I Know The Truth by M.A. Comley

And finally on my M.A. Comley catch up day, I’m reviewing I Know The Truth which is a standalone psychological thriller. But first let me tell you all about the book!

From NY Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Justice series, M A Comley, who has sold over three million copies worldwide.

She did it, she escaped his clutches.

Now she lives under a new name.

For the past five years, Lucy has lived in fear of her past.
But all that is about to change when Matthew enters her life.

Will she be able to finally trust another man after….?

Which should she listen to, her heart or her head?

As she fights to obtain the happiness she deserves, someone is lurking in the shadows with their own dangerous agenda.

Will they be the one to determine whether she lives or dies?

I was pretty excited when I heard that Mel Comley was bringing out a psychological thriller and had it preordered as soon as I was able to! I adore Mel’s books as I find them quite relaxing (yes I know!!) and really enjoy cuddling up with one of her thrillers. I usually read them in one session and I Know The Truth was yet again another “cover to cover” read. It’s shocking, twisty and keeps you guessing throughout.

Lucy is hiding a damaging time in her past and is now just existing instead of living her life to the full. Five years ago something terrible happened to her and only her friend Trisha knows what. On a night out with Tricia she meets socialite Matthew and surprises herself by agreeing to go on a date with him! But soon she feels like someone is following her and accidents start occurring to those she is close to. What happened five years ago and how is it going to affect her new relationship? Because someone is out to ruin things for Lucy and doesn’t care who gets hurt in the process…

I loved loved loved I Know The Truth! It had a compelling storyline and I felt very maternal towards Lucy, recognising that she had been through some very difficult times in her past and it left me wanting to protect her. And that’s how Matthew felt too, becoming completely involved in the life of a woman he may not know as well as he thinks he does. The plot develops organically from that initial introduction to Lucy although I did worry that things were moving a little bit too quickly at times. Marry in haste and all that!!

A gripping and darkly disturbing novel that has made me want to read more standalone books from the writing machine that is M.A. Comley! I don’t know how she does it!
