Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

Setting: England
Genre: Suspense/Mystery
Publisher: Berkley
Author: Clare Mackintosh
Release Date: March 13, 2018

She should be extremely happy, but tragic events from just a year ago haunt Anna Johnson. She is a new mom and has a loving boyfriend, but her parents' suicides weigh heavily. First, her dad jumped off a cliff, and months later her grieving mom did the same.

Anna's life changes when a card saying, "Suicide? Think again" arrives. She immediately goes to the police. That triggers a chain reaction that puts this new mom and her daughter at risk. Someone out there knows the truth, and the more Anna and the police dig to unravel the truth, the more dangerous it will become.

Hooked. I was so completely hooked by the time I'd read the first page. The description of Anna nursing her new daughter was so tenderly written. Her maternal instinct made me really like her. As the mystery gets underway, I couldn't stop reading. I knew one part of the mystery, but some of it I just didn't predict. I found myself holding my breath at times waiting to see what more could possibly happen.

Let Me Lie is another fascinating novel by Clare Mackintosh. I've yet to be disappointed by any of her books. Once again, her novel is one I highly recommend.
