Review: Liquid Lies
Liquid Lies by Lois Lavrisa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller
Reading Level: New Adult
Recommended for: Fans of mysteries, esp. romantic suspense/thrillers
Trigger Warnings: sexual assault, murder, attempted murder
My Thoughts: Although this book was written before the official designation of the New Adult “genre”, this is precisely what it is: CiCi is 22 in most of the book (18 in the prologue), just out of college, and trying to put her life together when it ends up completely ripped apart. My heart just broke for her.
Estelle and Hazel were a complete hoot; they were sort of like Lucy and Ethel and definitely the comedy relief in this book. I actually figured out the mystery well in advance of the denouement, which is pretty unusual for me. I'm not sure if it was just super obvious or if I'm developing a suspicious mind...
All in all a highly enjoyable story, full of twists, turns, and red herrings, a devious plot, and generally very entertaining.
Disclosure: I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. I later noticed it was on NetGalley and added it to my reading over there so as to have the additional place to post the review. All opinions are my own.
Synopsis: One dead body.
One girl with a deadly secret.
Body count rising. Can she find the killer before she’s the next target?
