Publisher's Summary

"Scalpel-sharp writing and a killer concept-dark, clever, compelling and utterly assured." (Lucy Foley, author of The Guest List, a Hello Sunshine x Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick) 

"Keep the lights on - you'll be turning pages deep into the night with this one." (Harlan Coben, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Run Away)

It all started with just one little lie. But we all know that it never ends there. Because, of course, one lie leads to another....

Growing up, Jane and Marnie shared everything. They knew the other's deepest secrets. They wouldn't have had it any other way. But when Marnie falls in love, things begin to change. 

Because Jane has a secret: She loathes Marnie's wealthy, priggish husband. So, when Marnie asks if she likes him, Jane tells her first lie. After all, even best friends keep some things to themselves. If she had been honest, then perhaps her best friend's husband might still be alive today....

Seven Lies is Jane's confession of the truth - her truth. Compelling, sophisticated, chilling, it's a seductive, hypnotic pause-resister about the tangled, toxic friendships between women, the dark underbelly of obsession, and what we stand to lose in the name of love.

Slow but engaging

This is the type of slow burn I love! Very well done unlikable narrator...slowly revealing why she killed her best friend’s husband. Sort of similar to Caroline Kepne’s “You”... only a female version who is obsessed with her best friend.

Just okay, but try if you're bored

Reliable narrator or not? This book was an ok read at best. It had some twists and a few surprising moments. Sort of. About 2/3 of the way through, it lost a little speed for me and didn't quite fully recover. The ending left a little to be desired. I'm only giving it 2 stars because up against other psychological thrillers that I've read, it really doesn't compare. But I would definitely give it a try if you have nothing else (at all) to read.
