Which is more dangerous, a secret or a lie?
Poppy has a secret.
It was a whirlwind romance. And when Drew, caught up in the moment, suggests that he and Poppy don’t tell each other anything about their past lives, that they live only for the here and now, for the future they are building together, Poppy jumps at the chance for a fresh start.
But it doesn’t take long for Poppy to see that this is a two-way deal. Drew is hiding something from her. And Poppy suddenly has no idea who the man she has married really is, what he is hiding from her or what he might be capable of.
Drew says he has nothing to hide. Drew is lying.
Truth Hurts is available in ebook and paperback now. You can purchase your copy of both using the link below.
I was a huge fan of this author’s debut novel so I was very excited to read more from her. I thought Truth Hurts was a fantastic page turner that was hugely addictive.
The author cleverly weaves an intriguing picture of Poppy and Drew’s relationship, giving them an intimate look into its ins and outs which was great to read about. Slowly the reader pieces together their story which on the outside seems perfect but actually has a lot of cracks in it. I found it fascinating to dig below the surface and learn more about the characters and their relationship.
This was a fast paced book which I couldn’t put down. I often found myself trying to hide away from the children so I could fit in a few more pages and constantly thinking about it when I wasn’t able to read it. I loved the unraveling of all the secrets and lies, whilst all the twists kept me guessing how everything would turn out.
This would make a holiday read as it’s very readable with a great flow to it which would be perfect to enjoy in the sun by a pool
Huge thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Transworld for my copy of this book which I will be recommending to everyone!
