Review: The Truth in My Lies by Ivy Smoak

From Amazon bestselling author Ivy Smoak comes a heart-stopping thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end…

I’m not supposed to leave the house. But what my husband doesn’t know won’t kill him. I break his rules every morning on my runs. It’s always been best when I have a routine. So every day I wake up, run, clean the house, wish for a better life, repeat. And every day is exactly the same.

Except for Thursdays. I live and breathe for Thursdays. It’s when he comes. I watch him from a distance. I can’t help myself. But I was never supposed to talk to him.

I know what you’re thinking. But you don’t know my story. You don’t know the kind of monster my husband is. And trust me, you have no idea who I am.

I started The Truth in My Lies and got sucked in from the start. Adeline is housewife whose only excitement comes on her Thursday morning run when she gets to see the one man who holds her interest. It’s been a while since I’ve read Ivy Smoak and I forgot how great her writing is. This book did not go anywhere I thought it would. The Truth in My Lies has so many twists, turns, lies and partial truths that you start to question Adeline and her reality. I don’t want to ruin anything in this book but if you’re looking for a romantic suspense that’s dark, twisted and messes with reality then pick up The Truth in My Lies. It’s unlike anything I’ve read before.

I received a copy of this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Favorite Quotes:

  • God, he smelled better than I had ever imagined. Sweet cologne mixed with salty sweat and something else that could only be described as all man. Dirt and grass and everything that exuded sexiness and…strength. How could he smell like strength? That wasn’t and odor.
  • Don’t be fooled by what you see. It’s the things you don’t that really matter.
  • Getting evidence against my husband was better than getting myself sent to prison. I wouldn’t do well behind bars.
