Wife. Mother. Liar.
At first glance Emma and Lucie seem very different, but they share an unspeakable vice. Beautiful, wealthy Emma appears to have it all with a loving husband and a seemingly successful life, but a restless craving has driven her to foolish actions. Meanwhile, young widow Lucie is struggling to make ends meet while coping with a troubled five-year-old.
When the law catches up with them they soon discover what they have in common: they lie. A lot.
Punished with community service, Emma and Lucie form an intense friendship, finding an unlikely third ally in Florrie, a septuagenarian who offers wise words and a shoulder to cry on.
But the lies don’t stop. They are hiding their misdemeanours from their loved ones and neither want their shame to come to light. As these unhealthy relationships drive them towards destruction, can they survive the fallout from their deceptions or will their lies destroy everything they love the most?
Revised edition: This edition of Everyday Lies includes editorial revisions.
Louise Guy has enjoyed working in marketing, recruitment and film production, all of which have helped steer her towards her current and most loved role—writer. Originally from Melbourne, a trip around Australia led Louise and her husband to Queensland’s stunning Sunshine Coast, where they now live with their two sons, gorgeous fluffball of a cat and an abundance of visiting wildlife—the kangaroos and wallabies the most welcome, the snakes the least! Awed by her beautiful surrounds, Louise loves to take advantage of the opportunities the coast provides for swimming, hiking, mountain biking and kayaking. When she’s not writing or out adventuring, Louise loves any available opportunity to curl up with a glass of red wine, switch on her Kindle and indulge in a new release from a favourite author.
