Beautiful Lies by Lisa Unger Book Summary

If Ridley Jones had slept ten minutes later or had taken the subway instead of waiting for a cab, she would still be living the beautiful lie she used to call her life. She would still be the privileged daughter of a doting father and a loving mother. Her life would still be perfect—with only the tiny cracks of an angry junkie for a brother and a charming drunk with shady underworld connections for an uncle to mar the otherwise flawless whole.

But that’s not what happened. Instead, those inconsequential decisions lead her to perform a good deed that puts her in the right place at the right time to unleash a chain of events that brings a mysterious package to her door—a package which informs her that her entire world is a lie.

Suddenly forced to question everything she knows about herself and her family, Ridley wanders into dark territory she never knew existed, where everyone in her life seems like a stranger. She has no idea who’s on her side and who has something to hide—even, and maybe especially, her new lover, Jake, who appears to have secrets of his own.

Sexy and fast-paced, Beautiful Lies is a true literary thriller with one of the freshest voices and heroines to arrive in years. Lisa Unger takes us on a breathtaking ride in which every choice Ridley makes creates a whirlwind of consequences that are impossible to imagine . . . .

Beautiful Lies (Lisa Unger) Book Reviews

Beautiful LiesA must read! I was enthralled with this book. Thank you Lisa Unger!.Score: 5/5

Great StoryReally enjoyed this story about our choices in life and the consequences. This may hit home for many of us..Score: 5/5

Beautiful LiesAlthough I immensely enjoyed this book, I am not giving it the highest rating for two reasons: 1. Parts of the book seemed too incredible. 2. The protagonist’s moods and reactions seemed inconsistent at times, which the author attempted to cover with statements like, “Didn’t I just say....” For the most part, the protagonist seemed credible and likable. Her descriptions of NYC—the smells, the characters, the street scenes—were perfect. I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys mysterious adventures! Ray Restaino.Score: 4/5

UghSlow, dull, rambling, pointless. Forced myself to finish though I'd stopped caring..Score: 1/5

Great potential, fell just short.There are a few HUGE plot holes and inconsistencies that I couldn't get past. Had potentially to be incredibly fascinating, but fell just short. But it is good/interesting. Has a lot of unnecessary details/commentary;Ridley tends to repeat herself a lot and it's unnecessary.Score: 3/5

Beautiful liesWas very surprised by the insightful writings of this author. Once I got started I was hooked and couldn't put it down till the end..Score: 5/5

Beautiful Lies❤I was at the local library & the cover of the book "Beautiful Lies". Caught me I read some & I'm still reading but so far this book is so amazing!.Score: 5/5

Weak story and descriptive verbosnessAs above.Score: 3/5

This authors best bookIt's been a while since I read beautiful lies but I still recall its story and that it is an excellent book. Very hard to put down. A must read..Score: 5/5

Hmm...Although I found the book interesting, an error kept me from loving it. Spoiler alert: jake moved in before the inciting incident with the small boy and yet he says he moved in because of the article written about her after the incident. Can't be both ways. Kept waiting on Ridley to call him out on it. She didn't. Couldn't get passed this mistake. Bothered me to no end..Score: 3/5
