Publisher's Summary

Wife. Mother. Liar.

At first glance Emma and Lucie seem very different, but they share an unspeakable vice. Beautiful, wealthy Emma appears to have it all with a loving husband and a seemingly successful life, but a restless craving has driven her to foolish actions. Meanwhile, young widow Lucie is struggling to make ends meet while coping with a troubled five-year-old.

When the law catches up with them they soon discover what they have in common: They lie. A lot.

Punished with community service, Emma and Lucie form an intense friendship, finding an unlikely third ally in Florrie, a septuagenarian who offers wise words and a shoulder to cry on.

But the lies don’t stop. They are hiding their misdemeanours from their loved ones and neither want their shame to come to light. As these unhealthy relationships drive them towards destruction, can they survive the fallout from their deceptions or will their lies destroy everything they love the most?

Revised edition: This edition of Everyday Lies includes editorial revisions.

Worth the read

It’s a little slow starting out but it gets better. The voice of the 5yr old is a bit unrealistic . The narrator makes him sound more like a preteen with hormones. Overall a good clean read

A Sweet Story!

This was quite a good little story, a pretty easy listen while keeping the reader’s interest and attention all the way through. Filled with humor and fun while at the same time tackling a number of pretty serious issues. Some truly great characters: chuckle, chuckle, chuckle. A very original story well worth a listen…🥰

Every day lies fiction

This is an incredible read involving the friendships between three women who met during community service. Each woman had their secrets & improved each other lives. I would suggest this book to everyone because we realize no one is perfect. Honesty is the best policy.

Worth finishing

It start out slow but I’m glad I listened to the whole book. I ended up enjoying it. It’s worth listening to the whole book, don’t give up because it’s slow & uninteresting at the beginning 🙁. I ended up loving the characters.

Well done

Narrated well and a pleasant voice. I recommend it to read along with the book. Just my preference combining the two together though.

Gave up a couple of hours in

Unfortunately I found the narrator to be really inconsistent. I thought the Canadian character was from Ireland or France! The rest of the characters were confusing so it took a while to work out who was who. The storyline wasn't interesting enough for me to persevere. I cannot comment on the whole book as I gave up after a couple of hours, but the scene setting sounded cliched and predictable.

Excellent characters and story

Highly entertaining and fell in love with the characters. The author took her time to develop what could have been a predictable storyline. I’ve not read this sort of book for years - but this adult female fiction for those of us who read “chick lit” in the 90s. Instead of stories about women and their love interests, it was about secrets that could destroy us, which when shared with fellow strugglers can provide the basis for lasting new friendships in unlikely places.

I’ve pre-ordered her next book. Fab job!
