This one has amazing reviews so far!

This was such a fast paced read! Following the ins and outs of Meg’s cons starting with her trying to find a place to live other than her car which started an idea once she recognized someone on the dating app.

This had a lot of misdirection and even our narrator told us narrator’s can be unreliable.

Both the females in the story have different directives.  Kat blaming her for something that happened in the midst of her first con. But Meg is deep in the con that started it all when they meet irl. 

The ending was awesome. Will we get another book or do we just get to make up what happens in our heads? With some thrillers since I don’t read that many I don’t like when they are still at large but the loose tie that needs to be dealt with at the end is necessary.

❓ This or That:
Sweet or Salty
Revenge or Forgiveness
Summer or Fall

Meg Williams. Maggie Littleton. Melody Wilde. Different names for the same person, depending on the town, depending on the job. She’s a con artist who erases herself to become whoever you need her to be—a college student. A life coach. A real estate agent. Nothing about her is real. She slides alongside you and tells you exactly what you need to hear, and by the time she’s done, you’ve likely lost everything.

Kat Roberts has been waiting ten years for the woman who upended her life to return. And now that she has, Kat is determined to be the one to expose her. But as the two women grow closer, Kat’s long-held assumptions begin to crumble, leaving Kat to wonder who Meg’s true target is.

The Lies I Tell is a twisted domestic thriller that dives deep into the psyches and motivations of two women and their unwavering quest to seek justice for the past and rewrite the future.

Thank you bookmarked and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
