Publisher's Summary

Wife. Mother. Liar.

At first glance Emma and Lucie seem very different, but they share an unspeakable vice. Beautiful, wealthy Emma appears to have it all with a loving husband and a seemingly successful life, but a restless craving has driven her to foolish actions. Meanwhile, young widow Lucie is struggling to make ends meet while coping with a troubled five-year-old.

When the law catches up with them they soon discover what they have in common: They lie. A lot.

Punished with community service, Emma and Lucie form an intense friendship, finding an unlikely third ally in Florrie, a septuagenarian who offers wise words and a shoulder to cry on.

But the lies don’t stop. They are hiding their misdemeanours from their loved ones and neither want their shame to come to light. As these unhealthy relationships drive them towards destruction, can they survive the fallout from their deceptions or will their lies destroy everything they love the most?

Revised edition: This edition of Everyday Lies includes editorial revisions.

Worth finishing

It start out slow but I’m glad I listened to the whole book. I ended up enjoying it. It’s worth listening to the whole book, don’t give up because it’s slow & uninteresting at the beginning 🙁. I ended up loving the characters.

Well done

Narrated well and a pleasant voice. I recommend it to read along with the book. Just my preference combining the two together though.

Excellent characters and story

Highly entertaining and fell in love with the characters. The author took her time to develop what could have been a predictable storyline. I’ve not read this sort of book for years - but this adult female fiction for those of us who read “chick lit” in the 90s. Instead of stories about women and their love interests, it was about secrets that could destroy us, which when shared with fellow strugglers can provide the basis for lasting new friendships in unlikely places.

I’ve pre-ordered her next book. Fab job!
