HER DARK LIES is the second thriller I’ve read by Ellison. I must applaud the author for her ability to create haunting tales in an eerie atmospheric setting. In this novel, readers are whisked away to the island of Isola to celebrate an upcoming wedding. However, the getaway location has become infamous over the years for mysterious and unexplainable deaths. Yes, you read that right!
When events begin happening that prove the island is preparing to repeat its doomed history, readers will be finding themselves carrying out their own personal investigation. Told between two different perspectives, the plot will be revealed and full of evil goodness!
The only downfall I found for this title was that it was a bit of a slow-burn, which I struggle with. Overall, HER DARK LIES is a book you’ll want to add to your list!
Fast-paced and brilliantly unpredictable, J.T. Ellison’s breathtaking new novel invites you to a wedding none will forget—and some won’t survive.
Jutting from sparkling turquoise waters off the Italian coast, Isle Isola is an idyllic setting for a wedding. In the majestic cliff-top villa owned by the wealthy Compton family, up-and-coming artist Claire Hunter will marry handsome, charming Jack Compton, surrounded by close family, intimate friends…and a host of dark secrets.
From the moment Claire sets foot on the island, something seems amiss. Skeletal remains have just been found. There are other, newer disturbances, too. Menacing texts. A ruined wedding dress. And one troubling shadow hanging over Claire’s otherwise blissful relationship—the strange mystery surrounding Jack’s first wife.
Then a raging storm descends, the power goes out—and the real terror begins…
