White Lies by Lucy Dawson

Firstly, let me apologise for my lack of reviews over the past few days. Things have been crazy busy at work and, with two staff down, I have been doing their jobs as well as my own. Things might be a bit erratic over the coming week as well as I struggle to catch up, presuming we are back to full strength next week. Anyway on to the book . . .

EXCERPT: I glanced at the crumpled, empty bed and shuddered at what I’d done there with him in the night – things that I let happen. That I made happen. I put my hands up to my thudding head, threaded my fingers into my hair and closed my eyes.

Things that I now will never be able to undo.

ABOUT THIS BOOK: When you have everything, you have everything to lose…

Alexandra Inglis is a respected family doctor, trusted by her patients to keep their most intimate secrets. And if sometimes the boundaries between duty and desire blur… well, she’s only human.

But when Alex oversteps a line with Jonathan, one of her patients, she knows she’s gone too far. Jonathan is obsessive, and to get what he wants he will tear Alex’s world apart – threatening not only her career but her marriage and family too.

Soon Alex finds she’s capable of doing almost anything to keep hold of her perfect life, as it begins to spin dangerously out of her control…

MY THOUGHTS: What a wild ride! Who to believe? Who is the liar? Alex? Jonathan? Or are they both lying? What is it they say? There’s his story, there’s her story, and then there’s the truth…

White Lies is told from multiple points of view, mainly from Alex and Jonathan’s perspective, but we also hear from Alex’s husband, her boss, Jonathan’s girlfriend, his parents. . . and that would be the reason I deducted 1/2 star from this otherwise brilliant read, there were just too many points of view. Not all of them contributed anything to the story.

I just didn’t want to put this down. I didn’t want to go to work. I just wanted to be left in peace to read this brilliantly addictive book. I loved Dawson’s The Daughter, and White Lies is every bit as good. I had knots in my stomach and a stranglehold on my Kindle as I read. Dawson knows just how to hook a reader and wind him in. 4.5 very bright stars.
