My Review of Why She Lied by Julie Coons:
Julie Coons brings us Why She Lied, a thriller based on a true story, that has the element of surprise as well as the ability to make you think harder about the world around you. How can you ever be sure what is happening around you with all the ugliness in society that hides in the shadows?
Julie has fantastic intuition, but she doesn’t always listen to her gut. It is at those times when she finds herself in the most danger. When James comes into her life, everything in her soul tells her to stay far away from him, but she gives in to peer pressure and dates him anyway. That was her first connection to hell. Or was it?
I was on the edge of my seat during this whole book, appropriately disgusted and scared at all the right moments. Julie Coons brings this story to life in a way that no one else could. She put herself in danger repeatedly in this tale yet comes out on top in the end.
My only complaint is that the book is a bit repetitive. Every time I thought there would be some big revelation, the author jumped to how dangerous this all was and how James is a bad guy, etc. I found that I was frustrated a lot during this book.
For this reason, I award Why She Lied 4 stars out of 5. The book is excellent and worth a read. It will open your eyes to the ugly side of the world and how small the world is — a place where everything connects. If you enjoy true crime, you will enjoy this book.
