The First Lie By A.J Park | Book Review

If you are looking for a fun, fast paced domestic thriller then carry on reading because today I'm taking part in the blog tour for the amazing thriller, The First Lie by A.J Park which ticks all of those boxes. Thank you Orion* for sending over a copy. 

What is The First Lie about: 

When Paul Reeve comes home to find his wife in the bathroom, bloodied and shaking, his survival instinct kicks in.

Alice never meant to kill the intruder. She was at home, alone, and terrified. She doesn't deserve to be blamed for it. Covering up the murder is their only option.

But the crime eats away at the couple and soon they can't trust anyone - even one another...

What did I like about The First Lie:

I really enjoyed The First Lie. I love thrillers which are fast paced with short chapters and this book definitely fits into that category. I found it really engaging and it had me hooked till the very end.

Even though I could kind of see where the story was going, I did not see the ending coming. It definitely was a shock.

I also really liked the writing style. It was simple and easy to follow, which made the whole book more engaging and a really fun reading experience. 

What did I not like about The First Lie:

Overall, I really enjoyed this thriller and I highly recommend it. The only issue I had with this book was that the story line could be considered a little bit far fetched and silly, so in places the actions of some of the characters were questionable. However, this doesn't really bother me too much because I like engaging thrillers even if the plot could be considered a bit silly. 

Who would I recommend The First Lie to:

I would recommend this thriller to everyone. I think if you haven't read a lot of thrillers, I think you'll really enjoy this one. It reminded me a lot 'My lovely wife by Samantha Downing', so if you like that thriller you might like this one too.

I would just add, there are trigger warnings for suicide, murder and violence, so if that is something you find difficult to read, maybe give this one a miss.

Overall thoughts:

Overall, I gave this book four stars. I really enjoyed it and I highly recommend it, if you are on the look out for a well written domestic thriller.
