Today I’ve picked A Suitable Lie; this is a book I’ve seen loads of rave reviews for and it sounds amazing. I definitely need to buy a copy soon – it’s on my ‘want to read’ list!
Title: A Suitable Lie
Author: Michael J Malone
Publisher: Orenda Books
Andy Boyd thinks he is the luckiest man alive. Widowed with a young child, after his wife dies in childbirth, he is certain that he will never again experience true love. Then he meets Anna. Feisty, fun and beautiful, she’s his perfect match, and she loves his son like he is her own. When Andy ends up in the hospital on his wedding night, he receives his first clue that Anna is not all that she seems. Desperate for that happy-ever-after, he ignores it—a dangerous mistake that could cost him everything.
Have you heard anything about this book, or have you got it on your TBR list?
MJM is one of those authors who highlights key modern issues in such a vivid and readable fashion. I do hope you get a chance to read it and also House Of Spines too
Me too! Heard great things about both!
A Suitable Lie sounds intriguing and a little creepy – definitely NOT the sort of book you read at bedtime.
I put it on my list as well!
Me too! It comes highly recommended. Ugh…so many books so little time!
I have a copy. Need to read soon.
Hope you enjoy this ???? sounds interesting
It’s a truly excellent book. It sat on my TBR shelf for ages and I wish I’d read it sooner. Because the subject is controversial, Malone finds what could be regarded as ‘obvious’ choices, but the result is a book which is both unbelievably sad and hopeful at the same time. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Ooh very glad to hear this! I need to get started on it soon ????
I loved the description of this book and gave it a go on audible however the narration put me off- but maybe I should put it on want-to-read on Goodreads again!
