Publisher's Summary

A National Best Seller

From the author of The Islanders comes a warm, witty and suspenseful novel filled with small-town secrets, summer romance, big time lies and spiked seltzer, in the vein of Liane Moriarty.

Truth: Sherri Griffin and her daughter, Katie, recently moved to the idyllic beach town of Newburyport, Massachusetts. They’ve been welcomed by Rebecca Coleman, unofficial former leader of the Newburyport Mom Squad, and her teenage daughter Alexa, Katie’s new babysitter.

Truth: Alexa has time on her hands after a falling-out with her friends involving her popular YouTube channel. Katie can’t be left alone because of nightmares that don’t jibe with Sherri’s vague story about her past. Rebecca Coleman has been spending time with someone she doesn’t want people to know about just yet.

Lie: There’s no new man in Rebecca’s life, and it’s definitely not one connected to the Mom Squad. Alexa isn’t seeing anyone new herself and plans on shutting down her YouTube channel before leaving for college. Sherri Griffin’s real name is Sherri Griffin, and a bad divorce is all she’s running from.

A blend of propulsive thriller and gorgeous summer listen, Two Truths and a Lie reminds us that happiness isn’t always a day at the beach, some secrets aren’t meant to be shared, and the most precious things are the people we love.

Really more of a YA novel...

I thought this would be a lot more interesting. The story is told mostly from the POV of the 17 year old Alexa. Pretty immature 17 years old actually. I'm not that interested in reading about young love so much. The suspense would probably play well for a young unsophisticated audience.

cute story!

Such a fun read! Great beach/pool read. Not too heavy and the characters are great! Does take some attention in the beginning to get the characters straight but after that its smooth sailing.

Two Truths & a Bore

Ugh
I literally almost didn’t even bother finishing this book a dozen times....
One (ONE) chapter 80 something was riveting for maybe five seconds....

It’s an insult to Liane Moriarty to compare this to Big Little Lies.
NOT
EVEN
CLOSE

I also didn’t find the narrator to be particularly appealing but given the disastrous characters & writing, I can’t really blame her for not having much to work with.

Spoiler Alert

Alexa was vapid & shallow & cringeworthy.
Sherri was irritating but also authentic in a weird way & Rebecca was downright pathetic.
I did manage to like Morgan & Katie the best & of course Cam, the only rational, kind, smart,savvy & likable adult in the book.
The “Mom Squad” does indeed exist & the author, like a lot of us Moms, did capture that sub culture in a glass house kind of way.

loved it!

If you liked Big Little Lies on Hbo then you should like this too! It was a different read than my usual and I'm glad my sister recommended it to me!

Enjoyed it

An easy read. Enjoyed the format, different plot lines and characters — if you like Elin Hilderbrand you will enjoy this book.

Liked it but not a great wrap up.

Enjoyed most of it but did not like the way it wrapped up for sub-stories I liked most. Some odd things thrown in that did little to move the story forward. It just sort of ended.

Awesome read!

It is touted to be similar to Liane Moriarty. I would say it was better. A wonderful story of friendships and intrigue, twists and turns... sans the obnoxious language of Moriarty.

Good narration isn’t enough

TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE is a book with an interesting, yet poorly executed premise lacking true plot. Good narration isn’t enough to make this story worthwhile.

It was ok

I was really excited by the title to read this but it didn’t live up to expectations. The ending was the worst in so many ways! The book was good till the end which is why I rated it so low

Summer read

I did enjoy this in a summer read sans beach kind of way. Nothing taxing, no real tension just filled a few hours.

I enjoyed the narration.
