Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney
Release Date: March 13, 2018
My Rating: 5/5
Amber Reynolds is in a coma. Unable to move she cannot indicate that she can both hear and feel everything everyone is doing around her. She is trapped, listening to her loved ones and trying to piece together how she came to be here. The reason behind her coma, and the few days leading up to it, are blanks. Each memory regained begins to focus and clarify her situation, and reveals the danger posed by those around her.
With a razor-sharp debut thriller Alice Feeney takes the unreliable narrator trope, so popular in contemporary mysteries, and blows it out of the stratosphere. Every time you think you know what is going on another twist catches and disorients you. A psychological thriller that is sure to secure attention and acclaim (and is already locked for movie/ television adaptation) this genre-pushing suspense novel will have readers gaping and talking well through 2018. Look out for this one, it is worth the 8 month wait.
Many thanks to CrimebytheBook’s, Abby, for the ARC. Ecstatic to have had the chance to read this before it blows up the bestsellers.
