Book Review: Sometimes I Lie

Amber is in a coma. She can’t open her eyes but can hear everything, including the comings and goings of her husband and sister…who may not be the loving family her doctors believe them to be. She can’t remember the accident or the moments prior, but she knows somethings is off. As she try to piece things together in the present, we get to see the picture flesh itself out in the immediate past if the week before. Interspersed are diary entries from when Amber was 10 that may explain the why of it all.

This is one of those thrillers with a twist or two that will keep you on your toes. Perhaps the whole big twist device is getting old, but this book prompted me to look up message boards so I could discuss it, which is always a good sign. Every time I think I have it figured out, I remember a line that makes me question everything.

4 out of 5 stars.
