After doing my first ever cover reveal for After The lie I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this beauty. And I sure as hell wasn’t disappointed this book is has good has the cover if not better. I was totally sucked in by the prologue transporting us back to 1982, being a massive fan of the eighties decade I was like OMG I love it already. The more i read the more I loved it.
In this story we meet Lydia who has the ‘right’ kind of friends, her children are at the ‘right’ kind of school and she’s married to the ‘right’ sort of man – kind, steady, reliable Mark. But Lyndia has a secret that she has been hiding for 30 years! Having to change her name and move home, what is the big secret she is hiding?! To Lydia’s horror someone who knows her dark secret turns up at the school gates. His presence threatens to blow Lydia’s life apart.
After The Lie is one hell of a read, keeping me guessing what the secret is. This is my first novel that I have read by Kerry Fisher and I have to say It definitely won’t be my last I love Kerry’s creative writing skills building up tension and emotion has the story unfolds with some humour along the way…….what a rollercoaster of a ride. The characters are likeable and easy to relate to with some wonderful descriptions making me feel like I was in the story.
This is one breathtaking read which I highly recommend giving it 5 easy stars.
