Book Review | EVERY LAST LIE by Mary Kubica

June 27, 2017; Park Row Books
New York Times bestselling author of THE GOOD GIRL, Mary Kubica is back with another exhilarating thriller as a widow's pursuit of the truth leads her to the darkest corners of the psyche. 
Grief-stricken and seriously stressed, Clara Solberg is not handling her husband’s death the way she wants to. Too many things are piling up while she is trying to compromise with her current state, along with a four-year-old daughter and a new-born son. A few days later, details emerge and Clara starts to question whether Nick really had an accident or was he actually murdered.

EVERY LAST LIE is another suspenseful novel from Mary Kubica, a slow burn that kept me at the edge of my seat. Whenever I thought I had it all figured out, the clues will pull me in a different direction. With her customary technique, the narration is altered between Clara and Nick, giving me a chance to cross out every mistaken conjecture. The characters are all vividly rendered, they readily hooked this reader and before I knew it, I was totally invested on them.

I love how this book explored marriage and trust in the midst of a tragedy, and how these things ultimately affect how we perceive things. I do recommend this book.

  1. Hello Mommy L! I wasn't quite into Kubica's Don't You Cry. The plot moved a bit slow for me, and both the events and the characters aren't as gripping as I would have liked them to be. I am still on the fence as to whether I should have her on my list, and try her other books. Also Mystery is among my weakest genre. But I did enjoy Gone Girl, and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. And oh, The Alienist wasn't too shabby either. :)
