Someone is Lying by Jenny Blackhurst

4 Stars from me

I have loved reading this book – particularly so during our period of lockdown – as it is just like indulging in the juiciest, most fabulous, gossip-fest with your best friends!

Focusing around Erica Spencer who died a year ago – did she fall, was she murdered? – and set in a posh gated community in Cheshire, this story is sublime distraction from all that is going on in the world right now.

Instead, lose yourself in the drama of the Kaplans and their ‘friends’ in the posh streets of Severn Oaks… In fact, buckle up as you will be hooked within a couple of paragraphs – I know I was!

Someone is Lying is a fun and salacious whodunnit which pokes fun at all of the little stereotypes which exist within most groups of friends. It has affairs, secrets, murder, jealousy, wild parties and misdemeanours and I loved it!

Blurb: One year after Erica Spencer trips and falls down a flight of stairs at a lavish Halloween party, the residents of the exclusive gated community where she lived have comes to terms with her death and moved on with their lives.

Until one day, a post on the school’s website announces there will be a podcast to expose what really happened on the night of the accident. Six suspects are named, with the podcaster promising to reveal the murderer by the end of the series.

Everyone in this community has secrets to keep, and one of them is already a killer…
