Everything Is Lies/Helen Callaghan - Book Review

Everything is Lies cover.
No-one is who you think they are

Sophia's parents lead quiet, unremarkable lives. At least that is what she's always believed.

Everyone has secrets

Until the day she arrives at her childhood home to find a house ringing with silence. Her mother is hanging from a tree. Her father is laying in a pool of his own blood, near to death.

Especially those closest to you

The police are convinced it is an attempted murder-suicide. But Sophia is sure that the woman who brought her up isn't a killer. As her father is too ill to talk it is up to Sophia to clear her mother's name.

And to do this she needs to delve deep into her family's past - a past full of dark secrets she never suspected were there...

What if your parents had been lying to you since the day you were born?


Well from that the description there was no option but for me to request this novel. Definately sounded like a perfect book for me, and I was right! This is certainly going to be in my top 10 books of this genre. It grabbed me from the very first chapter and didn't let go!

Sophia is looking for answers, and boy does she find them. Just maybe not the answers she wanted to find. She is adamant that her mother is not a killer and will do anything to prove that to everyone. 

The book goes from the present with Sophia to her mothers story from before Sophia was born. The mother's story is told from notebooks that Sophia finds.

The title of this book is very fitting. Lots of twists and turns leading to a tense and thrilling finale. I will definitely be reading more of Helen Callaghan's work.

Thank you the publishers and Netgalley for sending an ARC of this novel for an honest review.
