    One negative about this particular novel: it is the author's debut, which means I can't grab all her other work for immediate reading. It is also difficult to review the book without spoilers, so I will just say this: Coble weaves the story between past and present seamlessly, givi...

    Friends and Other Liars is nothing short of spectacular! I couldn't get enough of this story and its characters. I simultaneously wanted to continue devouring it while wanting to savor it at the same time. From the moment I learned Danny had kept their secrets and now wanted them to di...

    3.5 star read. I liked this book. I think I would have liked it more if we had had alternating perspectives (and more than the couple of times Steph or Allie narrate a chapter) - I think it would have helped build a little tension, and also would have tied in the story a little bett...

    This is a case of ?it?s not you, it?s me?. I went into this thinking it was something else. I was expecting something a little more dark and mysterious but I was about 40% into it and it was reading more like a contemporary love story. At that point I was only getting to know R...

    This may well be Kaela Coble's debut novel but I am certain it won't be her last. It gripped from Page 1 and continued until the last. Based on the life histories of a tight group of friends who believe they know each other inside and out, it soon becomes apparent that each one has d...

    I bought this book thinking it was a thriller, but it's actually a mystery novel with a lot of romance. And even though that was not what I was expecting, I still had a great time with this book! The story starts with Ruby going back to her hometown to attend one of her former frien...

    First I'd like to start with Kaela Coble can write and write very well at that. So why the 2 star rating? Because I expected something different than what this book was and that's on me, not the author. I expected a dark, juicy, twisted tale and this is NOT that book. This read very mu...

    I pretty much blew through Friends and Other Liars by Kaela Coble. This one gave me some PLL and Love Letter to Whiskey kind of vibes. The book is told in past and present with multiple POVs (????). So what?s it about? The crew! Ruby, Ally, Danny, Murphy and Emmett ar...
