To Tell You The Truth by Gilly Macmillan

5 Stars from me ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

I didn’t want this book to end. I wanted to keep reading more about the startlingly messed up mind of Lucy Harper and her lead detective Eliza.

To Tell You The Truth has so many clever concepts that it is hard to know where to start! I think overall I particularly enjoyed that Lucy was portrayed as being intelligent, bright, alert, aware and still she fully engaged with Eliza.

So much unknown and untold and yet this story is HUGE, I devoured every page and found the book incredibly hard to put down.

The dynamic between Lucy and Dan appeared perfect but once the cracks started to show you could see that they were deep and boy did they have good reason to be.

I don’t want to spoil the book for anyone else so won’t say anything further about the story. Just to add that this book hit all the right notes for me, it was descriptive, it drew me in, I cared about the characters, it had a multifaceted story and I most definitely recommend it!

Blurb: Bestselling mystery writer Lucy Harper’s talent for invention has given her fame, fortune, and an army of adoring readers. It has also saddled her with dependents, namely her fawning husband Dan.

When Dan suddenly goes missing, his disappearance evokes dark memories that take Lucy back more than thirty years—to the day her brother vanished without a trace. That’s when Lucy began conjuring stories. The police investigation revealed few confirmed details, so she created tales to fill in the gaps, to explain what happened that day her brother disappeared—and young Lucy was the only witness.

Now decades later, with the whole world watching, Lucy’s past and present are colliding, and this bestselling author skilled in telling stories is losing control of her own narrative.

Where is Dan? What happened to Lucy’s brother? And is the brilliant mystery writer—an expert in devising red herrings and hidden clues—revealing all she knows about both disappearances?
