Ben Taylor is having a really bad day - travelling back home after having yet another row with his ex-wife, not having his little girl Sophie with him, and now a rainstorm to top things off. But when he rounds a corner and hits a woman that is walking in the middle of the road, life is going to get a lot more complicated for Ben.
Milla Graham has fabricated many life stories since she was a child, and when she finds herself in the home of the local policeman, Ben, it is only natural that she continues this trend of deception. Although Milla may appear to be a drifter, she has returned to the area of Buckley for a very specific reason. Eighteen years ago, a wealthy publisher, Patrick Graham, went crazy and murdered his entire family, setting fire to their grand mansion in a rage. But Milla is on a dangerous mission to prove that Patrick, her father, is innocent and catch the culprit who evaded justice for so long.
But there is only one problem - Milla Graham died in that fire when she was six years old, so who exactly is this woman claiming to be Milla? And when the body of a young woman is found in a replica crime scene, it soon becomes obvious that the two cases are connected. Can Ben stop his attraction to this infuriating woman that deceives him and evades him at every turn? Or are his feelings for her clouding his judgment and about to cost someone else their life?
TRUST ME I LIE by Louise Marley is one of those novels where you are convinced you have the mystery solved, only for her to flip it upside down in the next chapter. Fast-paced with scenes of intrigue and danger, this novel really kept me hooked. Now don't get me wrong, this book is certainly a mystery, but there are also many scenes that made me laugh, and I really enjoyed the connection that existed between Ben and Milla. Milla is such a fascinating character that kept me wondering throughout, and I enjoyed seeing beneath her facade throughout the novel. With witty dialogue and compelling characters, we are whisked on a murder trail through fairy tales, and old manor houses, to idyllic cottages, and modern mausoleums. TRUST ME I LIE by Louise Marley has suspense, mystery, murder, and attraction and I highly recommend it.
