What The Comfort of Lies is about:
A little girl’s birthday triggers a collision course for three women—the woman who gave birth to her, the woman whose husband fathered her, and the woman who adopted her—forcing them to face the damages of infidelity and make decisions about marriage, motherhood, and their careers.
I absolutely loved Randy Susan Meyer's novel, The Murderer's Daughters, so it was an absolute no-brainer for me to pick up this one! I thought Randy Susan wrote a pretty tight storyline and I felt that the whole scenario was very plausible. What I was surprised about was my own reaction to Tia....if I met her in-real-life I think I would have to slap her. There was that needy and all-about-me attitude that absolutely swallowed her entire personality and there was NO sympathy from me with her heartache over deciding to give up her child for adoption. As a woman I understood Juliette and her need to know everything about her husband's affair, no matter how painful, because she needed to deal in truth. The title of the book makes complete and perfect sense when you finish this book...and had me wondering how many of us out there are doing the same thing about taking comfort in the lies we tell ourselves and others?
Recommend? I wouldn't hesitate to tell my friends about this book. I was totally invested from the first chapter and couldn't turn the pages fast enough!
