The short chapters definitely helped to make this a fast-paced and quick read whilst ratcheting up the intensity level as the story progressed. The voices from our two main characters, Sean and Charlotte were distinctively their own and had me feeling different emotions for each of them.

From the very first pages, I was hooked wanting to know about the tangle of lies that lead to one more lie. The premise of this story is disturbing and chilling here with the thought and reality of children so young committing crimes. I was fascinated by the unhealthy and toxic relationships here between the characters at a young age and the impact it had on them after a crime was committed.

The tension and suspense increased with each chapter as we become tangled in the web of deceit and lies and I was turning the pages as fast as I could to find out the truth.
Blog Tour | Book Review: One More Lie by Amy Lloyd
The truth in end left me completely satisfied with the way it all came together. View all 30 comments. A fascinating disturbing psychological thriller that had me fully immersed in the mind of an unreliable protagonist crippled by anxiety, fear, isolation, lack of social skills and emotional maturity. Asks the pertinent question of whether or not you believe child murderers are born pre-disposed to kill or are shaped by the environment they grow up in?
And also, if those who take a life can ever be redeemed? I won't deny that I found some parts tough to read, but Amy Lloyd handled difficult subje A fascinating disturbing psychological thriller that had me fully immersed in the mind of an unreliable protagonist crippled by anxiety, fear, isolation, lack of social skills and emotional maturity.
I won't deny that I found some parts tough to read, but Amy Lloyd handled difficult subject matter with sensitivity and caution. Recently paroled, Charlotte, just wants to start over, despite the fact that she lives in a halfway house, and wears an ankle monitor. She has a new name, a new job, is meeting new people, and seeing her psychiatrist on a regular basis. As long as Sean doesn't find her, everything will be okay.
When she was 10 years old, she along with her 11 year old best friend Sean, were convicted of killing a classmate. Well so Charlotte's been told — she doesn't remember doing so. Yes, as long as Sean stays away, she has a chance at a new life The start was a little slow — well at least the present storyline was, the flashbacks intrigued me right from the get go. The flashbacks are somewhat unusual — unordered, covering after the murder, the lead-up to the killing, Charlotte I'll stick to using her new name to avoid spoilers and Sean's meeting and friendship, and even as far back as six year old Charlotte, and her life between six and ten.
And those last few pages left me feeling chilled to the bone — yikes creepy! This was my first novel by Amy Lloyd , and I can't wait to read her back catalogue, and any future psychological suspense books she writes. US Release Date: 28th May, UK Release Date: 4th April, One More Lie is the second book published by author Amy Lloyd and having read her first I was extremely curious how the second would be.
Both of the books are fictional stories based off real life crimes and I was a little iffy on the first but still intrigued but in my opinion this one got even better.

One More Lie tells the story of Charlotte, a woman now in her late twenties that has just been released from prison. Charlotte does have the help of her trusted therapist though and hopes to make a good life for herself now. Amy Lloyd did a wonderful job writing this one through the eyes of her unreliable narrator.

Everything seems fine for Charlotte until she continues to think about Sean and her pull towards him. There were flashbacks that were present at the beginning of the story and felt that they were a tad bit all over the place.. Flashbacks of her childhood, murder, memories of Sean, and her present life. At the final reveal, I wasn't really that impressed with the story.
I did enjoy this book a little more than her first. I've been seeing many star reviews and am clearly in the minority on this one once again. Overall, 3. View all 8 comments.
Apr 13, Valentina rated it it was amazing. And to be honest, I was pleasantly surprised Amy managed to capture my interest with this story just as strongly as she did it with the plot of her first book. As disturbing or shocking as it was, it let me wonder from the beginning to end, and that alone deserves all my stars! View 1 comment.

I was sucked into the story from the very beginning and curious to see how it was going to play out.
I read and really enjoyed Amy's first book so I was keen to get hold of this one too. The subject isn't an easy one to read about but it was handled really well by the author. With a main character who is suffering memory loss it is hard to know what the truth is.

Charlotte is finally free from prison. As a child she was convicted of murder along with her best friend Sean. Now she has a new name and a fresh start to life. Complete with ankle monitor she really doesn't know what to do with herself apart from go to therapy and her therapist is her only friend.
But this time Sean is also out, and he has found her. Will she be able to stay focused and on the right path or will he drag her back down with him. Charlotte has no memory of the night in question. She lost her parents at a very young age and had a tough start to life. This is her chance to start again but she doesn't know how to. She is very childlike for an adult and does not know if she is guilty or not. Makes for a very interesting read. All opinions are my own and are in no way biased View all 4 comments.

Lloyd's psychological thriller, One More Lie was both interesting and horrific at times. With an unreliable narrator both from, not one, but two point of views, it keeps you on edge guessing who the bad guys are or if the bad guy even exists.

With memory loss, denial, and an upbringing that was less than stellar, both MCs keep you wondering which one is evil and which one was an angel and constantly flipping back and forth between the two. Slightly slow paced as the story unfolds, it was still a page turner and had me wanting to know all the details and how it would all end. Definitely one that fans of both the author and the genre will flock to and devour. View 2 comments. Mar 03, Liz Barnsley rated it really liked it.

I'm just like some other readers, it's left an imprint on me, I'm still thinking about this book. No one knows Charlotte's real identity, she's just been released from prison along with Sean.

She is extremely lucky to have been given a job, therefore Charlotte has the opportunity to put the past behind her, but will she keep out of trouble and go straight? With the intro before the main plot began, I was expecting something more regarding the new identity, cosmetic surgery party but this was never addressed throughout the read, which was a bit of a let down.
However, I quickly managed to forget about this once I became engaged in Charlotte's story. The POV goes back and forth from past to present and also through Sean's eyes at various moments.

Charlotte's main line has her a bit of an unreliable narrator as she cannot remember the past to reconcile the present. It's a lonely existence and the only person she's close to is acting strangely and not there as she once was. What gives?
How can she continue and is this really better than prison? There were a couple things I felt were left a bit hanging, but overall I thoroughly was engaged and needing to know where this was going to head. At a moderate page and with short chapters, this was easy to fly through and I recommend this to anyone who likes a bit of somber feel to a psychological suspense story.
Thank you Hanover Square Press for this copy. I admit I picked it up because a I needed something easy to read and b the ebook was 99p; I assumed it'd be at least mildly enjoyable because I liked Lloyd's debut, The Innocent Wife. At first glance, the premise here seems rather less original.

There's recently been a boom in UK thrillers about people who committed terrible crimes when they were kids — the inevitable result of a generation of emerging crime writers who grew up with the Bulger case. But Lloyd's protagonist, Charlotte her new identity, not her original name is a great creation. Her lack of understanding of the world is believable and moving, but vague enough to avoid raising hundreds of questions or highlighting contradictions. The subject matter is sensitively handled for a 'thriller', without sacrificing tension.
I was hooked. If you're in the mood for a snappy and readable crime novel, I would definitely recommend One More Lie. TinyLetter Twitter Instagram Tumblr This is the first book I read by this author.
