BLOG TOUR - The Liar's Daughter


The call comes on an ordinary Sunday afternoon to say your sister has been admitted to hospital with a serious head injury. But you don’t have a sister… do you?

You’ve never doubted your parents. You’ve loved them without question your whole life. But your stepmother is uncharacteristically speechless, and your father isn’t well enough to understand.

So you get in your car.

Turn the key in the ignition.

Knowing everything behind you is a lie.

Not knowing what lies ahead: the truth… or something far darker?

A deliciously dark and twisty tale of deception, secrets and family ties, The Liar’s Daughter is perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, The Woman in the Window and The Family Upstairs.

Eva and her stepmum Linda are active carers for Eva's father due to the fact that he has dementia. Eva would do anything in order to be there for her father. One day Linda gets a phone call that ends up shaking Eva's world. The phone call prompted Linda to tell her that she has a sister. Eva has an older sister. How? She has never heard of this. Linda begins to tell the story...

If this was kept from Eva then what else could have been hidden from her? Not happy with the explanation she received from Linda Eva finds herself bound and determined to unearth any facts, even more lies, that have been hidden from her. The first thing Evan learns is that her sister is named Nancy. What is more is that Nancy has been hurt and needs help. 

Nancy lives in a remote area and Eva reluctantly agrees to stay there with her until Nancy recovers. Hopefully during this time Eva can find out how this secret was kept from her. The first truth revealed is Nancy's age, 40, sixteen years older than Eva. What is more is that something happened in Nancy's life when she was sixteen that in part became the reason for Eva being completely unaware of her existence. 

Trying to be there for Nancy while she recovers is not easy for Eva, especially when it proves that Nancy has a mean side. In fact, some of the things Eva learns are shocking. That shock passes right on to the reader. In my case I simply could not put this book down as I just had to fit the pieces of this story together. 

Alternate timelines and points of view are delivered at a rapid pace with twists and turns and rabbit trails that ensue in this thrilling story. Nothing is as it seems and I loved watching things come together. Although the story did have a slow start the tension definitely picked up and grabbed my attention like a vice. The Liar's Daughter is another exciting book that I have had the pleasure of reading by Rona Halsall. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.


Rona lives on the Isle of Man with her husband, two dogs and three guinea pigs. She has been a bookworm since she was a child and now she's actually creating stories of her own, which still feels like a dream come true.

She is an outdoorsy person and loves stomping up a mountain, walking the coastal paths and exploring the wonderful beaches on the Island while she's plotting how to kill off her next victim. She also makes sure she deletes her Google history on a regular basis, because... well, you can't be too careful when you spend your life researching new and ingenious ways for people to die.

She has three children and two step-children who are now grown up and leading varied and interesting lives, which provides plenty of ideas for new stories!
