Book Review / See How They Lie by Sue Wallman

All’s not well at the Hummingbird Creek wellness resort. No one can see in. No one can get out…
New from the talented author who brought you Lying About Last Summer: a psycho-chiller to wake up your darkest phobias. If you got to live in a luxury hotel with world-class cuisine, a state-of-the-art sports centre and the latest spa treatments, would you say ‘yes please’? 

Well, that’s kind of what Hummingbird Creek is like. No wonder Mae feels lucky to be there. It’s meant as a rich-kid’s sanatorium, but she isn’t sick. Her dad is the top psychiatrist there. But one day Mae breaks a rule. NOT a good idea. This place is all about rules – and breaking them can hurt you…

What I liked about this story...  In this story we follow the main character Mae who lives at Hummingbird Creek, which is a 'wellness report'.  Where parents send their troubled kids to get better.  There is a lot more to this wellness report then meets the eye.  It was the twists and turns in this story that won it over for me.  Just when I thought something had happened and someone was responsible that may have not been the case.  I was truly surprised by the ending, something I definitely was not expecting!   I also found this book be very creepy which was excellent considering I read this in the evenings!  This is very much a who's who type of book.   I was always guessing who was the 'baddies' and who were the 'goodies', sometimes guessing right and sometimes guessing wrong. 

In summary...   A very intriguing thriller that certainly has a few twists and turns.  I would highly recommend this book but it is definitely best to go into this book not knowing a great deal more than the book synopsis.
