Book Review: Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney

Another amazing psychological thriller and debut novel, full of twists and turns and shocks. I loved it!

Amber Reynolds is lying in a coma in hospital. Why is she there? Right from the start, the story keeps us guessing, overshadowed by a sinister malevolence that makes us suspect everyone of a crime we are not yet sure of. The story jumps from present day, where Amber lies trapped in a comatose state, aware of everything that goes on around her, to her life prior to the unknown accident, including her relationship with husband Paul and her erratic work life with a megalomaniac boss. Alongside this are diary excerpts, describing an unhappy and startling childhood.

What role does sister Claire play in Amber’s life? How happy was Amber and Paul’s marriage? And why does Amber seem slightly crazy?

Personally, I couldn’t put this book down. It had me gripped right until the very end, when it climaxed with yet another excellent twist. Debut novels this year are of a very high standard, especially in the psychological thriller genre and this one definitely deserves 5 stars on Goodreads. Highly recommended!
