Having read Final Girls I couldn’t wait to start The Last Time I Lied. I had this on my shelf for a long time and when I got around to reading it I was not disappointed.
2 truths and a lie… 1. This book is fast paced 2. The characters all feel like suspects 3. I could not put this book down once I started.
Ok I admit it, those were all truths. I couldn’t lie as I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Riley knows all the ingredients to write the perfect mystery. I felt like I was right there with Emma and I felt just as confused, hurt, scared and misled as her. I love how we are made to doubt so much in this book and also loved how I didn’t work it out! Especially that last chapter. Riley, that was the perfect cherry on the top of this cake!
I found this read much like a YA/New adult thriller, there was minimal sexual conduct, the language was mild and it was not offensive at all. I would allow my older daughters to read this (Late teens). But for those who do enjoy a more mature book, I feel they also would benefit and enjoy reading The Last Time I Lied.
Highly recommended, I cannot wait to see what Riley releases next. I was gifted this book via NetGalley, but I will be purchasing a hard copy just like I did Final Girls for my own personal book shelf. 4 stars, a very GOODread.
