Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of the "pulse-quickening" (Good Housekeeping UK) In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 comes Ruth Ware's highly anticipated third novel, featuring her signature "verve and energy" (Library Journal).
On a cool June morning, Isa Wilde, a resident of the seemingly idyllic coastal village of Salten, is walking her dog along a tidal estuary. Before she can stop him, Isa's dog charges into the water to retrieve what first appears to be a wayward stick - and to her horror, Isa discovers it's not a stick at all...but a human bone. As her three best friends from childhood converge in Salten to comfort a seriously shaken-up Isa, terrifying discoveries are made, and their collective history slowly unravels.
Tackling the slipperiness of memories, the relativity of truth, and the danger of obsessive friendships, The Lying Game is a gripping mystery with compelling characters and electric prose, resulting in a can't-stop-listening thriller.

No spoilers - Long winded and repetitive

I love Ruth Ware's stories. She has great character development that allow you to "get to know" each character. Imogen Church is amazing, as always, and gives each character a clear and recognizable voice.

However. This story was very long-winded and there were a couple of times there were phrases/ideas repeated. There is a lot of focus on unsubstantial points (the baby's crying) - and you are brought over and over again to these topics.

The lead in the story also does some pretty impossible things with her baby (in my opinion) - especially as Ruth has made it very clear that the baby gets upset easily and often.

Just didn't work for me like her other stories have.

Publisher' Summary needs to be corrected...

The character's name mentioned in the summary is wrong. The person described is really named Kate. Isa is the storyteller. Maybe not a big deal but it bothered me.

The story just seemed to drag on and on...
