Book Review – The Last Time I Lied

As you know I run a book club over at Wildflower Book Club on Patreon and we read a book a month!
So I thought I would write reviews on each book we read after I’ve read them – and depending on how fast I read them you can probably tell if the book is good or not LOL!
But I will be posting SPOILER FREE reviews on these books – so let’s get started and if you love reading come join our book club where you can pay whatever you want a month!

The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

Two Truths and a Lie. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and Emma played it all the time in their cabin at Camp Nightingale. But the games ended the night Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out into the darkness. The last she—or anyone—saw of the teenagers was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips….
Fifteen years later, Emma is a rising star in the New York art scene, turning her past into paintings—massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches over ghostly shapes in white dresses. When the paintings catch the attention of the wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale, she implores Emma to come back to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor.
Despite her guilt and anxiety—or maybe because of them—Emma agrees to revisit her past. Nightingale looks the same as it did all those years ago, haunted by a midnight-dark lake and familiar faces. Emma is even assigned to the same cabin she slept in as a teenager, although the security camera pointed at her door is a disturbing new addition.
As cryptic clues about the camp’s origins begin to surface, Emma attempts to find out what really happened to her friends. But her closure could come at a deadly price.

Book Synopsis

This book was chosen by one of our club members and I was excited when she picked it!
The title seemed like something I would really enjoy and something that would pull you in…. and it did!

You start off with wonder and you don’t stop wondering what happened until the end!
I never felt bored with this book and even though it was a slow burn when coming to find out what REALLY happened to the girls that went missing I always had questions and other small mysteries to hold me over for the big finale.

I, of course like most readers, try to figure it out when I am reading and I was not correct in any way, shape or form, and that’s always fun!
Figuring it out can be fun too – but being way wrong and having another story unfold that you weren’t aware of is even better.

There are many different characters that you think could be the cause of what happened and many different mysteries inside the campground – but what about the biggest mystery of all?
What happened to the missing girls?!

You will wonder, you will guess, you will be wrong in all instances and you will still love this book!

5/5 for me!

Don’t forget to come join us in book club – you won’t regret it –
