Claire is finally where she wants to be and is soon to be married to non other than Jack Comptom, a member of one of the wealthiest families in the world. Their exclusive marriage is to take place on the Comptom family’s Italian island. Off the bat things start to go haywire and the family is forced to suspect those closest to them of sabotage.
Her Darks Lies, is very much a locked room mystery. There are plenty of twists, turns, and drama that I won’t get into because I don’t want to spoil anything. From a narrator perspective we get both Claire and the antagonist’s POV, which provides a bit of conflict within the story. I would have liked to see a bit more character development, and honestly I didn’t really love any of the characters, which I think really makes you suspicious of everyone.
Told in the vein of a Lucy Foley mystery, I rounded my review up to a 4 from 3.5 star rating. I did really enjoy the story and it’s a page turner for sure. However, the ending left me questioning what really happened to Jack’s first wife. I prefer to have clear answers at the end of a thriller such as this one, and that along with a few plot holes at the end, knocked of a half star for me.
This book is out now and if you love a page turning thriller than you’ll really enjoy Her Dark Lies.
