Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

4 Star

The police say it was suicide.
Anna says it was murder.

Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to question her parents’ deaths. But by digging up their past, she’ll put her future in danger. Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie…

I always love a great, twisty mystery novel and I have always liked Clare Mackintosh therefore I was quite pleased to receive this book for review. The story started off kind of depressing, with Anna coming to terms with the recent deaths of both of her parents. I can imagine that being somewhat of an insurmountable place to be, so I definitely felt for her.

She never can let the double suicides go though and feels that something just isn't right, and of course, that is what this whole book is about. We learn about what she finds out and how, and how very terrible it is to discover the truth sometimes. Couple the investigation into her parents' suicides with the uncertainty of her new life with her partner and child, Anna was a person with a lot on her mind.

There were a lot of things that happened in the story that I was not expecting and the element of surprise did appeal to me.The story annoyed me at times though and at times I liked it but although I enjoyed this novel, and the twists within, I did not think it was really plausible so I didn't completely love it.

Thank you to Penguin Random House for our review copy.  All opinions are our own.
