NetGalley Review - After the Lie

After the Lie: A gripping novel about love, loss and family secrets - Kerry Fisher

After the Lie is a great family saga full of secrets and suspense. This story involves lies, jealousy, regret, and perhaps a little forgiveness along the way.

I really enjoyed this book. It had a steady pace and the plot was well written. I loved how the story progressed throughout. It was hard to put down and sometimes had me feeling on edge.

There was a great mix of characters. I loved getting to know them all, and found it interesting how my views of the characters would keep changing throughout the story, leaving me with a feeling of not being completely sure who I sided with or how I wanted things to turn out for everyone.

I loved how the secret remained a mystery for a while, giving me time to conjure up all sorts of ideas in my mind of what it may be. I felt quite emotional about the huge impact a thirty year old secret managed to have on the main characters. I found myself imagining how different the present might have been if the secret had been revealed all those years ago.

On a lighter note, I loved Lydia’s thoughts. They made me giggle on numerous occasions. I think we have the same sense of humour.

This is the first book I have read by this author, but having enjoyed this story and the author’s writing style, I’m definitely interested in reading more by Kerry Fisher in the future.

I would like to thank the publisher, Bookouture for allowing me a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
