Unsettling, thought-provoking, and absolutely riveting. He's not even 30, yet Andy is a widower, he has a young son and a loving support network around him. When Andy meets Anna, he can’t believe that he will get a second chance at love and rushes into marriage. However he finds lies and secrets can turn inside out, trip up the unwary, cause mayhem, and change lives. The prologue sent a wave of shock scudding through me, it twisted my thoughts and set my mind on high alert. Michael J. Malone steps into an uncomfortable and distressing subject and makes it relatable, accessible, real. I felt I could reach out and touch the characters, as though they could be someone I knew, someone I cared about. Encouraging supposition to flip on its head and allowing suspicion to creep in and linger, ‘A Suitable Lie’ is a challenging and clever read. ~ Liz Robinson

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
A Suitable Lie by Michael J. Malone
Andy Boyd thinks he is the luckiest man alive. Widowed with a young child, after his wife dies in childbirth, he is certain that he will never again experience true love. Then he meets Anna. Feisty, fun and beautiful, she's his perfect match ...and she loves his son like he is her own. When Andy ends up in the hospital on his wedding night, he receives his first clue that Anna is not all that she seems. Desperate for that happy-ever-after, he ignores it. A dangerous mistake that could cost him everything. A brave, deeply moving, page-turning psychological thriller, A Suitable Lie marks a stunning departure for one of Scotland's finest crime writers, exploring the lengths people will go to hide their deepest secrets, even if it kills them...
'Michael Malone has twisted the marriage thriller into a new and troubling shape, creating a story that, with its bristling unease and subtle acts of sadism, feels all too real. This is domestic noir at its very darkest’ Eva Dolan
‘Emotionally intelligent and engaging’ Caro Ramsay
‘A dark and unnerving psychological thriller that draws you deep into the lives of the characters and refuses to let go’ Caroline Mitchell
‘A chilling tale of the unexpected that journeys right into the dark heart of domesticity’ Marnie Riches
'A story that I won't forget in a hurry. Malone is a massive talent ... get on board now…’ Luca Veste
