Kayla reviews LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Summary:

What’s drawn four damaged people back to Merle House? The answer could destroy them all in a gripping short story of the truths we bury and the lies we tell ourselves.

Matthew, Claire, Ian, and Mason haven’t set foot on the Merle family property since the summer they were sixteen. They tried for years to put their history behind them, to forget the mystery of the girl who vanished so long ago. But a powerful force from their past is still at play. This time, there’s no hiding from it.

My Take:

This is part four of a four part series, and it’s definitely an epic conclusion. This twisted story does a fantastic job of balancing supernatural and psychological suspense with a good old fashioned haunted house story. I remained riveted to the story throughout my listen, and I’ll be looking for more by Lisa Unger.

Matthew, Claire, Ian, and Mason are all well-developed characters, and I found myself rooting for each of them at one point or another and suspecting them for murder at another point. Each of them bring their own type of darkness to the story while still being a likeable character.

If you need something to get you into the Halloween spirit, this is it.
