The Last Time I Lied

The Last Time I Lied - Riley Sager I had a very hard time suspending disbelief throughout this Novel to rate it any higher than 2.5 Stars. There were way too many character' s actions and decisions that just couldn't possibly have happened and that kind of ruined the story for me. However there is suspense at the heart of this novel that did keep me turning the pages and the book's conclusion was worth hanging in for

I understand I am not singing with the choir on this one as so many of my friends are loving it and the story did start out strong with Emma a rising star on the New York Art Scene painting her massive canvases filled with ghostly shapes in white dresses. . Emma meets a face from her past and is quickly is drawn back to Camp Nightingale the camp where she spent a summer as a thirteen year old girl and the scene from where her three friends disappeared 13 years ago.

I listened to this one on audible and while the narrator was fine the character of Franny was very victorian sounding and the characters words and speech sounded too dated for a modern novel.

Thrillers where I have to suspend disbelief dont work well for me and while this one wont make my favourites list I know I will recommend it to friends who loved books like [b:Something in the Water|36388243|Something in the Water|Catherine Steadman|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1528120440s/36388243.jpg|58079049]
