Lies That Bind Us Reviews
Wow ~ this is a very grown up story of the boy who cried wolf too often (except in this case it's a woman) ~ and it is a marvelous read. The book kept me guessing - a lot. I loved the characters - they were believable The story line - holy moly. This is must read for suspense thriller fans.
Thank you NetGalley, Andrew Hart and the publisher for providing me with an ARC of this book
Sorry, but I couldn’t get past the 20% mark. The writing was mediocre and the dialogue had me continuously rolling my eyes. I can deal with some pretty meh plots but I can’t handle cheesy dialogues... I don’t know any adults that actually speak this way.
“You missed the drinkies!”

“Hey stranger! I was just going to... is the bathroom free?”
Girl: “Yes. It’s right there.”
Guy: “Right. Cool. Ok, then. What a great place, huh?”
I never do read a book straight through but rather just add it to bedtime reading for a few weeks until I finish. This book was different, I barely put this one down and finished it in 2 1/2 days. Great story, wonderful imagery. I felt that I was on vacation in Greece with them and I also felt their horror.
From the first page to the last you are trying to figure out who and why.
This well written thriller keeps you guessing until the end. I usually figure it out well before the end but not this time. This Author knows how to grab your attention and make you feel like you are there. Would recommend this for anyone who loves a great thriller.
Mysteriously and deliciously creepy, LIES THAT BIND US will leave you craving and dreading an international vacation at the same time. Filled with fantastic mythology and shady friendships to keep you reading with lights on well into the night!
Have you ever watched any of those horror movies that start out on the most perfect beach, with the most perfect people, having the most perfect time, on their most perfect vacation from their most perfect lives? ... Only to end up cut up into a million i ...more
Well, I gave it a day or so before reviewing and it still isn't much easier. I tortured myself over whether it was a 3 or 4 star book, in the end I rounded down to 3 stars, but it was marginal.
The plot is good and fairly novel. There are twists, but to be honest I could see the outline of the climax and pretty much guessed the culprits from a little over halfway through. Some of the lesser twists were a bit of a surprise, but that predictability (for me at least - maybe I've read too many myster ...more
Really great thriller - creepy, suspenseful and a satisfying ending. I didn't like the protagonist until almost the end of the book and at first I thought I wouldn't like the book, but I got sucked into the story and wanting to know what happened. Glad I kept reading.
The story takes a few interesting turns then the dots begin to connect about 3/4 of the way through. Enjoyable read!
