NEW REVIEW: Terri D - Yesterday's Lies

Terri D.
Yesterday's Lies
Available Now!
3.5 out of 5 books

Ever since David Sr. convinced his son and his best friend Benjamin to hold the truth of what happened that terrible night long ago, Benjamin’s life has never been the same. But David seems to have sucked it up and kept it moving without skipping a beat. Now Benjamin is back and he wants to make sure that the truth is told. His missions are two-fold; first, to talk to Toni and try to salvage some type of life with her and the other is to talk to David Jr.

Seven years ago, four friends (couples Benjamin and Toni and David and Jada) were enjoying life. Then Benjamin suddenly disappeared. Three people knew one truth, while two knew just enough to keep life moving with minimal questions asked and one at the helm controlling it all. A concocted story for all the right reasons ends up being the wrong plan altogether. Terri D. kept the suspense and tension running on high in her debut. It’s told from each supporting characters' perspective, which can make the book move a little too slow at times, but you’ll be drawn into the story from the very beginning. I enjoyed the personal hurdles of each character and their interactions with one another. I wish the editing was not as problematic as it was, but even with the editing issues, the book was worth the read.

The theme of relational half truths and suspect behaviors in Yesterday’s Lies settles across a canvas of intersecting storylines in the lives of a score of characters that will leave you asking yourself: Would I do that?
