The Lies She Told by Lynda Renham @Lyndarenham #Spotlight #newrelease #thriller #mystery

It’s a pleasure today to share news of a new book from Lynda Renham – The Lies She Told was independently published on 5th July, available for kindle (just 99p at the moment on a special promotion – free via Kindle Unlimited), in paperback and in hardcover.

I’ve always been a big fan of Lynda’s romantic comedies. I’ve reviewed Perfect Weddings and Phoebe Smith’s Private Blog (links are to my reviews) here on Being Anne – and called them some of the best fun you can have with your clothes on – and also adored The Little Perran Romances, written as Amy Perfect. I was a little nervous though when she asked me to read her first “gripping psychological thriller with a jaw-dropping twist”, Remember Me, released in March 2017 – thrillers are, as you’ll know, a little outside my comfort zone – but it gripped me from the first page, I neglected everything else I’d planned for the afternoon, and read the entire book in one sitting (you’ll find my review here). A few more thrillers followed – Secrets and Lies, Watching You, and She Saw What He Did – but I sadly just haven’t been able to fit in the reading. I couldn’t manage it this time either – but I was really interested in taking a closer look…

A quiet village, a friendly community, a brutal attack…


Life in the village of Stonesend is pretty uneventful, that is until Detective Tom Miller is transferred there following a personal tragedy. He is not greeted well by local police officer, Beth Harper, who feels he is not up to the job.


The day of his arrival, Kate Marshall, a teacher at the local school, is beaten in her own home and left for dead. The villagers are left in a state of shock. Was it a random attack, or something more personal?

Looks good, eh? Wishing you every success with this one Lynda…
