About the Book:
ONE LOVE STORY. TWO MARRIAGES. THREE VERSIONS OF THE TRUTH.
Skye Starling is overjoyed when her boyfriend, Burke Michaels, proposes after a whirlwind courtship. Though Skye seems to have the world at her fingertips―she’s smart, beautiful, and from a well-off family―she’s also battled crippling OCD ever since her mother’s death when she was eleven, and her romantic relationships have suffered as a result.
But now Burke―handsome, older, and more emotionally mature than any man she’s met before―says he wants her. Forever. Except, Burke isn’t who he claims to be. And interspersed letters to his therapist reveal the truth: he’s happily married, and using Skye for his own, deceptive ends.
In a third perspective, set thirty years earlier, a scrappy seventeen-year-old named Heather is determined to end things with Burke, a local bad boy, and make a better life for herself in New York City. But can her adolescent love stay firmly in her past―or will he find his way into her future?
On a collision course she doesn’t see coming, Skye throws herself into wedding planning, as Burke’s scheme grows ever more twisted. But of course, even the best laid plans can go astray. And just when you think you know where this story is going, you’ll discover that there’s more than one way to spin the truth.

LOVED this twisty, clever thriller! Please don’t read any spoilers for this book, it is best to jump right in. I found this book to be wonderfully addictive. I could not put it down until I learned how each of the separate narratives were connected!
I don’t know why but this book really lifted me out of a book slump when I read it. My favorite character was Skye, who has OCD. I loved how the author described the rituals Skye had to engage in and how Skye dealt with her behavior. I also loved the settings of the book. The author obviously knows New York City and the Hamptons and it shows!
Too Good to Be True is just one of those books that completely grabs your attention from the very beginning. I have to keep this review brief because I don’t want to give anything away about the plot. I loved the clever details and the alternating narratives. Is one of the main characters lying? It was very hard to figure this one out. I truly enjoyed every minute of this book and highly recommend it. Try to avoid spoilers if you can!

“The truth has to be somewhere in these tangled narratives. And I have to find it.”
