Today I am reviewing The Liar’s Daughter by Rona Halsall. This was released on the 26th of April, published by Bookouture.
The call comes on an ordinary Sunday afternoon to say your sister has been admitted to hospital with a serious head injury. But you don’t have a sister… do you?
You’ve never doubted your parents. You’ve loved them without question your whole life. But your stepmother is uncharacteristically speechless, and your father isn’t well enough to understand.
So you get in your car.
Turn the key in the ignition.
Knowing everything behind you is a lie.
Not knowing what lies ahead: the truth… or something far darker?
A deliciously dark and twisty tale of deception, secrets and family ties, The Liar’s Daughter is perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, The Woman in the Window and The Family Upstairs.
It’s hard to imagine what would turn your life upside down more. Suddenly discovering a sibling you knew you never had, or finding out you’re been lied to your whole life by the people you trust the most. The blurb for The Liar’s Daughter sets a compelling scene of what’s to come and more!
Rona Halsall has done it again! This story drew me in like a magnet. I mean who doesn’t love a good family drama to make your own family look good. It is a thrilling read that I found to be a lot darker than what Rona Halsall normally writes, but I must say it suits her well. Very well indeed.
The first half of the book is slightly more on the slower side and is still very much enjoyable but, it’s the second half when things are really kicked into high gear. Suddenly I could not put my Kindle down. Each page flick began more frantic than the one before and had my heart racing with twists galore!
The Liar’s Daughter is Rona Halsall best work yet. Everything about this is on point. The writing is flawless, the characterisation is superb and it has been masterfully executed. All in all another outstanding read from Rona Halsall which I highly recommend.
Thank you to Rona Halsall, Bookouture and Netgalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Liar’s Daughter, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

Let’s Get to Know Rona Halsall
Rona lives on the Isle of Man with her husband, two dogs and three guinea pigs. She has been a bookworm since she was a child and now she’s actually creating stories of her own, which still feels like a dream come true.
She is an outdoorsy person and loves stomping up a mountain, walking the coastal paths and exploring the wonderful beaches on the Island while she’s plotting how to kill off her next victim. She also makes sure she deletes her Google history on a regular basis, because… well, you can’t be too careful when you spend your life researching new and ingenious ways for people to die.
She has three children and two step-children who are now grown up and leading varied and interesting lives, which provides plenty of ideas for new stories!
