Here We LieHere We Lie by Paula Treick DeBoard

Norma’s rating & review: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars rounded up!

Here We Lie by Paula Treick DeBoard is an absolutely riveting, powerful, thrilling, and thought-provoking domestic suspense novel about friendship, jealousy, secrets, lies and betrayal.  I was totally engaged from start to finish and found myself mesmerized with how well this story was told and with the way it unfolded! I was extremely impressed!

Paula Treick DeBoard delivers an impressive and well-written story here that takes you on an emotional journey of the friendship between two best friends, Megan and Lauren. The story is told in an alternating dual point of view between Megan and Lauren and the timelines shift back and forth with the story opening up in 2016 and then transitions back and forth between the late 90’s, early 2000’s and then back to the present in 2016. I really enjoyed getting to know and understanding the friendship between Megan and Lauren with the way that this story was presented.  Sometimes I find that a dual timeshifting POV is distracting or I like one time period better than another but it definitely was not the case with this book.  I thought it flowed effortlessly and was easy to follow along with the storyline and all the characters involved.

The characters are well-developed, flawed, and realistic to a point where I was totally connected to the characters and to this story.  This was my first book by Paula Treick DeBoard and I will definitely be checking out her previous and upcoming books!  Highly recommend!
