The Lies He Told Me

This is Kathleen’s first domestic thriller and is still a work-in-progress.

The Lies He Told Me is a 96,000-word dual-POV adult domestic suspense comparable to You meets Gaslight. It will appeal to fans of B.A. Paris and Chevy Stevens. Please note CW: pregnancy, birth, domestic abuse/violence, explicit language.


{YOU x PRETTY LITTLE WIFE} 36yo Megan never follows her instincts, and now she’s stuck in a marriage to a sociopath. He cheats, lies & makes her look crazy. But when he needs her help evading attempted murder charges, she could take the kids & run… or guarantee their saftey by ensuring he gets charged with murder instead.

Mood board:

Book Blurb:

When Megan is swept into the arms of charming police officer Matthew, she’s convinced she’ll never be hurt again, especially when he accepts their unexpected pregnancy. Unfortunately for Megan, money-hungry Matthew has ulterior motives. With his lofty inheritance tied to marriage, Matthew reluctantly proposes. She thinks her life is finally coming together. After several years of deceit, he is bored with Megan, finds a new muse, and detonates their union—along with Megan’s hope of happily ever after.

Megan tries to pick up the pieces and rebuild her life, but Matthew uses the children as pawns to maintain control over her. His gaslighting games reach a new level and she has a nervous breakdown. But when Matthew is charged with the attempted murder of his new girlfriend, Megan has a chance to ensure he’s locked up for good. She struggles with what moral lines she’s willing to cross to finally be free of his manipulation and control—but getting caught could lead to the exact opposite—and the cost could be deadly.
