Summary

Maya and Rebecca Ward are both accomplished physicians, but that's where the sisters' similarities end. As teenagers, they witnessed their parents' murder, but it was Rebecca who saved Maya from becoming another of the gunman's victims. The tragedy left Maya cautious and timid, settling for a sedate medical practice with her husband, Adam, while Rebecca became the risk taker.
After a devastating hurricane hits the coast of North Carolina, Rebecca and Adam urge Maya to join them in the relief effort. To please her husband, Maya finally agrees. She loses herself in the care and transport of victims, but when her helicopter crashes into raging floodwaters, there appears to be no survivors.
Forced to accept that Maya is gone, Rebecca and Adam turn to one another - first for comfort, then in passion - unaware that, miles from civilization, Maya is injured and trapped with strangers she's not certain she can trust.

A good listen

Not my favourite Diane Chamberlain book but still a good listen. Story was a little predictable though.

Very Slow Pace

Most of the book consists of the two sisters moaning about not revealing their guilty secrets to each other. The story is quite predictable until at least 90% or so, to the point where the reader gets anxious just to get it over with. There are a couple twists and surprises at the end, but they are essentially revealed as an aside, like 'oh, now that has happened so things are different '. The basic story concept had a lot of potential, but in my opinion, the author did not make the best use of it to keep the reader engaged.

Sibling rivalry, love, lust, loss, & heartache

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely! This was a great story line with a little something of every emotion for everyone.

What other book might you compare The Lies We Told to and why?

This had a little feel of Nicholas Spark's stories, in my opinion, except that the love story was more of a secondary focus while the friendship & survival events held the forefront.

What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

I loved her entire performance. I can't think of anyone else who could have done a better job!

Any additional comments?

Diane Chamberlain is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. This book contained a little sample of every feeling imaginable from love, loss, lust, heartbreak, starting anew, sibling rivalry to murder. The one idea that stuck with me is the thought that we should make our lives in the sand instead of concrete so that anytime we decide to change them, it is easily possible.This book was absolutely enamoring from the storyline to the writing technique. The plot kept me hooked from the very first page and while reading you will be fervently gritting your teeth to see how everything plays out
