Book Review: Lying in Wait


Lying in Wait

Lying in Wait by Liz Nugent ★★★☆☆

Published: 2015

Format: Paperback

Pages: 304

Genre: Mystery, Family Drama

The last people who expect to be meeting with a drug-addicted prostitute are a respected judge and his reclusive wife. And they certainly don’t plan to kill her and bury her in their exquisite suburban garden.

While this is pitched as a thriller, it leans much more towards a sort of family drama. The murder takes place right at the beginning and the focus is on the effect this has on the family and how their lives go on afterwards.

I did enjoy how the story panned out, and how the twists and turns developed. The great ending was a saving grace of the book, helping it get 3 stars. Without it it would have been less.

Unfortunately, I just wasn’t sucked into the novel. I was just expecting a bit more of a tense story. There’s also a lot of fat shaming in this. If you have any body issues be careful with this, I found it difficult to read at times.
