An illicit affair has destroyed her marriage.

Customer Reviews

Did I enjoy it?

 on 11 January 2018
By Shebob1982
I read Fragile Lies after reading Guilty and the Betrayal by Laura Elliot and where I can’t put these two books down and I didn’t want the stories to end I found Fragile Lies not as compelling. Yes all the characters were strong, well written but more predictable then the previous books. Ok I didn’t see the twist at the end coming but even that was a bit of an anti climax. Did I enjoy it….yes and no it was much better written than a lot of other so called Physiological books available at this present time and Laura Elliot researches her book subjects very well I feel that having been blown away by the first two books this book didn’t quite reach the same dizzying heights. Well onto my next 2 books by Laura Elliot which will by accompanying me to the beach on holiday.

Like some other reviewers, I sometimes want to read something different from murder thrillers. Laura Elliot is a brilliant writer and her books have filled my need for a change.

A gripping and compelling story – for people who like to think.

Fragile Lies is a real page-turner of a book. It is set in Ireland and if you’ve never visited Ireland before this book will make you want to. The locations are painted like pictures. In fact you can almost taste and smell the sea air and feel the stony texture of the seashore as you walk upon it.

Very good book!

The first book I’ve read by Laura Elliott – had no idea what to expect but it was so enjoyable. Straight into the story & events without hanging about and the writing was very sensitive and considered. The ending was ruined for me though because in the Kindle version I purchased, chapter 65 (the last chapter) came after chapter 58, before then going on to 59 🙁 so take care if you’re about to read the book on kindle! Despite that, I am really looking forward to reading other books by Laura.

Fantastic read.

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.

Excellent Read

I found this book compulsive reading & hard to put down. The characters were well rounded & you almost felt you knew them. The plot is plausible & well played out. The end has a few unfinished ends but I like this in a book (I dislike books with predictably neat endings where everyone lives happily ever after). This is the first of Laura Elliot’s books that I have read & I have already downloaded another to my kindle.

Another beautifully written book by Laura Elliot

Another beautifully written book by Laura Elliot. Her use of language and ability to portray emotion is lyrical, and there is an honesty about the integrity – or lack of – her characters. The only thing I found a little disappointing was that she has used the coma scenario in another of her books. However, I still thoroughly enjoy the complexity of the interweaving plots and her style of writing.
