1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.
This is how Alice Feeney’s debut novel, SOMETIMES I LIE, starts. And fans of psychological thrillers won’t be able to stop reading after that, according to Maximum Shelf Awareness (and librarian fans on #ewgc!).
Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. Though she can hear everyone around her, no one knows because she’s in a coma. But she doesn’t remember what happened. And she has a sneaking suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, the narratives build and collide for an ending that leaves readers speechless.
“SOMETIMES I LIE is meticulously plotted, deliciously twisty and gripping to the very end.” — Shelf Awareness
