Your Beautiful Lies by Louise Douglas
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Set during the 1984 Yorkshire pit strike we are following Annie, married to the chief of police. Her father is a miner, her mother is very critical of her and her first love, Tom, is about to be released from prison having served a sentence for a crime he has always claimed he is innocent of. The story moves quickly with well-drawn, credible characters. Through two murders, family accusations, bitter misunderstandings and tragic consequences, it’s compulsive, easy reading with a good sense of period and location.

If you like Louise Douglas you might also like to read books by Brooke Morgan, Cecelia Ahern and Nicholas Sparks.

Synopsis

Your Beautiful Lies by Louise Douglas

Annie Howarth is living a restless life in a restless town. The mining strikes mean tensions are already running high, but when a murdered girl is found on the moors the community's anxiety levels are pushed to breaking point. Married to the Chief of Police, Annie should feel safe - William can be secretive, but surely whatever he's hiding is for her own good. But Annie is keeping her own secrets. Ten years ago the man she loved was ripped from her life in a scandal that still haunts the both of them, and his return has led her to put everything she has at risk...An atmospheric and suspenseful novel you'll find impossible to put down, from the talented Richard & Judy bestseller.
