Have you ever played two truths and a lie? Emma has. Her first summer away from home, she learned how to play the game. And she learned how to lie. Then three of her new friends went into the woods and never returned . . . Now, years later, Emma has been asked to go back to the newly re-opened Camp Nightingale. She thinks she's laying old ghosts to rest but really she's returning to the scene of a crime. Because Emma's innocence might be the biggest lie of all...

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.
