Book Description

 The text message is just three words: I need you.

Isa drops everything, takes her baby daughter and heads straight to Salten. She spent the most significant days of her life at boarding school on the marshes there, days which still cast their shadow over her now.

Something terrible has been found on the beach. Something which will force Isa to confront her past, together with the three best friends she hasn't seen for years, but has never forgotten. Theirs is no cosy reunion: Salten isn't a safe place for them, after what they did.

At school the girls used to play the Lying Game. They competed to convince people of the most outrageous stories. But for some, did the boundary between fact and fantasy become too blurred?

And how much can you really trust your friends?

My Review

 The Lying Game is the third book by one of my new favorite authors, Ruth Ware. Once again Ware hits the ball out of the park with her latest, The Lying Game.

Friendships. Isa, Fatima, Kate, and Thea are school friends with a secret. A secret that still ties them together even though they don't see each other much now that they are adults. While at boarding school, they all participated in a game...The Lying Game. A game that kept them apart from the other girls and a game that held them all together..for better or worse.

Great read. Once again, I cannot wait for Ware's next book.

Highly recommend The Lying Game.
