Title: Here We Lie
Author: Paula Treick DeBoard
Published: January 2018, Park Row Books
Format: Paperback, 368 pages

Summary: 
A riveting novel about how the past never stays in the past, from the critically acclaimed author of The Drowning Girls and The Mourning Hours .

Megan Mazeros and Lauren Mabrey are complete opposites on paper. Megan is a girl from a modest Midwest background, and Lauren is the daughter of a senator from an esteemed New England family. But in 1999, Megan and Lauren become college roommates and, as two young women struggling to find their place on campus, they forge a strong, albeit unlikely, friendship. The two quickly become inseparable, sharing clothes, advice and their most intimate secrets.

The summer before their senior year, Megan joins Lauren and her family on their private island off the coast of Maine. The weeks go by, filled with fun and relaxation, until late one night at the end of the vacation, something unspeakable happens, searing through the framework of the girls' friendship and tearing them apart. Many years later, in the midst of a political scandal, Megan finally comes forward about what happened that fateful night, revealing a horrible truth about Lauren's family and threatening to expose their long-buried secrets.

In this captivating and moving novel of domestic suspense, Paula Treick DeBoard explores the power of friendship and secrets and shows how betrayal can lead to disastrous, and deadly, consequences.



Early Praise:

"DeBoard does a wonderful job creating her realistic and flawed characters, giving even secondary characters a rich backstory and a haunting sense of intrigue. This story particularly resonates now, in the throes of the #MeToo movement." --Booklist

"A wrenching tale of broken friendship and shattered dreams." --Kirkus Reviews

"With this story of two very different young women, DeBoard portrays the lies that people tell to find acceptance and the terrible acts that powerful people casually commit." --Publishers Weekly 

"Nuanced and complex... At its heart, Here We Lie examines the seemingly unbreakable bonds of both friendship and family, and the lengths one will go to take care of their own. Compulsively readable!" --Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing Year and The Blackbird Season

"From her riveting first chapter, DeBoard casts a line back in time and reels an unlikely college friendship ever closer to the novel's inevitable conclusions. An absorbing exploration of how we attain personal power and the consequences of wielding it." --Kathryn Craft, award-winning author of The Far End of Happy and The Art of Falling

"... a mesmerizing tale of two former best friends and one shocking secret. Suspenseful and evocative, with pitch-perfect prose and pacing, Here We Lie is a story that resonates long after the last word. An engrossing read." --Kimberly Belle, bestselling author of The Marriage Lie

"Here We Lie takes you on a remarkable journey of two girls who learn, together and alone, to decide who they will ultimately be--it is at once observant, devastating, and thoroughly satisfying." --Emily Carpenter, author of The Weight of Lies and Burying the Honeysuckle Girls
