Everyone has a secret they’ll do anything to hide…

Twenty-five years ago, the body of sixteen-year-old Eve Knox was found in the caves near her home in small-town Grotto, Iowa—discovered by her best friend, Maggie, and her sister, Nola. There were a handful of suspects, including her boyfriend, Nick, but without sufficient evidence the case ultimately went cold.

For decades Maggie was haunted by Eve’s death and that horrible night. Now a detective in Grotto, and seven months pregnant, she is thrust back into the past when a new piece of evidence surfaces and the case is reopened. As Maggie investigates and reexamines the clues, secrets about what really happened begin to emerge. But someone in town knows more than they’re letting on, and they’ll stop at nothing to keep the truth buried deep.

Miss W’s Review:

5 stars!!!!

This is How I Lied is a thrilling ride!

This is the second book I have read by Heather Gudenkauf and this is another WINNER!!!!!

The story revolves around Eve, who was murdered 25 years ago and is yet to be solved. The story is told in alternating time lines, 1995 and 2020, past during the murder and the current time.

The story is told in three different points of view, Eve, her sister Nola, and her best friend Maggie.

This is a well developed, complex, multi-layered well written story.

The characters are well developed and fleshed out.

This story kept me on the edge of my seat!!!! What a rollercoaster ride.

Highly recommend!!!
