Living Lies by Natalie Walters | Book Review


In the little town of Walton, Georgia, everybody knows your name–but no one knows your secret. At least that’s what Lane Kent is counting on when she returns to her hometown with her five-year-old son. Dangerously depressed after the death of her husband, Lane is looking for hope. What she finds instead is a dead body.

Lane must work with Walton’s newest deputy, Charlie Lynch, to uncover the truth behind the murder. But when that truth hits too close to home, she’ll have to decide if saving the life of another is worth the cost of revealing her darkest secret.

Debut novelist Natalie Walters pulls you to the edge of your seat on the first page and keeps you there until the last in this riveting story that will have you believing no one is defined by their past.

I’m not sure why but I wasn’t too impressed with this book! It was alright, but based on the glowing reviews from my friends, I was expecting more. I’ll expound a bit. From the start, Living Lies didn’t really keep my attention and didn’t keep it until right about the end — that’s when I got excited wondering how it would all unravel. The plot didn’t grab me and I feel like just wasn’t for me.

I did enjoy reading about the characters and I think it’s always interesting when you have a MC with her son actively involved in the book. Lane wasn’t my favorite character because I feel like we didn’t get to know much about her true personality, but I did like Charlie a lot and Meaghan, Lane’s sister.

Overall, it didn’t impress me as much as I thought it would, but I did enjoy the read and would recommend suspense lovers to give it a try!
