I received my copy of Three Little Lies from a book loving friend that I often swap books with. She loved it so I was hoping I would too. Also as I saw it was the same author that wrote Friend Request, I was expecting it to be good…….and it was…….very good.
Someone told a lie. Someone knows the truth.
Someone is watching you.
When Sasha North comes into Ellen’s life, Ellen falls under her spell. As Ellen is welcomed into Sasha’s family, she doesn’t see the darkness that lies beneath their bohemian lifestyle. Not until a brutal attack changes all their lives forever.
Ten years later, Ellen and Sasha share a flat in London, still bound together by that night. When Sasha disappears, Ellen fears the worst. The police won’t take her seriously, but the events of the past give Ellen good reason to be frightened.
What really happened that night? Who is telling the whole truth? These are the questions Ellen must confront when searching for her friend. But someone knows Ellen is looking. And they don’t want the answers coming out . . .
Three Little Lies was a brilliant page turner of a read. A mix of friendship, lies and wondering if you really know someone as well as you think you do. We all have secrets, maybe we all tell the odd white lie. But what if those lies have life long consequences?
The book alternates between characters view points. But we mostly hear from Ellen who is best friends with Sasha who has disappeared. Ellen is extremely concerned about Sasha and takes on the responsibility to try to find her. As Ellen’s hunt continues, she finds out that maybe she didn’t know her best friend as well as she thought she did.
The characters bring about a range of feelings for the reader. Some characters I didn’t like, some I felt sorry for. For an Author to invoke feelings about characters, I know that she has written them well.
The plot took me on a hunt for a girl, her secrets and her lies. What I found shall remain unsaid ( by me). Read Three Little Lies and let Laura Marshall tell you. You won’t regret it.
