All My Lies by Sophie Flynn

Good morning, readers! Today I'm a stop on the Random Things tour for Sophie Flynn's All My Lies!

Anna is going to leave James. Today. 

But when Anna tells her lover, Sam, the one that got away, that she's put a deposit down on a cottage for the two of them, he bolts. He stops returning her calls, he stops answering her texts. Out of desperation, she goes to the police, convinced James has found out and done something to Sam. But the police say Sam is fine. What's more, Sam's own family says he fine and that he wants nothing more to do with Anna. 

Anna knows that can't be true. And she can't go back to her old life. Determined to find out what's going on, she's forced to confront the secrets and lies that have haunted her for so long. 

This is the kind of book where each chapter reveals new hidden details our narrator, Anna, is keeping from everyone—including the reader!

So Anna's relationship isn't great. Once upon a time, it was. But her husband is manipulative and controlling to a really exhaustive point. But it's the return of her high school sweetheart that gives Anna the courage she needs to leave. 

See, she's convinced that James will find her no matter what. But with Sam by her side, she knows she'll be safe. 

And it seems like Sam is all for them leaving together. Until it becomes a reality. 

Sam and Anna have a very complicated past, as becomes clear throughout the book. Anna believes she knows him better than anyone, even though they've been apart for some years now. And in spite of everything his family tells her. 

But does she really know Sam as well as she thinks? 

All My Lies is a tense and perfectly paced suspense!
