This has been such an amazing Blog Tour for Ronnie so far, and the support surrounding this debut from all her followers is astounding. She has received some pretty top reviews that far outshine those that witter on that this tale was “too complex” for them, and I have to say that I am on “Team Ronnie” when it comes to Lies Between Us.
‘Will they ever learn the truth?
Three people, leading very different lives, are about to be brought together – with devastating consequences…
John has a perfect life, until the day his daughter goes missing.
Maisie cares for her patients, but hides her own traumatic past.
Miller should be an innocent child, but is obsessed with something he can’t have.
They all have something in common, though none of them know it – and the truth won’t stay hidden for long…’
John, and his wife Jules, have it all, until one day in 2015 their daughter, Bonnie, is taken and their world falls apart. The investigation is at a standstill and the police don’t know where to look, but it is clear that this family is being targeted by someone rather sinister.
Maisie is a dedicated ICU Nurse, and her current patient Tim was was left for dead on the street. Tim’s wife Heidi, forms a friendship with Maisie, and they begin to learn a lot about each other. This leads to a concerned Maisie realising what actually is going on in this family!? But the question on my lips was; how are all these characters really connected?
Last, but definitely not least, we have Miller. A young boy growing up in the 1990s. This is no ordinary boy as Ronnie has created the perfect monster. I was drawn into this character and the sheer horror of him. He certainly adds fuel to the fire and excitement of this book.
I always thought I was pretty switched on as a reader, following the breadcrumbs to get to the answer, but Ronnie left me trailing behind when it came to the ending. I was trying to add 2 + 2 but getting 5. The conclusion was one I never would have guessed, so hats off to you Ronnie, for fooling me.
Lies Between Us is an intricately woven, compelling tale that is made all the the more interesting through the use of various narratives, both past and present. Convincing characters, intense storytelling and short, snappy chapters made this my ideal read and my love for twisty, psychological thrillers has grown through Ronnie and I am incredibly excited for her writing future.
I am recommending far and wide.
