ARC review: Lies You Wanted to Hear by James Whitfield Thomson

Many thanks to Net Galley and Sourcebooks for providing me with the advanced reader's copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
Synopsis(via Goodreads):
When Lucy meets Matt on a blind date, Matt is instantly hooked; he sees Lucy as the fun, sexy, and wickedly smart girl of his dreams. Although she’s still getting over an old lover, Lucy is won over by Matt’s sweet, thoughtful nature. But 20 years later, alone in an empty house trying to imagine the lives of her two young children, Lucy comes to realize that the little lies you tell can create more damage than the truth you’re hiding.
This insomniac's opinion:
This novel started of with promise. I was immediately hooked and wanted to know who Lucy would end up with and why she no longer had her children. Did they die? Did she lose custody? The novel was full of promise.
However, the novel lost steam before the halfway mark and never regained it. It wasn't a bad novel, just mediocre and full of characters that weren't terribly likeable or interesting.
Worth staying up all night to read?
It wasn't for me, but then, it wasn't bad either.
3 stars. Neither here nor there.
