Listen for the Lie: A Novel

We rated this book:


Five years ago, Lucy was found wandering with her best friend’s blood covering her dress. She can’t remember anything about that night, but everyone thinks she murdered Savvy. Lucy moved away and tried to start over in LA. Her grandmother convinces her to return because Ben Owens is investigating the murder for his true crime podcast, Listen for the Lie. As new information comes to light, Lucy begins to think that Ben might just be able to solve it and she isn’t entirely sure if she’s going to like the truth.

I absolutely loved this book. I did not want to put it down even though life often dictated I needed to. There were so many twists and turns. I honestly did not see that ending coming. I really enjoyed Lucy’s character, but I’m a sucker for sarcasm. Even being an accused murderer, I thought she would definitely be worth being friends with. I also would love to be friends with her grandma. I loved the back and forth between Lucy’s point of view and the podcast as everything comes to light. The author did a great job of leaving you hanging after each episode. I highly recommend this page-turner.
