Review of ‘We Are All Liars’ by Carys Jones

The Fierce Five have been friends since early childhood. Once close, they have drifted apart as adult life takes hold. In an attempt to rekindle the feelings they all had for each other, Gail invites the women to her cabin in the Scottish Highlands for the weekend. Will they find that friendship again, or will they discover that the lies we all tell each other are too big and too serious?

‘We Are All Liars’ is exhilarating, terrifying and very, very, clever. Told from the point of view of Allie, we see the lives the women lead now and how that has affected their friendship group. But the past cannot and will not be forgotten. There are secrets and lies that have remained hidden for twenty years, but once the women are together it becomes increasingly difficult to keep them from surfacing. I was shocked and surprised and could never have guessed where it was all going. Carys Jones took me on a rollercoaster ride, one I could not get off until the brilliantly conceived twist was revealed. What an amazing story.

Review of ‘Death On The Aisle’ by Kate Johnson

Molly Higgins is the girl next door, sweet, kind and hardworking. She also has a knack for solving murders. At last she is about to marry her movie star boyfriend, Conor, but when a murder happens in Port Trevan just days from Molly’s celebrity packed wedding, she has to get involved. With her sister home after many years abroad,  and her fiancé Conor busy filming nearby, she’s once again up to her eyes in mysteries, just when she could do with time to finalise the wedding plans. 

This is the first of this particular series I’ve read, but I’m so intrigued, that I’ll have to go back and read the others now. The setting of the beautiful Cornish coast was idyllic.  The story was perfectly plotted, with twists and turns and surprising revelations. The tension near the finale had me gripped. The story was very well written, with so many great characters – likeable and not so likeable. This is a series that could and should go on and on. I’ll be waiting with bated breath for the next one.
