Every Last Lie: A Gripping Novel of Psychological Suspense
Every Last Lie was an emotional rollercoaster to read. With a love story that ends with tragedy and a mother-daughter relationship strained from illness, I was moved to tears in the final chapters. Mary Kubica describes a marriage filled with happiness and unconditional love, making the death of the husband absolutely heartbreaking. You must experience the stages of grief alongside Clara, the newly widowed wife, as she searches for the answers behind her husband’s death.
On top of losing her husband, Clara must also face the reality that her parents are aging and her mother is being consumed by a terrible disease. Mary Kubica’s description of dementia is something I’ve had to experience firsthand. I sympathize greatly with Clara, and it strained my heart to feel those emotions toward this disease again.
This novel took me for a ride, constantly forcing me to change my mind about who was responsible for her husband’s death. Toward the end of the book, when all of the pieces start to fall together, I became very annoyed with Clara. I wanted to shake sense into her, which was very frustrating. The ending was very sad, and although the conclusion was a bit anticlimactic, it stirred my emotions. I enjoy reading because it makes me feel something, and Every Last Lie certainly succeeded at that.
