This book… wow. I have been waiting to read One of Us Is Lying for quite a long time. I think I first saw it in a Penguin First to Read drawing, and didn’t end up getting a galley.

Sea and Sand by Alex Lidell

I love Alex Lidell’s TIDES series, so as soon as I got an email saying book 3 was available, you know I one-clicked that and started reading.
