The Last Time I Lied

Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she--or anyone--saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.

Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings--massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends.

Yet it's immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp's twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present.

And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price.

My Review

This is the second book I have read from this author. So far I have enjoyed both books. This book has a psychological aspect to it. Although, it was more of a slow, silent element than a bold one.

The transition from the present to the past was smooth. However, the story took place more in the present then the past. Yet, the little bits of the past were like teasers. Which got me more excited to find out the truth about what happened to the disappearance of the girls.

There were several theories about what might have happened to the girls. One even had me thinking that Emma was insane. However, none of the theories compared to the actual ending. I did want to point out the ending. It was a good one. There is nothing worse than reading a whole book just to have a disappointing ending. You will not want to miss out on reading this book! I am not lying.
