Thank you to Ballentine Books for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 


A review for  Better Liar is hard to write because this is a book that I don’t want to say too much about.  The book starts out simply enough, the story of a woman looking for her sister so she can get her half of the inheritance her father left.  But as the story progresses and the secrets begin to come out, the story is not so simple anymore.  

Leslie and Mary are the two main characters, and it is clear from the beginning they both have some things to hide.  Because of that, I had a bit of trouble connecting to either of them. I personally find it hard to like a character that you know has a few major secrets.  

This book is certainly full of twists and turns and once the story got going I had to find out what was going to happen next.
