Book Review: Lies Lies Lies

20 May 2021|

Title: Lies Lies Lies

Author: Adele Parks

Genre: Domestic Thriller

Main Characters:

  • Daisy – wife
  • Simon – husband
  • Millie – daughter


Daisy and Simon’s marriage is great, isn’t it? After years together, the arrival of longed-for daughter Millie sealed everything in place. A happy little family of three. And so what if Simon drinks a bit too much sometimes – Daisy’s used to it, she knows he’s letting off steam. Until one night at a party things spiral horribly out of control. And that happy little family of three will never be the same again.


It took me a while to finish this one – it seemed long and a little complicated in how the story is told. But then it captivates you and you just have to keep going. I cried quite a bit – the hardships and wrong doings, the bad decisions and their devastating consequences. It was all quite consuming… Adele Parks is also a favourite of mine, I’ve really enjoyed all her books that I have read.

Have you read it? What did you think?

Any other good book recommendations whilst we self-isolate and enjoy more time in a good book?
