"Bowen . . . takes a confident step into the thriller genre with this engaging debut, which combines a fast pace and an intriguing plot with pointed commentary on the way useful technology can easily create a dangerous privacy nightmare. . . . the novel propels readers swiftly through the story, and Bowen never gets too bogged down in technical details. She adds just enough love and longing into the mix to please her romance-minded fans without scaring off the hardcore thriller addicts. . . . An engaging and fast-paced thriller about the abuse of technology." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Buckle up! The Five Year Lie is a twisty, roller-coaster tale of love and suspicion, revenge and murder.

"A five-year-old mystery and the best kind of love story are at the core of Sarina Bowen's twisty new thriller The Five Year Lie, which explores one woman's race toward the truth after receiving a text from her deceased ex. But this is more than just a twisty thriller. The Five Year Lie explores themes of loyalty and family, motherhood, and the tragedy of having to say goodbye too soon. I devoured this book in one day, and I guarantee you will too." -- Julie Clark, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Flight and The Lies I Tell

"An expertly woven story of love, revenge, and murder. In a world where so many books feel so similar - this was a refreshingly unique read and an addictive blend of love and mystery that I couldn't put down. This is storytelling at its finest and I can't recommend this book enough." -- AR Torre, New York Times bestselling author of Every Last Secret
