Have you ever told a white lie?

Sam Davenport is a woman who lives her life by the rules. When her husband Neil breaks those rules too many times, Sam is left wondering not only if he is still the man for her but also if it’s time to break a few rules of her own.

Actions, however, have consequences as Sam soon discovers when what starts out as an innocent white lie threatens to send her world spiralling out of control.

White Lies is a warm, engaging read about love, deceit, betrayal and hope.

I have just finished reading White Lies and needed to express my feelings about the story immediately as I was totally gripped by the storyline.

On a very wet winter’s night Sam, Neil and David’s lives were about to change forever.  A split second decision was made which culminated into destructive actions.  Actions which then soon turned into a domino effect of lies and deceit and the covering up of the truth just to save one’s reputation.

The aftermath of this night wasn’t easy to forget and Sam’s conscience was ever present.  Sam was also in a very vulnerable place at the moment as her marriage had suffered recently when her husband Neil’s affair had come to light.  Sam was struggling with her emotions and she felt she needed to make amends however, this was to open up a whole heap of trouble.

White Lies is a dramatic, suspenseful romance.  I was gripped with the storyline and with all the twists and turns I wasn’t sure were the author Ellie Holmes was going to take me next.  At one point I found the storyline quite chilling and I feared for Sam and her children.  There is a little darkness to the storyline but as the story progresses and you learn more about all the characters involved you start to feel empathy but it didn’t stop me feeling on edge towards the end of the novel.  However, amongst all the angst and drama the author has created a diversion and has interwoven a wonderful, poignant story of a woman coming to terms with her grief and finding happiness and hope from the least expected of places.

A story of deceit, a story of betrayal, a story of a love that may or may not survive the obsession of another.
