Nature heals, Emma. I firmly believe that.
The Last Time I Lied is absolutely a delight to read. Sager, once again, hits it out of the park with this book. I’m going to have to pay very close attention to this author; he might be becoming one of my favorites.
This book was set up a bit like Final Girls, where it shifted back and forth between what happened years ago, and what is happening in the present. I really liked this book because it had layers and layers of mystery. Just when you thought you had part of it figured out, it turned and took a completely different direction. Emma is a bit of an “unreliable narrator”–which really makes the book that much better.
At the end of the book, I closed it and literally said, “Woah!” I honestly didn’t see the ending coming at all. I was really trying to guess the entire time; my detective hat was definitely on, but I wasn’t even close! I absolutely love that. It all made so much sense at the end. I want to re-read it and see if I could have figured it out before the ending.
This book was great and I highly recommend it to all types of readers. It is the perfect mystery thriller read–it had some death and darker themes in it, but it is so much lighter than Sharp Objects, but will still stick with me for a while (and not completely haunt me).
Sorry for the smudge…I got too excited! Ha!
