The Lies We Told by Camilla Way Book Spotlight! @CamillaLWay

Beth has always known there was something strange about her daughter, Hannah. The lack of emotion, the disturbing behavior, including the apparent delight in hurting others; sometimes Beth is scared of Hannah and what she could be capable of doing.
Luke comes from the perfect family, with the perfect parents. But one day, he disappears without a trace, and his girlfriend, Clara, is desperate to discover what has happened to him. As Clara digs into the past, she realizes that no family is truly perfect, and uncovers a link between Luke's long-lost sister and a strange girl named Hannah. Now Luke’s life is in danger because of the lies once told and the secrets once kept.

The highly acclaimed author of Watching Edie returns with a new novel of dark psychological suspense that explores how those closest to us have the most to hide...
When Clara's boyfriend, Luke, disappears, everyone believes that he's left her, but Clara thinks she knows the truth. Recent evidence suggests that Luke had a stalker, and Clara worries that he's been kidnapped. Then Luke's older sister, Emma, who vanished twenty years ago, suddenly reappears.

Emma wants to help Clara with her search for Luke, but she refuses to talk about what happened--even though it nearly destroyed her family when she vanished. And the deeper Clara digs into Luke's mysterious disappearance, the more convinced she is that the two incidents are connected.

Already drawing rave reviews in the UK where it’s been drawing comparisons to We Need to Talk about Kevin, THE LIES WE TOLD has been called “deftly plotted” (Emerald Street), “compelling” (Prima), a “top class psychological thriller” (The Sunday Mirror), and been called readers’ “insomnia buddy” (Stylist).

Advance Praise for THE LIES WE TOLD
“Tense, unsettling, and keeps you guessing till the very end. We Need to Talk About Kevin meets Other People's Children.”—Cara Hunter, author of Close to Home

Praise for Camilla Way’s WATCHING EDIE
“Way expertly explores the dark side of friendship in her psychological suspense debut....The shocking revelation about what happened to change these two women's lives casts a surprising light on each character's motives.”—Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

“Way’s seamlessly crafted tale of betrayal and obsession alternates between Edie’s viewpoint in the present and Heather’s in the past, culminating in a psychological thriller that is impossible to set down.”—Booklist

“A novel that excels in portraying the torment of youth, the reverberations of the past and the darkness of the heart, WATCHING EDIE transcends the boundaries of the standard stalker story into a tale of misguided love, unthinking betrayal and random cruelty.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“[A] book that will garner comparisons to Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, except this time, women are facing off against each other instead of an evil man...one thriller to keep you hooked.”

“Odds are you'll need to read this one in a single sitting. With comparisons to movies like Single White Female, Camilla Way's story of what happens when high school friends, Edie and Heather, encounter one another in their thirties is sure to make you look twice at the people you call your pals.”—Bustle.com
