    1 thought on “The Comfort of Lies”

    1. * Warning! I cussa lotat is all*I read this book in four hours, and I can think of a dozen things I could have done with my time, such as:*Get my wisdom teeth pulled*Cleaned out that closet*Done this pile of laundry that is threatening to eat me while I sleepIncase you couldn't tell by my list (⬆) I am not a fan of The Comfort of Lies.When I received this book for review I was excited to "clean my palate" and read something different. With that being said I am VERY picky when it comes to my co [...]

    2. This book made me wish I could magically climb into the pages so I could slap every female character in there for making the rest of us look bad.

    3. When Tia began an affair with Nathan she knew he was married with two young boys and she knew it was wrong. However, Nathan made her feel safe and cared for, something she had so rarely felt before. The well tended illusion of their love was shattered, however, when Tia became pregnant and Nathan told her in no uncertain terms that he would never leave his family to be with her. Devastated by the rejection, Tia decided to give her child up for adoption, picking a well to do couple to raise her d [...]

    4. What a downer. The Boston Globe review quoted on the cover says it's "metimes wickedly funny." What?! This was about three unhappy women doing stupid things to make their situations worse. I wanted to smack them all. Especially Tia. Like Cher said in Moonstruck: Snap out of it!

    5. anovelreview/The lives of three women intersect, because of one man. Nathan is married to Juliette and they have two boys and a beautiful life together. For reasons he can't explain he begins an affair with Tia, a young woman from the South side of Boston. Nathan has the best of two worlds until Tia tells him she is expecting a baby. Nathan tells her to take care of it and walks out of her life. He later confesses his affair to his wife.Tia trying to redeem herself from having an affair with a m [...]

    6. Once again, I am faced with very conflicting feelings about a book that a majority of people have liked but that I have found not to be as good as I expected. Guys, I am starting to feel like a freak here. What is wrong with me?!!If you look at the reviews, it seems like everyone and their mother has fallen in love with this novel, and yet . . . I am not that satisfied with it (as much as it pains me to admit this). I feel BAD writing this because it is a book that I received a free digital cop [...]

    7. One action, one reaction, one decision can change everythingTia wanted love and thought she had found it in Nathan. The joy of them sharing a life and the baby she found she was carrying would bring everyone happiness. Nathan already had happiness with a wife and children he built a future around. Tia was a distraction he no longer desired, so he walked away and the baby they created was being loved in another woman’s house.Caroline loved her daughter, Savannah but at times did not understand [...]

    8. Some novels tread lightly around the lives of the characters involved, and some skim around heartbreak to arrive at truth, but this book is not one of those. THE COMFORT OF LIES is an excellent and compelling peek into the troubled inner lives of three women. The story moves along swiftly, shifting from one perspective to another, creating women so real it's impossible to believe that they are not. With a fluid writing style, Meyers sweeps the reader into a full-color world centered around the c [...]

    9. From the publisher: “Happiness at someone else’s expense came at a price. Tia had imagined judgment from the first kiss that she and Nathan shared. All year, she’d waited to be punished for being in love, and in truth, she believed that whatever consequences came her way would be deserved.” Five years ago, Tia fell into obsessive love with a man she could never have. Married, and the father of two boys, Nathan was unavailable in every way. When she became pregnant, he disappeared, and sh [...]

    10. **First of I would like to thank Atria Books for giving me this copy, via Netgalley**I'm unsure how I felt when reading The Comfort of Lies, was I moved? Did I connect to the characters? Not really. I had certain expectations going into this, I thought when I sat down to read it that maybe I should move the tissue box a little closer, just in case. I didn't need them. I guess all the characters could make someone feel for them, but for most part any low times and sadness is due to their own acti [...]

    11. Tia was seeing a married man named Nathan. That is until Tia told him that she was pregnant with his child. Nathan told Tia to take care of the situation but that he was not leaving his family. Tia gives birth to a baby girl. She gives her up for adoption. Juliette is the wife of Nathan. She has a happy family with Nathan and her two boys. Everything is perfect. That is until Nathan breaks the news that he had an affair. Caroline and Peter adopt Tia’s baby and name her Savannah. Although to Ti [...]

    12. The Comfort of Lies is told from the perspectives of three different women. Tia had an affair with Nathan (a married man), got pregnant, and gave the baby up for adoption five years ago. Caroline and her husband adopted the girl, though Caroline is not sure that she is cut out for motherhood. Juliette is Nathan's wife; on discovery that Nathan had a child from his affair, she becomes obsessed with the girl.I felt very "meh" about this book. The characters are reasonably well developed, but are n [...]

    13. Randy Susan Meyers' THE COMFORT OF LIES will have you burning the midnight oil. It's an impossible-to-put-down kind of book. Five years ago Tia and Nathan had an affair that produced a baby. The problem is that Nathan was married and loved his wife Juliette. Tia believed she had found her soul mate and convinced herself that Nathan felt the same about her but he had no intention of leaving Juliette.Nathan confessed the affair to Juliette but never mentioned the pregnancy, assuming that Tia would [...]

    14. As the book jackets states, this is the story of three women whose lives intersect over a baby. It is definitely that with all the associated angst oozing out. While I was able to get through it all (I’m on vacation and have lots of time and few books), it is a quickly forgettable book with stereotypical and bland characters. The single women who becomes pregnant from her affair with a married man and then turns to drink and drugs to deal with the psychic aftermath of relinquishing her child. [...]

    15. In the midst of a sinus infection, combined with a large stack of papers to grade, I COULD NOT put this book downe various perspectives offered, along with the depth of character development, all gave the characters in this book, personalities that readers can definitely identify with addition, this is an ideal read for book clubs, since there are so many moments/decisions/situations to discusslatable characters allows readers to either identity thru themselves or others, their own personal reac [...]

    16. I'll save everyone the time and effort to read 325 pages--just read the blurb or the cover jacket, and that's about 300 of the pages right there. I kept waiting for the story to happen. As an aside, since I know nothing about New York neighborhoods I had no idea of the setting of any of the families. Meyers did so much research on two of the women's occupations (research of eye cancer and development a skin care line) but I was just skimming all those details. Way too much info that wasn't neces [...]

    17. I was lucky enough to read an advance copy of this book. I am a fan of Meyers's debut novel THE MURDERER"S DAUGHTERS so I had my hopes up for this one and it more than lived up to them. The first thing I love about Randy Susan Meyers's work is how un-prettied up her characters are. They aren't saints. They aren't Pollyannas. They are just people trying to get through their lives - complete with mistakes and with compromises and with unexpected connections made too. They're the sort of characters [...]

    18. I ended up liking this book more then I thought I would. I usually dislike books populated by whiney,spoiled and selfish characters and this book had plenty of them. The writing was good and story was interesting and they mostly ended up likable. 4 Stars

    19. ArghhhhThis book insults every part of my female being.Can't believe how anyone is capable of writing and publishing such bunch of unrealistic and insulting stuff about women.

    20. I'm still digesting this book. The book description sets the book up perfectly. The reader knows the basic facts and the characters involved. But this is contemporary lit which involves complex relationships. The best way to approach this book is to withhold judgment which is incredibly difficult, given the subject matter. This helps with understanding all points of view. Nathan is a middle aged college professor who stupidly has an affair with a vulnerable young woman. He loves his wife and his [...]

    21. "'Have you considered that you're in the wrong place? Maybe you think you're standing still because you are. You're the only one who can move yourself.'""Dear God, why did she ever let him in her bed? Becoming imprinted on a man was too easy. Sleep with one damned man in five years, boom, you're marked. Being wanted, even by the worst of them, opened the door to that awful gratitude brought on merely by the knowledge of that desire. Couple that with the simple pleasure of a warm body and having [...]

    22. This is one of those rare books where I did not particularly like any of the three main characters but I still really enjoyed reading the story. Caroline, Juliette, and Tia were all well drawn out characters that felt real and I became very involved with reading about the problems that each woman faced. I did not feel any connection to any of the characters but Meyers does such a good job of bringing all three woman to life that I found myself really getting into the story without feeling a conn [...]

    23. I agree with several other reviewers - the women in this novel were all so unlikable, I found it difficult to invest in, or root for, any of them! They seemed more like caricatures than characters - needy, self-loathing, fragile Tia still can't get over Nathan five years later; career-obsessed Caroline wants out of motherhood and wishes she could just have her "old life" back; beautiful, successful Juliette goes completely nuts when she learns about Nathan's daughter.As much as I disliked her, I [...]

    24. I loved this book - no surprise since Randy's first book "The Murderer's Daughters" was such a timely and beautifully written story. The Comfort of Lies is -to me - a story about the decisions we make in life: some well thought out; some spontaneous; some reckless. It's about learning how to live with those decisions and their consequences. The three women in the book are all women that we know. Or maybe they are women that we are or have been. The topics; infidelity,truth in our relationships,a [...]

    25. This another wonderful, hard- to- put -down book by Randy Susan Meyers, author of The Murderer's Daughters. The Comfort of Lies tells the story of three women who are connected by their relationship to one little girl. The women are complicated characters, facing difficult choices and confronting their internal and external beliefs about what it means to be a good mother, and ultimately what it means to love. The story is engaging, page turning and makes us think about our own beliefs about love [...]

    26. One thing that drives me crazy about this author's writing is that it is a knock out in re: to quality, but I have always felt that this author could go a bit darker and/or not have things wrap up with nice red ribbons. BUT SHE ALWAYS DOES! She did that again with this book that made me want to throw the book at the wall at the end and say YEAH RIGHT! Because it was a library bookI simply rolled my eyes.

    27. Oof, this was a good one. The Comfort of Lies explores the long-ranging ripple effects on several households following an infidelity that results in a pregnancy. Randy Susan Meyers writes very human characters; we see the grit of who they are, the self-doubt, the subtle changes that they make over time and the reasons behind those changes. I loved this book and know these characters will be with me for a long time to come. Thank you, Randy, and brava!

    28. So, I almost abandoned this book about half way through; when I got done reading it I wished I had. This is the type of book that completely rubs me the wrong way. All of the character's in the book are on a journey to discover that they are in fact exactly where they should be in their lives. None of them were likeable and the plot was slow, predictable and lacked emotion. This was not for me.

    29. 3.5 starsThree mothers. Two fathers. One daughter. What a tangled web we weaveThis book was refreshing for me, in that I had just read 3 or 4 books that I devoured quickly - they were can't-put-'em-down reads. Compared to the pace I had been on, this was like a leisurely visit, something to ponder over almost a whole week.And there was a lot to ponder.This book was challenging for me because I am adopted. And the mess that this turns into is exactly why I stay away from making any efforts to tra [...]

    30. Randy Susan Meyers has created a book that involves a subject that sends terror into the hearts of most wives, infidelity.In The Comfort Of Lies, she weaves a story of three women and how one choice affects all of their lives.None of these women are perfect and each have to deal with the choices they made. I found it hard to like any of these women, but I did feel sorry for each one of them in different ways.Tia was the other woman who ended up pregnant from her affair. She's a mess. Even up to [...]
