On the blog today I have a review for Lie, Lie Again by Stacy Wise for Suzy Approved Book Tours.
About the Book:
Release Date: January 1, 2021 Lake Union Publishing
For three women with so much to hide, there’s no such thing as a little white lie…
All three women who live at 1054 Mockingbird Lane have secrets…and with a body at the bottom of their apartment building’s staircase, those secrets need to stay buried.
Sylvia Webb has a plan. And a potential Mr. Right. He’s sweet, simple, and dependably clueless about what she’s up to. The only thing unpredictable about him is his needy ex-girlfriend, who is this close to shattering Sylvia’s dreams. But Sylvia’s not going to let that happen.
Riki McFarlan has a good career and an amazing boyfriend who wants to settle down. If only she didn’t have feelings for her neighbor—who happens to be her close friend’s husband. With everything going so right, why is Riki flirting with something so wrong, so…dangerous?
Embry Taylor is as devoted to her children as she is to her husband, who’s a bartender by night, an aspiring actor by day. She is his biggest fan. But with his career not taking off and tensions high, even sweet Embry has something she’s desperate to keep hidden.
Lies, secrets, and revenge. For three neighbors with stakes so high, someone is headed for a downfall.
Miss W’s Review:
Lie, Lie Again by Stacy Wise is a really well written what I would call domestic suspense with a unique premise.
The book grabs you from the very beginning, with a dead body in the basement.
The story itself is really more about the three women, Riki, Embry, and and Sylvia. They all are in close proximity to the dead body at 1054 Mockingbird Lane as they all live in apartments there.
I enjoyed the stories of the three women. The characters were complex, dynamic and well fleshed out.
It is in the stories that lead us back to the mystery of the dead body in the basement.
I really enjoyed this well written story. There are secrets, deceit and some great moments of hilarity.
Highly recommend this book to readers of all genres. There is a little bit of something for everyone in this perfectly paced story.
