The Lying Game by Ruth Ware

Review From User :

A story of female friendship, lies and deceit.

This one had my heart pumping till the very end and I'm glad to see Ruth Ware delivering again.

The book tells the story of four friends who met in a boarding school when they were teenagers. They played "the lying game" until something happened and they were withdrawn from the school. Seventeen years later the last lie they told has come to haunt them. 

The novel takes place in London and also in an English coastal town. The story is narrated by Isa Wilde, one of the four friends and alternates between the present and the past.

I felt the tone was very gothic because of the descriptions and actions at the end. Also, the book is more character than plot-driven and is engaging, riveting, and chilling.

Overall, I loved this book   and recommend it to all.

FINAL NOTE: whenever I pictured the English boarding school then Hogwarts came to mind. Don't ask me why, it just did.
