Lies You Wanted to Hear/James Whitfield Thomson/404 pgs.
Lucy and Matt meet on a blind date. Lucy is from a dysfunctional, yet wealthy family: her mother is alcoholic, and her father is unfaithful. Matt has been raised by his mother, a single parent, and is a police officer. Matt falls for Lucy--head over heels-- and they eventually marry and have children. It's when Lucy's past catches up with her in the form of ex-boyfriend, Griffin, that the marriage totally unravels. The book is told in alternating chapters in Lucy's and Matt's voices. It's like watching a train wreck--you want to turn away, but you just have to see how it ends! Recommended!
