 I started to get into a reading slump again. Last month I only read one book which was Wrong Place Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister. It took me ages to read 5o pages and then I ended up reading the rest of the book in 2 days, the same thing happened with this one but the ending of this book was just ...

I took last month's book with me to my parent's house, not expecting to finish it in 2 days so when I did I had to borrow a book from my mum,

The Woman Who Lied..

She finally has her dream life. But someone knows the truth . . .

Emilia Ward lives quietly in suburban London with her husband and two children.
Just an ordinary wife and mother. But also a bestselling crime writer.
When she starts writing her tenth Detective Miranda Moody novel, however, life takes a frightening turn: an incident straight out of one of her novels occurs in real life.
Just an unsettling coincidence, she thinks. Until it happens again.
Then someone she knows dies exactly like a victim in the book she's still writing . . .

Why is someone doing this?

How do they know what she is writing?

And how long before Emilia and her family are next?

The blurb sounded really good and I had high hopes for a big plot twist. I have read some really good thrillers recently and haven't been dissapointed yet so I wasn't expecting it.

This book was ok, that is it. It took almost 200 pages of reading it to feel some sort of excitement and action. Some moments I was thinking, would she say that or would he really do that and then it ended.

The storyline didn't really grip me and the end was a little disappointing. I read the last age and turned the page for the next to read, that is the kind of ending it was.

I give it a 3/5, but some that have read it in my bookworm circle have enjoyed it so I will let you make your mind up :)
