Overview

Whispers and Lies by Joy Fielding

Terry Painter enjoys her quiet life in tranquil Delray, Florida, where the single, forty-year-old nurse lives alone in the house she inherited from her mother. When young, vibrant Alison Simms rents the cottage on her property, the two women strike up a fast friendship — and Terry is swept into a fantastic new life: dinners out, shopping, makeovers, even flirting with the handsome son of one of her elderly patients. But nothing about her newfound companion is as it appears, as Terry discovers when Alison's closely guarded past comes to light. Now Terry is locked into a race to reclaim her own life — before she opens the door any further to the stranger she thought she knew...

I read this in one day. I was actually getting annoyed with Terry throughout the first half of the book. I couldn't believe how naive she was acting. But wow, what an ending! I didn't see it coming. I love a book with a good twist.

I had given up on Joy after I read 'Lost'. I figured out what was going on early in the book, and it was a great disappointment. I decided to give her another chance when I read 'Mad River Road', which I found very weird and enjoyable. 'Whispers and Lies' was at my local library and I figured it might be worse than 'Lost, but took it home nevertheless. It was great! Glides you easily into a lonely middle age woman's world, and what can happen when life simply becomes too terrible to comprehend. I am usually pretty good at figuring these things out, but this ending was unexpected and terrifying. Loved it!

Terry, single nurse in her forties, rents out her cottage to a twenty something young gal, Allison. Allison introduces Terry to a whole new world of friends, dinners out, make overs and Terry cannot help but think Allison with her hidden past is up to something. This book is full of nervous paranoia and will have you wanting to put the book down thinking this is pretty typical storyline and you have it all fiqured out-read the last few chapters of the book-you cannot begin to guess what happens!!! Read thru the whole book-worth the time!

I've read almost all of Joy Fielding's books, and like The Deep End, this one made me gasp aloud when I got to the end. That's the measure of a great read for me, and Fielding doesn't disappoint. I admit to being all smug, thinking I'd figured it all out. But she got me again. Looking forward to her next one.

Unbelievable twist and turn of events. Lots of suspense. You think you know where it's heading, but you're in for a surprise!

I did not like her style of writing. I also became annoyed with the character - Terry. Yes it did have a very shocking ending but it was a disappointing one. I was not happy with this book. However, I am interested in reading her other books just to see if this is her usual style of writing.

i felt the movement of this story was: interesting to slow, slow to slow, slow to picking up, picking up to getting creepy, creepy to WHAT!??!?! just for that part of the story picking up towards the end, this may be worth your time to read if you have nothing else to do.

This is the first book I've ever read by this author, and I read it in 2 days because I just couldn't put it down. An easy read and full of suspense and interesting characters that could be seen in my ''mind's eye''.

The book was great right up until the end. I was waiting for a shocking surprise and boy did I get one. Definitely not one that I liked. Disappointed with the turn of the book.

THIS IS MY FIRST JOY FIELDING BOOK. IT WAS A LITTLE TOO LONG IN REACHING THE SURPRISES AT THE END. THIS IS A CHILLING MYSTERY BUT COULD BE TOO DARK FOR SOME READERS.

'First Time' was my first book by Joy Fielding. So i was really looking forward to this book. But to say the least, it was a big let down. It seems too drawn out, too stretched. It just doesn't grab you. If you want suspense, i'd much rather read something by Dean Koontz, maybe.

The book was clever, but weird, drawn out and the end was morbid.

I am a big fan of Joy Fielding and she is a fantastic writer, but with all due respect, I didn't particularly care for this one. It took too long to get to where it was going, and, ultimately, I didn't like where it went. I realize there were many red herrings I just didn't catch, and I found the ending a little too dark and disturbing.

The story started out so great, that i had a hard time putting the book down, then halfway thru the book I thought to myself, this story is getting annoying,' I am so disappointed.

I thought this book was terrible. I was so excited to read it because I had read her other books The First Time & Grand Avenue and I LOVED them!! Not what I expected. The ending was weird.

I loved this book. I definitely didn't see it coming. About time someone wrote some thing that really keeps you guessing. Enough of the ho-hum, yup he or she did it by Chapter 2 novels.

What a disappointment this book was. I have to admit when I first started to read it, I couldn't wait to see exactly who this Allison girl was and what she wanted with Terry. But towards the end, the twist that the story takes is just so shocking and it just left me wondering 'WHY?' I truly don't understand why the author decided to go the way she did story-wise. If you're a fan of the author then you may want to read it but I think it's a complete waste of time and I was angry that I even bothered reading it.

This book really shocked me as I didn't see the ending coming. Most books I can predict the ending but this one really threw me. Highly recommend this book.

It is like that train wreck you can't turn away from, yet you know continuing to experience it is of no use to you. I kept waiting for it to get better--I should not have finished it. Skip this one.
