Today it is my great pleasure to be joining the blog tour for Jenny Blackhurst’s latest novel, Someone is Lying. Thanks to Anne Cater of Random Things Tours for inviting me to join in. I have an extract of the book to share with you all, just as soon as we’ve taken a look at what the book is all about:
About the Book
One year after Erica Spencer trips and falls down a flight of stairs at a lavish Halloween party, the residents of the exclusive gated community where she lived have comes to terms with her death and moved on with their lives.
Until one day, a post on the school’s website announces there will be a podcast to expose what really happened on the night of the accident. Six suspects are named, with the podcaster promising to reveal the murderer by the end of the series.
Everyone in this community has secrets to keep, and one of them is already a killer…Available from: Amazon | Kobo | Waterstones | Playstore | Apple Books
From the Book
No one had expected the Facebook post, yet just minutes after it appeared everyone had seen it and they all had something to say. That’s the way things were in our community. Good news travels fast, but bad news? Usain Bolt had nothing on scandal in Severn Oaks.
The first post didn’t name names, but in a way, I suppose that was worse. Everyone knew who they were talking about, but those six had to front it out, pretend they had no idea it was them, and wait. Wait for the next episode, wait to see if they would be named as a murder suspect by that pitchy, nasal voice. A suspect in my murder, as it happens. Because although I’d love to say that reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated, the fall was unfortunately the end of the story for me. But for the Severn Oaks Six, as they would later become known, it was only the beginning.
Every story has to have a hero. And that hero has to want something.
Well, this is my story . . . so what do I want?
I want everybody to know the truth.
Because someone is lying.
