The Lies We Tell by Jane Corry

5 Stars from me ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Oh my Jane Corry, you have shredded my heart and stolen my Sunday!

Wow, yet another belter from this talented author. I know without a shadow of a doubt that I would do exactly the same and my heart aches for poor Freddie and poor Sarah.

I picked this book up on Sunday morning with the intention of reading 2 or 3 chapters as I had ‘a lot to do’ but I just couldn’t put it down and sat and I read and I read and I read.

The Lies We Tell is a fabulous ‘what would you do’ and much like in previous books it touches on homelessness, prison and the coast – I love these little themes repeating.

This book is the perfect solution to a lockdown Sunday and I lived and loved every page.


Sarah always thought of herself and her husband, Tom, as good people. But that was before their son Freddy came home saying he’d done something terrible. Begging them not to tell the police.

Soon Sarah and Tom must find out just how far they are willing to push themselves, and their marriage, to protect their only child…

As the lies build up and Sarah is presented with the perfect opportunity to get Freddy off the hook, she is faced with a terrifying decision…

Save her son… or save herself?
