Just know I always give very honest reviews. I did receive this at a discount to give an informative review but they ask us to always give honest reviews.
To be fair, the mystery element was good. I like to think that I'm pretty good at 'picking the killer,' but the ending took me by surprise. Perhaps this was because there were a lot (a lot) of other suspects and a few red herrings thrown in as well. It was interesting to watch the main character channelling Nancy Drew, however, I found her methods a little underwhelming at times.
The relationships in Masquerade of Lies were pretty shallow, and I think the conversation between the characters contributed to this. Perhaps this is a reflection of how these kids interacted and behaved, but I found the way Hanna interacted with some of her classmates (and her mum) bordering on rude at times. I found the book unappealing because of the shallow characters (omg, Louis Vuitton, et al), but this could just be because I'm not into that kind of thing at all.
Hanna also tucks her hair behind her ears. A lot. I think this is, more than anything, a nervous trait, but it felt a little repetitive as the novel progressed.
Overall, I think this will appeal to its target audience (which I am not). The mystery element was good, and there were a few twists and turns and 'ah hah' moments. While the characters annoyed me (grumpy oldish lady), I think they're a perfect reflection of 'it girls'.
I received this book for free in exchange for an HONEST review.
