Review: The Comfort of Lies by Randy Susan Meyers

The Comfort of Lies

“Happiness at someone else’s expense came at a price. Tia had imagined judgment from the first kiss that she and Nathan shared. All year, she’d waited to be punished for being in love, and in truth, she believed that whatever consequences came her way would be deserved.” 

Five years ago, Tia fell into obsessive love with a man she could never have. Married, and the father of two boys, Nathan was unavailable in every way. When she became pregnant, he disappeared, and she gave up her baby for adoption.

Five years ago, Caroline, a dedicated pathologist, reluctantly adopted a baby to please her husband. She prayed her misgivings would disappear; instead, she’s questioning whether she’s cut out for the role of wife and mother.

Five years ago, Juliette considered her life ideal: she had a solid marriage, two beautiful young sons, and a thriving business. Then she discovered Nathan’s affair. He promised he’d never stray again, and she trusted him.

But when Juliette intercepts a letter to her husband from Tia that contains pictures of a child with a deep resemblance to her husband, her world crumbles once more. How could Nathan deny his daughter? And if he’s kept this a secret from her, what else is he hiding? Desperate for the truth, Juliette goes in search of the little girl. And before long, the three women and Nathan are on a collision course with consequences that none of them could have predicted.

Riveting and arresting, The Comfort of Lies explores the collateral damage of infidelity and the dark, private struggles many of us experience but rarely reveal.

I really LOVED this book.  It was such a beautifully woven story about three women whose paths cross due to one a man's adulterous act.  After the introductions you are completed you are pulled into each of the woman's life's and although all of the women falter, are flawed and are all struggling in their own can relate to them, you feel for them and you root for them.  This story is not a predictable one and keeps you turning pages throughout the entire book.  If you want a read that gets into you, The Comfort of Lies is for you.  I rate it 4.5 stars.   


  1. I'm going to add this to my TBR pile now. I love interwoven tales, but don't see them as much as I did during the 1980s. Thx for the review.
