Behind Every Lie by Christina McDonald is set in Seattle and London as well as in the past and present. One minute Eva Hansen is having dinner with her mother, Kat, and in the next scene she is waking up in the hospital. Eva soon finds out that her mother has been killed but she cannot remember that night since she was struck by lightning.
Eva doesn’t think that she killed her mother but then again she is not 100 percent sure either way. She travels to London against the advice of everyone – doctors, the police, lawyers, the boyfriend and her brother.
Her boyfriend, Liam, seems like he wants the best for Eva. Does he really though? In some ways, he is too overprotective and too controlling. Something about Liam was annoying me from the start.
While in London, she uncovers the biggest secret that her mother kept. Eva still cannot remember what happened until the very end. In a short amount of time, she discovers two of the biggest surprises of her life. Just one enormous surprise would devastate someone but two life-altering surprises seems excessive.
If you enjoy unraveling mysteries and secrets, then Behind Every Lie could be the book for you.
If you are an abuser or enjoy gaslighting your loved ones, then you might not totally enjoy this book. This book is too good for dillweeds who have to manipulate everyone to get their way.
