#BlogTour! #Review – #TheFriendWhoLied by Rachel Amphlett (@RachelAmphlett) @BOTBSPublicity

Last but not least, another BOTBSPublicity blog tour to end the day, this time for Rachel Amphlett and ‘The Friend Who Lied’. Many thanks to Sarah for the blog tour invite and ARC, here is my review:

What she doesn’t know might kill her…

Lisa Ashton receives a last-minute reprieve from death two weeks before her birthday. Regaining consciousness, she is horrified to learn one of her friends has been killed – and saved her life.
As she recovers, she uncovers a trail of carefully guarded reputations, disturbing rumours, and lies. Soon, Lisa begins to wonder if one of her friends is hiding a terrible secret.
Because five of them entered the escape room that day, and only four got out alive.
And someone is determined to cover their tracks before she can find out the truth.

Can Lisa find the killer before someone else dies?

What does TWG think?

Wowza!! Nothing like coming back to reality with a bang! Why did the book have to end! Rudeness!!

‘The Friend Who Lied’ reminded me of Cleudo…in book form! Obviously not the whole candlestick and all that jazz, but the overall premise of the story if that makes sense. Such an incredibly clever way of putting a story together, and so very well thought out.

Lisa’s life has been saved. Just. However someone she knows was killed, therefore saving her. But how did they die? Lisa wants to get to the bottom of what had happened and, even though she is over the moon that her life was saved, the relief is tainted due to the loss of her friend.

This was such a thrilling, cat and mouse type of read. There was danger, suspense, shocking discoveries, and the added bonus of feeling like a detective. Honestly, Rachel Amphlett made the chase thrilling, and the pace rocket like. I genuinely was gutted that the book had come to an end because I had found myself so invested in trying to work out who killed Simon, as well as unearthing some of the other characters secrets.

A chilling, unnerving, cleverly crafted novel – I would have hated being the ‘mouse’ in this book, that’s for sure!!
