Pointless! I stuck with this book as it was recommended by Richard & Judy's Spring Book Club 2020, having read 4 others from the collection I had high hopes. This one failed in comparison. A real shame!
The book falls flat about a quarter of the way in and I couldn't make up my mind whether to stick or let go, letting go would have been the best thing to do.

Whoever said being a Mother, lied.

The complexity of this page-turner will have you wondering about your own relationships with your Mother and how this has affected the way you Mother your own children.
As you progress through the book you begin to understand the issues and problems that like so many other 'normal' families lie just beneath the surface.
It's a relief to know that you're not the only parent that thought they'd got it all wrong, it can be such a minefield. What works well with one child infuriates the other.
Sit back and relax, enjoy every page, it's better than seeing a counsellor.

Definitely one to add to your must read ion 2020 list, great story line that grabs your imagination from page 1 and keeps you guessing until the end.

I just kept hoping..

Having read the previous reviews I'd hoped this book would eventually kick in but unfortunately, it just didn't. Save yourself the agony and read something else, I wish I had.

Now I'm a self-confessed fan of Adele Parks so seeing her on Sara Cox's Sunday morning breakfast show talking about Lies, Lies, Lies immediately made me click onto Audible and download what I can only describe as a 'trip down the road with two old friends'.
Daisy & Simon could be your next-door neighbours, on the outside you see nothing but a functioning friendly family yet Daisy is living a nightmare if you've ever had an alcoholic in your life then listening to the pain and abuse Daisy receives on a daily basis will strike a chord.
Harsh, brutal, intriguing, enthralling and surely 2019 Best Book of the Year.

Like ploughing through treacle backwards.
Too many characters mixed with an uninspiring plot, just nonsense!

Blink and you’re on chapter 16, blink again and somehow you realise chapter 71 has just ended!
Peter James takes you on the road of another crime that is prevalent in this day and age. I enjoyed speeding through the Brighton suburbs streets with Norman, Glenn and the notorious Tooth. Fabulous read. Roll on book 16.

Now considering they are all chihuahuas, this is a problem!
Diney Costeloe weaves a families lifetime story through the ups and downs of tragedy, heartache, joy and pain. Each character is brought to life from the rogues to the innocents. Absolutely captivating from the beginning to the end. I'm not sure how I'll cope without the Stevens family!
Anne Dover is probably the best narrator in the world.

Great read
