Goodreads: Two women. Many aliases.

Meg Williams. Maggie Littleton. Melody Wilde. Different names for the same person, depending on the town, depending on the job. She’s a con artist who erases herself to become whoever you need her to be—a college student. A life coach. A real estate agent. Nothing about her is real. She slides alongside you and tells you exactly what you need to hear, and by the time she’s done, you’ve likely lost everything.

Kat Roberts has been waiting ten years for the woman who upended her life to return. And now that she has, Kat is determined to be the one to expose her. But as the two women grow closer, Kat’s long-held assumptions begin to crumble, leaving Kat to wonder who Meg’s true target is.

The Lies I Tell is a twisted domestic thriller that dives deep into the psyches and motivations of two women and their unwavering quest to seek justice for the past and rewrite the future. 

Ope’s Opinion: The Lies I Tell was a great read. I enjoyed the story line in The Last Flight better. Again this story had two woman at the center of it – both strong woman dealing with very different, difficult circumstances.

I admit that the first couple of chapters I wasn’t sure where the story line was going. But very quickly we were made aware of most of the secrets that drove Meg to do what she was doing. Seeing all it all from both Kat’s and Meg’s perspectives made the story intense and move very quickly.

The ending was not what I was expecting and is still leaving me think… is this how it should end in real life? I like that I am still pondering it.
