Friends and Other Liars is about a crew that consist of Ruby Murphy Ally Danny and Emmett The crew has grown up together in the small town of Chatwick The crew has all stayed close together except for Ruby who escaped the small town after high school Fast forward 10 years Ruby receives a phone call from a fellow crew member Ally who tells her that one of their friends Danny has committed suicide Ruby grudgingly returns to her small town that she wanted to leave behind forever Ruby and the crews have a small surprise waiting for them by their fellow crew member Danny Danny has left each of them a letter which contains their deepest and darkest secret Even though Danny is no longer alive the letters contain threats that their secrets will be revealed to everyone regardless if they fess up to their secrets or not Sounds pretty juicy and gossipy right? What I liked about this novel the dual POV which alternates between past and present Ironically I was entertained with the past storyline then the present day I felt like the present storyline was dragging a little and was a tiny bit repetitive Characterization was pretty well developed in this novel as well so kudos to Kaela So I felt like this was a bit of a strange love story ish tied to small town drama and gossip I felt like the character focused on Murphy and Ruby which I didn't really like And can I just say Murphy you are a serious self centered ass lol He made me so mad in this book Grrrrr Overall this book was entertaining Not my favorite but glad I have been introduced to this author35 starsThank you to Netgalley and Sourcebooks Landmark in exchange for my honest reviewPublication date 2118Posted to GR 12618

Friends and Other LiarsNside each envelope is a secret about every person in the group Ruby's secret is so explosive she will fight tooth and nail to keep it hidden from those she once loved so deeply even if that means risking everythin ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5To check out my blog tour post go to of all thank you to Sourcebooks Landmark for sending me a review copy of this book All opinions are my own Friends and Other Liars A Novel was so different from what I thought it was going to be I was very intrigued that this book starts out by being narrated by a dead person That is definitely something that I haven't seen before; not like this anyway The prologue and the epilogue are done this way but the rest of the book bounces between members of the crew and between now after Danny's death and back then when they were growing up together and how they got to where they are The original crew consists of Danny Ruby Murphy Ally and Emmett who all grew up together; but the POVs switch between Danny the member that is dead epilogue and prologue only Ruby Steph Emmett's girlfriend and Ally Though to be honest the majority of this book is written from Ruby's point of viewFriends and Other Liars A Novel was just SO much than the blurb makes you think it is going to be I thought this was going to be a straight up mystery but I ran the full gamut of emotions as I was reading it There is love secrets lies pain loss etc The list just goes on and onI can definitely tell that Kaela Coble is an extremely talented writer The characters were something to behold and I had so many reactions as I was reading this book My mouth dropped open I gasped and I laughed among other things The only reason I gave this book a 4 instead of a 5 is because I found it a tad slow for my liking in the beginning and maybe a little too wordy I was so interested as the book went on though and had to know what all the secrets were and of course how everything was going to end upI was able to foresee some of the things that were coming but definitely not all of them which I loved There were also lots of short chapters which made it feel like a breeze to get through If I would have had time to read I probably could have finished this book in 1 day even though I actually ended up taking 3 This is a book that I really ended up savoring as it went on I was really blown away by the fact that this is Coble's first novel Final Thought I would definitely go into this book blind and without reading the blurb since you don't actually get what the book is all about from it It is just so much than the blurb gives you and I think it deserves to be read without judgement Also just be aware that this is than a mystery There is so much going on and the dynamic of these friends is evolving as the book goes on And just remember All things done in the dark have a way of coming to light Or so they say This title was published on 06 Feb 2018
