Traveling Sisters Book Reviews

Traveling together through books. Join us on our adventures through the books we read

Yahoo!! Hot Diggity Dang!!! John Marrs creates another page-turner and I flew through What Lies Between Us so fast it’s surprising that my Kobo didn’t shut down to cool off.

John Marrs is joining us in the Behind the Pages group to answer our spoiler-free questions about What Lies Between Us, his books and his writing process. You can find the thread to the Q&A here

My Review

What Lies Between Us is an exciting original, entertaining read with one fascinatingly dark warped and twisted relationship here, between Mother and Daughter Maggie and Nina. John Marrs creates an intriguing and terrifying situation here for Maggie, who is chained and hidden in the house she shared with Nina. It’s not only the lies and secrets between them that are intriguing; it’s also the truths they are hiding.

Through Maggie and Nina’s POV, each tells their side of the story in two timelines creating suspense and tension here that kept me turning the pages. With each side of the story, something new is revealed and I went back and forth, questioning the cruel one is.

Things get darker as the story goes and I was on the edge of seat anticipating how this one was going to wrap up, but really I had no idea. All I knew was it was going to be good and it was. The story wrapped up brilliantly and I loved everything about this one! I highly recommend it!

I received a copy from John Marrs on NetGalley
