My Word Against His by Lauren North / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @Lauren_C_North

My future hangs in the balance. They’re questioning both of us and every word I say matters. I need to be careful – it’s my word against his, and I can’t afford to lose…Thirteen years ago. Teenager Lucie babysits our little son Henry. She’s like the daughter I never had. And she believes we’re the perfect family – just me, my husband and Henry.But Lucie doesn’t really know what’s happening behind closed doors. Until one night, she sees something so awful she leaves. And my family is never the same again…Now, Lucie has reached out, desperate for my help. It’s been thirteen years of silence, but I would recognise her voice anywhere. She’s back: and so are the secrets she took with her.What did she see that night? And does she know my side of the story, or only his?I hope she knows what she’s doing. Because there is no line I won’t cross to protect the ones I love – or the secrets I’ve worked so hard to hide…




Starting a new book is always thrilling, but when it’s by an author I don’t know yet it gives me a different vibe. When you read a book by a writer you have read one of their works before, you know more or less what you can expect. Here it’s all new, which of course is not a bad thing. It’s a bit like leaving an old friend  and getting to know a new one. It’s exiting and a bit “scary” at the same time. 🙂

Can you trust an author? 🙂  Aha good question. It’s very true they like messing with your head, pushing you in one direction and making you believe what they want you to believe. So no, you can not trust them, but on the other hand they always come clean at the end of the book, confessing they tricked you. You cannot be mad at them, can you because they, once again, gave you a very enjoyable read and made you forget about the world for a couple of hours.

At the end of the day, you cannot believe everything they say, but they do it with the best possible intentions: writing a great book, filled with wonderful and sneaky characters, keep you guessing until the bitter end and make your mouth fall open with the revelations. 

Let’s hope authors keep on doing this so we can keep on being entertained by these word wizards. This author is one of them for sure. I liked the story a lot. 5 stars

Thank you
