Our Little Lies by Sue Watson

Well Sue Watson fans, are  you wondering if she can pull off a thriller genre? Wonder no more, the answer is yes! She was able to spin us a twisted tale worthy of the title psychological thriller.

Marianne Wilson has the world at her fingertips. Living a posh lifestyle with her cardio thoracic surgeon husband Simon and their children.

Marianne's sole job in life is to be a homemaker, the "perfect wife" to Simon aka Dr. Wilson. Of course Simon deserves dinner on the table waiting for him every night, an immaculate home scrubbed to perfection, an attentive wife and obedient children. I mean he deserves it, right? He demands it to be so. Appearance is everything for the doctor and his wife.

I must say this title was extremely fitting for this dysfunctional family dynamics. I was quickly drawn into this story as it was completely believable. Sadly we never know what goes on behind closed doors. I found myself wondering if Simon was really the controlling violent husband portrayed by Marianne. Or perhaps is she riddled with psychiatric disorders and heavy amount of prescription drugs as Simon suggests? Who is telling the truth?

Sue Watson brought us an exciting story of lies, deceit, death and family dysfunction. I often found myself questioning if Marianne was a reliable narrator. It made for an interesting story that kept me guessing all the way until the end!

Thank you so much to Sue Watson, Bookouture and NetGalley for this ARC.
