My Lies, Your Lies
by Susan Lewis
His life was destroyed by a lie. Her life will be ruined by the truth.
Joely tells other people’s secrets for a living. As a ghost writer, she’s used to scandal – but this just might be her strangest assignment yet.
Freda has never told her story to anyone before. But now she’s ready to set the record straight and to right a wrong that’s haunted her for forty years.
Freda’s memoir begins with a 15-year-old girl falling madly in love with her teacher. As the story unravels, Joely is spun deeper into a world of secrets and lies.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and its my first time reading anything by Susan Lewis – she has been on my radar for a long time but as is the norm I just never got around to picking up her books, and boy why did I wait!
My Lies, Your Lies, had me engrossed from the start with Joely heading off to be a ghostwriter in Devon, for the reclusive author F.M Donahue. The assignment couldn’t have a better or perhaps worst time, for Joely who’s husband was moving in with her best friend after their affair came to light.
Freda Donahue is a very eccentric and strange character, she definitely gave me a creepy vibe for some reason at the beginning that I couldn’t pin point until the story unravelled and peaked at the end when all was revealed.
Freda is wanting to air some skeletons in her closest and right a wrong from the past, and by enlisting Joely as her ghost writer she hopes to set the record straight. But it would appear that there is something more nefarious at play and it involves Joely and her family.
I loved the twists this book took us on with the reading of each chapter, I did not anticipate things to turn out as they did.
