Today I am hosting the blog tour for Jess Ryder and her new book Lie to Me.

Lie To Me

UK 🇬🇧

 How can you tell the truth… if all you’ve ever known is a lie?

Three minutes. That’s all it takes for Meredith’s entire world to fall apart when she watches the videotape of her four-year-old self with Becca, the mother who abandoned her.

Meredith can’t believe what her eyes have seen. Yet what if her memory has locked away the painful reality of her childhood? Can there be any truth in the strange and dangerous story her mother forced her to tell on camera? 

The search for answers leads Meredith to Darkwater Pool, the scene of the murder of a young woman, Cara, over 30 years ago. What could possibly be the link between her mother and the victim?

To find the truth Meredith must search through a past that is not her own. The problem is, she’s not the only one looking…

A dark, compulsive psychological thriller that will keep you up all night. Perfect for fans of Paula Hawkins and Louise Jensen.

About the author

Jess Ryder is the pseudonym of Jan Page, author, screenwriter, playwright and award-winning television producer.  After many years working in children’s media, she has recently embarked on a life of crime.  Writing, that is.   So she’s very excited about the publication of her debut thriller Lie to Me.  Her other big love is making pots.


When I first started to read this book I found that the book was a masterpiece of psychology.   I couldn’t help but feel for the main character. 

Meredith is a confused person who sees a video of her when she was a child and it sends her down a path to learn all about her past and that of her mothers.

The book was great and showed a character who was loving but just wanted to know the truth.   I loved how the book progressed in the steady process.  The character seems to grow within the book from the beginning to the end.  

I can’t wait to see what comes next from this author.  

Bookouture has really hot the nail on the head with this book and the author is has such great talent that I can see many more books to come.
