Today is my stop on the Dead Girls Can’t Lie blog tour! I’m here to tell you all what I really thought about the book…
First though, here’s more information on it!
About the Book
Best friends tell each other the truth – don’t they?
When North Stone’s best friend Kelly Orton is found hanging lifeless in a tree, North knows for certain it wasn’t suicide. Kelly had everything to live for – a loving boyfriend, a happy life, and most importantly of all, Kelly would never leave North all by herself.
The girls have been friends since childhood, devoted to each other, soul sisters, or at least that’s what North has always believed. But did Kelly feel the same way, or was she keeping secrets from her ‘best friend’ – deadly secrets…
When the police refuse to take North’s suspicions seriously, she sets out to investigate for herself. But her search soon takes her to a glamorous world with a seedy underbelly, and before long North is out of her depth and getting ever closer to danger. Determined to find the truth, she soon wishes that dead girls could lie, because the truth is too painful to believe…
I’m going to be honest with you, I have not yet finished this book. But not because I do not wish to but because life has a habit of getting in the way of my treasured reading time. So this review will be short and I’ll write a full one later on!
The first thing you should know about this book is that it is addictive. I was almost late leaving the house because I simply could not put the book down. The reason for this is that Carys Jones has created a very interesting and compelling protagonist who pulls you along the story with ease. She opens up the curiosity of your mind until you are as obssessed about knowing what happened as she is.
Honestly – I need to know how this book ends.
Moreover, Carys Jones has created a very complex protagonist who is very human. She has flaws like the rest of us and has made her share of mistakes. But you can also feel her grief rising off the page. It makes you want to help her as much as you can without knowing how.
But she is also an unreliable narrator which makes this book even more of an intense read. What is truth and what is lies?
Carys Jones has created a very addictive, compelling and intriguing thriller that will capture your mind and keep you wanting more – which is all we want from books. I cannot wait to see where the story leads me.
