The Family Lie – Jake Cross / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @JakeCrossAuthor


You whispered goodnight to your daughter. You didn’t know that would be your last goodbye.

You wake up in the middle of the night.

Your five-year-old daughter is gone.

Your husband is nowhere to be seen.

Your family think he took her.

The police believe he’s guilty.

But he wouldn’t do that, would he?

He’s a loving father. A loving husband. Isn’t he?



My review

This month seems a month full of ‘meeting’ unknown (at least unknown to me) authors. It’s always a pleasure reading a story written by a favourite author because you know you will be in for a treat. But I also love being surprised by what new authors have in store.

The blurb is already sending chills down my spine and the book’s opener is very promising.

Maybe the story is not the most suspenseful I have read, but you certainly need to keep focused because the twists and turns make your head spin and if you do not pay attention you will have missed out on something. You are thrown into the past and dragged back into the present so fast you feel like you are sitting in a time machine. 4 stars.

Thank you, Jake Cross, Bookouture and Netgalley.


About the author 

Jake has making stuff up from a real early age. His parents never believed his silly lies when he was young, so he still has no idea why he thought he could invent a decent story as an adult. But he kept trying, and here we are. THE CHOICE is his first novel, the first of three thrillers to be published by Bookouture, and he hopes you like it. If you don’t, he at least hopes you don’t ask for a refund.
