The Liar’s Child by Sheryl Browne / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @SherylBrowne


I’ll do anything to protect my daughter…

When I pick my beloved daughter Poppy up from school one afternoon, my mind races when I see the little girl holding Poppy’s hand. With the same heart-shaped face, long brown hair and dark eyes, the two girls look identical. In fact, they look like sisters.

Is the secret I’ve been holding on to for so long about to be revealed?

That night, I cuddle Poppy even harder, desperately trying to decide what to do. And then my husband’s phone vibrates. A message. And then another. And another. All from a number I don’t recognise.

Is someone going to tell my husband what I did? Could I be about to lose everything I have worked so hard to protect?

But I’ve spent so long hiding the truth, I never stopped to wonder if I was the only liar in the family… The only thing I’m sure of is that nobody is going to take my child away from me.




When I saw my next read was one by this author, I was thrilled. I like the way she writes and takes you on a journey through the lives of her characters. What a journey it was’

I love psychological thrillers. The baddies are master manipulators, born liars and cheaters, but sometimes people play mind games because they seek revenge. Revenge for what has been done to them or a loved one or to keep someone they care deeply about, safe. No matter what they have to do or who they hurt in the process… there is only one goal and they are desperate to achieve it.

Talking helps. I totally agree, but often you are afraid to say or ask something because you are afraid of what the outcome or answer will be. It’s, a lot of times, insecurity that keeps you from having conversations. He wants to, but will she appreciate it and she has the same doubts. So, both keep quiet and the problems only escalate.

NO! Only a small two letter word, but it has so much meaning. Pity people ignore it completely on so many occasions. If they would listen, the world would be a greater place with a lot less problems and heartbreak.

This is a great emotional story with a few earthquakes included and I enjoyed it thoroughly. 5 stars

Thank you, Sheryl Browne and Bookouture
