White Lies ~ by Lucy Dawson

This was on sale and I got suckered in by the idea of suspense. But there is too much sex in the first part and two unreliable narrators ala Gone Girl which I read in 2012. I suppose the only redeeming feature is a somewhat interesting structure which goes from one unreliable narrator to the other both of whom eventually describe the same scenes. And then there are other characters which may or may not be “unreliable” in one way or another. One thing for sure, one of the two main characters is lying. And then comes Part 2 with its surprise ending.

Publisher’s summary:
A darkly gripping domestic drama about secrets and lies. 

When you have everything, you have everything to lose…. 

Alexandra Inglis is a respected family doctor, trusted by her patients to keep their most intimate secrets. And if sometimes the boundaries between duty and desire blur…well, she’s only human. But when Alex oversteps a line with Jonathan, one of her patients, she knows she’s gone too far. 

Jonathan is obsessive, and to get what he wants he will tear Alex’s world apart – threatening not only her career but her marriage and family, too. Soon Alex finds she’s capable of doing almost anything to keep hold of her perfect life as it begins to spin dangerously out of her control….©2018 Lucy Dawson (P)2018 Bolinda Publishing Pty Ltd
