Excellent book! Her books are very complicated and yet easy to read. One of the better psychological thrillers recently read. Exciting to the very end.

This book was a great read. There were so many twists and turns right up to the very last page. This was my first time reading this author and I will be looking to read more.

A great read. Clare does not disappoint.

Plot. New beginnings aren't immune to the past.

I really enjoyed all the twists and turns. Nothing is as it first seems and it is very easy to to make assumptions. Just when I thought everything was resolved, there's that end! Claire Mackintosh may be a little formulaic but if it works, why not?

I really loved the author's first book, I Let You Go. However, her two most recent novels have been a big disappointment. This book, like the others, was a quick and easy read, but the storyline was a bit convoluted and the conclusion felt like it did not add up in the end. I probably won't be reading any more of her books, sadly.

A thrilling read that keeps you on your toes, guessing at possible theories along the way. Some drastic plot changes along the way to keep things interesting. I couldn’t put the book down!

The problem with books that are so good is that the authors who write them will often follow the same format, hoping for another winner. Mackintosh has done this with her last two books. I loved her first title, but the others haven’t lived up to the same expectation. On the other hand, Let Me Lie was, at least for me, better than her second work. Again there’s a twist, which I admit I expected, but didn’t get correct. What made the book better was the last two sentences. I’m not going to spoil anything, but I definitely didn’t expect it and it absolutely made the story for me.

Well written story involving a family who is dealing with suicide. As this story develops there are many twists and turns that keep you engaged until the very end - and even then is it really the end??????? Keeps your interest until the very last line on the last page. Highly recommend.

It was hard to grasp what I was reading right at first. It is well worth the time! I will be reading more by this author. This book is about suscide and the aftermath of the person left behind to cope with the emotions and the affects. Full of twist and turns you will not want to miss this well written book.
