READ MY BOOK REVIEW
𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗘𝗪 𝗦𝗡𝗔𝗣𝗦𝗛𝗢𝗧: While I love the darker side of Alessandra Torre’s novels this one wasn’t as compulsively readable as her former release. It’s good, but not my favorite of hers.
The Good Lie was one of my most anticipated reads of July 2021. Why? Because Alessandra’s darker reads are my absolute favorite. Her former release, Every Last Secret was one of my favorite books last year and I was hoping for a repeat with my feelings towards this one. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. This book was slower, didn’t have the excitement when it came to compulsively turning the pages to figure out “who-dun-it”, and the major “twist” at the end left me feeling indifferent. I think I had it figured out too early on that when it was revealed I didn’t much care.
Is this a bad book? No. Absolutely not. Alessandra has a knack at writing dark psychological thrillers, and I hope she continues to write them because I’ll always read them. It’s just that this one didn’t WOW me like some of her other ones. Would I recommend it to fellow readers? Yes, I would. Just because it wasn’t the perfect book in my mind doesn’t mean it won’t be the perfect read for someone else.
Before I close out this review, I want readers to know that this book may contain triggers as it deals with horrific topics. Those triggers include kidnapping, rape/sexual assault, murder, and graphic violence. Most of these triggers are “off-page” meaning the author alludes to them but doesn’t talk about them in great detail.
