The Lying Club: A Novel

We rated this book:


Natalie is an office assistant at an elite private school in Colorado, where she spends her days watching women like Brooke and Asha, parents who seem to have it all. Brooke and Asha’s girls are coached by the handsome Coach Nick, whom everyone wants. When Nick chooses to date Natalie, she thinks some of her own dreams are coming true. But it will all end with two bodies and three women forming The Lying Club to take their secrets to the grave.

There is a lot of similarity to Big Little Lies here, so those who are fans of Liane Moriarty will enjoy it, as well as those who just like reading about creeps getting their just desserts. One thing is really clear in this story: money does not buy you happiness, just a lot of drugs and alcohol to help dull reality. I really enjoy the storytelling method of knowing that someone has been murdered, but you don’t find out who until much farther in as you watch the story unfold. It adds to the suspense and mystery as you try to figure out who did it, even though you aren’t even entirely sure who the victim is.
