To Tell You the Truth


Y’all this book was so addicting, I once again binged it in a night. I really need to learn to spread these books out but they get me way to worked up to not binge it! Also just in case anyone is wondering, if my husband buys me a multi-million dollar home, using the money I earn, without asking me, in a neighborhood I want nothing to do with, and then get’s annoyed that I don’t want to live there, you can bet we are about to have ALLL THEEEE PROBLEEMMS! If he then ‘mysteriously’ went missing and I find out he’s having an affair and has been digging into my pass because my brother went missing when I was a kid, I WILL BE CELEBRATING. The End.

Lucy Harper has always been a story teller. Especially when it came to be being pressured by police when her brother, Teddy, went missing when she was 9 years old. Lucy had snuck out with her brother to watch a summer solstice bonfire, but only Lucy made it back home. Years later Lucy Harper is the successful author of the Eliza Grey series. Her readers love her writing and vivid depicts of Eliza. Depicting Eliza isn’t the hard part of her writing though, because Eliza has been Lucy’s imaginary friend since she was a child. The hard part is figuring out how much control Eliza has over Lucy’s life.

Not only does Lucy’s publisher not want to publish her newest book, but her husband Dan is also acting strange. His sudden disappearance though will bring all Lucy’s been hiding back to the surface. Maybe this time she’ll get some closure and figure out what happened to Teddy all those years ago.

Lucy is such an unreliable narrator. Does she have a multiple personality disorder, is she going crazy, or are her new neighbors out to get her? Lucy doesn’t trust anyone and certainly not herself or Eliza. I found myself wanting to stand up for Lucy because her meek personaility really needed to gain a back bone.

I really could have cared less about Dan disappearing, because he is the absolute worse. He once wanted to be a bestselling author, like Lucy, but instead is her assistant. He’s bitter and enjoys spending Lucy’s money. He’s constantly gaslighting her and honestly I was glad he disappeared.

The inability to trust any of the characters including Lucy, really make this book for me. I kept coming up with solution and then having them spoiled, which in my book makes a great thriller. Gilly Macmillian has really created a fantastic story that will keep you hooked. Most definitely reading more from her! This book is out NOW, get it HERE!
