His name is Michael Carmody.
He is a writer and a father.
His son is lying in a coma, fighting for his life.

Her name is Lorraine Cheevers.
She is an artist and mother.
An illicit affair has destroyed her marriage.

Michael is desperate to find the couple who left his son for dead, a victim of a hit and run.

Lorraine is desperate to start a new life for her and her daughter.

Michael and Lorraine are about to cross paths – damaged souls, drawn to one another.

They don’t know that their lives are already connected.

They don’t know the web of lies surrounding them.

They are each searching for the truth. But when they find it, it could destroy them both.

Fragile Lies is a gripping tale of love and betrayal, which will entice fans of Liane Moriarty, Lucie Whitehouse and Jane Shemilt’s Daughter.

Note: previously published as ‘Deceptions.’

A very different read for me and thoroughly enjoyed it. Didn’t want to put it down and am having difficulty starting another book as I enjoyed this one so much. Will definitely read more by this author.

Enjoyed this book – complex tale of adult relationships and love of our children. lots of descriptive text which some reviewers have said detracted fron the story, however I relly enjoyed the layers that this created and felt it added different dimensions.Well done… off to buy Prodigal Sister now.

A genuinely hard to put down read! Don’t start this if you don’t have time to finish it. The gorgeous prose seep through every page whilst the story unfolds.

I read way too many books involving serial killers and so every so often I need a break and a book like this is just the thing I need. A wonderful relationship and family drama that makes you wipe away a tear when you have to leave such memorable characters behind when the story ends. I couldn’t sleep after I finished this in the early hours of the morning as the characters didn’t seem to want to leave my head and that rarely happens to me!

Exquisite writing, fabulous story.

This is the first book by Laura Elliot that I have read and it definitely will not be the last. This story absorbed me completely, so that, by the middle of the book I was living this tale, lost to the real world. The writing is so beautiful that I will reread this book just so I can celebrate every exquisitely constructed sentence. And what a story! It grabs hold of you from the first page, not letting go until the last. Forgiveness and betrayal, love and loss, courage and cowardice, a wide spectrum of human emotions are failings are covered in this fabulous book. The writing sparkles and shimmers like the lost bracelet, it burrows its way right into your heart. A beautiful story, written with heart. I will be recommending it to everyone.
