The Liar’s Wife is a true thriller that I couldn’t put down. Ella is a single woman, working as a film editor and living a quiet, isolated life. One night she is in an accident, wakes up in the hospital only to find her “husband” anxiously awaiting her recovery so he can bring her home. Although he’s not really her husband, he’s not a stranger either. He’s someone from her past with the key to secrets that she needs to remain hidden. Even though you can likely see where the plot is generally headed, the back story, revealed tantalizingly slowly, has plenty of twists that aren’t fully revealed until the very end. There are a couple of questions that weren’t fully answered, but nothing that took away from my enjoyment of this book. I was pulled into this book, very anxious along with Ella as she was trapped in this new life and wondering how, even if, she’d pull through. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture Publishing for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who wants a real page-turner.

This book was a real page turner. I thought that I had it all worked out, but the last 10 pages or so told me I hadn't figured it out at all. I thoroughly enjoyed this book & recommend it to anyone who enjoys staying up all night, reading a book under the bedclothes so as to not wake the other residents of the house.
