Publication Date: Nov 10th, 2020

Publishers: Margaret K. McElderry Books

I’ve been on a Mystery Thriller kick and I wanted to give another book by Chelsea Pitcher a go. This one however didn’t live up to expectations.

Lies Like Poison felt very disjointed to me. The story was all over the place and the pacing was a little off. I felt very disconnected from the mystery & kind of lost interest towards the end.

I also found this one a lot more predictable than This Lie Will Kill You, which is the other book I read by the same author. I think that was one of the things that led to my lack of interest for the mystery in the end as I guessed it fairly early on.

Oh and the characters were all kind of annoying. I think a couple of them were meant to be unlikeable but I didn’t really care for any of them that much. Which again added to my lack of interest in what happened in the end.

Overall, I didn’t particularly care for this one. It wasn’t necessarily bad but I was underwhelmed and just didn’t find myself caring for the characters or what happened to them. I think This Lie Will Kill You was definitely a stronger book than Lies Like Poison.
