About the book:

In the vein of Allison Brennan, Michelle Adams’s Between the Lies is an addictive psychological thriller with twists that keep the reader guessing until the last page, in which a woman who’s lost her memory is back home with a family she doesn’t know—who are keeping secrets of their own. 

The truth is hiding between the lies.


What would you do if you woke up and didn’t know who you were?

Chloe Daniels regains consciousness in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
She doesn’t recognise the strangers who call themselves family. She can’t even remember her own name.

What if your past remained a mystery?

As she slowly recovers, her parents and sister begin to share details of her life.
The successful career. The seaside home. The near-fatal car crash.
But Chloe senses they’re keeping dark secrets—and her determination to uncover the truth will have devastating consequences.

What if the people you should be able to trust are lying to you?


Between the Lies by Michelle Adams is a psychological thriller in which the main character has lost all of her memory keeping her guessing just as much as the readers do. After a severe brain injury Chloe awakens not only not knowing those around her but even her own name eludes her.

As she’s recovering Chloe’s parents have brought her home with them to take care of  her. However Chloe only has more and more questions with each day going by when her parents refuse to give her much information on who she had been. As Chloe begins tod ig into herself she finds it seems no one is  being truthful.

One thing I will say right away is Michelle Adams definitely is a  good  writer  and I did  find myself enjoying this one for the most part.  For me though with a story like this i always feel things slow down in the middle of the story when we begin to get lie after lie. What is the  old saying….fool me once… so as much as I wanted answers to what was going on I got a repetitive feel while waiting for the answers.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
