Lies that Bind Us

Book: Lies that Bind Us
Author: Andrew Hart

Jan needs this. She’s flying to Crete to reunite with friends she met there five years ago and relive an idyllic vacation. Basking in the warmth of the sun, the azure sea, and the aura of antiquity, she can once again pretend—for a little while—that she belongs. Her ex-boyfriend Marcus will be among them, but even he doesn’t know the secrets she keeps hidden behind a veil of lies. None of them really know her, and that’s only part of the problem.

Then again, how well does she know them?

When Jan awakens in utter darkness, chained to a wall, a manacle around her wrist, her echoing screams only give her a sense of how small her cell is. As she desperately tries to reconstruct what happened and determine who is holding her prisoner, dread covers despair like a hand clamped over her mouth. Because, like the Minotaur in the labyrinth in Greek myth, her captor will be coming back for her, and all the lies will catch up to her…-Goodreads

Review: Meet Jan. Jan is a habitual liar going on vacation with friends (I use that term loosely) she met in Crete five years ago. Jan is not a likable person, nor are her "friends." Unfortunately, this book didn't work for me on any level. I can dislike characters if the storyline is good but this was predictable and boring. 

Grade: 1/5
