    45 StarsOne More Lie is a fast paced suspenseful engaging and chilling read From the very first pages I was hooked wanting to know about the tangle of lies that lead to one lie The premise of this story is disturbing and chilling here with the thought and reality of children so young committing crimes I was fascinated by the unhealthy and toxic relationships here between the characters at a young age and the impact it had on them after a crime was committed Amy Lloyd did push that uncomfortable feeling however I never felt that this story was going to go in the direction of anything than just an entertaining thriller The tension and suspense increased with each chapter as we become tangled in the web of deceit and lies and I was turning the pages as fast as I could to find out the truth The truth in end left me completely satisfied with the way it all came togetherI received my copy from the publisher on NetGalleyhttpstwosisterslostinacouleecom

    A fascinating disturbing psychological thriller that had me fully immersed in the mind of an unreliable protagonist crippled by anxiety fear isolation lack of social skills and emotional maturity Asks the pertinent uestion of whether or not you believe child murderers are born pre disposed to kill or are shaped by the environment they grow up in? And also if those who take a life can ever be redeemed? I won't deny that I found some parts tough to read but Amy Lloyd handled difficult subject matter with sensitivity and cautionRecently paroled Charlotte just wants to start over despite the fact that she lives in a halfway house and wears an ankle monitor She has a new name a new job is meeting new people and seeing her psychiatrist on a regular basis As long as Sean doesn't find her everything will be okay When she was 10 years old she along with her 11 year old best friend Sean were convicted of killing a classmate Well so Charlotte's been told – she doesn't remember doing so Yes as long as Sean stays away she has a chance at a new lifeThe start was a little slow – well at least the present storyline was the flashbacks intrigued me right from the get go The flashbacks are somewhat unusual – unordered covering after the murder the lead up to the killing Charlotte I'll stick to using her new name to avoid spoilers and Sean's meeting and friendship and even as far back as six year old Charlotte and her life between six and tenAs I mentioned there's an initial slow burn but there’s a lot at stake in the last half and the tension and suspense definitely escalates And those last few pages left me feeling chilled to the bone – yikes creepy It's a really uick read as well – every time I caught sight of the page count another 10% had whizzed byThis was my first novel by Amy Lloyd and I can't wait to read her back catalogue and any future psychological suspense books she writes I'd like to thank Netgalley Amy Lloyd and Random House UK Cornerstone for the e ARCUS Release Date 28th May 2019UK Release Date 4th April 2019

    One More Lie is the second book published by author Amy Lloyd and having read her first I was extremely curious how the second would be Both of the books are fictional stories based off real life crimes and I was a little iffy on the first but still intrigued but in my opinion this one got even betterOne More Lie tells the story of Charlotte a woman now in her late twenties that has just been released from prison The twist with Charlotte’s story though is she doesn’t actually remember whether she was guilty or not as she was only a young child at the time she and her friend had been arrestedLiving almost twenty years behind bars with most being her formative childhood and teenage years it’s safe to say Charlotte really has no idea how the world works or how to exist in it now Charlotte does have the help of her trusted therapist though and hopes to make a good life for herself nowAmy Lloyd did a wonderful job writing this one through the eyes of her unreliable narrator There’s this dark and creepy vibe from the very beginning that makes one uestion just what happened all those years before We hear of horrible crimes daily and sometimes those are even committed by children so this had this realistic but sinister vibe down perfectly leaving me to rate it at 4 12 starsI received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalleyFor reviews please visit

    A disturbing and unsettling book which got me thinking about nature vs nurture Charlotte is fresh out of prison trying to start a new life but despite having a job a place to live and an electronic tag she soon finds herself making bad decisions which could end up with her back in prison Sean has been out a while but isn't living his best life What happened when Charlotte was 10? Will she remember? Which one of them is the bad guy?This was an uncomfortable read for me as it dealt with two characters who were convicted of murder when they were young children It gave me flashbacks from the Jamie Bulger case and made me feel anxious I was only a little older than they were and my sister the same age when that happened and it has haunted me ever since I have often asked myself are children who kill other children born evil or does their life experience shape them? Should children convicted of murder be given a second chance?The story is told from both Sean and Charlotte's POV and flashes back and forth in time Both characters were both extremely unlikeable but they definitely both left an impression on me Sean had a sad upbringing and people expected him to end up in prison Since he's been released he has not been living a life free from crime Charlotte who tells of the story than Sean seemed frozen in time from when she was arrested Childlike lonely and anxious she had a huge lack of social skills and had also blocked out any memory of the crime Even though Charlotte had a very sad childhood I found it hard to empathise with her She made bad decision after bad decision as both a child and an adult and it was very frustrating She was also a little odd other children didn't like her when she was young and I think that's very tellingParts of the book were uite slow and it wasn't really that shocking or twisty for a psychological thriller but it did build up tension well and I felt fearful as I could sense it wasn't going to end well I could see where the plot was going and it made me feel uite stressed outTo sum up this book dealt with an uncomfortable topic and I cant really say that I enjoyed reading it But it was thought provoking and the end was uite chilling

    One More Lie by Amy Lloyd had me staying up way past my bedtime reading I was sucked into the story from the very beginning and curious to see how it was going to play out I read and really enjoyed Amy's first book so I was keen to get hold of this one too The subject isn't an easy one to read about but it was handled really well by the author With a main character who is suffering memory loss it is hard to know what the truth isCharlotte is finally free from prison As a child she was convicted of murder along with her best friend Sean Now she has a new name and a fresh start to life Complete with ankle monitor she really doesn't know what to do with herself apart from go to therapy and her therapist is her only friend But this time Sean is also out and he has found her Will she be able to stay focused and on the right path or will he drag her back down with himCharlotte has no memory of the night in uestion She lost her parents at a very young age and had a tough start to life This is her chance to start again but she doesn't know how to She is very childlike for an adult and does not know if she is guilty or not Makes for a very interesting readThanks to Random House UK Cornerstone Century and NetGalley for my advanced copy of this book to read All opinions are my own and are in no way biased

    I really liked this book I liked how it went from the present to the past which included both Charlotte and Sean’s story It was really interesting as I’ve never read a book about two kids charged with murder All the characters were great and the book was well written I really enjoyed it and definitely recommend it

    I loved Amy Lloyd’s The Innocent Wife so much I couldn’t wait to dive into this next book although with caution not wanting to be disappointed like I’ve been so many times before I’m referring to you Caroline Kepnes And to be honest I was pleasantly surprised Amy managed to capture my interest with this story just as strongly as she did it with the plot of her first book As disturbing or shocking as it was it let me wonder from the beginning to end and that alone deserves all my stars
