REVIEW: Fragile Lies By Laura Elliot

fragile lies


His name is Michael Carmody.
He is a writer and a father.
His son is lying in a coma, fighting for his life.

Her name is Lorraine Cheevers.
She is an artist and mother.
An illicit affair has destroyed her marriage.

Michael is desperate to find the couple who left his son for dead, a victim of a hit and run.

Lorraine is desperate to start a new life for her and her daughter.

Michael and Lorraine are about to cross paths – damaged souls, drawn to one another.

They don’t know that their lives are already connected.

They don’t know the web of lies surrounding them.

They are each searching for the truth. But when they find it, it could destroy them both.


Thank you to both Bookouture and Net gallery for sending this to me for an honest review

So I read this novel in one day I found it so so so hard to put it down.  Laura Elliot set up both sides of the story very quickly which gave you the backgrounds of both Michael and Lorraine.

I found this book gripping, and extremely well written with  plenty of twists and turns along the way which will unsettle you (in a good way)  You think you have the ending worked out bu think again

Randomly this book made me think  of the quote below I have seen a few times.

“There is no doubt fiction makes a better job of the truth.”

This is the first book I have read by this author and I will definitely reading others

Fragile Lies is out now
