FIRSTLY I WOULD LIKE TO THANK HELEN CLAIRE AND BLOODHOUND BOOKS FOR INVITING ME TO BE PART OF THIS BLOG TOUR FOR BEAUTIFUL LIAR BY LOUISE MULLINS. IT HAS BEEN A REAL PLEASURE

Erica describes her successful, lawyer husband as handsome and charismatic when she recounts their whirlwind marriage. But nothing is what it seems.
What is Erica hiding?
Was Joel’s death really an accident?
Sometimes the truth can be ugly.
“A twisty suspenseful read that examines what goes on behind closed doors” Betsy Reavley, best-selling author of The Optician’s Wife, The Quiet Ones and Frailty
Beautiful Liar is a powerful suspense thriller by best-selling author, Louise Mullins. It’s the perfect read for fans of authors like Louise Jensen, Lisa Hall, Rachel Abbott and Kathryn Croft.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Oh wow, how I loved this book. An impulsive decision that would give one person her life back and yet end another. As the man takes his last breath there is still no regret, still no blame to him. Her fault, all her fault because if she had told him how she felt he could have fixed things. Didn’t he always?
This story begins in the present and it is chilling, a coldness in the air that would run through you on the hottest day because there is little emotion accompanied by an almost morbid curiosity and an acceptance that it is all over, relief not sorrow. Cunning and cold with acting that would be worthy of an Oscar. The story then falls back into the past to how Erica and Joel met.
I loved that I was able to move into both of these characters minds, to become them and feel how they felt, both of them telling the same story from their own point of view. It was fascinating and frightening at the same time because you see through their eyes and feel the excitement and power the fear and submission it creates. It makes you doubt your own judgement it is so well written. A super novel that I highly recommend but please be warned there are abusive and violent scenes in this novel.
