“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!” (Sir Walter Scott, 1809).
The Lies We Tell by Brittany Butler is my first encounter with this author. I will say that I will read other books by her. She has an imagination that allows her to go between different time frames. Her characters are fully developed, and the story is told by the POV of Natalie. There will be some time jumps from Natalie’s past and her present. Sometimes it took me by surprise, and I had to reread to make sure I knew where I was in the story. One thing I thought was an interesting character trait of Natalie is that she is a self-proclaimed liar. I am not sure that I could believe in anything she ever said. This story takes you on a roller coaster ride and I never knew if it was for what was really going on or if it was made of lie from Natalie.This is a quick read novel and I recommend it for an interesting “get your mind off of things” read. I cannot wait to see other books from Brittany Butler.
