Genre: Mystery Thriller
POV: First Person – Female
Emma Davis was an artist; she focus all her energy and time on her dark paintings. A traumatizing event at Camp Nightingale left her empty and with lots of guilt. Therefore; her paintings gave her freedom to express her feelings after so many years of guilt.
After fifteen years she was given a chance to return to the Camp where her nightmares began. However; Emma had a big secret that I totally didn’t see coming. After lots of thinking Emma decides to accept the offer and goes back to Nightinagle. Her life will change dramatically once again.
This story is told from Emma’s point of view, the author takes us back to the past and to the present times. The story has so many mysterious scenes and I found myself questioning everything and everyone. There were so many questions as the tension steadily increases through out the end. Everyone is a suspect and I found myself glued to each page until the very end.
Overall; I enjoyed this suspenseful story. It was well written and it kept me hooked from the very first page. This book would be appealing to readers who enjoy mystery thrillers.

📖#currentlyreading📖 #TheLastTimeILied by #RileySager 📚Blurb:📚 Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she–or anyone–saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips. Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings–massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends. Yet it's immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp's twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present. And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price. . . . . #currentlyreading #amreading #suspense #thriller #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #netgalley #penguinpublishing #instabooks #instagram #instagrammers #arc #hardcovers #ilikeitdark #twisted #pinguinrandomhouse
