Friends Don't Lie

Friends Don't Lie

Riveting, thought-provoking, and impeccably written. I loved it’ Carol Mason

How far will the ties of friendship stretch before they finally break?

Everyone knows Melissa Silk and her two best friends: a walking poster for friendship and community. People might hate them if they weren’t so infectiously likeable.

But when a fatal accident causes their perfect world to shatter, Melissa can’t move on.

Everyone urges Melissa not to let obsession and paranoia pull their friendship group apart. But she knows that something about the accident doesn’t quite add up.

What if learning the truth means losing everything she
cherishes?

Because friends don’t lie?

Or do they?

This is a breathtaking novel of friendship and heartache, about the ties that bind us, but how lies can unravel everything.

Reviews

Riveting, thought-provoking, and impeccably written, Friends Don't Lie is an all-too-convincing reminder that even the most deeply-rooted relationships aren't always as trustworthy as they seem. I loved it
Carol Mason
Six friends, three families: a lifetime of shared memories; absolute trust. But when tragedy strikes a fault line appears through which secrets bubble up like lava and, like lava, these secrets threaten to destroy everything in their path. Cath Weeks writes with an assured hand about family and community and the cracks beneath our feet. Her characters are vivid and her plotting is deft. I could taste the air of Milford: the dust of its streets and the tang of salt in the air. The truth of why four went out to sea and only three came home took my breath away. This is an absolute must-read.
