Our Little Lies

Our Little Lies Summary

Marianne has a life others dream of. A beautiful townhouse on the best street in the neighbourhood. Three bright children who are her pride and joy.

Sometimes her past still hurts: losing her mother, growing up in foster care. But her husband Simon is always there. A successful surgeon, he’s the envy of every woman they’ve ever met. Flowers, gifts, trips to France – nothing is too good for his family.

Then Simon says another woman’s name. The way he lingers on it, Caroline, gives Marianne a shudder of suspicion, but she knows she can’t entertain this flash of paranoia.

In the old days, she’d have distracted herself at work, but Marianne left her glamorous career behind when she got married. She’d speak to a friend, but she’s too busy with her children and besides, Simon doesn’t approve of the few she has left.

It’s almost by accident that Marianne begins to learn more about Caroline. But once she starts, she can’t stop. Because what she finds makes her wonder whether the question she should be asking is not ‘should she be jealous’, but... ‘should she be scared’?

Fans of The Girl on the Train andI Let You Go looking for a dark, gripping psychological thriller, with a final twist that will put their jaw on the floor, will love Our Little Lies.

Our little lies3 star

Although this book was a good read. It was very repetitive and at times very hard to keep reading. The end did have a great twist if you can get there.35

Our Little Lies1 star

Irritating and unlikable protagonist. Did not draw me in or keep me interested at all. Couldn’t make it past the first fifty pages.15


Fantastic Book5 star

Sat in emergency with suspected appendicitis, I bought this book purely because it was $.99 and I was desperate to read something whilst I waited and I am so glad I did, what a page turner, I could not put my iPad down, I was gripped from page 1 right through to the end, fantastic book, the suspense was driving me crazy. Great book, suspenseful and thrilling would highly recommend it55
