{read: psychological thriller} Never Tell a Lie by Hallie Ephron

This psychological thriller will keep you turning the pages. It opens with a garage sale, two very pregnant women, and an old house. But one of the women is harboring a grudge from high school, and she'll go to any lengths to get the justice she thinks she deserves.

Never Tell a Lie is a quick and enjoyable read, even if the plot is somewhat predictable. I still wanted to pick it up to see what happened next and if I had guessed correctly. Ephron does a good job of keeping the characters believable, and she resists the urge give the book an unreservedly happy ending and tie everything up with a neat bow. Just like in life, the characters realize that people make mistakes and you'll never know if they're telling the truth, but you still have to go forward.

Never Tell a Lie by Hallie Ephron (Harper, 2009)
My rating: 4 stars
