Book Review: Liars – Frances Vick ****

Unusually I’ve sat on this review for a week since I finished the book so that I could have a think about what I really think of it. Also – its a pretty tough review to write without giving away any of the complexities of the plot.

Jenny hasn’t had an easy life. Sal, her single mother, was good at picking the wrong kind of man. After years of living in a dodgy part of town and a love/hate relationship with the police they managed to escape from sleazy, violent Marc.

Freddie is Jenny’s best friend and always trying to help and support her. Encouraging her in her studies to become a therapist and keeping a close eye on the online blog that she writes to help keep herself sane. He would do anything for her.

David fell in love with Jenny the day that she walked into his classroom all those years ago. Beautiful and clever she is his perfect girl. He would do anything for her.

When Sal is discovered dead in the snow Jenny’s life is turned upside down. Dealing with the police and coping with the grief all prove to make her life very difficult.

Liars is a complex book. Told from the point of view of each of the main characters you are never entirely sure who is telling the truth and which of them is the Liar. With a plot that twists and turns constantly you’ll be on the edge of your seat and desperate to get to the end to discover the truth. It’s the perfect escape from those dark winter days. Curl up on a comfy sofa and see if you can catch the liar…

I love sharing my favourite books with friends - nearly always spoiler-free as I hate reading a synopsis of the whole book in other reviews.
