The truth can be deadly....
The dazzling new suspense novel from the author of Remember Me This Way. Twisty, tense, impossible to turn off psychological suspense for fans of I Let You Go and The Widow.
It starts with a lie. The kind we've all told - to a former acquaintance we can't quite place but still, for some reason, feel the need to impress. The story of our life, embellished for the benefit of the happily married lawyer with the kids and the lovely home.
And the next thing you know, you're having dinner at their house and accepting an invitation to join them on holiday - swept up in their perfect life, the kind you always dreamed of....
Which turns out to be less than perfect. But by the time you're trapped and sweating in the relentless Greek sun, burning to escape the tension all around you - by the time you start to realise that however painful the truth might be, it's the lies that cause the real damage - well, by then it could just be too late.

When I thought the description sounded promising, I checked the reviews - there were none!
Surprising as there were many ratings - indeed averaging 4+stArs.
I took a chance and do not regret the credit. Increasingly uncomfortable atmosphere and credible narration.
As soon as I started this, I was hooked. Narrator perfect in role. Dark story, impending doom feeling from start to finish, redemption too late etc. would recommend to anyone.
Lie with me, has all the components of 'hook and twist' the story flows and paints such a graphic picture of its characters, surroundings and malice throughout. Excellently narrated!
Lie with me is a superbly crafted story, beautifully narrated. It made me do something u have never done before.. As soon as I finished it I started it all over again and listened to it right through. Definitely read this book!
Since I discovered Audible I have become addicted. I like my fiction with a twist. I'm a fan of soft sci-fi and literary fantasy.
I enjoyed this story. It was dark and featured a truly reprehensible protagonist. The story was interesting even without the big reveal. The characters were well-drawn and compelling.
Paul Morris - deliciously hateful.
Paul being caught out!
Not really, but I was keen to get back to it.
The ending was a little underwhelming, I think it could have featured more drama, one final twist, but the story was engrossing enough to make up for it.
I understand that the author was going for a slow building sense of dread, but I found that there wasn't enough to pull me along throughout the story. It took so long for anything to specifically happen, and I found I didn't really care when it did. I did notice a sense of dread building up every time I had to try and finish this book (but I don't think that's what Sabine was going for!)
Yes, I think the basis was there, it just needed a bit more of a spark.
The narrator did a good job in general, but I did find his female voices slightly grating.
Not really sure what all the 5 star reviews are about? They're definitely seeing something I don't.
