We all have our reasons for being who we are—but what if being someone else could get you what you want?

After a devastating betrayal, a young woman sets off on an obsessive path to justice, no matter what dark family secrets are revealed. What she doesn’t know—she isn’t the only one plotting her revenge.

An affluent daughter of privilege. A glamorous manipulative wannabe. A determined reporter, in too deep. A grieving widow who must choose her new reality. Who will be the first to lie? And when the stakes are life and death, do a few lies really matter?

Miss W’s Review:

5 Incredible Stars!

First of all, I was ALL CONSUMED by The First to Lie!!! The story is brilliant and addicting. This book is so twisted that you literally will not know which end is up and in the BEST POSSIBLE WAY!

Perfectly paced and brilliantly executed, there are lies within lies with the lies in this book and its delicious!

Characters that are complex, complicated and completely fleshed out in a way that you actually believe in them and cheer them on even if they may be a psychopath.

My excitement was palpable as I read this novel of justice and revenge filled with so many twists , I could not put this book down.

I devoured the story and my jaw was hanging open at the end.

Highly recommend !!!!!
