One More Lie

Charlotte wants to start fresh. She wants to forget her past, forget prison and, most of all, forget Sean. But old habits die hard. Despite the ankle monitor she must wear as part of her parole agreement and frequent visits to her therapist, she soon finds herself sliding back toward the type of behavior that sent her to prison in the first place. The further down that path she goes, however, the closer she gets to the crime that put her in prison all those years ago. And that's the one memory she can't face. Until, one day, Sean tracks her down.



My Review


I enjoy a really good psychological thriller. Sadly, this book did not do anything for me. I found the thrill and intensity that I have come to expect from these types of books to be lacking for me. 

Charlotte is the main voice and character of this book. It is her story to tell. The story switches back and forth between the present and past; slowly trying to draw the reader into Charlotte's live. We are then supposed to figure out if Charlotte is reformed or living one big "lie". That lie is played out between the past and present. 

It is not hard to figure out what the lie is and how the story will end. Yet, this does not mean that I did not stop reading this book when I put all of the piece together early on. I did finish this book, if only for a slight glimmer of hope that some twist would happen. No twists.
