The Liar’s Child – Sheryl Browne

I received an ARC of ‘The Liar’s Child’ by Sheryl Browne through NetGalley, from Bookouture. This book stood out to me, and I was pleased to be able to read when I got the approval through. The expected publication date is 21/09/21.

This book follows Kay, her husband Matt, and their five-year-old daughter Poppy. Poppy is struggling with an illness which could lead to a more serious condition.

Poppy goes to school like any normal five-year-old and she makes a new best friend called Olivia. When Kay sees Olivia for the first time, she can’t believe her eyes as she is like a twin of her own daughter. How could this be?

Kay has her suspicions about Olivia and soon her paranoia spirals, can she trust her Husband?

Matt is a neonatal specialist working in the paediatrics department of the hospital. Suddenly his brother returns to the area, and he must work through his fears and anxieties, due to the past they have between them.

What follows is a mass of secrets exposed, whose suspicions will be true? All that is certain is that Kay will do anything to protect her daughter.

I really enjoyed reading this book, although the amount of tension and paranoia between the characters had me going through the same turmoil in my head. I was constantly thinking: What is going to happen? Should they be trusted?

What shines through is the love that these parents have for their daughter. Their daughter is very brave and strong with what she is going through, and this would be a heart-breaking situation for any parent.

Overall, a tense and emotional psychological thriller, which shows a mother will do anything to protect her daughter.

My Rating:

💜💜💜💜.5 /5
