Publisher's Summary

"A mindbender." (Jessica Knoll)

"Riveting...a winner." (Laura Dave)

"A knockout." (Mary Kubica)

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Last Flight comes a twisted con-woman thriller about two women out for revenge—or is it justice?

Two women. Many aliases.

Meg Williams. Maggie Littleton. Melody Wilde. Different names for the same person, depending on the town, depending on the job. She's a con artist who erases herself to become whoever you need her to be—a college student. A life coach. A real estate agent. Nothing about her is real. She slides alongside you and tells you exactly what you need to hear, and by the time she's done, you've likely lost everything.

Kat Roberts has been waiting 10 years for the woman who upended her life to return. And now that she has, Kat is determined to be the one to expose her. But as the two women grow closer, Kat's long-held assumptions begin to crumble, leaving Kat to wonder who Meg's true target is.

The Lies I Tell is a twisted domestic thriller that dives deep into the psyches and motivations of two women and their unwavering quest to seek justice for the past and rewrite the future.

Just awful

Could not finish this. Where are these good reviews coming from??? One of the main characters launches a lifelong vendetta against a woman who….wronged her? That she would blame the other (also inane) character for what happened to her is so ridiculous that it’s impossible to take the rest of the plot seriously. And the narration! The reader tends to go up on random last words. Avoiding the reader and writer in the future.

Started off great…hated it by 2/3rd’s in. Horrible ending.

Ok, so I normally don’t write many reviews, but I felt compelled with this one because it started so strong and I hated it by the end and wish I had saved my time. It really grabbed me from the beginning and was interesting I’d say about 1/2- 2/3 of the way in. And then it just got so unrealistic. SPOILER ALERT: It’s never really explained how Meg pulls off her cons. We’re supposed to think she’s quite good at this but she doesn’t account for things like the internet or social security number or money trails… plus the people she’s conning would have to be the most unrealistic,naive, simplistic beings alive; yet they’re supposed to be men of great wealth, power, and influence? People in those positions usually don’t get there by being too dumb to notice the VERY obvious. They spill their deepest darkest secrets just because Meg talks to them once or twice? That’s all it takes? Also Meg is the con artist with the heart of gold, only doing a vigilante’s work for the greater good based off of ‘girl code’ from when she was a teenager…Really? Likewise, Kat is incredibly slow, especially for a supposed investigative journalist. Things she’s just realizing the reader has thought of 50 pages back without much effort. She’s also very immature, especially for her written age, blaming people irrationally and then making in depth psychological profiles ( so and so isn’t a sociopath because….) that we’re supposed to believe, however these are observations based off of her wildly swinging emotions. Lastly, I love revenge stories ( Jane Doe is a great one) but literally EVERY MAN in this novel is vilified, even the assumed ‘good ones’ and nearly every woman is victimized. It’s way too much. Every stereotype for rake is utilized here, and then the trauma is suddenly overcome basically because they just decided to. Done. Easy peasy, right? Speaking of: trigger alert for anyone with sexual harassment trauma. The ending also was so unsatisfactory and just unbelievable to the extreme…. Skip this one. If you want to read one of hers read The Last Flight, it was much better than this at least. The performance and voice acting in this was top notch though, no doubt about that.

Not all women are victims and all men aren’t predators

If you believe all men are evil and prey on women, this is the book for you. Bashing men is so over played and exaggerated. Sick of whiny women who take no accountability for anything.

Buckle up, you’re in for a crazy ride!

Julie Clark does it again! I highly recommend this book if you like a psychological thriller/mystery without the scary factor. This has major girl power vibes and justice! I couldn’t put this down.

I literally clapped at the end

This was a fantastic novel!! The story line is great and easy to follow. Narration is wonderful. I love a story when terrible people get what they deserve; this novel serves it up. — not a spoiler since you get this in the first couple of chapters.

One of the best

I have hundreds of books in my Audible library and few have come so close to being this wonderful. The character development makes you care what happens to them, without slowing down the pace of the story.
The plot itself is excellent with surprises and twists, which I won’t say much about for fear of ruining this book for anyone.
After so many disappointing books lately, I’m glad to have had my faith in the written word renewed.
Last but not least, narration was well done also.

Julie Clark doesn’t disappoint

What a fantastic read. I loved all the twists! Meg is my hero and I wish there were more Megs out there in the world willing to wrong the rights that are done against women. Especially in these times

Hmmm....perplexed by the positive reviews

Truly scratching my head over the many positive reviews. So I'll chalk this up to "not my style." For me, the narration felt forced and over acted and likely the main reason I couldn't stick with the book. (One of the narrators speaks nearly every sentence as if asking a question...I get that a lot of people do this in conversation, but it became annoying very quickly!) The characters were just not believable (for example, Meg being portrayed as a masterful con artist yet her tactics - and her inner thoughts/strategies - were absolutely lame making it impossible to believe anyone would fall for these cons). And the storyline did not live up to "psychological thriller." Again, maybe not my style or just wasn't what I was expecting, but I'm stumped by all the positive reviews. I very rarely quit on a book (sometimes regretting a decision to go all the way to the end) but I just couldn't stick with this one.
