The Lying Game by @ruthwarewriter #BookReview

Synopsis:

The text message is just three words: I need you.

Isa drops everything, takes her baby daughter and heads straight to Salten. She spent the most significant days of her life at boarding school on the marshes there, days which still cast their shadow over her now.

Something terrible has been found on the beach. Something which will force Isa to confront her past, together with the three best friends she hasn't seen for years, but has never forgotten. Theirs is no cosy reunion: Salten isn't a safe place for them, after what they did.

At school the girls used to play the Lying Game. They competed to convince people of the most outrageous stories. But for some, did the boundary between fact and fantasy become too blurred?

And how much can you really trust your friends?

My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

The Lying Game is a fantastic example of what happens when lies get out of control.  They have been best friends and even though the years have passed, Isa, Kate, Fatima, and Thea are as close as ever.  They each had there own secrets, but Kate's secret could possibly destroy them all.  Will their friendship be able to survive the truth?

This was a very entertaining mystery.  It had so many twists, that I was completely engrossed until the very end.  The ending threw me for a loop, I didn't see it coming.  An absolutely great novel, The Lying Game is one  everyone should read.
