    This is a fun grab your popcorn sort of book that was so fun to read Three women connected by proximity and a whole bunch of liesThe opening chapter starts with a bang—a body found at the bottom of the stairs at 1054 Mockingbird Lane From there the book travels back in time and the story is told in a mostly linear format as we lead up to who the body is at the bottom of the stairs and how it came to be there And let’s just say there are several characters who may have done something to deserve ending up thereThe book reads like contemporary suspense than psychological thriller through most of it but in a good way Don’t go in expecting a straight thriller because I’m not sure that would completely capture this story While the book begins with a hint as to the mystery I’d say this is about the journey that gets you to that mysteryThree women are at the center of the story each connected to the others by the proximity of living in apartments at 1054 Mockingbird Lane There is Riki a private school teacher in her mid twenties who has a dream boyfriend but can’t help but fall in love a bit with her very attractive aspiring actor neighbor Brandon Embry a southern belle beauty and mom of two with one on the way who happens to be married to Brandon and also happens to be keeping her latest pregnancy a secret And finally there is Sylvia a successful marketing professional who suspects her boyfriend may be keeping something from her related to his needy ex girlfriendAs you learn about these three women let’s just say that while they are all compelling in their own way Stacy Wise has truly written uite a character in Sylvia Sylvia is a wild ride and she is not someone to cross She is smart driven and completely unafraid to be a little bit deviousOne thing that was really compelling were the glimpses we got of the backstory to these three women None of them are uite as simple as what meets the eye Even Sylvia whose hardened exterior can make her seem unsympathetic at times really connected with her elderly land lady developing a friendship that was sweet There are lots of small moments like this that humanize the women in different ways Because Sylvia is so strong hers serve to show her softer side For Embry and Riki the opposite is true They seem outwardly sweet and naïve but each has a bit steel to her than meets the eyeI got lost in their stories so I nearly forgot we were heading towards that dead body for a bit Expect lots of secrets lies and revenge along the way and then a slam dunk endingThank you to Lake Union Publishing and Suzy Approved Book Tours for my copy Opinions are my own

    Oh Is that itWhile I loved reading Lie Lie Again the writing is fab I've come away feeling a bit deflated Maybe it's my own fault I was expecting something along the mysterythriller genre but this was most definitely missing the thrill When the book was wrapping up in the last few chapters I kept waiting for the twist the ah moment But alas nothing but an unnecessarily long ending

    Lie Lie Again is the story of three women Sylvia Riki and Embry all living in an apartment complex at 1054 Mockingbird Lane all holding a secret about having a hand on a body at the bottom of the staircase Lie Lie Again is a well written narrative that explores human nature It’s looking at point of views of people thinking someone else has a better life than them wanting and the dreams unfulfilled and secrets untold I thought that the character exploration brilliant with the reader finding some sort of connection with one or all these women I found their characters distinct and different with uniue voices that adds to the mystery Stacy Wise through these women’s stories brilliantly intersects into a great build up of intrigue suspense and a wonderful crescendo I enjoyed this well written compulsive and bingeable read Highly recommend for you to pick this up

    Find this review and others at Carlene InspiredSuburban drama superb writing and so many lies made Lie Lie Again a hit for me Stacy Wise gives readers a glimpse into the lives of three women living in an apartment complex and the desperate decisions they make as the lies pile up Sylvie is desperate for a husband Ricky is struggling both with money and a hopeless crush and finally there's too sweet Embry mother of two and wife to a struggling actor Polite in passing previously the three women band together to fight the sale of their complex never realizing all the tiny secrets they've each been holding onto nor how any of it could lead to a dead bodyThe women of Mockingbird Lane aren't exempt from feelings of jealousy insecurity and hopelessness While each thinks the others' lives are perfect inside the walls of their apartments all is not uite as it seems Sylvie was cutthroat and manipulative her perspective was easily my favorite and really tied the story's strings together Embry and Ricky were classic female characters especially in the LA setting While I loved Sylvie most I do love a good unreliable character I related most with the meeker two Every move Sylvie made unraveled their lives just that much their own small secrets and white lies soon went up in flames As their individual perspectives tied together Lie Lie Again soon becomes the nail biter the blurb promised with a dead body just waiting to be discoveredWith descriptive writing distinctive character voices and a uniue thriller plot line Stacy Wise easily captured my attention with every page turn Lie Lie Again was a really fun read I couldn't guess what would happen next especially with a pathological liar among the group ARC provided

    Solidly readable soapy book This was definitely a fun ride Not a huge amount of depth and meaning but it was entertaining I liked getting to know Sylvia Riki and Embry and the secrets they were all hiding Sylvia was the most intriguing character for me I would definitely not want to get on her bad side There were parts of this book that seemed uite unbelievable but when I just went with the flow I enjoyed it and just let myself be entertained All in all it reminded me of a Lifetime movie in the best way If you're looking for a light book to pass the winter days this is a great choiceI voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book all opinions are my own

    OMG this book was a bundle of fun Let me introduce you to Sylvia a very smart and cunning woman who will do anything to achieve her dreams; Riki a dreamer who is a good girl essentially but her daydreams just may get her into trouble she doesn't need; and Embry the stunning wife of a gorgeous husband who is exhausted by her two beautiful children and a life that doesn't seem to be getting anywhere no matter how hard they try Enter draaaaaama YAYFor me this was pure entertainment One thing was blaringly obvious and I wanted to throttle one of the women WHY CAN'T YOU JUST SEE IT But boy oh boy did I enjoy the lengths she went to tee hee And I could relate to Riki in the fact that I prepare scenarios that are never going to happen in my head ALL the time Anddddd just seeing what Riki went through as a teacher I applaud even the teachers of this world BLESS YOU ALL And damn Embry I can only dream of finding a husband like yoursI don't know that I would really put this in the thriller category It felt like apartment complex drama that just made all my voyeuristic dreams come true That sounds weird but whatever Reading this was like watching the best episode of Desperate Housewives And even though things tied up a bit too neatly at the end I really didn't care Pure unaltered fun Thank you Stacy for this fun fun ride If at first you don't succeed Lie Lie Again

    This book focuses on 3 women living in a complex like like they are neighbor Sylvia Em and Riki They all dealing with life and their own secrets when a dead body ends up rocking their lives It was such a slow paced mystery but still amazing I loved Sylvia's story as she was such a likeable character in her own way Thanks to the publisher for my ARC

    The blurb of the story intrigued me Three women living in the same apartment complex with very different stories Sylvia a professional woman in her mid thirties with a boyfriend that might just be the one Embry married with 2 children and another on the way wife to a struggling actor And Riki teacher with a crush on her neighbours husband Each one has a secret but whose will cause the most destruction
I was really looking forward to reading this It had all the ingredients for a great thriller but somehow it missed the bar It didn’t help that I only really like one of the three main characters It was an easy read so easy that I finished it in 2 days but I felt it was uite slow moving A lot of focus was on building up the characters and their backstories so much so I felt that the final twist wasn’t a surprise 
If you haven’t read a thriller before or maybe just need a lighter one give this a go

    Thank you to Netgalley and Lake Union Publishing for an ARC in exchange for an honest review“Lie Lie Again” follows the three women living at 1054 Mockingbird Lane Embry Riki and Sylvia All carry life changing secrets that they fully intend to keep hidden With a swift turn of events they find themselves with a body at the bottom of the stairs and secrets leaking out of their sleeves To what extent will these women go to keep those secrets buried I reuested this ARC on a whim the cover is beautiful and the concept really intrigued me The entire book in itself is very uniue and uite unlike anything I’ve read before I loved how it followed all three women and allowed the reader to see the story from each of their perspectives it gave the book a lot of depth and also revealed how much work must have gone into writing such an intricate story Stacy Wise is no doubt a very talented author her ability to devote so much time and story to each character while not allowing the story to drag blew me away I will without a doubt be picking up of Stacy Wise’s books simply for her natural talent of storytelling and creating three dimensional fascinating characters I debated uite a while about whether to rate this book 3 or 4 stars but I landed on 3 I preface this by saying mysterythriller is really not a genre I typically lean towards especially ones so focused on mystery With that said I realize my personal preference definitely affects my enjoyment of this book and I definitely know some people who would love this My other problem that coincides with this is that I was under the impression that this would be of a thriller than it was I think the description leans a little bit too heavily on the dead body aspect which was actually not really that big of a plot line until uite late in the story It was an interesting element to the book and kept me wondering throughout the book but I think Sylvia’s character was really what wrapped me into this story and what made it a thriller for me Sylvia was very much my favorite character and was incredibly well written I do wish the book had delved a little bit into her past as her current habits are clearly due to childhood trauma and I wished the story could’ve traced that a little bit However it was the end that really convinced me to give it 3 stars instead of 4 The story felt cut short for all of the depth that was put into nearly every scene in this book the end left me feeling unsatisfied everything was almost too perfect It was like everyone's lives were resolved at exactly the same time and everyone who was in the wrong suddenly realized it synchronously and apologized There were also so many side characters that were introduced and abandoned by the rushed ending so it felt that there were a lot of loose endsMy criticisms however don’t mean I don’t recommend this book I think that it would be perfect for people who like family drama domestic thrillers and a little dose of Amy Dunne I truly hope this book does well when it is released as the time and effort put into it is fully evident from how well written and structured the book is

    Surprisingly delicious writing that kept me wanting even when the plot seemed a bit stagnant in some areas While reading I could feel the build of the plot like the simmer before a boil I connected deeply with characteristics of each character and I felt that they became close friends of mine This book perfectly displays the light and darkness within us all and it was a gripping read The ending surprised me by being a happy ending that I didn’t know I needed but I was also not disappointed by the plot’s climax with the dark tone and build up Overall it was a really fun read and I look forward to work by this author
