Il matrimonio di Daisy e Simon è fantastico, non è vero? Daisy è un’insegnante e Simon un designer di interni. Sembrano proprio perfetti l’uno per l’altra e la loro intesa fa invidia a tutti gli amici e ai conoscenti.
Dopo anni passati felicemente insieme, l’arrivo della piccola Millie ha coronato i loro sogni. Sembra difficile immaginare una felicità più perfetta: una splendida famiglia di tre persone. Tutto considerato, il fatto che Simon beva un po’ troppo non è poi così importante. Daisy ci è abituata, sa che succede solo quando ha bisogno di rilassarsi dopo una giornata pesante. Finché una sera, a una festa, le cose vanno terribilmente fuori controllo. Da quel momento la felice famigliola non sarà mai più la stessa...

I went into this one blind - well, Adele Parks had written it and that was good enough for me. Happily I wasn’t disappointed. With a title of Lies, Lies, Lies, it’s clear that there will be secrets galore, some of them close to the surface, just waiting to be discovered, whilst others are deeply buri Leggi tutto
I'm going to say straight up that I did not like this book. Yes, as the title says it's about lies. The lies told by odious characters, none of which are likeable. It's about alcoholism, bullying and more. The worst part is a small child is involved. Other people have rated this book, so I'll leave
The first half was BAD. The second half was WORSE! I had everything figured out at the 32% point, except for the "twist" in the epilogue which was so ridiculous that you could not figure it out, no matter how good of a sleuth you are. One star for the author's accurate portrayal of the downward spiral Leggi tutto

Wow where do I start? .... Deep breath!!! This book is like a runaway train with its many twists and turns, ups and downs, not knowing where it’s final destination will be and as exhilarating as a runaway train!!

Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest LIES, LIES, LIES is not a nice book about nice people. It's a surprisingly gritty, nasty little book that doesn't offer up any easy excuses or answers for the very flawed humans inside its pages. The blurb and cover for this book are a littl
Ever since Simon took he’s first sip of beer aged just six, an unhealthy obsession to alcohol was born. He’s dad having been a heavy drink and for the impressionable young child leads to so many ill judged choices. Now 36 and married to Daisy with daughter Millie, life couldn’t be more perfect for him Leggi tutto
