Controversial, twisty, thought-provoking and always gripping: He Said/ She Said is the suspense novel for 2017.
Who do you believe?
He said it was consensual. The woman said nothing. But Laura saw it… didn’t she?
In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse, Laura and Kit interrupt something awful.
Laura is sure about what happened. Later, in a panic, she tells a little white lie – and four lives are changed irreparably.
When the victim turns up on their doorstep, her gratitude spills into dangerous obsession. Laura and Kit decide to run – but Beth knows they have pledged to see every eclipse together. They will never be able to entirely escape her.
As the next eclipse draws near, Laura must confront the fallout from what she saw in the darkness. Confessing will cost her marriage; keeping the secret might prove fatal.
But all secrets, sooner or later, will come to light.
This story is about how one lie sets many more in motion, to the point that the entire relationship is based on deceit. Each character deceives the others. At first, the plot seemed a little obvious, until the story started unfolding and everything fell apart. No one is left unscathed.
I loved that the author used luna eclipses as they occurred over the years around the world. This was an effective devise that gave the characters a common interest and brought them together.
I thoroughly enjoyed the twists in this story about obsession, lies and relationships. Well worth the read.
