This is the first time I have read a book by Elaine May and it certainly won't be the last. I'm already chomping at the bit for book 2!

This is a horrible story. Not horrible as in a crap book, but horrible as in the subject matter.

If you want a boo hiss villain, you are subjected to not one but two of them in this book. Jack and John are despicable creatures. The lies they have told, their business dealings, what they have subjected Isla to for years and the rest of their families; their murderous souls are beyond redemption.

Isla has been beaten, abused, humiliated and treated worse than a dog, yet she still sees it in her heart to want to protect Josh. And Josh....he wants to right the wrongs. He wants his girl.

I enjoyed the basics of the story. The writing style was very straight to the point with no padded frills and I liked that. The chapters were very short, as were the sentences.

My only problem with this book was the time frame. At one point I thought she had been missing for 4 years and I thought the chances of Josh not recognising her after such a short space of time were far fetched. But then I realised it was actually 10 years which seemed more reasonable. But then I got to thinking that Isla was 12 when they parted and Josh was a few years older than her....and they were both in love with each other.....do you see where I'm going with this!!

Anyway, it was an enjoyable, if not emotional read and well deserving of the 4 stars I'm giving it. I would have given 5 but the timescale was confusing and also the ending was abrupt. Yes I realise the author wanted to leave us on the cliff, but she didn't just leave us near the edge, she left us free falling into the abyss

Reading Lies and Truth was at times, quite disturbing especially the amount of things Isla goes through at the hands of her Uncle and his son. She is kept like a prisoner and her Uncle's son's plaything when he wants her.

Isla has always been accepted into the Bryant family when she was little and she always loved and felt loved. She was really close to Joshua, they were like best friends even though she was seven years younger than him. A Tragic car accident kills Isla's parents and Joshua's grandfather. Isla was in the car too but escapes and gets taken away. Years later and Isla has been kept in a basement by her Uncle and his son. She feels worthless and thinks she deserves what she gets. Joshua believes that Isla is dead but when Isla gains a bit of freedom and starts working at the Bryant family business, she finally see Joshua again. He was and still is the love of her life. He doesn't recognizes her and she has to keep it that way.

It is a very twisted story and sometimes i felt it lacked passion and emotional value to it. I enjoyed the overall story of it but i did feel it was a bit too short and not with a very good ending either. There is a second book with Joshua and Isla story continuing so i am interested to see how the story pans out.

I really tried to like this book but I just couldn't get past how it was written and had to stop after a few chapters because it was just driving me mad. I couldn't feel for the main character at all which is a shame as I can see from the other reviews that I may have been missing something : (

I couldn't put this one down, it's gripping right from the start. Josh is a great hero to fall in love with, but it's Isla who the reader connects with. Hers is a compelling story of someone who has little choice and noone to turn to. A great debut from a new author that left me desperate for the next one!

The book is about a family who have been destroyed. They have been conned by their own and many of the family members have been ‘removed’ from the picture. They are left with one uncle and son who are doing some dodgy dealing while running the family business and have a play thing, their own flesh and blood.

Isla is the main character towards the beginning of the book but Joshua features a lot later on. Isla is so strong and has been through so much, I cant believe she gets out of bed in the morning. Joshua is her knight in shining armour and although it takes him a while to realise it, he knows he has found the love of his life. Joshua appears back from a few years travelling with the business to find a new member of staff in the office, she captures him from the second she lays eyes on him and he is sure he has seen her before, but surely it cant be who he thinks, she is dead…

The book is very dramatic and draws you in from the go, you want to investigate with them and help them find the answers they need. Mary is absolutely fantastic, she knows something is going on and is a great support to both Joshua and Isla helping them find the information they need.

The end of the book is a great cliff hanger, I couldn't wait to start the next one!

To be honest I'm not sure where I stand on this book. I hated that it was written in the third person and some of the story line was so unrealistic I found it hard to keep going in parts and almost didn't finish. Having said l the negatives the actual story line itself was excellent and I loved joshie and Isla and will definately read book 2
