Hey everyone, today I am bringing you a review for the book My Last Lie by Ella Drummond. I would like to thank Sarah Hardy from Books On The Bright Side, Hera Books and Ella for providing me with a free copy for review purposes.
New beginnings. Old secrets.
Theo and Pilar. The perfect couple.
Successful, beautiful and very much in love.
Until a year ago – and the tragedy that nearly tore them apart.
When their baby died, a part of them died with him.
Now they’re trying to rebuild themselves, moving to a stunning house in rural Cornwall.
But someone knows all their secrets – and will stop at nothing to disturb their fragile peace.
Theo and Pilar are about to learn that you can try to hide – but you can never outrun your past.
A unputdownable, gripping psychological thriller that will hook you until the final shocking twist. Fans of The Girl on the Train, Behind Closed Doors and The Wife Between Us will be captivated.
This was a bit of a slow build story for me and it was because I was eager to see what happened. I really enjoyed My Last Lie and felt for the main character Pilar.
The pacing of the story and how it unfolded was perfect, I didn’t find that things were rushed or dragged out and I love Ella’s writing style. Once I hit about 25% into the story I was struggling to put it down.
I would have loved to see more of the relationship between Pilar and and her mother and would like to see a Novella or another book which it features more as there is clearly some tense backstory there, especially on her mother’s side.
This was a great mystery thriller and I would highly recommend it to others. A solid 4 stars from me.
Ella Drummond recently signed a two-book deal with Hera Books. Her first psychological thriller, My Last Lie will be published in February 2019 and is available for pre-order now.
