Lies by T.M. Logan

I know I've said this on my blog a million times, but I can usually see the twist coming from a mile away in most thrillers. That being said, the twist in Lies by T.M. Logan REALLY threw me for a loop! 

When Joe and his son are driving home one evening, they see Joe's wife's car pull into a hotel. Thinking nothing of it, they innocently decide to follow her and surprise her. But Joe could have never known how pulling into that parking garage that evening would seal his fate. Now, being framed for a murder he didn't commit and digitally harassed by the supposed dead man, Joe has to fight to find out the real story and prove his innocence before it's too late.

There were so many moments in this book that had my heart beating out of my chest! This story was full of vivid description and detail that put me right in the scene. The suspense was real, and I was so desperately rooting for Joe. He really is the definition of "the average Joe" and I felt terrible that he was mixed up in all of this. I loved the comic relief that the son William provides, and how Joe's relationship with William shows what a good man and father he truly is.

For a pretty long thriller, it read extremely quickly. There were a lot of times that a scene or situation just felt "wrong" to me, but I could never put my finger on why. Like I said, I did not see this twist coming, and I absolutely loved what it turned out to be!

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Thanks so much to St. Martin's Press for both an ARC and a finished copy of this suspenseful read! Lies by T.M. Logan is out now, so be sure to pick up a copy! It's the perfect thrilling read for this fall season.

This book took me by surprise too! What did you think of the wife? I never liked her at all!

I want his one!! I can never guess the twist so I think with a book that I can guess the twist everyone will get it.

I'm with you I can normally predict when is going to happen. I did that this week by chapter three of a book - it was still good though. Love it when I find a book I can't predict (unless there haven't been any signs what-so-ever). Great review.
