Where does your truth lie? In the hands of a stranger, or in the hearts of the people closest to you? Amanda must find out as she tries to unlock her mysterious past in The Truth Lie in the Dark.
What would you do if everything you thought you knew was a lie? That everyone you loved and trusted had kept a life changing secret from you? These are some of the questions Amanda Martineau is faced with in The Truth Lies in the Dark.
When she was a young child she survived a plane crash that killed her parents and left her with no memory of her life before it. Her grandparents moved her across the country to start a new life, but she was always haunted by the nightmares of an unknown girl. Then her grandfather leaves her an unfinished letter that hints she is not who she thinks. In her quest to find out the truth about her past, she exposes a dark secret that threatens to destroy everything she knows; even her loving marriage to Nick. As more of the secret is revealed she doesn't know who she can trust. Everything depends on her answering the most important question. Who is there to help her, and who is there to make sure the truth remains...in the dark?

Amanda Martineau was raised by her grandparents after she was orphaned by a plane crash. She is devastated when death and Alzheimer's tear her grandparents from her. Recurring nightmares keep her dependent on her husband, Nick. Although Nick is a loving husband, he pushes her fears and questions aside, leaving her even more dependent on him.
A half-finished letter from her grandfather, begging her to forgive him, leaves Amanda confused and pushes her into a quest to find out the real story of her life.
A business trip to California gives Amanda the freedom she needs to research the plane crash that killed her parents, but more questions intrude. Uncharacteristically, Amanda takes steps that lead her away from Nick and into a situation that threatens her life. A completely new world opens up when Amanda discovers her real name and her birth family. Lies that clouded her life are revealed and Amanda must save herself and Nick if they are to have a future together.
The truth truly lies in the dark in Callender's well-written page-turner, guaranteed to keep the reader on the edge of the seat and guessing to the last page. Well done, Ms Callender, more books please.

I thought it was a great read, really kept me turning the pages, well written, good character development and nice twist at the end. Overall.... yes, I would recommend the book especially for a weekend out of town/vacation or beach read.
