The Lying ClubThe Lying Club by Annie Ward
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a thriller that is very much a slow burn. The book begins with two bodies being found. However, it isn't revealed who these two bodies are. The rest of the novel is then slowly revealing who these bodies are and how others might be connected. The twisty connections are explored through three women and one man who are connected via an elite private school. There's Natalie who is an administrative assistant at the school, Brooke and Asha who have daughters on the soccer team and are each navigating their own issues, and Nick who is the assistant athletic director. As you can imagine, there are secrets and lies and all the things that make this thriller great. Again, this one is really about the build, so the last 10% moves quick as the truth comes at you as the reader fast. For me personally, I wish the big action would have come sooner, AND I did dig the way the ending was written with a solid twisty reveal. Thanks to NetGalley for the early look at this March 2022 release.
