35. The Lying Game by Ruth Ware
I read The Girl in Cabin 10 and enjoyed it well enough that when I had the opportunity to read an ARC of this book, I figured I would give it a go. The book follow four friends who went to boarding school together and developed a deep, dark secret about something that happened during their year together there that has kept them connected even though they haven’t seen each other in 17 years. But when one of them sends a mysterious text to the other saying she needs them, they’re all at her door within 24 hours to help figure out if someone has finally figured out their secret.
I did not care for this book at all. Everything in it seemed overblown. It made no sense to me even with their “secret” that these women would be so connected after being friends for less than a year. The mystery wasn’t that interesting to me and the reveal certainly didn’t do much for me. I give it a 4 out of 10.
