Lillian Linden is a liar. On the surface, she looks like a brave survivor of a plane crash. But she's been lying to her family, her friends, and the whole world since rescue helicopters scooped her and her fellow survivor, Dave Hall, off a deserted island in the South Pacific. Missing for almost two years, the castaways are thrust into the spotlight after their rescue, becoming media darlings overnight. But they can't tell the real story--so they lie.
The public is fascinated by the castaways' saga, but Lillian and Dave must return to their lives and their spouses. Genevieve Randall--a hard-nosed journalist and host of a news program--isn't buying it. She suspects Lillian's and Dave's explanations about the other crash survivors aren't true. And now, Genevieve's determined to get the real story, no matter how many lives it destroys.
In this intriguing tale of survival, secrets, and redemption, two everyday people thrown together by tragedy must finally face the truth…even if it tears them apart.

The suspense didn't exactly kill me
I didn't enjoy the story at all, I guessed the big secret by the end of the first hour. I like foreshadowing as a literary device but it just didn't work here. I had no sympathy with any of the main characters. I found myself wishing that the journalist would rat them out on live TV just to add a bit of excitement. The narration was fine, just a shame about the material.
I've just downloaded Sleep Tight by Rachel Abbott
I suppose the plane crash and the days in the lifeboat, quite vivid descriptions
Some nice characterisation and setting descriptions of the island, making for a nice contrast with their respective lives back home.
