Genre: Psychological Thriller

Nina can never forgive Maggie for what she did. And she can never let her leave.

They say every house has its secrets, and the house that Maggie and Nina have shared for so long is no different. Except that these secrets are not buried in the past.

Every other night, Maggie and Nina have dinner together. When they are finished, Nina helps Maggie back to her room in the attic, and into the heavy chain that keeps her there. Because Maggie has done things to Nina that can’t ever be forgiven, and now she is paying the price.

But there are many things about the past that Nina doesn’t know, and Maggie is going to keep it that way—even if it kills her.

Because in this house, the truth is more dangerous than lies.

My Review:

TOOT TOOT!  All aboard the crazy train!  What I love about Marrs is how each of his books seem a little bit different from One to The Passengers and now What Lies Between Us, which took me back to the crazy ass characters feels from The Good Samaritan.  Let crazy be crazy and I'll happily board that train, throw my hands up and keep that seatbelt OFF because safety third when you're on an insane ride!

Obviously I had a great time with this book.  My fifth book by Marrs and my fifth five star review for him.  Now, for avid thriller readers, there's not going to be an entirety of a story line that we're not used to.  HOWEVER, I think the ride on this one was thrilling, made my butt pucker at times and was such a quick binge that I just devoured it.

Maggie and Nina - who is crazy and who isn't?  Or are they both and geeeeeeeeeeezuz already, I loathed them both but had SUCH a great time reading about them.  From the past to the present, from the crazy to the insane.  While the reveals were nothing that I didn't really see coming, every time one presented itself, there were still more questions and more layers to uncover.  I found myself nodding and going ok.. yep... what's next.. give it to me!  And for me, this was the book I needed right now and I appreciated that ending.  Hell to the yes.
