The Day the Lies Began by Kylie Kaden

“It seemed simple at first – folding one lie over the next. She had become expert at feathering over the cracks to ensure her life appeared the same. But inside, it didn't feel fixed.”

It happened the day of the Moon Festival. It could have been left behind, they all could have moved on with their lives. But secrets have a habit of rising to the surface, especially in small towns.

Two couples, four ironclad friendships, the perfect coastal holiday town. With salt-stung houses perched like lifeguards overlooking the shore, Lago Point is the scene of postcards, not crime scenes. Wife and mother Abbi, town cop Blake, schoolteacher Hannah and local doctor Will are caught in their own tangled webs of deceit.

When the truth washes in to their beachside community, so do the judgements: victim, or vigilante, who will forgive, who will betray? Not all relationships survive. Nor do all residents.

About the Author

Kylie Kaden knew writing was in her blood from a young age. Raised in Queensland, she would sneak into her brother’s Commodore 64 to invent stories as a child. Now Kylie writes as a columnist for My Child Magazine and holds an honours degree in psychology.

She followed up her debut novel, Losing Kate (2014) with a second critically acclaimed novel, Missing You (2015). The Day the Lies Began marks a reinvention for Kylie. Drawing from her degree and inspired by the Queensland coastline, she has written a domestic noir-thriller with a distinctly Australian flavour that explores our favourite theme: how good people do bad things.

She lives in Brisbane with her husband and three sons.
