See how they lie by Sue Wallman

All’s not well at the Hummingbird Creek wellness resort. No one can see in. No one can get out… 
New from the talented author who brought you Lying About Last Summer: a psycho-chiller to wake up your darkest phobias. If you got to live in a luxury hotel with world-class cuisine, a state-of-the-art sports centre and the latest spa treatments, would you say ‘yes please’? 
Well, that’s kind of what Hummingbird Creek is like. No wonder Mae feels lucky to be there. It’s meant as a rich-kid’s sanatorium, but she isn’t sick. Her dad is the top psychiatrist there. But one day Mae breaks a rule. NOT a good idea. This place is all about rules – and breaking them can hurt you…

I did enjoy this book on the whole it was good but felt like it took a long time getting there at points.

For me what this book does well is it leaves a lot unsaid which keeps you guessing. You know something is wrong but you're never certain why things are like they are. The main character lives in an institution which from the outside seems perfect but once you start digging you can seeing that the perfectness is a cover for something much more sinister. I won't say too much on why because I think it would spoil it but I found myself utterly intrigued to find out more about it and wanting to uncover more of the secrets.

It's a thinker of a read and really intriguing.
