To tell you the truth

everybody lies ...

"The story starts with two voices — the first from a 9-year old child, and the second from a successful novelist, Lucy Harper.  Soon you realise they are one and the same.


Lucy’s bestselling crime books about DS Eliza Grey has gained her fame and wealth; it has also bought her the jealousy and envy of her husband and assistant Dan.
 
Then he goes missing.
 
As a child Lucy’s younger brother Teddy goes missing in the middle on the night – does Lucy know more about both disappearances than she’s telling?
 
This novel drew me in immediately.  I held my breath to the very last page.  One of the best page-turners I have read this year - Excellent.
 
I would like to thank NetGalley and Penguin Random House for the opportunity of reading an advanced copy in exchange for my honest review - this book is due for release on June 25, 2020.

The Midnight Library

One Library, Infinite Lives

by Matt Haig

I fell into listening to The Midnight Library. I had heard of the Author but knew had not read this book description. This book deserves my 5-star rating.

We follow the trials & disappointments of Nora and her life filled with guilt. Matt Haig reminds us that even a ‘perfect life’ has some regrets. I have never read a clearer or more straightforward depiction of how anxiety, depression or thoughts of suicide can overtake your everyday thinking.

Choose one thing every day to celebrate; some days, choose two because there will always be days that you are unable to choose any.
