“Every Last Lie” is my second book by Ms. Kubica that I have read. While “The Good Girl” is still my favorite book by Kubica I still want to give you my thoughts on it her latest novel releasing June 27th 2017.
Let me cut to the chase with this review, the beginning to mid book was very slow for me. I enjoyed reading “Before:Nick” because it gives you clues to what maybe caused the wreck and death of Nick. Before Nick also tells secrets that Clara knew nothing about. I really felt for Clara as she was widowed with two kids, one of which is only days old. Clara thinks there is a killer on the loose and that Nick just didn’t wreck and die. Clara goes to no end to get answers.
Throughout the book Mary builds up the story and leads you to believe the ending will be just as good. I felt that this book has SOOOO much potential but was very let down with how it ended. After finishing the book I was let down. There is a lot of cat/mouse upside down running around then a flatline ending.
With that being said I give “Every Last Lie”
It hurts me to give it such a low rating but I feel I have to be honest for readers. However, what I took from the book could be completely different for someone else. I’ll still be a fan of Mary Kubica!
