The Last Time I Lied
by Riley Sager

Brenda’s revew

Creepy good, Creepy spooky, Creepy wow!

The Last Time I Lied had all the elements to make this a spooky, creepy good read. I loved the camp setting, eerie lake, game of truth and lies and the mystery of three girls that go missing in the night.

I loved the atmosphere of the camp setting and Riley Sager does a great job setting the feel with the descriptive writing making the camp setting come alive in my head. At times it felt like a movie playing out in my mind.

Riley Sager does a good job layering those secrets and lies and creating those twists and turns at just the right time. He took me down a path a twisty path, leaving those clues along the way, In the end, the story skillfully comes together leaving me wanting to sure my excitement over this one with the Traveling Sisters in this group read. Every time someone finished the excitement started all over it again. Almost like a party! We highly recommend.

Norma’s review

THE LAST TIME I LIED by RILEY SAGER was an absolutely fantastic, compulsive, thrilling, and tension-filled psychological thriller that had me totally engaged and racing through those pages as fast as I could to see how this story was going to end. I was totally blown away with that absolutely shocking and surprise ending! I did another whoop at books end.

RILEY SAGER delivers an extremely detailed, twisty, atmospheric and well-written story here. I absolutely love his writing style and the way that he set the mood was pretty much perfect for a creepy and thrilling reading experience for me. I had that uneasy and apprehensive feeling throughout most of this novel which I am always seeking from my thrillers. This one definitely delivered!

This novel was so gripping and intriguing and in my opinion, had the perfect setting. The creepy woods, cabin, and the eerie lake with the camp setting were so good. The camp setting had me reminiscing about my summer camp memories when I was younger. I couldn’t help thinking Nancy Drew or The Hardy Boys while I was reading this one too. Also, another fun aspect of this novel was the game “two truths and a lie” that the girls played at Camp Nightingale in their cabin. I’m not going to lie – I absolutely loved this book! Would highly recommend!

Thank you so much from both of us to Edelweiss, Dutton Publishing, and Riley Sager for the opportunity to read and review an advanced copy of this book.
