Daisy and Simon’s marriage is great, isn’t it?

After years together, the arrival of longed-for daughter Millie sealed everything in place. A happy little family of three.

And so what if Simon drinks a bit too much sometimes – Daisy’s used to it, she knows he’s letting off steam. Until one night at a party, things spiral horribly out of control. And that happy little family of three will never be the same again.

In Lies Lies Lies Sunday Times bestseller Adele Parks explores the darkest corners of a relationship in freefall in a mesmerising tale of marriage and secrets.

Praise for Lies Lies Lies:

‘Gripping, moving and elegantly written’ Marian Keyes

‘Brilliant, moving and deeply satisfying, Parks is the queen of the domestic dark side’ Veronica Henry

‘Completely addictive… superbly drawn. Fabulous’  Ruth Jones

‘An utterly gripping, dark, addictive read, with characters so real, and an emotional punch so hard it left me a little winded. A brilliant page-turner!’ Alice Feeney

‘Compelling and suspenseful’ Catherine Isaac

‘I devoured Lies, Lies, Lies… so engaging, well written. It is one of those rare books that earn the title, unputdownable’ Sally Hepworth

‘Brilliantly twisty and makes for a thrilling, unputdownable read but is also so insightful about human nature: her characters, with all their flaws and secrets, are utterly real. A triumph’ Lucy Foley

‘The gripping, visceral portrait of the disintegration of a marriage takes the “didn’t-see-that-coming” plot twist to new heights ****’ Heat

‘A gripping and unpredictable read hiding some deliciously dark secrets and lies’ OK

‘A sharply crafted tale … the ultimate read for fans of domestic noir’ Woman’s Weekly

‘I’m not going to lie! Adele Parks takes you straight into the heart of her characters. Her twists about human nature form the icing on the cake’ Jane Corry

‘BOOM! What a book! Layers and layers of intrigue and characters I want to spend a lifetime with. Loved it’ Suzy K Quinn

 

img_2422I’ve always dreamed of being a writer and when my first novel – Playing Away – was published the Evening Standard identified me as one of London’s ‘Twenty Faces to Watch’, which was very nice of them!

I like to keep busy and I’ve published 19 novels, and I’m thrilled to say that they’ve all hit the bestseller lists. I’ve sold over 3.5 million books in the UK alone and I’ve been translated into 26 different languages. I have written 17 contemporary novels and 2 historical ones, Spare Brides and If You Go Away, which are set during and after WW1. My latest novels, Lies Lies Lies, I Invited Her In, The Image of You and The Stranger in My Home are twisty, domestic noirs. I like to scrutinize our concepts of family, our theories on love, parenting and fidelity.

I passionately believe that reading is a basic right. I’m a proud Ambassador of The National Literacy Trust and a The Reading Agency, charities that are devoted to encouraging emerging adult readers and children who are becoming passionate about books.

During my career, I’ve lived in Italy, Botswana and London. Now I live happily in Surrey with my husband, teenage son and cat.

WHAT DID I THINK?

I loved this and it’s not my first Adele Parks books and certainly won’t be the last. Adele really is a remarkable author that churns them out often. Each one different but they all keep you turning those pages. An idealistic family that hides the truth, very common but this goes that bit more. I loved it.
