Trish's rating: 3.5 - 4 of 5 stars

3.5 – 4 Full of Secrets stars

Family secrets, lies, trust, responsibility – Beautiful Liar is a graphic depiction of all of this and how two unlikely people find themselves in a relationship against all the odds.

This book has a tone that you always need to look out for yourself. Trust in yourself is the key to learning and understanding when people are genuine and want to help.

Nina and Alex are from completely different sides of the tracks and have different ideas about life. Alex living it up in his wealth and Nina struggling with what she has. We see the harsh split between the London wealthy and the poor – at times it felt agonizingly real.

But how will they adapt to being in each other’s lives? Will they be able to trust each other?

The story was interesting but at times I felt the writing fell flat hence the reason for my rating, but I did enjoyed it with plenty of twists and turns to keep me interested. I will say though, the attraction between Nina and Alex was a little light on, it was there, but it just needed a little more.

And the ending … it sort of just left me hanging. As it was a standalone, I was hoping for more closure. With no epilogue I was just left wondering what was in store for Nina and Alex’s future.

Overall it was a good easy read.

Thank you to Simon and Schuster for providing a review copy.
