SEVEN LIES By Elizabeth Kay

SYNOPSIS

It all started with one little lie….

Jane and Marnie have been inseparable since they were eleven years old. They have a lot in common. In their early twenties they both fell in love and married handsome young men.

But Jane never liked Marnie’s husband. He was always so loud and obnoxious, so much larger than life. Which is rather ironic now, of course.

Because if Jane had been honest – if she hadn’t lied – then perhaps her best friend’s husband might still be alive….

This is Jane’s opportunity to tell the truth, the question is: Do you believe her?

MY REVIEW

Jane is the narrator, her and Marnie have been friends since they were 11, but how reliable is Jane as the narrator, after all we only have her version of events, over the chapters she will tell of seven lies she told Marnie.

Jane married but she hadn’t invited anyone to her wedding, so when Marnie gets married, she doesn’t like Marnie’s choice of husband. Is she jealous, or is she seeing something we can’t. She describes him as arrogant, not good enough for Marnie. As well as many other qualities she doesn’t like.

This is a well written story, finding yourself wondering who to believe, could this all be true. Having to read on to see what has actually happened, because the reader doesn’t know exactly, so the tension grows with each chapter. Both women are widows but how?

Told in first person by Jane. I enjoyed this at times I felt Marnie used Jane to a certain extent when she needed something, but again Jane is telling the story. She seems obsessed with Marnie and jealous of anyone who gets in the middle of their friendship.

I think when we are young we all think friendships will last forever, some do but as we grow we change, get married, move on. Maybe with social media and the internet it’s easier to keep in touch if you have moved away now.

An interesting read, I give this one ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

I would like to thank #netgalley and #LittleBrownOublishers for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest, fair unbiased review.
