Her Dark Lies: A Novel
Artist Claire Hunter is about to marry Jack, one of the sons of the wealthy Compton family, in a beautiful villa on an idyllic island off the coast of Italy. However, things begin to go wrong the day before they reach the island and increase once they set foot on it. Remains are found, Claire’s wedding dress is ruined, and bodies start to turn up. The Compton family has many enemies due to the nature of their business; Jack’s first wife, Morgan, died under mysterious circumstances; and Claire has secrets of her own. This weekend, lies will be exposed, but will they be Claire’s or Morgan’s?
The plot of this book had promise and was interesting at the beginning, but things started to fall apart in the middle. It ends with a lot more questions than answers, and not in a good way. There are quite a few storylines with holes. Most of the characters lack depth, making it hard to mourn them when they are killed off. If you enjoy the typical mystery you find on the best seller lists these days, you’ll love the shock and awe attempted here. I personally miss the days of mysteries with substance.
