"An homage to Agatha Christie, Henry's locked-room mystery is tautly plotted, with quick-moving nail-biting chapters, relatable characters, and a deftly wrought setting that paradoxically manages to feel both claustrophobic and sprawling .... An atmospheric and entertaining thriller perfect for snowy night chills."--Kirkus Reviews
"A white-knuckle, claustrophobic, locked-room tour de force, Two Truths and a Lie is a worthy successor to Agatha Christie."--Gretchen McNeil, author of Ten and #murdertrending
"Henry successfully incorporates elements of romance into a snowed-inn mystery with Agatha Christie roots."--Publishers Weekly
"Henry returns with another thriller that will keep readers on the edges of their seats with mystery and romance, plus various theater references that give the novel a unique feel. Multiple twists and turns will keep readers guessing until the very end. An engrossing read."--Booklist
"Told with nods to Agatha Christie and in eerie detail, this ­thriller is sure to delight fans of mystery, suspense, and a little horror.... A grisly, fast-paced, suspenseful tale of a murder and mystery that is great for fans of noir thrillers who do not mind a little gore."--School Library Journal
"April Henry is a prolific author who, in my opinion, consistently writes engaging and authentically teen YA books that remind me of those 90s and 2000s paperback series, and this is the highest compliment I can give her as an author. Just as adults still love to read Harlequin romances, I believe that a lot is being lost in teen fiction and in our libraries by moving away from those quick, fun - and easy to carry because they are paperback - series that you can consistently count on for some great escapist reading that horrifies, delights, and engages. April Henry excels at this...A thing that I appreciate with April Henry is how authentically teen her protagonists feel and sound on a consistent basis. I have never walked away from an April Henry book thinking those characters were adults that they just labelled as 17 to market them as YA. And did I mention they are fun and engaging reads?!"'s Teen Librarian Toolbox
