5 stars

Well that was pretty exhausting! The web of lies, the deception, the cheating, the pretention, almost every character wearing a mask and I guess that’s what makes it really good- how the book lived up to its promise and title for that matter- Here We Lie. This is my very first Sophie McKenzie novel and I’m glad I finally gave her a try. I’ve always been curious about her psycho-thrillers and the book did not disappoint.

What I really appreciate about the novel besides the plot and mystery because both are already very commendable-a vacation turned sour when one of them mysteriously dies of an accident-is the narrative viewpoint (there are three actually-) which allowed me to really get to know the different characters in the story. The POVs made the entire narrative interesting and gripping. The diary entries of Dee-dee is probably the best POV and it’s really the focal point of the entire story.

I did have my suspicions and I did suspect the right people but the revelations still gave me quite a shock and the answer to the mystery is honestly very heartbreaking but somehow, the author managed to make that tragic event inevitable perhaps to teach these morally flawed characters a hard lesson about the dangers of lying.

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
