About the Book

From the USA Today bestselling author comes a gripping thriller about a divorce attorney who’s about to discover her own marriage is based on lies when she’s arrested for murder.

Attorney Olivia Sinclair is shocked when she receives an anonymous video showing her husband Richard sleeping with someone else. After years of handling other people’s divorces, she thought she could recognise a marriage in trouble.

She angrily throws Richard out of the home they share. But days later she’s arrested—for the murder of his mistress.

Olivia knows she’s innocent but, with all the evidence pointing at her and an obvious motive, she must find the real killer to clear her name.

She may be used to dealing with messy divorces, but this one will be her most difficult case yet. Olivia’s husband has already betrayed her—but would he set her up for murder?

A gripping and unputdownable thriller for fans of Gillian McAllister, Alafair Burke and A Killer’s Wife.

Review

What a perfect book to ring in the new year with! I had taken a slight book break (AKA I haven’t had a chance to binge lately) in case you cant tell and I finally got a chance to sit down and just read with this one and I am so happy that this was the first book I am logging in a review for this year. Because it was intense and crazy and wild and amazing!

There was just so much to like about this book, but what perhaps was the best part was that it is just a solid and well thought out plot. While I almost always guess the “whodunit” at the beginning of the book (can I blame my addiction to Sherlock Holmes as a child for this?), I still really enjoy books like this. And The Betrayal is definitely one of my new favorites in this genre!

This is a perfect psychological thriller for many types of readers and people. It has a little something for everyone and quite honestly it’ll just hook you from the moment you pick it up. So, go give this one a try (*nudge, nudge*)!

About the Book

Publication Date: March 4, 2020

From the USA Today bestselling author of THE SILENT WOMAN comes a new Cat Carlisle mystery!

In a time of war, nowhere is safe…

While World War Two rages, Cat Carlisle runs a women’s refuge to protect beaten wives. But when one of the women is found dead in the woods behind the house, Cat’s world shatters.

Was the killer a violent husband seeking revenge? A secret lover? Or is something more dangerous at play? Because Cat and her fiancé Thomas have a secret: they’re hiding a precious golden chalice, keeping it locked safely away from the plundering Nazis until the war is over. But someone wants that treasure, and no one will be safe until they get it…

Review

You guys, I’ve been so excited to read this book! I mean, just read that synopsis! Amazing! AND what’s even more amazing is (well, not really, I expected to say this but I’m feeling *melodramatic*) that I absolutely loved this book! I mean, it kind of hits all of the buckets for my favorite things in books so… Yeah, it’s just realllyyyy good!

Honestly though, I think the best part of this story is just how many different subplots are seamlessly interwoven into the main plot. It takes skill to pull this off so successfully! I mean there was the mystery aspect (and I’m a sucker for a good mystery book), to societal issues aspect, and then just all of the character development! Yet even amongst all of these seemingly difficult aspects the book is still a soothing read. I keep talking about “soothing” books lately because those are the ones that are holding my interest in these trying times. I want a book that feels like an escape where I can just relax into the story, and House of Lies was just perfect for that!

Now, I want to point out that I read this book as a standalone. Yes, I know, I’ve been doing this a lot! But, I really like all of these series that I have been coming across lately that I can read the latter books as standalones (and then become obsessed and go back and read the rest). Let me just add in my new favorite phrase again, it takes skill to write a series where each of the books can be read as a standalone. You have to balance the character development and the plot just right to make it work and Thomas is most definitely successful at that!
